If you are coming on holiday to Moraira no doubt you are wanting to find out the best places to eat out so let us be your guide and get the most out of your holiday in Moraira.

Moraira is one of Spain’s largest tourist resorts and being on the Costa Blanca coast you will almost always have a fish or shellfish dish on the menu.

Because Moraira has such a diverse population with many expats living here there are restaurants catering to many different tastes and nationalities. Cooking standards are usually high and usually include fresh local produce and ingredients.

Many restaurants in Moraira will be Spanish restaurants many of which will also serve international food or cuisine. The Spanish restaurants will serve tapas, local recipes and dishes that are unique to the Valencian region such as Paella. Also expect many meals to be based around seafood dishes due to the Costa Blanca bordering the Mediterranean Sea.

Although most Moraira restaurants are Spanish owned and run, due to the cosmopolitan population and diverse nationalities of tourists visiting Moraira you will also find many Chinese restaurants, Italian restaurants, Indian restaurants and restaurants serving English or British food as well as some Thai restaurants, French restaurants, German restaurants and Japanese (Sushi) restaurants.

Look out for the Menu del Dia which most Moraira restaurants offer, especially at lunchtimes. This is a great value menu which typically includes a starter, main course, dessert and often includes wine, soft drink or coffee.

We also invite you to submit your own comments and Moraira restaurant reviews if you have dined out or eaten out in any of the restaurants.

Consider the following Moraira restaurant review factors: the quality and taste of the food and menu, fresh ingredients or frozen, cooking of the chef and kitchen staff, size of portions, the price, the service from your waiter or waitress, the value for money, the decor situation and ambiance, any signature dishes, wines, busy or quiet, any need to make reservations, family-friendly or not.

Also worth visiting are the restaurants in Benissa and Javea to the north.

A-Z Listing Of Moraira Restaurants

Andrago Restaurant – The Andrago Restaurant in Moraira serves Balkan and in particular Slovakian food which is a pleasant change from the many restaurants with the typical Mediterranean/International menus.

“We had often seen the sign to the Andrago restaurant on the north side of the road Moraira – Calpe road, behind Deutsche Bank. We visited it in mid April 2008, and found it was very pleasant. It is a Balkan – Slovakian restaurant with a different menu from the usual selection of Mediterranean / International food. Their menu included kebabs, schnitzel, fish, pasta, lamb, beef and many foods that we had not experienced before. The house wine was good, and the service was attentive. The price was very reasonable. We would recommend it, if you are looking for a change.” Mike S. May 2008

Antoniet Restaurant – Where: Avda de la Pau 18, Moraira, 03724. Telephone: 965 744 016.

The Antoniet Restaurant in Moraira is an excellent restaurant for fish dishes.

“In my opinion the best fish restaurant in Moraira.” E.C. April ’08

Bajul Indonesian Restaurant

The Bajul Indonesian Restaurant serves Indonesian food. This is said to be the real thing – try the Rijsttafel which comprises 16 different dishes.

– “I do not know how we missed the fact that a super Indonesian Restaurant called Bajul has opened in Moraira, Avenida De La Paz 27. Last night we visited Bajul and had a delicious meal. Many years ago my wife and I were in Indonesia and ever since we have always enjoyed real Indonesian food.

Quite often Chinese restaurants on the Costa Blanca offer what they pretend is Indonesian food in their menus – but it is never as tasty nor as well presented as the real thing.

At the Bajul restaurant we chose their Rijsttafel which comprised 16 different dishes. It was really excellent and good value. The restaurant has air conditioned smoking and non smoking areas, as well as dining tables outside.

Full details of the restaurant and their menu can be found at” Mike S. August ’08

Bar Mediterraneo Restaurant

Very Spanish bar/restaurant in Teulada. Plain and reasonable Spanish cooking and very good value for money if you can stand a smoky atmosphere.

– “Very Spanish bar/restaurant in Teulada. Plain and reasonable Spanish cooking and very good value for money if you can stand a smoky atmosphere. The four course nightly menu del día includes 1/2 bottle of wine per person, bread and alioli, coffee and liquor with your bill and will set you back all of 10 euros! ” Mike L. Feb ’08

Restaurante Ca Pepe I

The Restaurante Ca Pepe I is an upmarket restaurant seen by many as the best restaurant between Denia and Elche. Their young chef Ivan Grau Blasco was trained by Gordon Ramsay and has skills that are only comparable to the best chefs of the world.

“By many seen as the best restaurant between Denia and Elche they really filled the gap that was left by two Michelin star Girasol a few years ago. By far the best restaurant of Moraira and pricewise half of Le Dauphin. They are in Calle Haya 51 on your way to the Swiss Hotel (best hotel of Moraira). Tel. 966 490 144. I am not sure if they have their own website.” John March 2009

Colbys Restaurant– Where: Go through Moraira taking the coast road towards Calpe. In the complex of shops where Ocean Estates and Moraira Digital are.

“Primarily known as an English sports bar but the food they do is very edible. Best English breakfast (about €6) in the area I think.” M. L. April ’08

David’s Fish and Chip Shop – “Had a take out from here just the once. Nice food but large portions (even though we’d only ordered the small) – fish pieces were large could have easily shared. 8/10” Sonia and Mark June 2010

“Take-away or eat in. Good quality standard British chip shop food. Eating out area for summer. NON-SMOKING.” Mike L. Feb ’08

Del Mar Restaurant – “Fabulous food. The Del Mar is right opposite the marina in Moraira. There is no inside so obviously check the weather first!” P.M April ’08

El Cafeti de la Mar Bistro, C/Castillo 30, 03724 Moraira – located opposite the castle right on the sea front. Dutch restaurant but speak English. Very friendly and lovely food with an unusual selection of accompaniments with the meals. Limited childrens menu but that was the same at most places. Prices about average compared to elsewhere but well worth a visit. My husband & I both had the fillet steak (about 19 euro) with port sauce on our last night – gorgeous!! The salmon fillet was also very good. Well worth a visit & nicely located. 9/10″ Sonia and Mark June 2010

El Caserio Restaurant – “Four of us had an excellent meal at El Caserio outside under the stars recently. All the tables outside were taken, and I believe that some people who had not booked were turned away. The Menu at €18.75 is good value with a wide choice and large servings. There were several children eating at different tables, and all of them were well behaved. Service is slow when the restaurant is busy, but the house wines and the food are good.” Mike S. August ’08

“We go to the El Caserio restaurant when we are over which is quite often, highly recommended, lovely food and wine, host Tony and his lovely wife 10/10 p.s. only downside if busy can take a while to get served,but Ha! the wine makes up for it and a place to stay all evening.” Barry M. April ’08

“Owned by British wife and Spanish husband duo. Open only at night. A la carte or four course menu del día for around 18 euros. Definitely not run-of-the-mill food. Varied and tasty food in a lovely atmosphere. Has own car park. Outside eating in summer. Smoking permitted. Score 9 out of 10.” Mike L. Feb ’08

El Pou – Opposite marina up steps – limited tables outside with view over marina. Food was nice but charged nearly 7 euro just for the bread & garlic mayo!! Thought that was a bit steep. Had the mixed fish meal which was huge!! 7/10″ Sonia and Mark June 2010

Golden Bay Chinese Restaurant – “On the sea front of Moraira near the Castle – used this once as a take out. Quite a varied menu and prices OK. Nice meal. 7/10” Sonia and Mark June 2010

Happy Garden Restaurant – Where: On the coast road towards Calpe. Directly opposite the new complex where the Algas beach bar and Cafe del Mar are.

“Chinese restaurants are often a bit samey but this one is worth seeking out – always busy which is a good sign of course. Great value for money” M. L. April ’08

himalaya-restaurantHimalaya Restaurant (pictured left) – “Nepalese Restaurant. Just along the Portet Road towards the marina. The best Indian restaurant in town. Great food, lovely people, good price. Must book tel 965744980.” Jill May ’08

Indian Palace Restaurant – “As this was the only Indian offering take out we decided to give it a try. Food was so good my husband insisted we tried it a second time. 9/10” Sonia and Mark June 2010

“Sister restaurant to the Jávea establishment of the same name. Well above average Indian food. Some dishes better than others. NON-SMOKING. Score 8 out of 10.” Mike L. Feb ’08

“Went to the “Indian Palace” in Moraira, yesterday (Sunday 2nd June) had chicken madras and chicken korma, thought the food was very nice spices`and flavours` were very good indeed. Would say this is one of the better Indian restaurants` 9/10. BarryM.

Jacaranda Restaurant – “Went for sunday lunch where they had beef/pork & chicken on the menu. We had chicken,well presented plenty on plate,and tasted like home made sunday lunch should be, will return soon. BarryM. 9/10 Would advise to book. 8th September 08.

The Kathmandu Restaurant – “Went to the “Katmandu” last week, 16th April 08 with 4 of our friend`s who know their currie`s, and a lovely meal and was pretty busy for in the week so would think when the summer come`s will be very busy. 9/10.” Barry M. April ’08

“Nepalese food and Indian food. Opened February 2008. Very good food. Covered outside eating area (for summer months). NON-SMOKING. Score 9 out of 10.” Mike L. Feb ’08 (see Mike’s follow-up report below)

“The food at the Kathmandu restaurant in Moraira has deteriorated. I don’t know if they have a new chef or they aren’t as bothered now, but their food is definitely inferior. I can no longer recommend it. ” Mike L. April ’08

La Boheme Cafe – Opposite marina – we mistakenly thought we were eating at Cap D’Or as they are next to each other. My husband & I ordered paella which came as individual portions and consisted mostly of rice, 1 mussel, 1 tiny prawn, and 2 bits of bone with nearly no meat. Disappointing 6/10.” Sonia and Mark June 2010

La Bona Taula ViewsLa Bona Taula

Business Address:
Restaurante La Bona Taula Ctra. Moraira-Calpe, 119 – 03724 Moraira (Alicante) España

Telephone: +34 96 649 02 06


The good level of the gastronomy of the zone, counts on restaurants of the great international prestige like our restaurant, which mixes its knowledge to do with ingredients like a cosy atmosphere, as much by the decoration as by the personnel, who knows to take care of the client beyond which the professionalism demands.

Food at the La Bona Taula

Food at the La Bona Taula

As it supplies complementary in summer is possible to be enjoyed the terrace, to be able to eat and to have supper outdoors, to the time that delights of the wonderful Vista of the garden, the Cabo de Moraira or the sea breaking against rocks.

La Luna Restaurant – “We went to “La Luna” in Moraira last Sunday 20th April 08 at lunchtime and had a good meal with friendly service included. 8 out of 10.” Barry M. April ’08

“La Luna restaurant in Moraira near to the Bon Bon shop. We have had several excellent meals here. I think it improves with age. The set menu lunches are excellent value & quality. They always have a fish , meat and vegetarian main course (all fresh). You can’t go wrong for 12 euros for 3 courses including a glass of house wine. In the evenings, they step up a grade further. Similar in menu style to Options (also very good) I would say on food quality, it has the edge. (Options edges it for location).” Jill May ’08

La Sort Restaurant – “If you are looking for somewhere special to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, this is the place. Family owned and attention to detail is king. They have leg of kid on the menu, which falls off the bone and melts in the mouth. Also, there is a chocolate pudding on the dessert menu which has a cakey crust and a runny, thick, rich chocolate centre to die for. Wines are superb, atmosphere is intimate and everything in general is absolutely scrummy. Apart from the price, which is about 80 euros per head for three courses and a bottle of something delightful. Still, you can’t have everything. Look for it on the seafront in Moraira, there is also a La Sort Hotel attached if you fancy staying overnight.” Jan G. March ’08

le-dauphinLe Dauphin Restaurant (pictured left) – “Located virtually on the Portet beach itself, is probably one of the best located restaurants on the Costa Blanca. It’s a special venue for special occasions. Expensive of course, but in summer, sitting on the stunning terrace with views across the Portet bay, it takes some beating. (about 80 euros per head with wine) I think it has a Michelin award. I have recommended it to my rental guests for several years and people often say that their evening there, really made their holiday. tel 96 649 0432 Last visit, for my birthday in April 08.” Jill ’08

Lemon Tree Restaurant – “Visited the renamed,”Lemon Tree” restaurant,was rather a warm evening could have done with some upright fans` we had prawns on garlic bread, followed by fish & chips`and scampi & chips` not the same quality food as before, but cheap and cheerful. A shame really because this is a really nice venue. 6/10 Barry M. August 2008

Monroes Carvery – 5.90 euros for two courses – every lunchtime Monday to Saturday.

“Cheap certainly but we went to Monroes Carvery in Moraira early evening one Saturday and found it just ok, vegetables bit soggy, perhaps because it is a carvery they had been there for awhile.” Mark E. April ’08

The Olive Tree Restaurant

“British owned dressy-up restaurant. More expensive but excellent food including tasty vegetarian meals. Well above average. Very nice atmosphere – suitable for celebrating anniversaries and the like or just to have that special romantic meal out. NON-SMOKING. Score 10 out 10.” Mike L. Feb ’08

“Went to the Olive Tree restaurant in Moraira before we went back to dreary u.k.on the 15th Nov 08. Had a great meal and pleasant evening, as always.” 10/10 Barry. M.

Options Restaurant

Options restaurant in Moraira gets the thumbs up for good food, service and decor.

“Had a nice meal in Options 17th April 08. Found the new manageress really funny and helpful, ask for certain cheeses i.e. blue stilton and cheddar and asked for digestive biscuits which were not on the menu, but couldn’t have been more helpful. 9/10 will be back as soon as we return at the end of May.” Barry M. April ’08

Hi just returned from U.K. went to “Options` restaurant in Moraira, Friday 30th May. Had yet another good meal and service. Nice decor and clean restaurant. 9 out of 10. Barry M. June ’08

Pasta House Restaurant– Telephone: 966 491 898.

The Pasta House in Moraira is family run and produces Italian food freshly cooked. All the pasta and pizzas are made in house and of a fantastic standard. Possibly the best Italian restaurant in Moraira.

“Near the office of Molino Villas and the Mr Car Rental offices, along that row of shops the other side of the main car park in Moraira. Pasta House is family run and produces Italian food freshly cooked. All the pasta and pizzas are made in house and of a fantastic standard. The decor is modern and very comfortable with generously sized tables for those with summer guests. Many of the pasta dishes may be ordered as starters and the dessert menu is good. One of very few restaurants producing fresh pasta.” Jan G. March ’08

“The best Italian restaurant (and I should know as I’m Italian!) in Moraira. The pasta is homemade. Fantastic.” E.C. April ’08

The Radah Restaurant – “Situated one block away from the Indian Palace. Indian food of quite reasonable quality. 12.50 euros all-you-can-eat buffet on Wednesdays and Sundays. Fresh fruit and/or mango mousse dessert is a nice touch. NON-SMOKING. Score 7 out of 10.” Mike L. Feb ’08

Restaurant Rondo

The restaurant Rondo has a creative international menu, carefully selected wines and a warm welcome.

– ‘At the Rondo enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and good food -a creative international menu, carefully selected wines and a warm welcome await you. We open evenings from 7pm for dining in the restaurant or outside on our delightful terrace. Tel. 96 649 7107’

Satari’s Restaurant

Satari’s is very good, not run-of-the-mill food and attentive service.

“Returned to Sataris last week 20th August,they have put some new things` on the menu.My wife had the new Lemon chicken main meal which she said was terrible like boilled chicken with white lemon sauce poured over it her words` must admit was asked if she wanted something else. I had the poached salmon in mustard sauce new dish,which was very good. So good and bad things` on the new menu P.S. wonder if the chef ever tastes` is dishes`? 8/10 Barry M. 20th August 08.

“Very good not run-of-the-mill food and attentive service albeit after several visits I find the menu somewhat limited. Smoking allowed in bar area although this doesn’t badly affect the dining tables. Score 8 out of 10.” Mike L. Feb ’08

“Highly recommended.” P.M April ’08

“Have been to Sataris on a number of occasions, but as Mike.L. said, menu could do with upgrading, nice enough venue though.” Barry M. 14th May ’08.

Terra Vina Wine Bar
The Terra Vina Wine Bar serves cold tapas and has an excellent selection of wines. It’s behind the Restaurant Eleven.

Tico Tico – Short drive heading towards Calpe this restaurant was recommended by a villa owner. Thought it was Ok, food quite nice. Lots of flies in the restaurant which was a little off putting. It was popular with many diners there quite early about 7.30 – 8pm. Steaks were nice but lukewarm, daughter had the swordfish which she enjoyed. 7/10″ Sonia and Mark June 2010

Timon Restaurant

The Timon is on the Calpe road heading out of Moraira, an incredible location and great seafood, especially the prawns.

“On the Calpe road heading out of Moraira, you need to look for the Timon sign on the left a couple of kilometres before reaching Calpe. The best thing about Timon is the incredible location. Go on a fine, sunny day as the restaurant is built onto the rock overlooking a small sailing school, so there is plenty to look at while you are waiting for your food to arrive. Great seafood, especially the prawns. The owner learned his trade working in Italian restaurants in Germany and so the pasta dishes are good. There is also an acceptable curry on the menu.” Jan G. March ’08

Wok Restaurant (also known as Extra Wok)

“The Extra Wok in Moraira is a buffet style Chinese restaurant where you can eat all you want for €9.95 and children under the age of 7 for €7.95…”

  1. Lynda knights says

    I would like to make a comment in defence of Monroes Carvery. My husband and I have been using Monroes Carvery on and off for the last fourteen years and yes sometimes the service is slow but they are sometimes extremely busy, (due ti their popularity,) but no one has ever been rude to us, maybe because we have never been rude to them !!. Monday is pie night and we defy anyone to eat a better ( homemade) steak and kidney pie. OK it’s not cordon bleu cuisine but your not paying for that, if you want that go to La Dauphin. Monroes serve good honest English food at a very reasonable price and an ideal restaurant to take your children..

  2. annalise wilden says

    Absolutely appalling service. Was told we couldnt sit where we wanted to sit.. – out the way of the other diners and was made to sit in the corner table sqaushed up together. Although the restaurant was EMPTY.
    Ten minutes later a gentlemen arrived and he was seated exactly where i was just told i couldnt sit with my family.
    Starter was inedible. Half my loaded potato skins were rock hard. When i told the ´lady´ she was VERY rude to me. Calling me names and stating i was ´rude´
    After the meal had finished. I paid the 50 euro bill and asked to speak to whoever was in charge. I was told the ´lady´was in charge tonight. This made the ´lady´smirk at me, knowing full well there was nothing else i could do or say there and then. She gave me afew more rude comments as i left.
    DO NOT USE. Food was mediocre. Service was awful

  3. Joost Vervuren says

    I would like to add two restaurants, Eleven and Terra Vina.

    The first one, Eleven, has a great terrace including sea view where you can have a drink, lunch, cocktail, food, all day long and the second restaurant, Terra Vina, is actually a tapas and wine bar which offers more than just the regular tapas to experience some fine and special tastes. We’ve visited them each summer for years now.
