Iberia Gastrobar, Javea

We ate at Iberia Gastrobar more on our recent holiday than anywhere else because the food is so unusual and well done you end up disbelieving yourself about what you have had and wanting to go back to check – to eat there again!

Review of Iberia Gastrobar Top Restaurant in Javea

Location – it’s easy to find in the Old Town on Calle San Buenaventura.  If you are at the Church/Town Hall – instead of going down the steps to the Bar Imperial (great for Tapas at lunchtime by the way – especially the dates wrapped in bacon), go right towards the Museum of Architecture and Ethonography (worth a visit just for the building).  You will find the restaurant with one or two others near it. 

Flaming chorizo at the Gastrobar - they have a sense of humour as well as taste

It has seating for about 20 outside and probably about the same number inside – so reservations recommended.

Atmosphere – it’s not formal so you can be as smart or casual as you like.  Service is friendly and serious – they know their food and love their wine and sherry – and gin.  The food is very good.  One word of advice – ignore the fact that it is number one in trip advisor – and just take it for what it is – a very good restaurant serving good food run by people who care about it.

Food – interesting combinations of flavours.  Don’t think in terms of starters and main courses – nor in mini tapas – here you will order several plates you will probably share. 

They  include scallops with mango, jamon, caramelised walnuts or foie gras with goats cheese and caramelised apple, stuffed baby squid in their own ink, marinated salmon tartar with slow cooked egg, baby sardines in olive oil  – or omelette the other way.  I won’t ruin the surprise of the latter – but order it – you will be talking about it for weeks.  I attach a link to the menu here

I don’t know if this makes any sense – it’s not about the food (i.e. the specific dishes) but it is about the food.  The range and display of cooking here is incredible so it is not about one particular dish but about the whole evening experience.

Cost – if you enjoy this – really you are looking at 30-40 euros a head all in I guess – and like I said – I went here more than I intended to so it is value for money?  Yes. 

Tips – I preferred eating outside in the alley myself but you’d need to book. You can call them on 96 599 67 16.
