Thank you for the Pate takeaway makes it... More

First impression was that the place was tastefully decorated and furnished - contemporary without being ultra modern. The exciting menu includes items not frequently seen in Javea. My menu selection was an Indonesian salad, followed by... More

The most delicious meal with attention to detail, being a coeliac is usually a nightmare eating out but this wonderful restaurant with an extremely imaginative menu was a pure delight to dine in . Nothing was too much trouble and we all had a delightful lunch, would recommend to anyone who enjoys beautiful food

We visited with a coeliac and a person extremely allergic to fish and all of us had many delicious dishes to choose from. We love this trendy menu and the lovely presentation of the dishes.

Lovely choice and flavors. Sea Bream, Pork, Prawns, Chicken, all were spot on. along with this came great service. Strangely being told the Lemon Cheesecake... More

La Cocina is small but elegant, with very friendly owner-service, and an interesting menu. Their food is delicious, notably the pate and the Moroccan lamb dish.
