Restaurants

by Alex_71

Hello
I'll be in Alicante from 6 to 10 of september. One day i'll have to move to Murcia but at the evening i'll be back in Alicante. I'd like to know the name of some restaurants where to eat. I'm searching for typical restaurants but not too much touristic. I like to eat real local food and not the "pre-cooked". Do you have some suggestion to give?
Thank in advice
Alex

If you don't want touristic restaurants, avoid Calle Mayor.

Travel Tips for Alicante

Nice place, not many foreigners

by horrgakx

The food quality and service in the various restaurants is generally excellent. English speakers were relatively low in this town though most bar staff spoke English. It is worth noting that I found very few foreigners here, the vast majority were Spanish and it was a busy working town, not particularly a laid-back holiday destination. The place is very beautiful. The main 'strip' can be compared to Ramblas in Barcelona in that it is a wide tree-lined avenue. The beach front is very busy, traffic is heavy but pedestrian crossings are frequent and they MUST be adhered to. Sand and water quality is good and the sunbed / shade had to be bought though it wasn't expensive. Make sure to visit the best Chinese restaurant in the world here, on the main strip just on your left as you walk up from the front!

Alicante that was

by canttaketheskyfromme

Alicante still has an Old City. ANd it isn't hard to find, if you know where to go. You will find some beautiful architecture, both in the old "Spanish colonial" style, and also some fantastic municipal buildings, as well as shops with a lot of the original fittings, paticular farmacias and some todo 100 shops that simply havn't had hte previous fixtures removed. The streets in this part of town are generally quiet as quite a few buidlgs are empty, pending a massive restoration effort that has been a long time in not quite coming. This isn't entirely a bad thing as it gives a much more genuine feel of what the city would have once been like, rather than being picture poistcard perfect with fresh paint and overpriced boutiques a lot of it really is as it was, just quieter now. A lot of the city's Moroccan and Algerian community live here as rooms can be had cheaply, most Spanish people prefer new apartments with all the mod cons. There are no specific sights, just wlak around and soak it all in. Bring a camera, but make sure you take time to look and just *be there*, as well as snap away.

THe old town is best explored by walking up away from the sea from Purta Del Mar FGV station then heading Diagonially across towards La Rambla and the bus station. Youll find lots of cafes and plazas to stop at if you fancy a coffee or cold drink. Prices here are reasonable too. Enjoy it before they "restore" it.

Used to be... Tradicional Mediterranean Dishes

by gOdOtPm about La Casona Alicantina

La Casona Alicantina is located in la Calle Mayor, probably the best street to eat local dishes. Although it was conceived as a restaurant, on the area of the bar they serve tapas, wine and beer. If you plan to stay longer, you'll have to choose among fifty dishes, all of them local and only some of them vegetarian dishes. You can chose among the bar, two saloons and the terrace. The prices of the menus are kind of abusive (from 30 to 50 euros). The quality of the ingredients partly justify such a high price (three or four starters, a heavy dish, dessert and drinks) but only if you are a tourist. Locals would never visit La Casona unless someone else's paying (like local politicians pigging out everything they have). The treatment is correct, but far from corresponding to their prices.

The lift to the Castle

by barbskie

This lift is located at the opposite side of Postiguet promenade. From there walk through the bridge, then turn left down to the busy street, then continue walking to the city center directions. You will see the huge entrance at the right side.

Benidorm's impressive commercial centre is located around the Plaza Triangular, the calle Martínez Alejos, Gambo, Dr. Perez Llorca and the wide avenida del Mediterráneo.
