ANDALUCÍA - ALMERÍA - AGUA AMARGA - ASADOR LA CHUMBERA
ASADOR LA CHUMBERA
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:
Anchoas del cantábrico con pan tomate (Cantabrian anchovies with tomato and bread)
Boquerones del cantábrico con vinagreta de tomate y caviar de anchoas (cantabrian anchovies with tomato vinaigrette and anchovy caviar)
Croquetas de gambas roja de Garrucha (croquettes of red shrimp from Garrucha)
Do ask about the fish of the day which extends the menu further.
On the day we visited medregal (amberjack) was on offer, along with Jibia plancha (grilled cuttlefish), filetes de pargo (fillets of red snapper), Lenguado (sole) and Atún rojo (bluefin tuna)
Meat dishes included:
Magret de pato (duck) Chuletas de cordero (lamb cutlets) Chuletón de buey o de ternera de Tudela Del Duero (T-bone steak) Presa ibérica (Iberica pork) Solomillo de buey (sirloin steak)
Sorbete de limón con cava (lemon sorbet with cava)
Tarta de queso de la casa (cheesecake of the house)
Brownie con helado de vainilla y culis de fresa (chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and strawberry coulis)
We finished with a limoncello-hierbas like libation and a coffee liquor.
To drink we had a bottle of Cava to start €35 and an excellent Campo de Borja, recommended by the waiter €20
Service was very friendly, helpful and quite fun
Although the restaurant was not very busy on this early season occasion. You will need to reserve in the summer months.
After your meal, sit back and relax on the terrace
and enjoy the fabulous view over the Cabo de Gata national park and the wonderful atmosphere in the court yard.
