Went there because of the excellent trip-advisor comments. Arrived 2pm, but were asked to leave because the kitchen was clean. Restaurant looked very nice, but if you do not want to be disapponted it is wise to call in advance and ask if you are welcome.

We have visited La Costera many times and it has been unfailingly good. The restaurant itself is lovely whether sitting inside or out and the staff are always charming. The food is excellent and reasonably priced and it fully deserves it's number 1 place on Trip Advisor. Thank you

Wonderfull place, in a little corner in magical Altea. A cosy restaurant with very good service in many different languages. As amuse bouche a pumpkin soupe with cinnamon and ham-bread role. I ate slowcooked piglet in dijon mustard sauce. The taste, structure and serving of the food was amazing. This is a very strong five star for a good price.... More
