About
Tosca Restaurant was born on the 13th of June 2006 with a clear goal, to be an important part of our client's thoughts.Located in front of Javea's Parador Hotel, we have a terrace that faces the Arenal sandy beach from which you can enjoy unique views of the bay of this quaint Costa Blanca village.With a cozy decoration, in which the tosca -the typical lime stone of the area- and wood are combined with more modern materials and design, the feeling you get is of calmness and wellbeing.Our especially selected menu includes fresh local fish oven cooked with salt, Chateaubriand or t-bone steak cooked on stone, and of course, our home made Duck Mit-cuit.

Irrespective of the time of year whether you are a resident, or visitor to Javea whenever Covid19 restrictions allow you cannot do better than eat at Tosca’s for superb food with minutest attention to detail, presentation and sheer value for money. Yes many will state...you can pay far less for a standard 3 course “Menu del Dia” to be found on the adjacent Arenal BUT none will be anywhere near Tosca’s 5 course lunchtime “Michelin” standard such that at 24.90€ to do so is to compare apples to pears. Just relax and give your taste buds the opportunity of enjoying true classic mediterranean food under the watchful eye of the joint proprietors - Ferran our maitre d’ who as a qualified sommelier will advise the most reasonable price wine to accompany your meal beautifully prepared by Chef Julian and their team. Service commenced with a wonderfully tasty “amuse bouche” of beetroot flavoured gazpacho with a centre of avocado mousse sprinkled with small plum cubes and edible flowers shortly followed by venison carpaccio with wild mushroom in escabeche pears with wine and manchego cheese mousse. Thereafter a wonderful compilation of an Atlantic cod and kale risotto allowed the full flavours of the fish to further reward ones taste buds. Following a refreshing sorbet with just a hint of tomato and olive oil we watched captivated as our Sea Bream was expertly released from its hard crusted salt coating and bonelessly filleted. Whereas Sea Bream can be a very moist fish the salt has the effect of reducing this to reveal the true taste of the white flesh served alongside an array of beautifully presented vegetables. Throughout the meal we enjoyed a bottle of 2019 Enate 234 Chardonnay (21.90€) with our glasses being topped up by our watchful but unobtrusive young but expertly trained waiter. Our postre’s was a wonderful version of “fruits of the forest” with dices of strawberry, whole raspberries, red currents, Blackberrys & Blueberry’s all set in a whipped cheese mousse alongside broken pieces of meringue with a raspberry flavour. We chose to finish off our meal with coffee con leche and brandy - a very pleasant way to spend some 2hours 30 minutes on an otherwise externally very dank day with many thanks to Ferran & Julian long may they continue to prosper - beyond doubt the best of the best in Javea.More

Wonderful food served by friendly waiters in a lovely setting. Little extras in between courses making it a very special evening. Well worth...a visit but would recommend booking before you go.

Eating out in times of Covid uncertainty- not a worry here. Hands sanitised and temperature checked on arrival as you walk over a sanitised floor pad. However its about the food, service and value. Top marks on all 3. Bread and foiegras with tomato, mustard...and apple. To share - Cerviche of market fish. Tomato and Watermelon sorbet Mains - Both chose Turbot in orange coconut saffron and coriander cream. Deserts- one cheese plate and one parfait. Drinks - glass of cava, glass of beer, bottle of Sauvignon Blanc plus 2 glasses of wine. Every mouthful a delight. Wonderfully executed and presented. Service attentive and knowledgeable. A must if you are in Javea...... Oh and as for value.... change out of €150 and worth every cent.More

Been to this great restaurant several times last year and each visit has been brilliant. Great food, superb wine and a friendly team to welcome you. The daily menu is incredible value, and the a la carte some of the best food you will taste...in the region. There’s also an open kitchen and a chef not afraid to say hello and chat. I would highly recommend this restaurant.More
