From the menu of the day we tried and enjoyed two out of three starters, main dishes and postres; all nicely arranged, vêry tasty and nicely served. Not much waiting time, above average prices, and worth it. We'll be back with friends.

Over the years I always look forward to come back to La Maja. A lunch menu for only around 18€... in this exclusive settings it's just superb value. A la card for lunch or night and you are in for a treat. Tried both... and it delivered. Keep your high level and we will back very soon.

La Maja was off our list of Altea restaurants since last summer as staff was unable to deliver acceptable service. Owner has taken right action and recruited an excellent new group of waitresses and waiters. They made our dinner a memorable one. Also the kitchen staff proved to be flexible and delivered a great vegetarian entree (not on the menu).... More

La Maja is by far the best restaurant in Altea. The quality of food is amazing, the dishes are a piece of art. The staff is wonderful and attentive. The view from the terrace is astonishing. If you want to enjoy a wonderful meal in a 5* atmosphere, this is the place to go. Just try it and enjoy!

After all the rave reviews I finally went here with some friends and must say I was very disappointed. Went for the menu which was 22 euro's, because I choose lamb for the main course. I had a starter of Roquefort and apple saled. Roquefort flavour was mildly there, but the Roquefort was nowhere to be seen. After another long... More

Average restaurant and way overpriced for the quality of food. Peanut butter jelly does not combine with tuna tataki to name one. Posh place which can't keep up the pretended food and service level. Better to try their much better and moderate priced sister restaurant next door called Le Bistrot.

Stumbled across this fabulous restaurant on the sea front at Altea. We had the set Menu at 17.50 euros per person. It was some of the nicest food I have eaten and the service was excellent, very friendly staff
