FAMILY RESTAURANTS / GOOD & RELIABLE (Euros 25 - 35 per head) Restaurante AMANECER: c.300m on the right, along the ridge of the headland going to the Cabo San Antonio (off the summit of the JáveaDenia mountain road – the fire got rather close !!). What a surprise to find this restaurant now so wonderfully refurbished with shaded pool-side bar and eating area, comfortable poolside furniture and, within, an elegant air-conditioned dining room. During their recent visit the Southampton Uni Symphony Orch. spent the whole afternoon here and all spoke very highly of how well they’d been looked after. If you, or your relatives, do not have a swimming pool here is a place to have lunch and spend the afternoon (with the grandchildren ?). The dining area is large enough for social functions yet still acceptable for more intimate dining. Menudel-dia €11. Easy parking. A good addition to the list. 96 579.0765 / firstname.lastname@example.org / www. restauranteamanecer.es CAFÉ AUSTRIACO – Café & Bakery (Jávea; Arenal beach front).
