BISTRO CASA GRAU

CASA GRAU is located right in the heart of the historic centre of Xàbia, a cozy restaurant with a traditional yet modern cuisine based on the use of fresh seasonal produce offering gourmet quality at an affordable price. Since it opened in 2011, it has developed a fantastic reputation for both its food and its pleasant atmosphere.

Self-taught chef Quique García had a dream of opening his own restaurant in his home town. When a unit which had for more than a century been a storeroom of a knitting shop became available, that dream became a reality. He developed an idea based on old 19th-century Parisian bistros and created a restaurant with the aim of offering diners traditional cuisine to enjoy, looked after by a great professional team.

Chef Quique says that he owes everything to his mother who gave to him his passion to cook. He loves traditional cuisine, the basis of all his dishes, something he learnt from his mother and he believes that the simplest dishes are the richest.

Reviews of BISTRO CASA GRAU

Located in the narrow Carrer Major in the heart of the historic centre, Bistro Casa Grau offers something different to the otherwise excellent tapas bars of the old town. Not quite fine dining but certainly close to it. The Galician steaks are excellent, some of the starter tapas dished mouth-watering enough to sit on their own, whilst the desserts finish off the evening perfectly. Not cheap but the quality of food and excellent service confirms its value.
RATING:4.5
