Fab Benidorm Restaurants

Benidorm is home to scores of restaurants. And the wide-ranging choice of international cuisine transports you from Spain to Colombia and Italy to Argentina with stops in between for the flavours of Belgium, Germany, Japan, India, Thailand and China. And let us not forget the many British restaurants and cafés that have helped to establish Benidorm as one of Europe’s premier holiday destinations.

Pintxos Aurrera

Tapas is always a good place to start when in Benidorm. And the Aurrera Group’s first ever restaurant, opened in 1991, is as good a place as any to kickstart our Benidorm food fest. With it’s Basque origins and steadfast focus on authenticity, you cannot go too far wrong when seeking out a high quality tapas meal in the Old Town. As with most Benidorm restaurants the myriad of tapas dishes have their English-language description which is a real help when trying to determine where to begin.

It comes as no surprise to discover that where there are Brits there is a curry house or two. It is our ‘national’ dish, after all! There are several scattered throughout the resort but the one we visit most often is Sherpa in Benidorm Old Town. The food is spot on and the service really friendly.

The Dining Room

This Art Deco inspired restaurant hits all the right notes. Popular with couples and groups celebrating a birthday or anniversary but also a simply wonderful dining experience to enhance your holiday. The food is what you might describe as European/Mediterranean with vegetarian and gluten-free options. We love it, the interior design makes you feel a little special and the front of house staff seem to enjoy what they are doing which is always a plus!

Daily Catch

For us, we wouldn’t look anywhere else for Fish and Chips. You might pay a little more but while you’re pouring some curry sauce over your chips, you are gazing directly out to the Mediterranean Sea and Peacock Island! The beach shack interior gives off the right vibe and the all round ambience and service is spot on.

Los Ranchos

One of our favourites on the Levante Beach promenade. Whether it’s a snack – top place for a ham and cheese toastie – or a paella for two, and a lot more in between, Los Ranchos is a welcoming place in a great location. They do a good breakfast with a nice coffee; a genuinely nice place to get your day off to a good start.

Avanti Pizzeria

Opened in 1998, Avanti has been telling its Italian story for over quarter of a century now. We arrived late to the party, having our first meal there in 2004. But since then whenever the pizza and pasta bug takes hold a table for two at Avanti is always the cure. Although cosy and intimate inside, an outside street table in summer is always the preferred option.

Grill 64

Open now for a few years, Grill 64’s menu runs from breakfast to your evening meal. Specialising in meat on the barbecue, they do a really nice steak and a cracking burger. With its position on the main Mediterranean Avenue drag, you’re in the ideal spot to fit in a light lunch before or after a bit of retail therapy!
