RESTAURANTE LA CALMA, DENIA 966288587
Lunch by the beach
La Calma is a modern elegant restaurant overlooking the beach on the Denia costa. The address is 14 Calle del riu Alcora which is about 15 minutes drive up the coast from the centre of Denia, due north of Els Poblets.
The restaurant was refurbished in 2018 in a black and white theme. There are extensive toldos outside so that diners are well protected from the sun whilst eating lunch and enjoying watching the bathers.
There is no menu del día so consequently the price of lunch can be substantial.
Our starters included a delicious gambon crujiente, steamed mussels, tough calmares, and ceviche de lubina. For main course we selected fideua (€15 per portion), sirloin steak, one of which was chewy (€19 each) and a tasty Angus hamburger (€14).
The wines accompanying the dishes were most enjoyable and both priced at €12, a Rueda Verdejo called Canto Real and the red, Laderas de Unx from Navarra.
This was an enjoyable, but pricey, lunch at €42.81 p.p.
