Restaurants in the Costa Blanca


Costa Blanca restaurants
Casa Pepa
Partida Pamis, 70-30, Ondara
Tel: 965 766 606
One of the most famous restaurants in the Costa Blanca just 10km from Denia. Owned and led by Pepa Romans, the restaurant is set in a beautiful rural country villa, tastefully decorated. Only open in the evenings during the Summer months, Casa Pepa has been a firm favourite for locals and visitors for years now, so you should reserve. Traditional local dishes and modern cuisine. We recommend the menú de degustación which at 50 euros is a bargain.

Restaurante Al Zaraq
Partida de Benimarraig, 79, N-332 km. 172
Tel: 96 573 16 15


One of Spain's best Arab restaurant near Calpe and Benissa. Exquisite Lebanese and Palastinian dishes served in elegant and exotic surroundings with spectacular views over one of the most attractive areas of the Costa Blanca. The restaurant offers several menus which vary in price. We recommend all of them!! Choose the house starters to savour delicious tastes of incredible Arab delights created by Abdo Muhsen followed by one of his exquisite lamb dishes as a main course (we recommend lamb with dates). And then the house deserts.... - a mouth-watering selection of sweets made with almonds and honey and served with sweet, spicey tea. Al Zaraq is also a small hotel offering 4 tastefully decorated rooms to its lucky guests and outstanding breakfasts served by the talented Abdo and his charming wife, Cristina whose hospitality is simply a tonic. The perfect place to unwind and forget the stresses of daily life. Highly recommended.
Restaurante Batiste
Av. Fernando Perez Ojeda, 6,
Santa Pola
Tel: 965 411 185
If you are looking for a fish and rice restaurant in the southern part of the Costa Blanca, then Batiste is always a good option. Specialising in rices, shellfish and fish, the Batiste restaurant gets its fresh produce from the Santa Pola fishing harbour so everthing is incredibly fresh. Lovely big windows overlooking the harbour, elegant tables and chairs, attentive service and very good prices. Advisable to book a table because it is very very popular, especially at weekends.

Casa Cantó
Av. País Valenciá, 237
Tel. 96 573 06 29

Lovely building with beautiful views over Benissa and Calpe, Casa Cantó is a stylish restaurant offering first-class traditional dishes typical of this area of the Costa Blanca. Try the little pizza-like "cocas" for starters and choose fish or rice as a main course. Highly recommended
Restaurante Emilio
Avda. Vicente Calderón Bloque F-5
Playa de Gandía
Tel. 962 840 761.
One of Gandía's best known restaurants, famous for fideua, a version of seafood paella made with noodles instead of rice. Casa Emilio is just a few minutes walk from Gandía's beautiful long beach, and serves other tasty rice dishes, fish and seafood. Good quality and generous portions. Reserve before going, especially in Summer. Service can be a bit slow and the staff seem a bit hassled.
