95% is the product, 5% is fantasy; under this premise, El Racó de la Xara opened its doors last year. It is one of the most luxurious upmarket restaurants in Costa Blanca.
Teo Pozo’s philosophy, its owner stated that after many years of wandering Spain and Europe, developing his taste with all the flavors he discovered, he chose to settle down and share what he had learned. El Racó de la Xara makes you feel as if you are at home after being gone for so long.
This is how this culinary venue came to be, where you can taste the greatest raw ingredients along with superb cuisine and wine pairings.
The experience, however, extends beyond the wonderful cuisine and begins as soon as you enter the restaurant as it is an intimate and pleasant space where you will feel at ease. They offer many rooms, some of which simply have a table, so that guests may enjoy their cuisine in the calmest and most pleasant setting possible.
El Racó de La Xara’s décor is meticulous, as are the dishes. With stylish furnishings evocative of the txokos Basques, such as its lovely and strong oak bar, no detail is overlooked. So that the gourmet experience can be appreciated not only with flavor but also with look.
