    Being a unashamed foody I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread on restaurants that can be recommended by funsters around the world. I will start off with the first one which we use often whilst in the Benidorm area. This one does an excellent lunch menu at 11 Euros per head with 3 starters a main course and desert including a bottle of wine. It looks out onto a lovely bay and is south facing, so gets the winter sun all afternoon. I have never taken dinner there, so don't know what that's like, but the lunch is superb. Google streetview it and see for yourself. Restaurant Peter, 8 Avinguda De La Marina Baixa La Cala, Benidorm.

    Lunch starts at 13-00, but to get a front line table arrive at 12-15 and take a few aperitifs first. Bon appetit.

    Being a free loading, lowlife, off-site motorhomer I save enough bundles of cash to be able to eat out several times a decade and one of my favourite eateries is "Rui's." (Modina Restaurant)

    This fourth generation, family owned and run restaurant/cafe/bar is right by the lake at Pego De Altar. (10 kms from Alcacer do Sal)

    You can have a snack/meal/coffee/beer either in the cafe area or you can go "posh" and dine in the restaurant or "al fresco" on the recently finished balcony over looking the lake.

    Hope to be there this coming week with my VIP visitor. :Wink:

    We are off to Sabor in Albir for lunch with some Norwegian friends today. Its a Belgian restaurant which I have never been too but will give a revue if am still sober enough tonight. Unfortunately I have been Norwegianised a few times in the last couple of weeks. Those Norwegians are like fish when they are in Spain. Something to do with the price of alcohol in Norway. Am quite looking forward to this one though as have heard some good reports of the restaurant.

    We are not talking the cheapest here, and we are not talking foreign climes, but Cafe Rosa, formerly Lezayre tea rooms on the Isle of Man, is for those 'special occasions'.
    Family owned and ran, the husband is a Michelin star chef, and the food can only be described as 'exquisite'!
    Everything is fresh, or home grown, and because of the amount, i have yet to finish a main meal. Book well in advance for a table as they are only open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
    I defy anyone to tackle a three course meal there.
    As Tina Turner would sing......'Simply the best'!

    Another good one for anyone in the Benidorm area that likes Chinese food is the Wok in Albir. Its an all you can eat buffet for 9.5 Euros. there is mountains of fresh fish and seafood that you chooses and they cook in front of you, as well as already cooked food. The Sushi is extremely good also. How they can make a profit on that lot I have no idea, am sure they make a loss when I eat there, but they still welcome me each time I go :BigGrin:

    what a good idea well done.

    Our favourite little resturant in France is this one here http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaura...e_Restaurant-Berny_Riviere_Aisne_Picardy.html

    We have been several times now and its excellent more like the guys living room than a resturant also has a little bar open during the day.

    The guy who runs it speaks excellent english and has a great sense of humour. we hadnt been for 2 years and he remembered my daughters Name.

    Our rule is, "eat where locals eat" works all the time, except once when we tried the local delicacy "stewed smoked eel". Makes me sick even blogging about it.:Sad: Phil

    Restaurants plus you can take the dog

    Jack's Bistro in St Annes, 'yes in the UK' and you can take the dog. The food is superb, mid price, quite often busy, so give them a bell before arriving. Right next to M&S food store.
