Prompted by Tanny, and following her format, here's a similar summary. Doesn't cover everywhere we go, but most of our regulars.
I'm not including places where we just go for a drink, but I must point out that there are three bars in Rafal where - in my opinion - the coffee is better than any I've had elsewhere.
Typical Spanish. Always good food. Nice waiter. Good value for money. Excellent tarta de almendra.
Angelin Bar & Restaurant, Almoradí
Restaurant expensive but good. MDD in the bar is perfectly OK.
Banana Tree, Quesada
Good food, and nice to have grub with Thai flavours.
Bibiana's, San Fulgencio
It’s a very long meal and a very filling one, but well worth doing from time to time. Don’t have any breakfast.
Budapest Restaurant, Doña Pepa
Quite posh dining, really. Good food but the menu never changes.
Carmen del Campillo (Moroccan tea room), Albatera
Moroccan tea and delicious pastries. Worth a visit for something different and to look at the property. Good place to take visitors.
Casa Campisano, Daya Vieja
Good food. International menú.
Casa Harry, San Felipe Neri
Typical Spanish. Good food. Plenty of atmosphere.
Upmarket MDD, bit different to the normal. Must go again asap, but they sometimes close for the height of the summer.
Extensive menú, good food, go hungry. One of our favourites.
El Gusto, Benijofar
International menú. Superb presentation. Evenings only. My very definite favourite for a special occasion.
Gorriones, San Bartolome
Typical Spanish. Good food. Service a bit too quick.
Italian, good food. John’s really friendly. MDD and a la carte.
Messy, far too much food, good price, worth going just for a laugh.
La ‘U’, Almoradí
Different MDD each weekday. Menu del noche not exciting but well worth going for. Regular haunt of ours.
Las Palmeras, Crevillente
Very good, real dining with proper dining cloths etc. it’s a must whenever we’re in that area.
Let’s Eat, Benimar
Good menu, tastes good, but if you analyse the menu it’s all easy to prepare. Place for those who want to eat brit, like Viloriens, but El Gusto beats it hands down.
Los Periquitos, on the road to Fortuna
Good place to visito on the way back from Nueva Condomina or Ikea.
Portico Mar, Guardamar
International menú. Good choice but it never changes. Crowded. Well worth the occasional visit.
Rebate, near San Pedro del Pinatar
It’s a must. See recent thread.
Rincon de Portugal, Benejuzar
Fairly new, really friendly, choice of prices, good food and a bit different. Has become one of our regular haunts.
San Remo, Almoradí
Italian. Nothing wrong with it but not very exciting.
Go for the evening a la carte. Excellent.
The best wok around. What makes is different is the table of stuff they just cook a plateful of at a time. They also have real seaweed salad, pickled ginger, harissa.
