Why you should give me money

Restaurants at the Costa Blanca

This week I’m going to talk about some nice places to eat out near your villa.  There are many great restaurants and since the crisis is hitting everywhere they have become quite affordable, most of them offer “degustation” menu’s that give great value for your money.

This time I’ll be talking about one old familiar one, Eleven, at Moraira; and one I just recently discovered “La Trastienda” in Javea.


“La Trastienda” is located in the historic centre of Javea, at walking distance form villa Branca (it’s owners introduced me to the restaurant and I can’t thank them enough).

It advertises itself as a wine specialist and the ones they offer are indeed great.  Our site’s photographer, Ton Out, our local wine  specialist was positively delighted, and all he had was the house wine.  Now I could start pretending I understand anything about wines, but I really don’t.  I rarely like wine but the one I had from here I liked.  If you wan’t any more information I advise you take a look at their website.
Now food is something I do know a lot about and theirs is great.  They have a great selection of the traditional tapas but also normal dishes.  If you would really like a taste of Spain order the “Jamón ibérico de bellota”  dried ham of pigs fed only on acorns, a real treat.  My own recommendation is that you try the terriyaki salmon which is mouthwatering good.

The restaurant is not to big so be sure to make a reservation before going, calling +34 96 579 4864



Eleven” is a grand-cafe and restaurant near the castle of Moraira.    They have a modern and good tasting kitchen and both the terrace and the restaurant look great.

During the day and the evening you can enjoy a cup of coffee or some snacks on the terrace while you watch the sea and the castle of Moraira. If you want to eat you can choose from a  great a selection or take one of the menus.

I recommend the fillet steak a la Rosini and the goose liver raviolis.
