LOS ARCOS, PEDREGUER 965760036
Cheap if not very cheerful
Los Arcos is primarily a venue for hosting large wedding receptions and the like. It is located on the busy N332 at km 194, on the left hand side of the road travelling north towards Ondara. It is opposite Restaurant Tasca la Sella.
The free standing building is vast and when we were there for lunch more than half of the salon had been partitioned off; even so it still had the intimacy of a barn. A large flat screen television provided diners with the news in Valenciano.
Our server listed off the menu del día, which was priced at the bargain amount of just €10 for pan & alioli, salad, a choice of three starters, main courses and desserts as well as a glass of the house wine.
For main course we tried all three options: pork fillet, roast chicken and a salmon steak that was tasteless and not very warm.
Our host kindly decided to trade up from the house wine which allegedly came from Castillo and instead we enjoyed Montesierra Crianza (€10) from Somontano.
Including coffees and brandies, the cost p.p. for this “memorable” lunch was €16.31
