Well I have to say, yesterday five of us went out for lunch at a new restaurant in Playa Granada, which is located in the golf region. As a matter of fact, this restaurant is directly across from the clubhouse. What a meal, absolutely 5 star. It was one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant since arriving here 8 years ago.
Our choices were simple, but boy oh boy were they good. Two of us had pizza, two had caneloni, and one had carpaccio. There are a ton of interesting things on the menu, steak, 3 or 4 different types of carpaccio, pastas, salads, and lots more. Forgive me for not noticing everything, but I am hopeless with a menu, I go into a trance when I read them, hence I take nothing in. I normally just ask the others, “what are you having, oh that sounds good I will have that too”. So my choice was a simple pizza, tomato sauce, cheese and onion, on which I drizzled picante olive oil. I felt just like Homer Simpson must feel when he gets a big ol’ pork chop in his mouth.. allgggggggahhh. I give it a 10 out of 10.
Everyone said their meals were good as well, N&J they gave their caneloni and 8. And A, who had the carpaccio with porcini mushrooms and sauted artichoke said hers was definitely very good, couldn’t get a number out of her though. H loved her pizza but went crazy when ordering and had too many toppings rendering it very rich. We all had drinks, large glasses of wine or beer not just one either and coffees at the end. Total for the meal 102 euros for 5 people before tip. Very reasonable, and I will definitely go back.
Where were we??? ROBERTO’S Playa Granada just a 10 minute drive down the road. If you are coming to the area you have to try this place out. The décor is beautiful, service is excellent and the rest rooms spotless. Very Nuevo. They have indoor and outdoor dining, and a hopping bar area. You just got to try it.
One last thing, they brought a tapa of delicious olives to eat while waiting for our foods, plus garlic toasties. Make note, they charge for the garlic toasties.
A few snaps.
