    Un restaurante con 1* debería ser una experiencia gastronómica fantástica y la verdad que fue bastante decepcionante. A parte de tener precios bastante altos en relación a calidad y cantidad. Varias cosas fueron decepcionantes. Tardaron casi 20’ entre que nos sirvieron las bebidas hasta que nos tomaron nota. Estuvimos casi toda la cena con una mesa supletoria a menos de 40 cm de mi donde colocaban todos los platos sucios de otras mesas. Pedimos una guarnicion de patatitas braseada y nos trajeron patatas fritas de bolsa, la verdad que nos quedamos a cuadros. O realmente esa es la guarnicion o la camarera no se entera de nada. El salmonete muy escaso e insipido. Añadiendo que te cobran 8€ por el servicio de pan, un autentico robo . Decepcionante la verdad.

    When in Alicante we always visit Monastrell.. Maria Is innovative and has a perfect sense for unexpected taste combination.. Presentation of the dishes verbally as well as on the plate is perfect. The sommelier is the best in Spain! I strongly recommend a visit to Monastrell! / Magnus

    Nötallergiker i sällskapet. Informerades om två gånger. Trots det serverades det nötter till nötallergiker. I paketet ingick champagne till aperitif Debirtrades 9 eur pp eftersom vi bad om cava innan middagen. Invände för debiteringen då sa se att vi fått påfyllning som kostar 9 EU-representation glas. Dyrt eftersom det var Max 6 cl per glas. Detta krediterades men det är iaf inte ok att debitera för något som ingår…

    The service was absolutely fantastic, and the ambience was lovely. The food itself was a bit of a mixed bag. Some fantastic dishes, and some a little sickly. The portioning for the main course was a little off, with some of the group receiving significantly different portion sizes from one another. It was a highly enjoyable evening, but there were only a few dishes that really wowed.

    El restaurante es una pequeña joya, muy bien situado. María José y Lorena la sumiller hacen un gran tándem y mejoran enormemente la experiencia con su acogida, perfectamente rematad por su muy atento servicio. Platos deliciosos, originales, con mucho sentido. Y el maridaje de Lorena es una maravilla. Sólo dos peros: había un perrito en una mesa cercana muy latoso (no entiendo que se acepten) y nos faltó una despedida final de María José y Lorena (tema menor, pero como mejora).

    All the appetizers were of the same kind of “no taste”. The meet in One of the main menus was with 80% fat and even when we notified the staff they did nothing about it. The deserts were superb.

    Som vanligt fantastisk service och kvalitet på maten. Är självklart inte billigt, men ändå prisvärt, i synnerhet med tanke på miljö, atmosfär, service och engagemang från alla som arbetar där, inklusive Maria. Kan bara varmt rekommenderas, utan tvekan!

    Es la segunda vez que venimos. La primera en 2019 y el menú ha cambiado en bastante de sus platos. Valoramos lo que supone innovar y en este caso es indudable y como tal te brinda la oportunidad comparar. En este caso he de decir que nos agradó más los platos de 2019 pero sin duda volveremos.

    Not a single dish was enjoyed. Nothing was prepared well and nothing came out at the same temperature throughout. We’ve experienced many Michelin restaurants around the world and in our opinion this restaurant does not meet the grade. Three hours of a disappointing experience.

    Amazing experience. Service very attentive and informative throughout. We opted to enjoy wine pairings with each course which is definitely the correct choice. A thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining evening of Mediterranean and Alicante-based dining options. Thank you to Maria and her staff. Would definitely visit again and recommend to those of you seeking Michelin-star dining. You will not be disappointed.
