Excellent value drinks with an extremely friendly and prompt service. Tapas smelt delicious although we did not have the opportunity to sample them. Great place to watch the sea and the world go by.

Situated right in the heart of Moraira on a corner overlooking the promenade and the Castle. There is not an extensive tapas menu but more than enough options to choose from at very reasonable prices. Even if you are not hungry it is a great place to sit and people watch.

Been in here a ton of times and it never disappoints with the quality of food and drink but also the friendliness of the staff. Sangria is lovely here and we love the potato bravas. Altogether a really nice place with views over the sea and the prices are moderate.

Love this spot although expensive to eat and drink. Had food previously but on this occasion we had a fabulous mojito. Over from the sea so good to sit and nosey.

Tapas we chose were well prepared (mushrooms with ham, fried squid), but overall selection is not very elaborated. Tapas bar is facing promenade, so sitting outside is recommended. House red wine is very good, not cheap variety.

This is the prefect place to sit right on the sea front and watch the world go by. The guys working here were so friendly and nice. We ordered garlic prawns to share and they were hands down the best prawns i have ever had in my entire life, I dont think I will have anything like that again! I... More

Those reviewers who rave on TA about Xambel's great Tapas have either never had good Tapas or had too many copas at Xambel! They are not bad, but they are so not Spanish style. Starts with the USA-oversized Tapas plates. You can barely fit 3 or 4 on your table!! They are almost main course size. Quality is OK to... More
