especially worthwhile and attractive restaurant (& terrace) especially for the residents of Montgó. Superb meat is their speciality. Visited recently. Marvellous AVAN (Duero) at €18. Attentive & very friendly service. Food delicious. Best to book. 96 646.1338 / www.pizzeriapepa.com Restaurante at the JAVEA GOLF CLUB : A “Gastro” Golf Club ?! Formerly on of Jávea’s best kept secret ? But why ? Do golfers not eat ? But whatever….. please forget the golf and come here to eat !!! This establishment is under the management of the former chef & manager of El Rodat – José Manuel Pina - and we have now visited it several times. The menu-del-dia at €18 is truly astonishing and if this isn’t, for a single example, the most wonderful Gazpacho of all time then you must write and tell us. The à la carte menu is reasonably priced. The view across to Montgó from the (muzak-free) terrace is sensational.
