The food was absolutely stunning. Few dishes absolutely top of the top e.g. leek / potato cold soup with oysters or beetroot with caviar. Strongly recommended.

The menu was unexpected for us, as we were looking for a restaurant with traditional Spanish cuisine in Alicante.But our impressions were very positive ❤️???? The author's cuisine turned out to be very tasty, healthy and stylishly decorated. We had oyster soup and quinoa with squid with pleasure. The paella was excellent, which was exactly the goal of our restaurant search. And the ice cream and sweets were of incredible divine flavor . Special thanks for the opportunity to bring your four-legged friend. We highly recommend a visit to this restaurant!!!! 10/10 ????

First of all, this is likely the best food served in Alicante. Secondly, the service is second to none and Nancy was amazing. Thirdly, though expensive, it was more than worth it’s money. We will be back!

It was very minimalist inside, but I actually enjoyed that, helping you pay more attention to your company and the food. Service was excellent, though sometimes they spoke a little too softly. Very attentive in general. Food was excellent from the start to the end - a mix of modern techniques with traditional Spanish ingredients and plates. High quality ingredients - you can tell from the texture and flavors. And very importantly, we did not leave feeling hungry, as has happened in other high quality restaurants.

A truly amazing Christmas Lunch, so much invention, variety not to mention the quality of the meal. We went with the wine pairing which was a great choice. Fabulous wines, well matched to the dishes and well explained. Service was excellent. Happy to say this was one of the best meals we've eaten in a long time. A first class experience.

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.
