Calpe Restaurants

Puerto Blanco *****

Restaurante Puerto Blanco, Calpe

This is probably one of the best restaurants in Calpe situated next to the small harbour of La Canuta. Follow the sign for Mar y villa (Maryvilla), turn right on small roundabout opposite the Guardia and follow the road down the hill for 1km with the restaurant located at sharp right bend with the harbour just in front. Puerto Blanco Harbour - Tel: 965830977 www.puertoblanco.eu


Casa del Maco *****

Restaurante El Maco, Calpe

This too is an extremely good restaurant, in summer on the terrace, with the most magnificent view towards Calpe. Set in the hills above Calpe Pou Roig-Lleus, follow the N332 road towards Benissa and after a small garden centre turn up left  with a gradient turn and follow a small single track road that continues for 2km and you will see signs. Well worth the effort. - Tel: 965732842 www.casadelmaco.com


El Toro

Restaurante El Toro, Calpe

A good new charcoal grill restaurant specializing in Argentinian Angus beef. The steaks and mixed grills are great and are served in an impressive wooden beamed restaurant and open summer terrace with a completely international clientele. Everything is a little oversized, including the portions, but that isn't a bad thing and the waiter is an Antonio Banderas lookalike. Located 20 meters along the Merced road from the new Mercadona. - Tel. 965836088


Restaurante Brabo

Restaurante Brabo, Calpe

You're not likely to go here be accident. If the garish pink exterior doesn't stop you the confused interior jumble might, with moorish arches, a stuffed deer, swiss cuckoo clock etc. However if you can get passed the decor it's probably the best value/ quality in Calpe with excellent imaginative Belgian cooking presented in ample quantities. Very highly recommended  with great menus from € 12 - €20. Try the fish gratin. Calle La Pinta 22, Tel 965837165 (closed Tuesdays).


El Andaluz

Restaurante El Andaluz, Calpe

One of the best places in Calpe for a delicious Paella or a fresh selection of tapas. El Andaluz has been providing fine rice dishes to the locals for years at an excellent quality/ price with an alternative being a "picoteo" of various imaginative tapas for € 10-15 or a la carte for €20 - 25. A traditional Spanish ambience with many local regulars. Better to book the Paella in advance (min.2 people) but it you don't it still comes in 20 - 30 minutes. Highly recommended. C/ Pintor Sorolla 21 Tel: 96 583 5566


Mundo de Carne

Restaurante Mundo de Carne, Calpe

Just round the corner from us in C/Blasco Ibañez, this is a steak restaurant with a difference. After ordering an entrée (for instance one of their excellent salads) you take your table ticket to a cold counter/display and choose a steak  (sirloin or entrecôte) cut as you want and directly weighed. The choice of beef is Argentinian Black Angus, Gallego, Catalan or Pyrenees and is all delicious. You choose a baked potato or French fries as an accompaniment and go back to your table. The sweets are also very good. Highly recommended with a local and foreign clientele. C/Blasco Ibañez 21. Tel: 95 583 9416.  Now closed (2018) - What a shame - it was really good.



Restaurante Abiss, Calpe

The most modernist of Calpe cuisine in a minimalist ambience with great views over Calpe beach and the Peñon de ifach.
