Las Negras is a Spanish seaside town in the province of Almería, belonging to the municipality of Níjar. It is located within the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata-Níjar about 50 km from the provincial capital, Almeria and is a great base for exploring the area.
It was very busy and lively when we visited in July 2019 and was virtually 100% Spanish tourists. Most of the waiters in the restaurants did not speak any English.
La Sal is a restaurant with a good product and cooking with certain pretensions, a wine list above the average for the area and fantastic views overlooking the beach (which has darki...
If you are looking for well made, traditional Spanish food on the long winding beach road that runs along Mojácar Playa then Casa Egea is the place to come.
Here you will find real Spanish food from authentic recipes, lovingly prepared by this family-run restaurant of three generations which has been here since 1995.
They serve excellent seafood and fish, an ever-changing menu of local specialities, from rabbit and octopus and snails. Good for a sit-down meal, lunchtime or evening or for truly authentic Spanish tapas go through to the bar at the back of the restaurant for a wonderful selection of tapas, where...
This is an Interesting restaurant in the middle of Almería, heading down towards the port area. It is set in an alleyway off the main street and was full of locals on the evening we attended, which is always a good sign.
There are tables outside in the alleyway and a restaurant in a room at the back and tall tables with stalls in the bar area
They serve a very varied menu, including Almería’s typical traditional dishes and specialities of the house.
With every drink, in our case, a copa de cava (€4.50) you get to choose a tapa from the free tapa menu.
We had good lomo a la antigua (old fashioned pork te...
We made our way, after our short three day trip to Ibiza, by plane to Alicante. We then drove down to Garrucha to meet the rest of the invited guests at the Garrucha fish auction house to learn about the famous Gambarojo...
As you approach this restaurant, which is in a slightly out of the way location along the main coastal road between Agua Amarga and Carboneras, you may think you are entering someone's back garden.
That is exactly what it feels like if you dine outside in the evening, where you can sit in the courtyard on lovely tables in the shade of pomegranate trees and enjoy the stunning sunset and the view back to Agua Amarga over the sea.
Inside you will find two, more formal rooms and a bar area
On this evening in early May, we chose to sit inside and started with:
Drive past the Hotel Indalo on the road from Mojácar to Carboneras, bare right inland and take a left at the third roundabout onto Playa Macenas where you will see the Castillo de Macenas, just before the Macenas golf goes inland.
Drive past Chiringuito Macenas (you could stop here for a drink and/or tapas) and onto a dirt road which is not in great condition and initially runs along the edge of the sea on a cliff and then winds through canyons inland.
You will see stunning scenery on the drive and with due caution it is perfectly passable by car.
It is quite a rough and bumpy track but eventuall...
