Benidorm didn’t get to be one of Spain’s holiday behemoths for nothing.
This town likes to flaunt its best assets – sandy beaches and fun-packed nights – but there’s another side to it, too.
Altea lives life at a much slower pace – neon-lit nightspots make way for seafront tapas bars, and you’ll find traditional restaurants in lieu of Brit-style pubs and fast food joints.
You’ll find the little town of Albir just next to Benidorm.
Benidorm actually goes all the way back to 1325, so the winding, cobbled old town and Baroque domed church are as authentic as they come.
The food here is simple and appealing, it is not a "destination place" and we never think of it as being so, however when we have visitors or go out with friends we inevitably end up here at some stage and although it is very basic in decor, functional rather than comfortable and with no sea view everyone who visits wants to go back.
Always full of locals, Spanish and expat, either having breakfast, lunch or dinner, enjoying a sandwich or just popping in for a drink.
Everyone is made very welcome at all times of the day.
En una mezcla fruto de la herencia culinaria local y las nuevas tendencias, el restaurante sugiere entrantes como las Patatas fritas con salsa de moras al vinagre de Jerez, los Figatells con cebolla caramelizada y el Lomo de pulpo a la gallega.
Puedes empezar este tiento con una Crema de tomate con crujiente de jamón o la Sopa de cebolla gratinada con queso parmesano.
