Although the restaurant celebrates the best of Mediterranean cuisine, there’s a strong emphasis on classic French fare, which is of the highest calibre courtesy of French owner Benjamin Bouvard. Signature plates from the main menu include the exquisite steak tartar and the scrumptious, succulent roasted rack of lamb. There’s also an array of appetising starters, which include authentic offerings of French specialities such as gratinated mussels and Burgundy snails, and a selection of divine desserts like the super light but intensely rich chocolate soufflé and the deliciously decadent crème brûlée.restaurants javea
Meals are always prepared using the finest and freshest, locally sourced ingredients. And when we say fresh we mean fresh, at Le Gourmand food is never frozen or reheated, ensuring optimum freshness and flavour in all dishes.
While the menu options are almost as fresh as the ingredients themselves. The main à la carte menu is updated every month and the lunchtime Menú del Día is changed every week, allowing them to embrace and reflect seasonal ingredients and specialities whilst guaranteeing returning customers refreshing options and a continuous opportunity to discover new dishes. restaurants in javea
But the exceptional food isn’t Le Gourmand’s only asset. Situated near the Montgó national park, Le Gourmand boasts spectacular scenic views of the imposing mountain range and beautiful Mediterranean Sea. Sitting outside on the terrace on a nice summer’s day, sipping a glass of wine and sampling one of the restaurant’s many authentic French dishes, you’d be forgiven for feeling as though you are tucked away in a pleasant little corner of Provence, as previous guests have fondly recalled. While inside the rustic, minimalistic yet chic, countryside style decor, continues the Provence feel, creating an intimate, cosy setting perfect for a relaxed evening meal with loved ones or friends.
The quaint, familiar atmosphere is only heightened further by the attentive and personalised service guests can count on. Family-owned and with a small yet impressively efficient staff , waiters go out of their way to chat to guests making them feel welcomed and appreciated. Undoubtedly one of the reasons the restaurant sees a high return customer rate amongst locals whilst at the same time being popular amongst travellers seeking a familiar touch when away from home.
