One of the longest established restaurants in the area, and regularly

always consistent and it is situated in central Moraira, by the seafront, and
specialising in locally caught fresh fish. Family run, the owners speak
English and provide an extremely efficient and friendly service that makes
each visit enjoyable - but it is pricey compared to other restaurants in the
region so set it aside as a night to dress up and enjoy a good meal. They do
a speciality of whole Sea Bass baked in salt, Lubina con sal which is quite
superb. They are open all day, serving excellent tapas in the separate bar
area and outside tables. It looks up-market but don't be put off as they are
far from snooty. Important - if the owners recommend something special that
is not on the menu then check the prices as they tend to suggest dishes that

a drink at lunchtime on the outside terrace. There aren't many tables so
booking is essential during the summer, especially for the outside tables, as
it is known to be one of the best restaurants for outside dining in the area.
Particularly good value are their set priced lunches (Fri-Sun) and dinners

right for Cabo La Nao at the second t-junction, and the restaurant is to the
LA ESTRELLA Avenida de l'Arenal, Javea. Tel 96 579 0802
A consistently good French restaurant in Javea with
friendly, efficient service from the two couples who run it and provide food
that is spot on and reasonably priced. The whole restaurant has a French feel
to it with pastel decor and large windows that open onto the street, and tables
on the pavement. Seasonal specials and desserts especially good. Found on one
of the street off the Javea beach area where the restaurants front the walkway.
LA MASIA DE LA SAL Avda. Mediterrani 182, Javea Tel: 96 579 5876
Lovely Spanish restaurant frequented by locals serving
very good fresh authentic dishes, especially paellas. Pretty outlook onto a
large patio, where they also have outside tables. Friendly and helpful staff.
Reasonably priced. Opposite Javea beach between the old port and the new
stretch of beach.
LA RUSTICA Camino Cabanos, Javea. Tel: 96 577 0855
Well cooked and presented Belgian food, in an old
'rustic' villa which is popular and is best to book in advance. Take the road
from Benitachell to Javea beach (a mile after Benitachell and turn right with
the sign for L'Scala to your right), and when you arrive to the first
t-junction turn left and the restaurant is about 50 yards to the left.

LOS REMOS Paseo del Amanecer-el Arenal, bloque 10 local 9 Tel: 96 647
Very good large bustling French restaurant on the main

Crta Benitachell-Javea, 96 579 3764.
More formal than Meson de Paco above (found on the same
road), similarly popular, and serves good food, in a beautiful Hacienda style
setting with plenty of outside tables. They even have an enclosed play area. No
children’s menu but they are happy for you to share or make a half portion.
Well worth a visit at lunch as menu del dia available at approx 14 euros. Full
nearly every night of the week Booking essential. Not cheap.

Popular and friendly restaurant that serves good Spanish
food at reasonable prices and has a large outside terrace with plenty of

Benitachell-Javea road and you will see it on the right after about a mile.
PARADOR DE JAVEA Avda. del

Fishes, seafood and rices are here combined with the
orchard products, making possible some really exquisite dishes, like paella
with duck and red peppers, or paella with vegetables of the season. Citrus
fruits (oranges, tangerines) are exceptional here too.

TABERNA LOS HERMANOS Playa Arenal, Javea
Very easy to find as it is opposite the Parador in Javea
which is well signposted. This is a typical Spanish tapas bar that, although
being near the beach, still serves reasonably priced food for the locals and is
pleasant to look at. The menu is in Spanish but the family are very friendly
and helpful and you can point to the tapas display on the counter and you can
also order freshly cooked fish dishes.
Lovely restaurant specializing in French-Basque cuisine
with Mediterranean touches.
