If you can find this place, you’re in for a treat.
Alicante is tucked away on the shore of Lake Nipmuc in Mendon, Massachusetts. In the warmer months, there are often boats out on the lake, which only adds to the Mediterranean feel of the place. The decor is lovely, and doesn’t try to be anything else but a good restaurant.
The staff is incredibly helpful, attentive, and great about substitutions / changes. The menu can be somewhat confusing for those not “in the know” about certain cooking terms (EVOO, etc.), but again, the staff is incredibly helpful and willing to explain anything.
The food is, of course, the star of the show, however. Coming here twice, I have not yet been even slightly disappointed. The ingredients are fresh, the dishes have a nice blend of flavors, and the prices are very reasonable, given the quality of the food. I’d recommend this place to just about anybody.*
*The one caveat is they have in the past had mandatory valet parking due to the generally crowded condition of the parking lot. Some find this to be irritating, because even if the valet is free, there is still a tip necessary. Not a problem for this reviewer personally, but has been raised as an issue.
Very tasty. I would have liked to see larger chunks of lobster, but the taste overall was delicious.

I can’t say enough that’s good about this. Everything was cooked perfectly, and it was WONDERFUL. Bravo!
Very tasty. Good consistency, good flavor. Would order again.

Alicante sits directly on beautiful lake Nipmuc in Mendon, MA. The food is terrific and a great value for the money. Steaks, a wide variety of mediterranean fish dishes, pasta and great appetizers were all available. You can dine in the gorgeous dining room, at the bar or on the deck all over looking the picturesque lake. Tonight we watched the sun set and the moon rise and everything clicked. The food was awesome, the sangria and the espresso martini’s were perfect and the service was impeccable. Can’t wait to return!!!
Simply Perfect, I ordered it medium rare and it was exactly what I ordered!

Line up outside most nights, which indicates the quality of the food in this restaurant. Good value for money. Excellent staff. I keep coming back time and time again. Never a bad experience!
