One of the jewels of Costa Blanca, the beautiful town of Altea, is also home to Oustau restaurant, enchanting dining venue and among our top choices for a memorable gastronomic experience this summer.
The old town of Altea looks typically Spanish with its pretty, narrow cobbled streets with white houses leading up to the beautiful central square and the whitewashed houses provide a clean canvas for the flowerbeds bursting with bright Mediterranean colours. Just a few steps away from the central square with its impressive church, Oustau restaurant welcome their guests in a typical house with generous windows on the first floor to enjoy the panoramic views around and with a cozy interior garden, filled with plants and decorated with lamps in every corner. The blue domed church, the very symbol of the town, can be admired from the garden of Oustau restaurant.
In this enchanting setting taken straight out of the movies, Oustau restaurant provides a Mediterranean inspired menu with dishes named after famous movies and actors, in accord with the main ingredients, so dining here will be delightful, funny and memorable. The choice of dishes is wide, the ingredients are all local and seasonal, and the combinations are original and surprising.
Among the most recent creations of this summer, we recommend the Angry Birds – Duck Magret with cranberry sauce with coconut milk, chicory and pears. Also, as fish dish, the Red Tuna Fillets By Mr. Fassbender – with black sesame seeds and Teriyaki sauce on a bed of zucchini pure, a delicate combination enhancing the great flavour of the tuna, a symbol of Mediterranean cuisine.
And there’s no better way to round off an exquisite meal than with a flamboyant Crêpe Suzette.
Also keep in mind that Oustau restaurant has vegetarian, vegan and celiac options. Whenever in Althea, enjoy this unique gastronomic experience and let us know in your comments. For more information on Oustau restaurant, visit their website at http://oustau.es
