The restaurant opened on May 23, by Don Antonio Pérez Molina “Perete” father of the current administrator Antonio Agustín Péres Planelles. The initial name of the restaurant was “Restaurante Náutico” until the beginning of 1968, when it was renamed to “Dársena”.
At the end of the 70’s Perete’s son joined the comany, carring on a complete remodeling of the establishmente in November 1983. By that time the kitchen reinforces its rice speciality creating a new concept “arrocería” meaning rice restaurant.
At Christmas 1989 “Perete” passed away and his son Antonio was left in charge of the family business among other gastronomic companies.
On November 1997 Dársena left the usual location in the port dock in front of the Canalejas Square, after more than thirty-seven years and on the occasion of the application of the Special Plan of the Port of Alicante that contemplates its demolition to widen the The pedestrian zone. Dársena was relocated to the new leisure area of the capital: the Marina Deportiva, where it now a days has its facilities. In line with its history and representation in the national hospitality industry, offering the client different services such as private dining rooms, a tapas bar, banquet room and a spacious dining room with panoramic views of the marina.
Its culinary offer has the most representative dishes of our “Levantine cuisine” where the rice dishes are the main asset of the restaurant together with a special offer of fish and shellfish brought daily from the nearest fish markets. Its tradition and its permanent research and growth with the new market opportunities in every area: kitchen and customer service, merge and combine into a unique gastronomic experience
