For November, Moraira U3A’s Dining Out Group visited Antiquary Restaurant in Benitachell. A lovely Spanish restaurant. This was the first time that most of the diners had been to this restaurant and they certainly did not leave disappointed.
The atmosphere was warm and cosy and it made a pleasant change to dine in a traditional restaurant away from the commercial feel of some of the Javea and Moraira restaurants, nice though they are.
The food was excellent, starting with a wide range of tapas to suit all tastes. In addition to the three course menu, we enjoyed a welcome glass of cava, water and half a bottle of wine each with the meal, followed by coffee and liqueur. All included in the price and extremely good value.
Maria with her young table staff were very accommodating and the chef, Antonio, ensured that we Brits had hot food served on warm plates.
On the last evening, the diners seemed to be reluctant to leave, a further evidence of a successful evening.
Well done to Peter & Pauline Griffiths for introducing us to this restaurant and for their smooth organisation.
