Restaurant Reviews for Moraira and Javea - Direct Villa Holidays

Restaurant Reviews from our past guests:

Restaurant -  Tapas Canalla

Food Type -  Traditional Spanish

Reviewer  -  Linda Sinclair

“ Local , off the beaten track , great value ”


“If you want something really Spanish, try here. Located down a side street, away from the usual tourist track, the outside seating is alongside a playground, where the local children play whilst their families watch on, giving it a real authentic feel. The staff are friendly, and the menu is printed on paper, suggesting that it is regularly changed to offer the best seasonal produce. The food is a mixture of tapas and main dishes. It is well presented and tastes amazing. I would particularly recommend the baked camembert with honey and rosemary. After years of coming to Moraira, this is the first time we have discovered this restaurant, but glad we did, and we will definitely be going back.”

Restaurant -  El Lloc del Poble

Food Type -  Mediterranean European  

Reviewer  -  Linda Sinclair


Delicious salad and tapas, wonderful surroundings ”


“One of our favourite restaurants, a “must visit” every time we are in Moraira. We are always greeted with a warm smile and shown to what the waiter refers to as “our table”. The restaurant is in one of the oldest buildings in Moraira, and is full of character. If you are feeling fit, head up the stairs inside, where you will find some wonderful photographs and artefacts from Moraira’s history. The main meals are varied, and the portions are large. There is also a good selection of tapas, which I highly recommend. Sit down in the lower outside seating area if you are in the mood for a spot of people watching. This is also a haven for geckos for some additional entertainment. If you want to sit on the balcony, it is advisable to book”

Restaurant -  Las Gaviotas Cafeteria Heladeria

Food Type -  Tradition Spanish

Reviewer  -  Linda Sinclair

“ Local , simple and very fresh ”


“We have been regular visitors at this little café for many years, calling in for breakfast after the Friday market. The breakfasts are always lovely, but this year we decided to check out the lunch menu. We weren’t disappointed. We had tuna sandwiches, which came stuffed to the rafters with tuna mayo, mixed with chopped peppers, tomato, and onions, and served with a few chips. Whilst we were there it seemed rude not to try the ice cream too, and thoroughly enjoyed a couple of sundaes. The choice available from such a small establishment is amazing. It’s location in the church square, under the trees, mean that it is cooler than some of the restaurants along the front with their giant canvas umbrellas. Keep an eye out for the over-confident sparrows hoping for scraps”

Restaurant -  El Nido
Food Type -  Seafood , Mediterranean
Reviewer  -  Linda Sinclair

“ Not to be missed on your holiday ”


This is one restaurant you really should not miss. We return year after year and have never been disappointed by the food or the service. It is well situated close to the sea, but away from the main hustle and bustle. It’s a little more expensive than some of the other restaurants, but for this you get cotton tablecloths and napkins. The staff are friendly and attentive, and are always pleased to spot a returning customer. The starters of mussels gratinado and fried camembert are to die for. I can also heartily recommend the chicken satay and the pork stroganoff”

Restaurant -  Blue Waterfront

Food Type -   Mediterranean

Reviewer  -  Chelsea Pavey

“  Stunning location,  best steak  ”


This is the third year we have visited Moraira as a group of ten and this restaurant is our favourite! Absolutely stunning location, tables outside overlooking the sea but inside is equally as special. 


Although it is a little bit more expensive than the restaurants you'll find on the sea front, you definitely get what you pay for. The steak was the best I had ever had and enjoyed it twice during my visit! 


The restaurant is owned by a woman from Holland who is very welcoming and supplied my son with paper and crayons, and when he felt a little bit hyper having a dance to the music all the waiters were good enough to join in with him!


Will continue to visit every year!”

Restaurant - Shanghai Chinese Restaurant

Food Type -  Chinese  

Reviewer  - Simon & Michelle Mottershead


“ 9 Euro all inclusive , but amazing Food ”


Situated on the Main road out of Moraira  heading towards Calpe Near to Mas y Mas supermarket


Possibly not the most appealing visually but the food is excellent. Visited last year on a couple of occasions and were not disappointed on our return this year. You can order as many starters and main courses as you wish including rice all for the princely sum of 9 euros and it is all top notch Drinks are extra but not over priced All in all a great meal out at a fantastic price One not to miss”

“ Simply the best Chinese I have ever had in Spain ”


I love my time in Spain but up to now always crave a decent Chinese when i get home as Spanish Chinese's are not the best , but now i have found something special .

Louie and his lovely wife run a great restaurant with wonderful food , the best in town. Its well-priced and would not be out of place in London for the quality of the food , not the biggest menu but freshly cooked and superb  flavours . Really suggest you book .
