So my reconnaissance expeditions to Spain continue this week with Denia region next up for scrutiny.

Yes you must check location, facilities, housing stock, transport, health provision etc BUT sod all that, does anyone know who does a bloody good steak in Denia?

Thanks

Merendero Gallego

Restaurante Merendero Gallego

We were recommended this restaurant by friends of ours who own a villa in Denia. Unfortunately, when we tried to go there in January, it was shut at the time so we never ate there, but it will be open now.

They told me that the the owners raise their own beef cattle and the steaks are excellent. If you google it, you will find the address.

Happy for about €40 a head but after that my wallet wont open

I am tight, infact so tight I owe myself money

I wouldn't go all the way to Denia for a steak - there are very good steaks to be had on my side of the mountain - but my Denia friends recommend the following:

El Gaucho (think that technically that might be in Jávea?)
El Bravo at New Marina
Merendero Gallego (affectionately known as the Cow Shed)
Cam Broche in the port
The Black Sheep in La Pedrera
Restaurante Xacobeo, Plaza de la Cruz
Peix y Brases near the harbour

Ultra expensive, 3 Michelin stars, enters in the world's top 50 restaurants, appears on TV shows, etc.

Probably nearer €200 a head.

I'm told this one in Jávea is pretty amazing...

Bon Amb


no - I've never been
Yes Bon Amb is pretty amazing, they have a very creative chef, excellent wine list, but it comes at a price!!! very expansive, we will keep that one for special occasions only.
Le Gourmand (bistro style) restaurant on the Jesus Poble rd also serve very good steaks.
