JAVI´S , MORAIRA 965743254
Heavy on the rice!
Javi´s was formerly known as Le Soleil and is one of a number of restaurants bordering on Plaza La Sort, just back from the seafront in Moraira.
The restaurant is in triangular form with a tiny terrace down one side. The décor is chic and could possibly be softened by the addition of some fabric in the windows.
The menu del día is priced at €12 for three courses and a glass of wine. For starters we selected mussels, prawn cocktail, squid.
For main course we chose duck confit, merluza, Valencian paella and arroz negra. Overall the dishes were good but it was felt that a bit more meat and less rice would have been a better balance.
Our host selected a Chardonnay from Ucles called Escencia de Fontana and Vina Borgia to accompany the meal. Desserts were cheesecake with nuts and chocolate mousse. Together with coffees and brandies our lunch at Javi´s cost €23.40 p.p.
