One of the first things you will notice in Alicante Spain is that the city is full of diverse bars, pubs and restaurants.
Whether in the city center or in suburbs, you can have a snack or take a coffee on almost every street. There are offers that suit all tastes and pockets.
Walking along the streets of Alicante, you will see many small blackboards in front of restaurants and tapas bars with hand-written menus. Always ask first for el menu del dia – a lower-priced meal with 2 or 3 dishes, including a drink and a dessert of your choice. The food is always fresh and flavours are great and sometimes surprising.
Most Alicante restaurants offer you delicious Mediterranean dishes in a typical Spanish atmosphere. You can, for example, enjoy a variety of traditional seafood, the famous Spanish jam, tasty potato tortillas or our celebrated Alicante paella (local rice dish). Do not forget the excellent Spanish wine!
We also invite you to visit other more classical restaurants. You can try British, French or German-style cuisine, as well as have a dinner in one of the numerous pizzerias with Italian food.
