LA SENIA, DENIA 966432843
La Senia restaurant is attached to a boutique hotel called Nou Romà which is located in a veritable rabbit warren of streets around Avenida del Cid, which in turn is not far from the main street for restaurants in Denia, Calle Loreto.
La Senia has in fact three sister restaurants on Calle Loreto, namely Ca Pepa Teresa, La Seu and Els Tomassets.
We lunched al fresco and although there is a menu del día priced at €16 we decided to choose the evening menu which cost €20 and comprised 6 tapas, a main course and dessert, but not drinks.
The tapas dishes included toast drenched with olive oil, salad, croqueta of ham and cheese and cod croqueta, mini hamburgers, fried fishes, and steamed mussels –all very appetising.
For main course the choices were fillet of beef and beef sirloin and both were declared to be excellent. The meat and vegetable paella was acceptable.
The fish courses were grilled turbot which was good but the grilled monkfish was tiny and chewy.
In contrast the wines were excellent. The Rueda was Ermita Veracruz (€16) and the Rioja was called Meridiano (€18), however our choice pushed up the cost of our lunch to just over €40 p.p.
