Description: Enjoy a relaxed meal in an old finca surrounded by trees and a vegetable garden where we grow our own biological vegetables, that we will serve on your table. On the grill we prepare the best meat cuts and in our oven we prepare local delicacies. We encourage the "slow food movement". Come and enjoy the experience!

A hidden gem. Fantastic food. Excellent service. We had a table for two outside under trees, jasmine bushes, colourful lighting.
Would recommend to everyone. Food was so fresh. Special Meat platter was very nice, black pudding to die for. Yum yum.

This place is a little oasis, set as it is, in a pretty garden where the outside dining area is under a canopy of cooling foliage. The place has a lovely relaxed ambiance and has a very unpretentious feel to it.

The service was excellent, the staff were friendly and efficient. The paella was one of the tastiest we have had. It was cooked beautifully and deservedly was the outstanding course of the meal.

Well worth a visit.

We had a fabulous dinner, much of it created from home grown ingredients. The gazpacho was one of the best my husband had ever tasted, and my aubergine starter was equally delicious.
The mixed grill was fantastic, including a very tasty black pudding. Service was very friendly and attentive, with the staff understanding the menu and wine list well.

Set in a pretty garden setting overlooking countryside. A very intimate setting Tables made out of wagon wheels, Old 78 vinyl records used as place mats, plus lots of other interesting features. We went for lunch and had the most delicious paella and the best sangria in Javea. The humous and aubergine starter was a hit with us all. Cannot wait to return on our next visit to Spain.

Having read the reviews my wife and I were looking forward to our dinner. The venue is set in a large open area with its own kitchen garden. Diners can eat indoors or outside. The indoor experience is a little eccentric being set within what, I understand, was previously an antique shop selling largely artefacts from India. The food, especially the sea-bass was tasty, but generally the menu was not inspired.
