RESTAURANTE PITONS, PEDREGUER 654872338
El Quijote on the move
Restaurante Pitons is located on the road between Pedreguer and Benidoleig at Partida Campell 14. It was formerly based in Orba where it operated under the name of El Quijote, but has now moved to larger premises with plenty of parking spots.
Former customers of El Quijote will recognise many of the rustic pieces of furniture in the new surroundings and there is a substantial terrace for al fresco dining.
The menu del día still costs just €12 including a half bottle of house wine which is exceptional value. The wines were from La Mancha and called Carlades.
First up were a selection of tapas on the house – croquetas, cocas, and cheese and jamon on slices of bread.
The starters that we ordered then arrived, a spectacularly presented langoustines and fresh pineapple, avocado with prawns and the famous patatas a lo pobre – a substantial plate of bacon, eggs and sautéed potatoes.
Moving on to our main course we indulged chicken smothered in a delicious mustard sauce, chicken with an excellent spicy sauce and a huge churrasco de ternera.
We rounded off the lunch with almond tart and ice cream and then indulged in the selection of digestifs which amazingly were also included in the price of the menu del día.
