VAL DEL POP, LLIBER 965731798
Val del Pop restaurant is positioned above Llíber, just off the road leading from the scenic village towards Gata de Gorgos.
The views from the outside terrace over the Pop (sometimes referred to as the Jalon) valley are stunning.
The menu del día is very competitively priced according to the main dish selected, ranging from just €8 up to €11.20. For our starters we selected a hearty meat soup and a substantial fresh salad, both good.
Our host decided to run with the house red which was Marqués de Labranza from Tierra de Castilla, but for the white he traded up to Darsena Verdejo from Rueda, again very reasonably priced at €10.40.
The main courses were all cooked on the Val del Pop´s renowned wood fired barbecue and included shoulder of lamb that just fell off the bone, pork fillet and fillet of beef all served with baked potato, tomato and aubergine.
Desserts, as is commonplace in many restaurants here, were bought in and comprised ice cream or flan. It turned out that we were the only guests for lunch this Friday although the following day the owner assured us there was a booking of over 100 guests for a wedding.
Including coffees and brandies this enjoyable lunch cost just €17.90 p.p.
