Dining Out Group leaders, John and Meri Snell, together with Brian and Pat Clarke, Peter and Pauline Griffiths, and Colin and Sue Donadio are hosts of the Dining Out Group.

The purpose of the group is for its members to have a good time meeting old and new friends while dining out at different restaurants in the Moraira, Teulada and Benitachell areas. The group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday evenings of each month from September to May at a restaurant chosen by the hosts for that month.

Details of the chosen restaurant, menus and costs are e-mailed to all group members well in advance of the event, and it is then up to the group members, (couples and singles), to decide whether they wish to attend, and then inform the hosts with their menu choices.

Depending on the restaurant, there are six to ten people per table. Table allocation at the first event of the month is by drawing lots, so seating is allocated, giving the chance to meet new friends, whereas there is free seating at the second event, giving people the opportunity to sit where they like, on a first come first choice basis.

The price per person for the menu will not normally be more than 25€, to include a 3 course meal, half a bottle of wine per person and water. Payment (cash only) is collected by the hosts at the event.
