Excellent service and passion for the delicious aged meat. You gotta love it, perfectly grilled, ready to trigger every taste bud... the best meat!

Strange interior, didn't get it. Lots of logs stuck around the walls which made it dark and visually boring. The food was okay, but again not great. My husbands t-bone steak was more fat than meat. Also the setting is on a busy road which obviously doesn't show Altea at its best. Hate leaving negative reviews but it lacked the... More

What an absolute rip-off this restaurant is. Portion sizes were miniscule with no veg/salad or potato offered. Lamb chops were wafer thin. Leg of lamb was good but tiny. Accompanying bread was charged at €2 per slice!!! To top it off the staff were really rude - they tried to take my plate away whilst I was still eating. Not... More

Went with friends on their recommendation and was unimpressed. Seafood was outrageously over salted, and the steak was fairly tasteless...a shame for the effort they seemed to go to. Add to that the decor and mediocre service, I won't be returning any time soon.

Visited this restaurant on our recent trip and it failed to impress on any level. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived (about 9pm) but it took some while for anyone to seat us despite the staffs (2) being aware of our arrival.
