Staff is great, especially one waiter who can really sing OPERA! We were blown away! The food was great but service outstands this place. I really recommend you this place for dinner!

Whenever in the area we always visit this charming beach front restaurant. The owners and staff always welcoming & make your dining experience a pleasure from start to finish. We usually go to this restaurant at lunch time, so take advantage of the reasonably priced Menu del Dia. Its always tasty and freshly prepared and represents good value for money.... More

We spent a very pleasant afternoon at the restaurant. The menu de dis was good value and reasonably varied. It was also well cooked with the distinct impression that care and knowledge were used in the preparation. Wine was of reasonable quality and the service was efficient but not intrusive. Well worth a visit.

Given its location on the beachfront of this picturesque village, this restaurant has lots of potential and, while the (English) waiter was charming an helpful, the food was average at best and the overall experience was quite disappointing. It was too much like a restaurant that caters only for tourists and not the local market, of which there are many... More

This restaurant has an extensive menu. The starters were generous portions and we decided to share a paella which was very tasty. We also had delicious ice cream based desserts and the three courses with a bottle of House red came to just 54€ for the two of us. A choice of complimentary liqueurs was offered when the bill arrived... More

Visited this 'beach' front restaurant yesterday. Food was very good and service even better. A great way to watch the world go by for a couple of hours.

Visited following reviews. Cajan chicken was basic but tasty. The chicken with spinach and mustard sauce was a gunky mess! Too much sauce overpowered the dish. Could not recommend

When staying in Villajoyosa last September, El Guitarra quickly became one of our favourites, so it was fitting that we had lunch there yesterday when visiting the town for a day. Nothing has changed; the same menu giving a wide variety of dishes ranging from their absolutely delicious Gazpacho to the freshest salads and excellent meats and fish, all prepared... More
