In every visit we make to Alicante we always make a stop here. We love eating tapas in the bar as well as being seated formally in the dining room. The food is always fresh, creative, and delicious.

Arrived at 1, never any seats by the bar after1.30. Excellent service, very nice house wine and huge choice of tasty Tapas. It was pricey but we only go occasionally for a treat and it made a change to be amongst all the well heeled Spanish and enjoy the ambience.

Nou Manolin is a very traditional restaurant in the center of Alicante. The entrance is not easy to find but it is very worth searching for it. My favorite area is the big Bar on the ground floor. If you are there early enough - around 2 or a bit earlier - you should get a place at the bar... More

This is a friendly, local place to find fresh fish and shellfish perfectly prepared. Typical local dishes are excellent and to the taste of US tourists, nothing spicy or scandalous foreign to taste. Prices are moderate. Service is excellent. But a good advise: in this coastal city only fish caught the previous day is served in restaurants. Thus, since there... More

If you want to eat tapas like the Spanish do: visit Nou Manolin. Be sure to be at time as the cue builds rapidly and the place to sit is downstairs at the bar. The waiters behind the bar are artist and the noisy atmosphere contributes to the experience. As desert take " a piece of heaven" see picture.

Recommended by our hotel concierge and it was fantastic. We never eat dessert and we splurged there on a chocolate dessert that was amazing. That was after the foie gras appetizer that was unbelievable. Rich food but simply amazing.

We were seated around the bar in which is stored the raw meat & fish. The waiters are very gentil and competent and very attentive. The food is of an excellent quality and served one portion after the other one. I recommend the ham, chipperones (small squid containing the inkt), grilled vegetables and grilled shrimps. The white housewine is a... More
