Arena was just around the corner from where we stayed so we thought we would give it a go. What a pleasant surprise! The staff were friendly, the food was very good to absolutely excellent and to our surprise the live entertainment from local musicians was a real bonus! We ended up going there three nights, the third was simply... More

We first went to this bar to hear a friend play sax, but have been going back quite often, it's a really nice bar and although we have not tried the food it looks very good and is always busy with diners. There is a website with updates of the entertainment, mostly jazz, it's a friendly bar with good atmosphere... More

We came for dinner during our stay in Denia. Lovely and cosy restaurant. Good choices. Very reasonably priced and portions. The service is excellent and the life music just made it a unique night out. We definitely come again.

Cosy place, friendly service, nice food and good live music on certain days of the week. We were tourists but the clients seem to be almost all expats from the local housing estates. Makes for a nice atmosphere and competitive prices (unlike the town centre). If you eat here and like burgers we strongly recommend the spicy burger...really memorable and... More

We enjoyed the Sunday lunch with jazz when we recently visited. As usual all the staff (and owner!) were very friendly and helpful and efficient, the food was good - lovely fresh buffet - and the jazz was great. A perfect place to spend an afternoon.

This cafe-bistro is open limited hours but that's fine unless you want to visit during the wee hours. The location offers some views of the sea which is a half block away. The food is superb and varied - and very reasonably priced. Sitting on the deck, enjoying a meal and some sangria is one of my favourite to-do things... More

We've been there twice - for daily menu. Fresh vegetables and fruits were served, dressed nicely. Main courses - tasty meat with delicious dressings. Nice, helpful service talking in many languages!

I have a holiday home near to the Arena and have used it quite often over the years when visiting. It has been (and still is) a no frills but pleasant restaurant with no airs or graces. Willem definitely has a winning formula. But over the past couple of years I have disappointed with the food and attended somewhat reluctantly... More
