PITONS RESTAURANTE, PEDREGUER
Was a five star…
Just over two years ago our club visited this restaurant and awarded it our top rating of five stars. It has since changed ownership and the star rating has dropped to three.
Pitons, which can mean Pythons or horns in Spanish, is located on the road from Pedreguer to Benidoleig. It is now being operated by the owners of the long established and popular BB Grill in Vergel.
The menu del día is still priced at just €12 however the choice of dishes has become quite limited: potato salad followed by either chicken fillet or lomo of pork. As a consequence most of group decided to go á la carte.
For starters, melon with serrano ham was a popular choice and the portions were very generous, as they were for the mixed salad. Indeed one dish between two would be sufficient for most appetites.
Our main course selections included a half chicken (€6), beef fillet brocheta, (€14) and lamb chops (€14) all served with chips and garnish.
The house wines were from Bodegas Julian Santos in La Mancha, both red and white priced at €7 and eminently drinkable.
In summary Pitons offers good food and value for money, but to take full advantage it is recommended to go á la carte and share the starters. By the way, the clue to the meaning of Pitons is to be found over the fireplace in the restaurant.
Our lunch cost just €17.62 p.p.
