Centric
Neptuno
El Posito
Little Italy
O Lume
Can Ferra
Tango
L'Aup
La Fortelesa
Brisa Marina
Tolos
Torre Playa

my question to all is - what would you recommend and which would you try for lunch. And is there any of the above which you feel that there is a better alternative.

many thanks in advance

At Tolos I'd recommend the Saltimboca a la Romana - it's their own quirky take on the dish but I love it.

Neptuno - can't fault the chicken wings, the meat balls or the wonderful Russian roulette of the pimientos del padron.

Not on your list - but the lamb at Coral was v v good this time round.

Hi Gary
Only go to a couple of your suggestions so, at Tangos the gazpacho to start is delicious as well as the veggie paella which I think is the best in the port, and In Centric they do lovely pasta with just garlic and chillies, plain but very tasty if you fancy a change.
Hope this help.
As for lunch try Tiberi, they have a lot of starters that make a great lunch, works out cheaper too.
I hope you enjoy your trip

The suckling pig and lamb was always good at L'Aup but I've heard the restaurant has changed hands so not sure what the menu is like now.

I can't wait to go back! It's lovely at night sitting under the stars!

Centric is also good for suckling pig.

Actually, I've only had the suckling pig at Centric - hubby is the one who likes pork and had it twice at L'Aup!

The Tumbet at El Posito is great as is the squid.

Fried Milk in Olume

Thanks Jane

Hi Gary, sorry for belated replay re. Tolos saltimboca, the little spudette has been a bit of a handful this week - perhaps she's suffering the post-holiday blues.

Anyway - the dish is tender chicken rolled in light breadcrumbs with a cheese and mushroom filling and sauce. It's always been high on my holiday hitlist.

Hope you have a good trip,

Spudbag
