Best place we found for our breakfast. We went here most mornings and it was always busy. For about five euros two people could have a good breakfast with Orange and Coffee with Toast/Churros and a little more for Huevos Fritos con jamon...
All round very good value for money. Fast friendly service, by the end of the week el camarero had our order off to a tee and didn't need to ask..
Open from early morning till quite late at night. Large selection of Tapas as well as other meals available at reasonable prices.
Favorite Dish: Churros.
Head into the main Fruit/Veg market just off Paseo de Almeria on Avenida de campoo and you will find a large covered market. Turn left in the square which the market is located as you arrive from Paseo de Almeria and directly in front is a super little restaurant which does a full meal with wine for 7 euro 50 cents.
Usually they had a choice of 3 first courses and main courses and a selection of postres (sweets). All with a 1 litre bottle of wine.
Favorite Dish: Paella for starter.
Ternera was delicious too.
In Almeria, as well as in the rest of Andalucia, it is custom to give small plates of free food with the drinks.
You get TAPAS ONLY with a beer (caña or tubo) wine (tinto, blanco, tinto de verano) as well as with grapejuice (mosto).
There will be a list of TAPAS, either on the table, or chalked up behind the bar, or the waiter will rattle off 100 items in about 20sec when you ask him "Qué hay de tapas?" (whats for tapas?).
Many items are suitable for Vegetarians, as long as they dont mind eggs fried on burger griddles and fishy spoons used to dish up the salad.
Favorite Dish: Vegetarian options:
-Tabernero con Patatas fritas
-huevo a la plancha
-cheringans (de queso, vegetal, aceitetomate)
-patata al horno
.........ask for more, but beware, "vegetarian" in andalucia often includes tuna, ham or prawns.
Spanish Tapas, a great favourite of mine for a meal or snack. Here served at the hotel bar.
Favorite Dish: I had a selection of cheese and ham, served with bread, olives and roasted almonds. A great accompaniment to me beer.
In Almeria town there isn't a great variety of Restaurants as such because there is such a wide offer of 'Tapas Bars' or Tabernas that offer local gastronomy at very reasonable prices. Do not confuse Tapas with 'raciones' as the Tapa is an individual snack which is offered with your drink (mainly beer or wine)for free. The 'Raciones' are dishes to share which in some cases can be pricey specially if sea-food. Always ask the price before you order if there isn't a menu or Board on the wall. For good value fresh fish I would recommend 'El Alcazar-Bar/Restaurant' or the 'Baviera' they are both next to each other on one of the pedestrian streets in the town centre, off the main street 'Paseo de Almeria'
Favorite Dish: The food in general is very tasty (can be quite rich/oily) From diferent stewed meats such as Conejo/Pollo/choto al Ajillo (rabbit/chicken/kid in a garlic gravy) Lomo con tomate (pork loin cut up in dices in a tomato sauce)to the little crispy fried fish: sardines, whitebait (boquerones) or redmullet (salmonetes)
Large selection of Tapas as well as other dishes available at fairly reasonable prices. This establishment was always packed both for lunch and late evening. Super atmosphere great food.
Favorite Dish: Tapas
One of my favourite activities in Spain, sitting at an outdoor cafe drinking coffee and eating pastiles (pastries), chatting and watching the world go by :0)
El barril, Postigo, El Delfin Verde, Taberna de Ramón, Baviera, El Quinto Toro, Casa Puga, and more.
Favorite Dish: PAELLA is one of the most famous Spanish dishes. If you ever find yourself in a Spanish restaurant that serves paella just give it a try. You'll love it !
