AMARRE 152 Port de la Fontana - Javea. Tel: 96 579 0629
Located on a small marina, hence the name, which means mooring. The speciality of the house is sea bass baked in salt. Other excellent fish dishes are cooked in a traditional fisherman's wooden oven. Best to book.
CLOUDS 5 Calle Pio X, Puerto de Javea. Tel: 96 579 5461/5463
The food has improved considerably lately, which is just as well, as it is worth visiting just for the spectacular views of the whole bay of Javea from this pleasant restaurant, perched on the top of Hotel Javea, with windows on all sides and a glass roof that completely opens up. Go to Javea port which is situated in the eastern corner of Javea bay and you will see the Hotel Javea poking out on top.
EL GIARDINO Crta Benitachell-Javea, Javea. Tel: 96 579 5195
Across the road from Bar Masena above, this Swiss restaurant has also had good reports.
EL NEGRESCO C/Nantes, Cartra Cabo La Nao - Javea. Tel: 96 646 0552
Well away from the bustle of the front-line in Javea. This very stylish, Michelin recommended, restaurant looks run-down from the outside and ostentatious inside but looks can be deceptive! The waiters are friendly and attentive and the food is very good indeed with an interesting procedure of keeping one half of your main course warm on a hot tray whilst serving you the first half. Take the road from Benitachell to Javea beach (a mile after Benitachell and turn right with the sign for L'Scala to your right), and turn right on the second set of traffic lights and the restaurant is set back to the right.
GOTA DEL MAR Crta Cabo La Nao 531, Cap Marti, Javea. Tel 96 577 1648
Set in a large private villa, they have tables outside around the pool and it is popular with locals. A good value four course menu including wine. Take the road from Benitachell to Javea beach (a mile after Benitachell and turn right with the sign for L'Scala to your right), but turn right for Cabo La Nao at the second t-junction, and the restaurant is to the right.
LA ESTRELLA Avenida de l'Arenal, Javea. Tel 96 579 0802
A consistently good French restaurant in Javea with friendly, efficient service from the two couples who run it and provide food that is spot on and reasonably priced. The whole restaurant has a French feel to it with pastel decor and large windows that open onto the street, and tables on the pavement. Seasonal specials and desserts especially good. Found on one of the street off the Javea beach area where the restaurants front the walkway.
LA MASIA DE LA SAL Avda. Mediterrani 182, Javea Tel: 96 579 5876
Lovely Spanish restaurant frequented by locals serving very good fresh authentic dishes, especially paellas. Pretty outlook onto a large patio, where they also have outside tables. Friendly and helpful staff. Reasonably priced. Opposite Javea beach between the old port and the new stretch of beach.
LA RUSTICA Camino Cabanos, Javea. Tel: 96 577 0855
Well cooked and presented Belgian food, in an old 'rustic' villa which is popular and is best to book in advance. Take the road from Benitachell to Javea beach (a mile after Benitachell and turn right with the sign for L'Scala to your right), and when you arrive to the first t-junction turn left and the restaurant is about 50 yards to the left.
LAS BRISAS DE JAVEA Jesus Pobre rd nr Javea 96 579 4709
Lovely venue, good for kids as they often have a bouncy castle or play area. Variety of food. British with a Spanish feel!
LOS REMOS Paseo del Amanecer-el Arenal, bloque 10 local 9 Tel: 96 647 0776
Very good large bustling French restaurant on the main promenade of restaurants on Javea beach. Looks touristy but they serve good food at reasonable prices, considering its position. Seafood a speciality. Not cheap.
MASENA Crta Benitachell-Javea, 96 579 3764.
More formal than Meson de Paco above (found on the same road), similarly popular, and serves good food, in a beautiful Hacienda style setting with plenty of outside tables. They even have an enclosed play area. No children’s menu but they are happy for you to share or make a half portion. Well worth a visit at lunch as menu del dia available at approx 14 euros. Full nearly every night of the week Booking essential. Not cheap.
MESON DEL PACO Crta Benitachell-Javea, Javea. Tel: 96 579 0485
Popular and friendly restaurant that serves good Spanish food at reasonable prices and has a large outside terrace with plenty of tables. Large portions so order carefully and try the fish of the day. Take the Benitachell-Javea road and you will see it on the right after about a mile.
PARADOR DE JAVEA Avda. del Mediterráneo, 233, Javea. Tel 965790200
Fishes, seafood and rices are here combined with the orchard products, making possible some really exquisite dishes, like paella with duck and red peppers, or paella with vegetables of the season. Citrus fruits (oranges, tangerines) are exceptional here too.
RODAT Calle de la Murciana, 9. Ctra. Cabo de la Nao, Javea. Tel 96 647 0710
Superb cuisine and an excellent wine list.
SCALLOPS of JAVEA Javea Arenal Tel 96 577 1488
Most meals come with chips! Can't argue about the value. Most wines include full bottle of house wine. If you can't drink it, they give you a takeaway!!
TABERNA LOS HERMANOS Playa Arenal, Javea
Very easy to find as it is opposite the Parador in Javea which is well signposted. This is a typical Spanish tapas bar that, although being near the beach, still serves reasonably priced food for the locals and is pleasant to look at. The menu is in Spanish but the family are very friendly and helpful and you can point to the tapas display on the counter and you can also order freshly cooked fish dishes.
VILLA MEDITERRANEA
Lovely restaurant specializing in French-Basque cuisine with Mediterranean touches.
