This is the type of bar/restaurant that depicts all that is good about Spanish catering and hospitality. Recently refurbished in modern, clean lines, it was a surprisingly bustling place for a Wednesday lunchtime. Nonetheless, the service was impeccable throughout, rapid and professional, with every attention to fine detail, as if we were the only customers in the house. All the tapas were served in good-sized portions and cooked to perfection. After six different dishes, shared between four of us, we just about had room for our 'postre' and coffee. Would definitely recommend this for a no-nonsense, good-value, wholly-satisfying lunchtime meal.

This was our second visit, and we were not disappointed. Food was as excellent as we remembered, and service great too. The children too loved their mains, and with two very drinkable bottles of wine the price was extremely reasonable too. We'll be back on...MoreHola! Encantados de haberlos tenido de nuevo por esta casa, muy agradecidos y les esperamos siempre que gusten ;)

The minute you arrive at La Masia you sort of know they take the food very seriously here. There is a rustic aspect to the restaurant but beneath that there is some very sharp cooking going on.

High class all round.
Quite luxurious surroundings, although summer dinner is served on the Terrace outside.
Very high quality cuisine : an exquisite and vast succession of small dishes, 20 different ones with the Elementos menu. Excellent Spanish wines served in the Nacional wine accompaniment option, 8 different types, generously served.
Skilled service.
The prices seem excessive sometimes, but this is high flying.
I would return and recommend.

Restaurante Frisone

Reviewed By rockin ron - Glasgow

It is in the town centre,but take a cab here,as we took 45 minutes to find it. However,once ensconced,the standards became evident even in the making of our aperitifs - a G & T and Campari served on a trolley to our table and exactingly made beside us. All before we were shown to our table and realised that apart from 1 other couple,we were the sole customers on a Wednesday night. There was a language problem ; our Espanol not up to the numerous ingredients of each delicate course,so we opted for the tasting menu at a reasonable 30€ and it was excellent. Small but delicious samples of scallop,salmon
,rabbit and more,and even the dessert had cheese and a Baileys mixture.a great 'find' for foodies who happen to be in the town.

Sinapi Restaurante

Sinapi offers its clients a wide range of successful international meals. Premium hamburgers, artisanly made in our kitchen with selected meats from mature cattle in the chamber, Iberian pork and country chicken, seasoned with homemade sauces, fresh vegetable and tasty artisan bread. Pizzas with dough made from tip, with flour, tomato and mozzarella imported from Italy. The dough is stretched by hand without any mechanical means so as not to negatively influence the cooking, which is done directly on the kiln stone. Roll and turkish plate with national meats transformed, seasoned and cooked at the time of demand (not the typical skewer spinning). In addition to a wide variety of starters and homemade desserts. All our menu is served in our cozy lounge and at home. See you soon.

A small restaurant occupying a corner location, comprising 7 x 4 seater & 4 x 2 seater tables.
The interior takes on a black & white theme - White tables, black chairs & table cloths. Food served on white plates or oblong black slate tiles & black serviettes.
The colour theme continues into the clean, tidy & fresh smelling toilets where there are white tiled walls, greyish/black floors, white porcelain with black soap dispenser, hand dryer & waste bin.
No mistaking the "ladies" from the "gents". Both entrance doors clearly identified with large colourful illustrations.
There is no visible bar, but a selection of beers, wines, soft drinks etc are on offer.
Staff pleasant, polite, efficient & helpful. Spanish spoken, however some English too. Menus in Spanish. Disabled friendly.
Nice selection of hamburgers, pizzas, sandwiches, etc. Various desserts available: Brownies, pancakes (crepes) with chocolate sauce & ice cream etc. All food nicely cooked, very tasty & beautifully presented. All very reasonably priced.
A very popular venue which gets busy. To save disappointment it is advisable to make a reservation.
I will use this restaurant again when next in the area. Recommend .

First ones in at 20.30. Vietnamese rolls tasty but soggy, angus steak dish ok but korean "picante" ribs not spicy at all. Waiting staff unprofessional (tried to clear plates while still eating). Rushed our service as though trying to clear our table. Wine selection reasonable as are prices but our last night in elche spoiled by our selection of this venue.
