COVA DEL MERO, DENIA 965784864
On the beach
Cova del Mero is to be found on the beach 5kms north of Denia just off the Carretera Las Marinas. The restaurant is extensive with a large patio area that is sheltered from the elements by a not particularly attractive tent like structure. The food however makes up for any deficiencies on the décor front.
The specialities of Cova del Mero are rice dishes and fish. There are three menus del día, starting at €18 and moving up to €23. The portions were all most generous and we started with delicious chiperones fritos, cuttlefish and salads.
Our host chose to ignore the house wines and instead selected a Rueda Verdejo called Sanz and the reliable Viña Pomal Crianza, both priced at €15.
For our main course we had pork fillet with a port sauce and grilled sole, both cooked to perfection. Home made profiteroles were the choice for dessert.
We completed our enjoyable meal with coffees and the rather pricey brandy (€4.50), pushed the cost up to €31.66 p.p.
