We walked by the day before and saw this place posting "urban Mex restaurant". It had been a long time since we had Mexican, that we were eager to try it.
The restaurant had some nice decorations, definitely giving good homage to the Mexican theme. But we would not recommend coming here for the food, but at most, maybe in the evenings for some drinks or some of the entertainment.
This is for three reasons:
1) upon siting down, we had a plate of nuts placed on the table with our drinks. When the bill came, only then did we see it was billed to us at 2Eur.
2) advertised as daily lunch menus starting at 9Eur, even after the manager explained these to us, we selected the available menu items as he directed, our food bill still came to 16Eur each.
3) after having the manager apologize several times for some arguments that were happening between what we could only imagine to be his business partners, he "invited" us for a margarita. His invitation was billed to us at 5Eur each...
We left, still hungry, wallets empty and generally displeased.
Favorite Dish: The food was adequate, but not exceptional. The pineapple in the salsa for the pastor tacos was great, but everything else was just average.
The portions however were extremely small for the price. The quesadillas for example were 7Eur each and were about 10cm wide. The tacos were about three bites each.

We were looking for Italian food and we could smell this place from a couple blocks away. Our noses found it quite easily. The dining area is quite small and cozy, with a split level dining area. The upper level will give you a nice view out the window or over the banister to the kitchen/bar area.
The man who served us was overly kind, courteous and offered just about any special request that was not on the menu. There were also some specials written on the chalk board, so best review those too.
Favorite Dish: The day's special pasta negra with salmon was delicious, as was the tagliatelle and just about every other thing. And coming in at 30EUR for two people, including drinks, the price was quite reasonable for a semi-elegant, semi-romantic delicious dinner.

El Asador del Puerto let me discover some excellent specialties inspired by the fusion of the best Castilian and Mediterranean cuisine tradition. The meticulous art to cook the meat surprise my taste sense. An excellent quality meat was so tender than you almost do not need a knife to cut it ;-)
Favorite Dish: When I am travelling abroad, it is a real pleasure to taste the local meat. Because in Switzerland, the meat price is incredibly high for a medium quality in many restaurants. I must admit that even in Swiss supermarket meat is not so attractive in terms of price and quality.
Here are the dishes ordered for our table of 4 people:
-Jamon de Jabugo (exceptionnal Spanish ham)
- Terrina de foie
- Gazpacho Andaluz (a tasteful cold soup)
- Tournedo de Ternera (calf)
- Parrillada de carnes (mix of grilled meat)
- Solomillo de Ternera (tender sirloin calf)
- Tarta Manzana Caliente (warm apple pie)
- Pina natural (fresh pineapples)
- Ensalada de frutas (original fruit salad)
- Milhojas de fresas (local speciality with strawberries)
A real delight and I would highly recommend you an excellent local wine: the Balbas originated from la Ribera del Duero. Salude!

The Spanish gastronomical culture is impregnated of Mediterranean flavors. El Raset proposes a perfect place to everybody enjoying the delights from the sea. Fresh products arrive directly from the Dénia port (for more details see my Things to do). Fish, seafood and even meat are proposed in a creative cuisine style.
A good cuisine on a nice terrace and a relaxing mediterranean athmosphere.
Favorite Dish: I only appreciate eating sea food when I'm near Sea/Ocean. It is the garantuee to have fresh products of high quality and a genuine marine taste. It was the case in Dénia... you could even have a look when the fishermen are coming back to the port around 5 PM and enjoy the fishmarket animation there.
Well my favorite dish, I must admit that it was not a light meal: As starter I choose a "Terrinitas de foie gras con gelatina de P.X y crema de turrón". A real delight just let melt the foie gras in your palate to enjoy the full flavour...
Then you could choose between:
- Arroz en caldero de rape y bogavante "del senyoret"
- Merlucita con alcachofas, berberechos y avellanas
- Pescado a la sal
- Toumedó con brioche de arrope, puré de calabaza y foie salteado
Sorry but no more room for any dessert ;-) So I miss the original and inventive mastria of:
- Flan de amaretto con bizcocho de almendra y salsa de yogur
- Raviolis de vainilla y frambuesa con balsámico y sorbete de mango
- Tiramisú con plátano caramelizado y crujiente de sésamo

During my last trip in March 2008, the restaurant was under a new management, its name was El Greco, but still offer a fine and delicate cuisine.
My 2005 new restaurant discovery. Meals in la Casa del Greco are composed of a mix Spanish and Greek ingredients. The result is an excellent creative Mediterranean flavors cuisine.
You could also enjoy a sensitive and proficient service (do not hesitate to ask advice for the best wine according to your dish choice) in intimate and relaxed atmosphere. A must do if you want a great tête-à-tête meal.
Some creative specialities: Greek tiropetes (cheese puffs), tzatziki (yoghurt, cucumber and garlic dip), dolmadakia (stuffed wine leaves), kebap, moussaka (baked meet and aubergine in Bechamel sauce: my delighful & delicious choice;-), kataifi (shredded wheat soaked in honey) and darydopita (walnut cake)...

Surprise! It is just next to the railway station. You can see it from the tourist office, looking a bit crosseyed to your left. When and if you find it, you will be welcome by either Vera, Andrew or Sean. Be a bit aware of Andrew, he is a bit grumpy when he is having the heriod (male form of "period") Take a seat and go along for the ride. Food, drinks, chats. They know it all. This is a pub as it is supposed to be!
Favorite Dish: Whatever! Everything is nice and home made. Just finish your mushrooms if you don`t want Andrews knife placed scaringly close to your fingers!
For indigestion: Try a Fernet Branca (if the half bottle isn`t empty)
For drivers: Do NOT ask Sean to make your G&T
For drink-drinkers: Stay clear of the enourmous pisspots for glasses.
For kids: There is a hidden box of icecream in the fridge.
For trainpassengers and everyone else: I`m sure Andrew will normally make you a sandwich to go. And Vera will put in the odd apple.
For regulars: Well we all know how regulars get treated!
Norwegians: They will normally be let in if they behave (i.e. no such thing as in 1066!)

Ok, not a restaurant, it's a Pizza hut stylie gaff. You can sit in, take out, or order for delivery to your house/hotel. This is probably one of the best pizzas i've had here in denia.
There are loads to choose from, as well as burgers, pasta, salads, onion rings and kebabs!!
Havent tried anything other than the pizza, so cant comment on the rest, but all pretty good price wise.
Pizzas range in price from €6-€20 depending on size, and they do bucket loads of special offers - we got 2 small pizzas with 5 toppings for €10 for both. And they were good.
Well recommended for home feeds!!
Favorite Dish: Anything with chillies!

Ok, not strictly a 'breakfast only' review, as the food here is fantastic, full stop. But, without a doubt, the best Full English Breakfast in Denia. And only €5.
Add to that a great menu of good British feeds, plus regular Specials (recently these included a chorizo and pumpkin stew, and a spicey chilli chicken burger) and great pints of San Miguel to boot.
2 TV's for all your sports needs, all the local rags plus the usual UK papers and a central location add up to an excellent bar for a bit of home here in Denia.
Oh aye, and they've just revived their Pub Quiz - Thursdays 8pm.
A top mark of 5/5.
Favorite Dish: Well, see above - The Full English Breakfast.
Its a real filler for only €5.
Others of note for the blokes - feed yourself whilst watching the game with one of their home made burgers. Boy are they good.

Address: Just beside the train station, not suprisingly.
Ask any pizza eater what makes a great pizza, and they will all tell you its the base, and the sauces used. add to that fresh ingredients, and any pizza tastes great.
So why oh why do restaurants proclaiming to be 'authentic' with 'fresh produce' continue to serve bland, boring, NOT fresh produce?
Insipid is possibly even too polite a word to describe my pizza. a bought in bread base, tasteless tomato base sauce and tinned mushrooms? when i order a pizza called 'vulcano' i expect a bit more than the 'with chillies' to be 1 pickled chilli from a jar. rubbish.
My partner had a 'fresh seafood pasta' straight from a jar.
i suppose the salad to start was edible.....
There are much better places to order pizza and pasta in denia. This was my second time here, as i'd never judge a restaurant on only 1 meal.
Favorite Dish: N/A
