I am looking for recommendations of a proper genuine Spanish tapas bar/restaurant, anywhere within 20 minutes drive from La Marina - so Torrevieja to Santa Pola or inland.

Our favourite venue - Bodega Los Carmelos in La Marina - is closed in September and we have family coming to stay who love going there, so we are looking for somewhere similar, ideally somewhere that only does tapas.

Many thanks if any members can recommend a place.

Geoff.

Hi Geoff - all but one of the tapas places I've been in also do meals, but what's wrong with the big name tapas chain - Lizarran?

Yeah, good point Jim, but last time our folks were here we suggested Lizarran, but the consensus was that it was "not traditional Spanish enough"!!

Bodega Los Carmelos is a hard act to follow!

I may have to settle for somewhere that does meals as well. Know anywhere that has a good selection of tapas (not just half a dozen, like some), please?

Geoff.

I don't know, Geoff, sorry. There used to be a good one in the casino precinct at Almoradi, near the front at Guardamar, and on the front at Santa Pola, but they've all changed hands.

So come on folks - I'm interested in this as well as Geoff!

I've just found reference to another place on another forum - I won't mention which it is because it's cr*p!

100 Montaditos at La Zenia Boulevard. All tapas on the menu at 1 euro on Wednesday (normally 1.20 to 1.50) and beer/lager/radler on offer for each tapa you buy. Small serrano and cheese rolls, tuna and mayo, chips with 4 sauces, popcorn chicken, in fact, 100 of them to choose from.

Thank you Jim, very interesting. We'll tell our son & daughter-in-law when they get here!

We recently tried Meson de Laura in Guardamar. Nice place, good food, but a touch expensive for what you get, tapas-wise, as compared with, for example, the average menu-del-día.

Geoff.
