Our favourite restaurants!
In Jávea, there are a huge number of cosy and good restaurants. The selection is wide; authentic Spanish tapas bars, trendy beach bars where you can enjoy cocktails and also very tasty food, but also chic restaurants for absolute fine dining.
At the fantastic Arenal sandy beach on the promenade, there are plenty of great places to go for drinks, tapas and/or a tasty lunch or dinner. Chabada , Acqua and La Bambula are among our favourites! Although we are often here, we would like to introduce you to a selection of restaurants that you probably won’t find as tourists!
In the old village of Jávea, in one of the narrow authentic streets, you will find the restaurant “Volta i Volta”. This restaurant is run by a Spanish/Italian couple. They give a personal twist to traditional Mediterranean recipes. And they do so superbly! They work with fresh products and everything is homemade. Besides the normal menu, they offer a 3-course lunch menu every day; highly recommended!
For something different from tapas, ‘Casa della Pasta’ serves, among other things, an exquisite buffalo mozzarella as a starter and delicious pastas, risottos and Italian meat dishes as main courses. The restaurant has a spacious covered outdoor terrace and a small playground for children. The restaurant is cosy, the food is delicious and the prices are very inviting. The restaurant is always full in summer, so make a reservation if you would like to spend an evening here.
Our culinary favourite is restaurant ´Tula´. This small restaurant can be found behind the Arenal boulevard. Tula was awarded a Michelin star in November 2019. The restaurant is run by a young couple, Clara is hostess and Borja is in the kitchen. Both previously worked at the world-famous restaurant Quique Dacosta (3 Michelin stars) in the neighbouring resort of Dénia. Would you like to have lunch or dinner at Tula during your holiday? Then make sure to book your table in time.
Of course, a good address for a Spanish paella should not be missed! Restaurant ´Mezquida´ is run by a Spanish family and one of their specialities is the traditional Spanish paella, delicious! The restaurant at Jávea’s tennis club also serves a surprisingly delicious paella. Prefer to enjoy a paella at home? At both restaurants you can order and take away the paella.
