The restaurant of Guadalest El Riu has been opened more than 25 years since it is a family business. We do recommend baiting here and enjoy.

Moreover, enjoy their cuisine and visit the Museum of Historical Vehicles and what’s more, buy some popular craftwork and local products in the kiosk located at the entrance.

The speciality of the restaurant El Riu is chiefly its great variety of grilled meats. Early in the morning, Ricardo always lights the barbecue grill of the restaurant so as to roast the meat perfectly. We do assure that this is an essential step in order to grill the meat just right.
