EL CAMPO, JAVEA 961134466
Chill and grill
El Campo is listed as being part of Javea but is in fact a lot closer to the centre of Benitachell. It is situated at Travessia de les Cansalades 134 and has been under renovation for the past two years and now has new owners; with some great landscaping they have created a restaurant with lovely ambience and plenty of space – not cluttered like many restaurants today.
There is a menu del día priced at €18, not including any drinks, but all but one of us decided to opt for the á la carte which did not work out much more expensive.
We started with garlic prawns, mussels and salmon but thereafter the focus was on meat.
El Campo has a dish on the menu called a Super Bad Burger (€48) and it was so large that it was sufficient for four men!
Other items from the grill of El Campo were lamb chops (€26) and a half rack of ribs (€12.95).
On the wine front we enjoyed Tierras de Murillo Rioja and a Verdejo from Tierra de Castilla, both modestly priced at €11 and €12 respectively.
At €34 p.p. this was not a cheap meal, but the food was excellent, the service provided by Emma was seamless and the enjoyment memorable.
