There are many restaurants by the sea on the Costa Blanca, but only some of them are really special. Casa Vital restaurant is a unique place that shines with its own light, where the nights are filled with joy, colour and music and where you can taste an extraordinary menu where the chef masterfully combines the traditional recipes of Norwegian and Spanish cuisine. And they even have their own wines!
In a beautiful elevated corner facing the sea of Altea is the Casa Vital restaurant. Its owner, an unstoppable Norwegian named Åge Folkestand, settled on the Costa Blanca after falling in love with the Mediterranean culture. He decided to transfer his love for art, music and gastronomy by opening a restaurant where he could spread the excellent Norwegian cuisine, but also the Spanish gastronomy. Shortly after, he started making his own wines and nowadays he has many excellent Casa Vital wines from Castilla and from Rioja. His Azul Mediterráneo blue wine has been awarded several prizes and his latest release, Thea, has been inspired by fatherly love towards his daughter.
