You almost eat on the beach at this well respected restaurant.

In 1990 Daniel Tabarra and Tomás Franco came together after years of respectively managing hotels and restaurants in Paris and as chef is some of Spain’s top restaurants to open Los Remos on Javea’s sea front. Eventually Tomás was joined in the kitchen by his son Rubén, after he himself had studied and worked world-wide, including in the famous Yamamoto in Tokio. Their combined skills and years of experience have made it one of the resort’s most popular and highly lauded restaurants. A total reformation in 2006 created a bright, modern interior and a large glazed terrace, whose walls fold back for a cooling sea breeze during the summer.

Food and drink

I was delighted to find that their mussels are cooked in white wine, something I’ve never come across before in Spain, and much prefer to the usual way of simply adding a drop of water. The paella is good, but, being so near the sea – almost in it – and close to one of the area’s main fishing port, it’s not surprising to find that fish takes priority on the menu. The roasted scallops with mushrooms and Serena, a delicious cream cheese from Extremadura, was excellent, but almost everything is at Los Remos al Nao.

Ambience

Summer breezy and airy on the terrace, cosily elegant inside.

Service

With thirty people on the staff, a large percentage of them waiters (amongst whom a fair number of languages are spoken), service is swift, efficient and polite.

Location

At the southern end of Arenal.
