CASA EUSEBIO BENISSA 965732410
Casa Eusebio is located at the top of Avenida de Valencia in Benissa, and is well known for the excellent tapas served up in the narrow bar that leads into the elegant restaurant. Unfortunately the recession appears to be taking its toll and besides our group there were only two other customers present for lunch.
The menu del día is priced at €18, some €2 cheaper than in 2010, however the choice of dishes is now very limited. For the first course there was a selection of five tapas or a fish soup, both of which were delicious. However for the main course we could only choose between either rice with vegetables or steamed cod. We all selected the cod but wondered why there was no meat dish on offer.
The dessert choice was again limited to either flan or fresh figs with ice cream. A glass of wine was included in the price of the menu del día, but thankfully our host splashed out on several bottles of Palacio de Bornos Rueda (€13.50) and an Otazu Crianza from Navarra (€16.50) and this lifted our spirits in what was otherwise a rather disappointing lunch which cost €31.90 p.p.
