TASCA MORAIRA, MORAIRA 966491911
Delicious starters, pity about the rest…
Tasca Moraira is an atmospheric restaurant situated on Calle Playas in the old part of Moraira town overlooking the port. There are numerous restaurants in the area and the competition must be fierce between them. The menu especial at Tasca Moraira costs €20 for a starter, a main course, dessert or coffee, but no drinks.
The starters were outstanding, in particular the prawns in garlic but also the calamares a la romana and the Tasca salad. These were followed up by a refreshing sorbet. Our host selected the house red, a perfectly acceptable Ribero del Duero called Darsena (€12.80) and traded up a bit for the white with a Verdejo from Rueda (€15.50).
The main courses, in contrast to the starters, were a disappointment. The entrecote was tough, the sole dry and the shoulder of lamb so-so. Most of us skipped the dessert and settled for coffee and brandy. Our lunch which started so well at Tasca Moraira cost €31.21 p.p.
