Javea has many fine restaurants - enclosed are some of restaurants we have tried over the last two years:

Amare 152 - Style: Modern Spanish, location near the Arenal. Tel 96 5790629.Unusual but lovely setting & actually feels very airy Sit in the Terraza & watch the boats potter in & dock just 30 metres away. This is where the smartest locals eat as well as tourists on elastic budgets. Food is modern Spanish - lots of rice dishes but very good seafood 7 & some fantastic starters. Overall an elegant night out - excellent food & wine and you are really only paying an extra 10 -15% more than a mediocre restaurant. Directions from the port, past the Parador, first right at the roundabout, first right again & you should see it below the apartment block - just by the boating quays.

Los Remus - Style: Modern Spanish, location Arenal. Tel 96 647 0776. Exceptional service & food, some of the starters - scrambled eggs with fresh prawns & mushrooms & the best Gazpacho with excellent guarnicion. Main courses - lots of fish, especially good Prawns in Armagnac - enormous prawns in a rich brandy sauce served with rice in the skillet in which they are cooked .Book a table inside where they have good aircon 7 watches the sun go down over the Montgo through the enormous windows. Directions couldn't be easier - opposite end of the beach to the Parador.

Al Giardinho - Style: Italian, location, on the road to Benitachell. Tel, no 96 646 1658. This is set in a garden with the villa being the Bar & kitchen - it looks great. The food is good, sometimes the service is good & sometimes you should count yourself damned lucky to be allowed in. Kids love Italian & the food is really good if you fancy a change from fish, steak 7 rice menus. Lovely settings but recommend wearing insect repellent. Directions - either drive past the tennis club towards Mercadona, past Barclays; turn right, follow the road for 2km & you are there. - Or head out of town as if you are going to the airport.

Posito - Style: Spanish & location Port Promenade. Tel no 96 579 3063. Great food, fish, meat etc but what marks it out is the chance to eat on the Promenade 20 feet from the sea and to have the local paseando along the Prom right by your table - great for people watching with a pleasant cool breeze blowing.

Cafe Austrica - Style: international but not cordon Bleu, location on the Arenal. Tel no 96 647 1004. Not an event meal but still good value for money. Starters from deep fried camembert in orange sauce to Gazpacho - mains good fish, steaks, Pizzas. Good for kids & good for I can't be bothered to cook tonight.

Some 95 other restaurants from Scallops (3 course menu for 6 Euros - great breakfasts) to some of the finest fish restaurants on the Costa Blanca can be found in Javea.
