LA SEU, DENIA 966424478
Another visit to Calle Loreto in Denia, this time to number 59 where Restaurante La Seu is to be found, a few doors away from its sister Ca la Pepa Teresa. Indeed the layout of the two is very similar with a long courtyard enclosed by high walls and an awning to keep out any inclement weather or low flying eggs.
Unusually however, the kitchen is in full view of the diners behind a glass wall and one can clearly see that everything is produced from scratch and the freshness of the dishes shines through the whole meal.
La Seu´s menu del dia costs €18 and includes an array of tapas followed by one of three rice main courses and a dessert. Some of us preferred to select a main course from the à la carte menu and this was achieved by a supplement of €6.
The starter dishes included freshly baked bread and toast with garlic and olive oil. There followed carpaccio of red tuna, again really fresh. The cocas of grilled vegetable and sliced mackerel were particularly tasty as were the other tapas of sliced veal with herbs and sautéed calamari with artichokes.
The main courses were rice with cuttlefish, rice with meat and vegetables and arroz abanda and all three were given the thumbs up by our experts. Those of us that went “off piste” selected fillet of Angus beef and a rock fish called Sargo, both good.
Together with coffees and brandy this delicious meal cost €38.25 p.p.
