LA CAJITA

LA CAJITA has fast become a not so hidden gem of a bar-restaurant located right in the heart of the historic centre of Xàbia serving a fantastic mouth-watering daily-changing range of gastro tapas in warm and comfortable surroundings and served with flair accompanied by an ever-present Andalusian soundtrack.

As soon as you enter through the solid wooden door, you will find yourself in a special place with solid tosca arches and artifacts from a bygone era decorating the walls. The popularity of La Cajita is difficult to miss and you'd do best to reserve a table if you want to eat to avoid disappointment, especially during the busy weekend evenings. And you can now book online via WhatsApp on 642 534 939.

Miguel offers a charming service in his own inimitable style and always with a smile on his face. You'll find an ample selection of wines, beers and spirits and even a few specialities of the house which he will present with style and flair. But don’t expect fast service for the principle of La Cajita is that time is to be enjoyed slowly over good food and drink. And that’s one of the best attractions about the place. There’s no hurry, there’s always tomorrow.

The daily changing menu offers some creative takes on traditional tapas and introduces new ingredients to the palate. Chef Tangi takes great pride in preparing every dish, his immense concentration producing a mouth-watering plate every time which is served with panache. Some of the most popular dishes include the crunchy ‘patatas bravas’ served with a fanastic spicy sauce, the sliced steak and the succulent pork belly but every dish is a joy to experience.

And that’s the beauty of La Cajita. Great ambience, great music, friendly service and fantastic food. What more could you want in a place?

A fantastic dining experience hidden away in a back street in the old town. The patatas bravas are probably the best I've tasted whilst we had baby squid stuffed with morcilla last time and they were amazing! Booking is essential!

Ah! La Cajita! Our favourite place in the beating heart of Xàbia. Perhaps a victim of its own success, it's almost impossible to walk in and get a table so make sure you reserve at least a week beforehand. Great food, fantastic friendly service, and so incredibly cheap! Try it, you won't be disappointed ...

Been many times to La Cajita and always have a wonderful time and excellent tapas. Atmosphere is great and staff very friendly. Nice selection of tapas available, and all top quality. If you're in the old town, this is a must, but make sure you book!

What a wonderful atmosphere for an evening. Smiling service, good beers and tapas and a 'buzz' that is hard to find. Well worth a visit (or more than one if you can).
