IN A CLASS OF THEIR OWN (from €35+ per head)   Restaurante LA BOHÈME (Jávea, Arenal beach front) : This restaurant is now the best of the French styled/owned restaurants on the Arenal beach front (Los Remos de la Nao & La Perla are two others).   Fine tapas, superb steaks. Menu del dia €16.95. Consistently excellent reports throughout the summer but comments say this is an expensive place (revealed, perhaps, by the excellent refurbishment).  Parador end of Arenal promenade.  96 579.1600 / open daily / Muzak tolerable.  http://www.javeacompany. com/javeacompany/boheme/index.html Restaurante LE GOURMAND : Carretera Jesús Pobre 202. In the last two years Le Gourmand established itself in the affections of the community as one of the very best restaurants in the area.  We have organised two group lunches there - a success with everyone ! Away from the Arenal beach they now flourish and are admired amongst serious eaters.  Booking essential !  For summer there is a large (but no longer “mostly” muzak-free) covered area in the garden. They have occasional jazz evenings during spring/summer and a Jazz Lunch starting on January 17th. Menu-del-día €18.50 (which changes every Thursday).
