Where to Eat in Javea: The Best Restaurants and Bars

February 17, 2018 Jana Sager

The coastal jewel of Javea is bookended by rocky headlands and is a prime example of old world meets modern energy. The "old town" district is filled with remains of walls built to keep out pirates, as well as a 14th-century church. Visit the beautiful white-sand Arenal beach, brimming with shops, restaurants and, in the summer, hopping beachside bars and nightclubs.

La Cocina

Relaxed dining in a friendly, family run restaurant, providing a varied menu with meat, fish, vegetarian & vegan options. Menu is GLUTEN FREE. Childrens menu available. Outside dining on our Terrace in the summer months.

We visited La Cocina on a Tuesday evening. We were not disappointed. The menu choice is superb. We had risotto and avocado salad to start and the flavours were fantastic. For mains we had steak strips and blackened Cajun chicken. Both again superb. The owners are very professional but friendly too. We would recommend it 100% and will definitely visit again.

Situated just off the main road in a very pretty little plaza so not the easiest place to find. Taken there by friends so didn't really know what to expect. Staff very friendly and a nicely laid out restaurant with lots of room between tables. We ordered off the menu Del dia which wasn't printed but recited by the waitress. The choice was very limited, only 2 choices for each course. I had the fish soup to start which was really good followed by the meatballs which again were very good. Surprisingly there was a choice of 5 or 6 desserts. Overall the food was really good just think there should be a minimum of 3 dishes to choose from for each course. Will definitely go again but maybe when we can sit outside as the plaza is very pretty.

Reviewed By fanoffrance - Loeten, Norway

Obviously I'm exaggerating, and probably demonstrating my ignorance, but we were quite turned off by the tasting menu here. Everything semed conscientiously prepared, but to our palates, most items were bitter or metallic in taste, heavy in consistency, and pasty in texture. I dined here a la carte a few years ago; while I found the recipes a bit too eccentric and daring on that occasion as well, I was satisfied ehough to want to give the place a second try. This chef seems to have set off in his own direction--fine if you like it, but we won't be back!

El Gaucho

Reviewed By Deessert - Main Beach, Australia

Love this Argentinian steak restaurant. The meat is cooked on an open wood fired grill and served with vegetables. They also offer whole fish in banana leaves for those who don’t feel like meat. Interesting fit out and art display. Lovely Terrace for warm days. Staff are attentive and many are long term employees. Great value as well. Perfect for a large function. 15 minute drive from Javea Arenal.

Four of us went to Nesfor for dinner last night and it was wonderful. Located on a fairly quiet side street partway between Javea port and Old Town, we sat outside on the Terrace. The restaurant decor is modern and minimalist. The service was friendly...MoreThank you so much for your opinion.

Creme De La Creme

Reviewed By fanoffrance - Loeten, Norway

I'm sitting here planning my visit to Javea next month, and realized that I never reviewed this patisserie that I love so much! Must be because I don't think of it as a restaurant, although I know it has tables. The location isn't picturesque, but pleasant and close to the beach. Cordial and efficient service. I always buy several items so I'll have some goodies to accompany morning coffee for the next few days. They can compete with the best of France. My mouth is watering just thinking about my next visit--yum!
