In this restaurant of Guadalest, it is a good choice to begin with some starters and continue with some fish, meat or rice.
We do assure that their recommendations are the best products of the day. And the thing is that every morning, Pepe and his son Rafa attend to the fish market to buy what has just been fished as well as to obtain only those meats that are trustworthy. These products are always fresh and even some vegetables are from their own crop, a little garden located at the feet of the restaurant in Guadalest.
Amelia’s ‘Olleta de Blat’ is very well-known in this restaurant of Guadalest and yet it has appeared in different TV programmes as ‘España Directo’ explaining how to prepare it. However, and despite not being so much popular, we also recommend creamy rice with monkfish and clams, served in a clay pan for you to enjoy not only the taste, but also the smell. Iberian cheeks, sirloins, chops, sea bass, gilt-head and an endless number of dishes that may vary depending on the season.
You cannot reject the desserts of this restaurant… oh my goodness! Hot chocolate stuffed sponge cake, pistachio ice-cream stuffed caramelized ravioli, Paris-brest with home-made custards… Leave some space in your stomach for them.
