LOS AMIGOS ALCALALI 966482270
Old friends are best
Los Amigos is located between La Solana and Restaurante Pepe on the Caretera de Pedreguer on the outskirts of the historic village of Alcalali. This restaurant is run by an unlikely couple of Spanish speaking Chinese and has a barn like interior.
Even though it was early February, the warm sunny weather meant that everyone chose to have lunch on the patio outside with wonderful views of the almond blossom throughout the Val de Pop.
The price of the menu del día depends of the choice of main course and ranges from €8.50 for roast chicken to €12.95 for Lenguado Meunière. For starters we selected seafood cocktail, aubergine stuffed with mince and peppers and avocado with prawns all tasty.
For the main course one of our group decided to go off piste and ordered Solomillo which brought the cost of his lunch to €18.50, whilst the rest of us enjoyed Lenguado à la plancha and a substantial duck swimming in a delicious orange sauce.
For dessert we had Los Amigos take on Trifle (described in the menu as tarta de flan con fruta y nata) and a selection of ice cream.
The menu included a half bottle of wine per person and we focussed on Quinteiro from Ourense. Together with a few beers and coffees the total per person was just over €19. This is a good unpretentious restaurant serving food that does not disappoint.
