BON GUST BENISSA 965731949
Although this restaurant opened four years ago, only one of our club members present had lunched here before and what a revelation it turned to be for the rest!
Bon Gust is located at Carrer Nou 22, a couple of streets from the large church in the centre of Benissa and from the outside it looks like a typical Spanish bar with branded plastic tables and chairs on the pavement in front. Behind this deceptive front however is a classy bar and restaurant consisting of a series of rooms decorated with wooden walls and floors, glass and chrome.
The restaurant attracts the business community of Benissa and we were the only foreigners present. The menu del día costs €14 for three courses and a half bottle of wine.
The choice of starters included croquetas of ham and cod, salad or really fresh calamares à la romano.
For our main courses we chose between an excellent arroz a banda, grilled swordfish and baked lamb that literally fell off the bone, it was so tender.
Our desserts were a chocolate torte and ice cream.
The house white was a delicious Rueda Verdejo with the unusual name of K-naia and our generous host treated us to the wonderful Rioja Muga 2008 Crianza (€22). Finally we rounded off this enjoyable lunch with mistelas which brought the total cost p.p. to a very reasonable €20.27.
NB This restaurant closed in Spring 2014
