inside the port, and the travellers path day and night.
thou' facing the sea and because of that a quite and warm restaurant
location wise and views of the poniente beach.
and at diner time the skyscrappers full of light skyline beautifull views.
Favorite Dish: seafood is allways seafood. i came from a region where the best seafood is served and here it was not as good as can eat at home in regular bases. but in the end it turned out okey. a bit expensive thou'.
summer open restaurant, right at the beginning of levante beach.
of course, being at the paella region i sure had to try .
and well worth it was.
just side by side with the path and a couple of yards from the beach
Favorite Dish: seafood paella was a must. and "fritada"
where several kind of friedfish came in a large portion, were the dishes i 've had
We got a few Telepizzas restaurants in Benidorm,well right now is one of most important restaurant chains in Spain,there are lots of them in my country and also a few of them in other countries aswell.
Favorite Dish: This one is located very close to Poniente Beach,and you'll have a huge variety of Pizzas,in the restaurant there are a few tables and chairs but this sort of restaurants takes normally the Pizzas at home.
My Favorite is:
Bacon,Ham,Mushroom,Peppers and Onions.
But you can ask for the ingredients that you like the most and then make your own pizza!.
I don't come very often to this sort of restaurants,but I've been here a few times.
I don't need to tell you what you can have here,is fast food!! but I can tell you that I like the Whopper and also the salads!!.
This Burger King is located at Avenida Jaime I and very close to Poniente Beach.
Bar serving tapas and raciones (larger portions of tapas) located in the centre of Benidorm. This is one of the largest tapas bars (more than 44 metres of tapas). They also have an open-air café and, on the ground floor, a restaurant serving specialities such as 'lechazo de Aranda' (young lamb), 'Cochinillo de Segovia' (suckling pig) and 'Buey a la Piedra' (beef). In addition we have an extensive wine list with a range of 175 wines selected from the entire country.
Favorite Dish: It is impossible to choose so much choice never seen anything like it.
English restaurant and maybe for some of you unbelievable with very nice food.Only the spicy food can sometimes be a little to spicy so watch out.For 8 euro can choose a 3 course meal that changes weekly.The Sunday lunch is very good and cost 7euro50.
Favorite Dish: I like the Chicken Madras curry and as dessert the trifle.It is a typical English dessert.Just give it a try.
In Les Dunes you get a very good service.The food is excellent.You can choose from a lot of disches.The prices are very reasonable.
Favorite Dish: The feidura is my favourite and after that a cafe con leche with a 43.
This restaurant has specialites in spanish cuisine.Don't miss all meat with garlic sauce and all grilled meat.
Chicken in Garlic Sauce
Rabbit in Garlic Sauce
Entercote with pepper Sauce
Cordon Blue Cutlet.
And also some nice dishes made with fresh fish,as Emperador or Merluza a la Vasca.
The seafront is full of cafes and restaurants and most do the usual food, you will probably find better restaurants further in the town. We had lunch along here a couple of times, I just had a Bocadilla which is the typical Spanish baguette usually filled with Serano ham or cheese.
The best of all the chineses in benidorm (and theres alot!) with much more variety on their menu, great service, the friendliest staff ever and excellent food. They still do cheap meal deals but i'd say its worth choosing from the menu.
Favorite Dish: Impossible to choose!
The singing frog is a tiny cafe with an enormous menu! The usual sort of thing in a british run benidorm cafe but more choice than normal. From breakfasts to baguettes, sandwiches, roast dinners, salads, burgers, main meals, half portions for kids.
Excellent homecooked food at reasonable prices and friendly staff.
Favorite Dish: They make their own chips, big, fat, chunky, lovely chips!!
Ernestos, Calle Mayor, Benidorm.
Unbelievable quality and value!!
Ernestos is owned by Pietro and Naomi – they are not quite a restaurant and yet neither are they just a bar. They fall between the two something they explain to me that the locals find difficult to grasp. They are a lovely couple who have travelled and honed their trade around the globe
All the food was prepared as we waited, not the usual throw it in the microwave fare.
My friend and I were strolling around the old town and on the edge of it found this hidden treasure.
On the outside a normal small bar advertising 2 canas and 2 tapas for 2.50. We entered and ordered.
Our first tapa was sausage and bread – we were satisfied with this but as soon as we had finished the plate was taken away and another brought with a blood sausage and bread.
We bought another round and were treated to boccarones – small fried fish and large prawns – the eating part was as big as your thumb – this was followed by a plate of antipasta.
Another round yielded freshly made quesadilla.
So after 6 drinks and 6 tapas we were presented with the bill of 15 euros – we left a 20 – we were stuffed and we are both big lads.
We decided to revisit the next day and when we arrived told Pietro that we would stay a couple of hours and have a few things to eat.
First up was freshly made fajitas – served with 3 types of sauce. These were spicey but not fiery enough to detract from the subtle mix of flavours.
We than had a plate of fish and prawns – i think Pietro went fishing whilst we had the first course – they were so fresh!!
We then had the piece de resistance – a fried chicken fillet in a delicious sauce served with pasta.
This nearly brought tears to my eyes it was so good.
As ive said Im a large guy – quite often when I go out to eat I stand up feeling hungry – at this point standing up was going to prove difficult. Even more so when the Tiramisu came out.
This was followed by a couple of shots of the hosts home made Limoncello.
With the meal we had 8 beers,2 coffees and the best part of a bottle of Rioja Reserve.
And the bill for this feast? 43 euros. Each? NO!! 43 euros for the pair of us.
Not only was the whole experience first class but Pietro will cook a marvellous meal and then spend time discussing what he has cooked, the different flavourings he has used, why he has done this , why he prefers that method....
I really can not recommend Ernestos enough. If you want quality food , freshly prepared in a welcoming environment you really must go.
Nearly all of the chinese restaurants offer 'happy meal' options for around 3 euros for 2 courses and coffee (or ice cream). I won't deny they have kept me fed (and therefore alive!) on many a skint day, but wanted to encourage you to keep your expectations low! For 3 euros you can't complain, it's not 'bad' food but i wouldn't say it was 'good' food either! If you can afford it, order from the menu! If you're poor and hungry, its a bargain!
Favorite Dish: The happy meals usually consist of chinese salad or spring roll, then sweet and sour chicken or a beef something served with rice or noodles, then tea, coffee or ice cream.
It's just a little local bar, (british local not atall spanish!) Standard benidorm menu- chicken and chips, curry and chips, steak and chips etc but specials also avaliable.
On sundays through the winter they offer the best sunday roast ever!
Favorite Dish: Roast chicken, roast pots, mash, yorkshire pud, parsnips, swede, cabbage, peas, carrots, brocoli, coliflower. and gravy!! i'd advise that u don't eat for at least 2 days before if u want to manage it all!!
It costs a bit more than your standard roasts but worth every cent!
The food and service, the two vital ingredients in any restaurant experience are both extremely good here. Unlike so many "Indian" restaurants, the owner and chef are in fact both Indian, rather than Bangladeshi or Pakistani (as suggested by a previous reviewer).
Favorite Dish: My own personal favourite is theior vegetable korma which, being a mild dish, is often an excuse for blandness: not here!!
