The first thing that strikes you on walking through the doors of Las Coronas Bar Restaurante in Altea is the effortlessly elegant décor, including displays of artwork by local artists, their warm and welcoming terrace and a large and inviting bar.

Following its opening nine years ago, owner Remco Vermeulen has definitely stamped his mark on the place, creating a popular eaterie with an exciting European menu that is popular with residents and visitors alike. Las Coronas attracts guests from all over the world, predominantly British, Dutch and Belgian, and adapts its dishes to suit all tastes ­ including a menu that changes weekly.

Running restaurants is in Remco’s blood ­ his family had four restaurants in Holland ­ and he thrives on taking care of the front of house side of things, making sure each and every customer feels a warm and friendly welcome as soon as they step through the doors. The hugely popular Lady Jazz treats diners to music with a vintage twist while they enjoy their dishes or dance into the evening in this relaxed restaurant.

“I love to meet and welcome our guests, I have lots of experience in the kitchen, but this is where my heart is.” In a perfect balance, partner and chef Andrew Allsop has “had apassion for cooking from an early age.”

Andrew, who studied French cuisine and ran a bistro in Warwickshire, has now been at Las Coronas for four years: “I have always enjoyed creating things,” he said.

“I like a challenge, so try as many new things as possible. Everything is prepared fresh and from scratch, all sauces, stews and desserts, this means we can adapt to individual requests where necessary,” added Andrew.

Las Coronas offers a three­course meal with five choices for each course, and an al la carte menu is available. Their stunning game menu offers diners wild boar, deer and pheasant sourced from Dutch, Belgian and British butchers.

“It’s all about fresh food and great service. We want our guests to enjoy relaxed, fine dining, the whole experience. We have weekly specials to offer variety, and adapt everything, including the music and lighting to create the right ambience,” said Remco.

And for those who like to fine dine at home, a takeaway service is available. Perfectly located on the promenade opposite the port with wonderful views, there is free parking a stone’s throw from Las Coronas, a bus stop outside and a train station nearby.
