Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Took the long hike up to this great location in the heat of the day one Friday afternoon. Just us and one other couple being served. Service was friendly and the waiter had wonderful English, describing each dish in detail. The price was very reasonable...a tasting menu with accompanying wine. I enjoyed every glass of wine but some of the dishes were just not to my taste. No disrespect to the chef who I am sure did a great job, some of it just didn't work for me which is more about taste than ability. Having said that, I have experienced many tasting menus and I normally enjoy every course. Good value, great location, amazing serviceMore

The meal is a collection of smaller plates together with wine (if preferred). Whilst the dining experience is excellent, the menu doesn´t change very frequently and the price is high. Given the restaurant´s location and the food quality it is worth it. Booking recommended as...it is often full booked.More

We got lunch in downtown Alicante. We climbed up to the restaurant L 'Ereta. It was very cold and the restaurant was empty. We wanted to have a drink, but we were not allowed to sit insite unless we to took a lunch of 70...euro's. We had to finish in our coffee in the cold and rain (which we didn't). I don't understand the inhospitality. These people don't deserve to be called guest house.More

A woman staff member shouted and dismissively waved me out of the entrance to the restaurant telling me to come back at 13:30. I did not even have the chance to explain why I was there. When I walked past yesterday at 13:00 the doors...were wide open and a number of staff were sitting around a table. I stood in the entrance and waved. All I wanted to do was ask when they opened and if I needed to make a reservation for lunch. I was with a good friend and wanted to buy him a farewell meal. The management here are foolish - allowing potential customers to be treated with disrespect. I am often in Alicante with many friends and will never return here. Anyway the food was massively over-priced, so no loss to my pocket!More

The perfect place to eat (and worth the climb!). We contacted the restaurant in advance and asked for a table on the terrace, we were not disappointed and had a fantastic view. We were there for around three hours in total but the visit felt...much shorter. The food was excellent from start to finish with well constructed dishes course after course (we had the Ereta menu). Some of the best dishes we’ve ever had. Wine pairing was excellent and it was fantastic that so many ingredients and wines were locally sourced. The service was professional but with individual personality and we really loved this. I cannot possibly understand some of the negative reviews - maybe they were just unhappy people- we thought this was perfect. If you want to visit a special restaurant in Alicante, go here.More

We booked based on friends recommendation, we mentioned in the booking it was a birthday celebration, and kindly asked for a candle in her dessert; which they forgot to add. The unique selling point of the restaurant is the views and location; they sat us...by the windows; we couldn’t see anything as they were so so dirty. The place was full of dust, and … artificial flowers. How cheap!! The plates were explained in English; the waitress was speaking so fast we couldn’t understand anything. Most of the dishes were not explained. Definitely wouldn’t recommend. Prices are way too high for their offering.More

Plus: * Degustation menu was interesting, diff textures, ideas * Location of restorant is great and a view from there in geenral Minus: * Booked our visit 2 month ahead to celebrate daughter birthday, but got probably the worst table with view to kitchen and...staff only rooms with associated noise * Ordered Cava as aperitive and a bottle of vine, we received Cava after wine after we reminded about it. * The worst surprise was how to get back home; uphill it was just a 10 min walk form the city, but found the bad way that park closes at 11 or 12 (walking up and down in park in the dark, trying to find a way to escape, but the gates are closed) . There is no easy way out, you call all possible numbers to call a taxi, no answer. * I came back to restaurant and tried to explain what happened and ask what to do to waiters in restaurant and then also contacted a manager of restraint, no one understand the issue. Very strange. Do you have a Micheline star, in top for the fine dinning? Really?More

The place it’s really nice, the view it’s amazing but the manager (the lady that receives the people and organize everything) was super rude to us, she was mean and mistreated us and told us that as long as we didn’t have a previous booking...we were going to be attended after everyone else. The food was really good and the wine was also very nice, but it’s a bit to pricy to be mistreated, as a tourist I highly disapprove the way the manager approach clients because it could have been a nice experience but she really ruined it for us.More

Food is not that great nothing amazing and if you dont like fishy taste, definitely dont go there. The old lady, I assume she was the manager, was extremely rude to me and my boyfriend. Either she is racist or she doesnt like english people...as she was really nice to Spanish families that were next to us. Asked her or somebody from her staff to take a picture of us as soon as we got in but she refused and later on in the night they were taking pictures of a group of spanish guys. We arrived half hour before the restaurant opened and we asked to just have a drink whilst waiting and again she refused! To think we spent over 150 pounds on a meal for two and not getting a good customer service is astonoshing.More
