Casa Grau is located right in the heart of the historic centre of Xàbia, a cozy restaurant which offers a traditional yet modern cuisine based on the use of seasonal produce offering gourmet quality at an affordable price. It is dining at its best with chef-owner Quique García developing a menu with something for everyone from paella and rices to fresh fish and tasty meat.
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.
Unfortunately the restaurant will be temporarily closed until further notice
