AlteArte is a lovely bar in the heart of the old town in Altea, Spain. The owners, Sara and David would do anything just to make sure you have a great time there. The kindness of the owners and staff is unmatched. Great ambience, superb mojitos, peaceful and picturesque location, all at a reasonable price. Definitely worth a visit!!!

We stopped here to get a couple of mojitos and light bites. We didn't want sandwiches as such and they were so accommodating in giving us lovely salad boxes instead such as spiced chicken and seafood. Friendly and welcoming.

Visited here for a much needed mojito following a brisk trip to Benidorm. This bar has friendly staff, a good choice of drinks, great decor (It's also an art gallery). It's very relaxed of which is a great place to unwind. Located in the old town, well worth a visit..

After an amazing dinner in one of Altea's many exquisite restaurants, we decided to go for a last drink before heading back to our hotel. Having passed by AlteArte before, we were excited to go there and try one of many cocktails on their menu. We both ordered a Margarita, but when our drinks came we were surprised to find... More

I'm so sorry to hear that neither the margaritas nor the mojitos were to your liking. Our aim is that everyone leaves AlteArte with a good experience, so, of course, we're disturbed to hear that your experience was the opposite. I'm glad that you told me about the margaritas. I was happy to exchange them for you. However, I wish... More

After a year of reading wonderful reviews about Sara and her wonderful bar we eventually got to visit last week on an overnight stopoff in Altea. The bar itself is housed in a funky 3 level building and it is like a tardis inside, a wonderful surprise on every level with amazing art works displayed on the top level. Everyone... More

It was so wonderful to meet both of you, Niamh and Elliott! I was looking forward to seeing you after dinner, but, of course, I completely understand that you weren't able to make it back. I hope that you can make it back to Altea and AlteArte during your next stay in Spain. I am so happy that AlteArte met... More

This is my third trip back to Altea and the holiday would not be complete without a trip to AlteArte! As always the Mojito's are amazing and the atmosphere friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit, if it's sunny a table outside is a great way to spend an evening people watching, damp rainy evenings can be spent inside exploring... More

Visited AlteArte for the second time this year. Went with different people to last time, but everyone was impressed by how pleasant the staff were and all the activities that can be participated in throughout the year. We sampled mojito's once again from an extensive menu and were pleased to discover they were just as good as the first time.... More

Seriously if you're looking to drink at a place where you can socialize with people all over the world all while drinking a delicious selection of wine, beer and liquor come to AA!!
