AGUA DE MAR , MARINA DE DENIA, DENIA. 966425007
Menu del Dia: Euro 20.80 and 26.90 Number of attendees: Seven and one visitor.
The Restaurant “Agua de Mar” is located on the south side of Denia’s port area known as “Marina de Denia”. The large terrace, located on the first floor, enjoys views of the yacht harbour and Denia Castle on one side, the other vista being the bay of Denia. The interior of the restaurant is very attractive and intimate.
Parking in the Marina is no problem except perhaps on weekends. Only 3 of the 8 members present opted for the Menu del Dia at Euros 20.80 which consisted of four well-presented starters, for the main course a choice of six rice dishes, a meat or fish dish, followed by a choice of four desserts. The rest of the group chose puntilla de calamar, pulpo a la brasa, mejillones and carpaccio de higos from a wide selection of starters. As a main course tartare de ternera de Gallega, solomillo con salsa trufa, rape azafaran and ensalada bogavante were the preferred choice. All dishes were freshly cooked, and served on hot plates. White table-cloths and serviettes and an excellent service is the trademark of this restaurant. Both wines chosen cost Euros 15.50 each. For the white we had a Rueda – Verdejo Berasategui – the restaurant’s house wine, and the red Ribero del Duero – Manso 3 meses – both of which were very much appreciated.
The lunch per person cost Euros 42.60 including coffee and brandy – not cheap, but worth it.
The location, excellent food, wines and service were praised and appreciated by all the members!
