The restaurant in Denia with valencian typical food,

with more than 30 years of history.

Our history

The restaurant Venta de Posa opens its doors in a unique setting, set in an old village house of the Marina Alta that offers a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere to the diner, who can taste traditional and high-quality Valencian food, always made with local and seasonal products.


A restaurant in Denia of family tradition with more than 30 years of experience, which has passed from father to son and which has been able to reinvent itself, adapting to the new times but always maintaining the essence, quality and friendly service that has led it to be one of the major references of the gastronomic offer in Denia and the Marina Alta.

Over the years this traditional restaurant in the Marina Alta has improved its appearance and updated its menu thanks to the integration into the team of Federico Guajardo, a prestigious chef who acted as chef de cuisine to Ferràn Adrià during 2002-2003.

Venta de Posa is a restaurant for diners looking for traditional, simple and flavourful dishes, made with local products, always in an elegant and close way. We are looking forward to seeing you!

Federico Guajardo,
our chef.

Chef Federico Guajardo was born and raised in the Argentinean province of Neuquén. He was so in love with cooking that he moved to Buenos Aires to begin his training in Gastronomic Business Administration, and there he worked in different restaurants.

In 2002 he traveled to Seville to start his own path in international cuisine, having Ferràn Adrià himself as a mentor. Federico was Adrià’s kitchen chef during 2002-2003, which allowed him to learn and make a leap in quality in the kitchen.

In 2003 Guajardo settled in Alicante and found his own style, at the same time that he was obtaining multiple awards and gastronomic recognitions. Federico was no longer the Argentinean, but started to be known as “el alicantino”.

Currently, Federico Guajardo is the head chef of the restaurant Venta de Posa, giving a leap of quality to a gastronomic reference in Denia, mixing tradition and lightness.
