CASA ROLANDO, CALPE 965831052
No Misteaks at Casa Rolando
Located at no.3 C/ Dr. Fleming, a shady street in downtown Calpe, Casa Rolando is a small intimate Argentinian restaurant.
Efficiently run by a well known Argentinian husband and wife team, it is very popular with both Spanish and Expats alike as it offers really good value menus del día, which particularly appeal to staunch canivores.
Priced at just €9.90, the two course menu del día includes bread, a drink, and dessert or coffee. The starters on offer were cod stew, casseroled eggs or mixed salad.
Thereafter the choice was a sea-food noodle dish called fideuá de mariscos, oven-baked pork lomo or fried whiting.
Three of our group upgraded to the €19 menu which included an Argentinian style pasty, or salad, followed by beef fillet or a Galician entrecote.
Both were excellent and were accompanied by the very acceptable house wine from La Mancha called Ramon Corta.
Desserts were the usual flan, ice cream or profiterolls.
Casa Rolando is a cosy atmospheric restaurant and it is important to book your table as it fills up early, both at lunchtime and in the evening.
