RINCON DE CALPE, CALPE 965832460
Calle Oscar Esplá is one of many small streets connected to Avenida Gabriel Miró, the principal street of old town Calpe. The unassuming Rincon de Calpe is situated at no.2 with a small frontage.
As is often the case, the bar area leads into a large and comfortable dining area which is decorated with tiles, paintings and a beamed ceiling.
It was a chilly January day when we entered and we were the only foreigners present but the welcome was warm. The menu del diá was priced at €15.25 for three courses and one drink. For starters there was a selection of tapas, salad and albondigas. The main course was either a mixed meat paella or chicken breast with a red pepper sauce.
Some of our group opted to go á la carte and enjoyed garlic soup or tortilla for starters followed up with pork chops (€10.25) and delicious grilled prawns in garlic (€14.50).
Our host selected a very enjoyable Ribero del Duero called Senerio Real (€15.25).
We rounded off our traditional Spanish lunch with coffees and brandy and this brought the cost to €28.60 p.p.
