Taverna llorenç-botero is located in the heart of the village of Senija at Plaza Ayuntamiento 13.

The restaurant is small in size and the walls are decorated with paintings, plates and other bric-a-brac which create a great atmosphere.

The menu del día costs €10 and consists of six courses of tapas, a main course and a glass of wine. Our tapas courses included Russian salad, followed by a homemade Tortilla, hard boiled egg with anchovy, patatas bravas, baby broad beans and fresh salad. All delicious.

For main course we had pelota, meat wrapped in cabbage accompanied by stock. Again very tasty. The house wines were both from Utiel Requena and called Capellana, priced at €6.



All in all, a very pleasant lunch, in authentic surroundings. Cost p.p. €16.87

CASA MANOLO,     SENIJA   965730280


Exceptional valueDSC01088

Senija is a small village on the way from Benissa leading into the Val de Pop and a brief detour into the centre by the church can be a rewarding experience, not least because of the exceptional value being offered at Casa Manolo.


This restaurant has changed hands many times over the past decade but is now back with the family that started it. The décor is functional and rustic and here you can have a three course lunch including a half bottle of wine for just €10.


There is a choice of five starters – fresh salad, gaspacho, melon and Serrano ham, Pelotas (meatballs wrapped in cabbage) or spaghetti carbonara. All good and served up in hearty portions.


There are four main courses – calamares romano, merluza (hake), liver and onion or fillet of pork.

The calamares were really fresh and tasty and like the starters the portions were all substantial.DSC01079


We shared a selection of desserts and so our coffees were extra. The house wine was called Los Señores and was perfectly acceptable. All in all including brandies our lunch cost just €14.30 p.p. which has to be exceptional value.
