The BEST TEN Almuñécar Restaurants...

-- Plus, the Best Coffee and Ice Cream!

Welcome to our guide on the Best Restaurants in Almuñécar... Almuñécar is typically a very Spanish town so you will not find many international restaurants here. The restaurants tend to focus on fresh Mediterranean cuisine, traditionally prepared and with the freshest local ingredients.

During the hot summer months fresh seafood, tropical salads, gazpacho and rice dishes are a focus. As the weather gets cooler you will find more heartier fare such as grilled meats and stews.

  • The photo above shows the delicious dish, "Tataki de Atún" at Restaurante Firmvm in the Almuñécar old town...

1. ALMUÑÉCAR RESTAURANTS - EL ARBOL BLANCO

Almuñécar Restaurants - El Arbol Blanco
El Arbol Blanco €€-€€€
INTERNATIONAL - MEDITERRANEAN - EUROPEAN

El Arbol Blanco has a wonderful atmosphere. It sits just at the end of Playa Velilla right beside the Aquatropic Water Park. It doesn't look like much from the front but once you go inside a beautiful garden is revealed with a large terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The views of the cliffs and beaches in the distance are spectacular.

The food at Arbol Blanco is just as enjoyable. They serve traditional Andalucian cuisine cooked to perfection. One of their star dishes is the roasted leg of lamb that is slow cooked in its own juices and served falling off the bone.

If you are looking for something new in Almuñécar give El Arbol Blanco a try!

SEANFOOD - MEDITERRANEAN - EUROPEAN

La Ultima Ola is a popular restaurant for the locals... so you know it's good! It sits just past the Peñon in front of Playa Puerta del Mar with views of the sea.

Their specialties are seafood, an amazing paella, and grilled meats... and their presentation is flawless.

La Ultima Ola is an upscale restaurant in a relatively laid-back town, their service, attention to detail and the warmness of the staff is a pleasant addition to an already top-notch place.

4. ALMUÑÉCAR RESTAURANTS - HOTEL CASABLANCA

Almuñécar Restaurants - Hotel Casablanca
Hotel Casablanca Restaurant €€-€€€
EUROPEAN - SPANISH

The Hotel Casablanca is a tiny boutique hotel that sits just behind the Peñon and under the San Miguel Castle with a Moroccan theme and design. It's family-run and their restaurant serves simple yet great food!

On a warm night, take a stroll down the San Cristobal paseo and then stop and enjoy a nice meal on the Casablanca terrace. Their Paella is the best but needs to be ordered the day before, or when you make your reservation. It's slow cooked and made to order so can take some time if you don't order ahead.

For a great meal we recommend the "Shellfish & Chicken Paella" with the "Tomato & Avocado Salad".

7. ALMUÑÉCAR RESTAURANTS - MASON FRANCISCO

Almuñécar Restaurants - Meson Francisco
Meson Francisco €€-€€€
INTERNATIONAL - EUROPEAN - MEDITERRANEAN

We chose the Mason Francisco because it is another authentically Spanish restaurant that has been in the old town for years and has a lot of ambiance and charm.

They have a nice patio in front covered by big blue umbrellas, or you can sit inside which has a cozy, bodega like feel to it. Meson Francisco is a great place to stop for a light bite to eat... and a cerveza... after a stroll through the old town.

They have all your typical Spanish favorites, serrano ham, manchego cheese drizzled with olive oil, Gambas pil pil and yummy cold soups like gazpacho or salmorejo.

8. ALMUÑÉCAR RESTAURANTS - EL BALCON COTOBRO

Almuñécar Restaurants - El Balcon de Cotobro
El Balcon de Cotobro €€-€€€
MEDITERRANEAN - EUROPEAN - SPANISH

Our final pick for the "Best Almuñécar Restaurants" is a little out of the way spot called, El Balcon de Cotobro. It sits just across from Playa Cotobro with a small terrace overlooking the beach.

Balcon de Cotobro is a little pricier than others but the high-quality food is well worth the money. It is owned and run by a French woman, you will notice the food tends to have a bit of a French twist and is beautifully presented.

We recommend trying her sampler tapas menu which really showcases her creativity with food. The wines are also lovely.

Almuñécar Restaurants - The Best Coffee

ALMUÑÉCAR RESTAURANTS - CAFE ITALIANO

Almuñécar Restaurants - Cafe Italiano
Cafe Italiano €€-€€€
ITALIAN - CAFE

Among many other things... Spain is known for its wonderful dark, rich coffee... that also comes with a nice kick! Pretty much everywhere you go, you will be happy with the quality of coffee you find. But sometimes, a place goes above and beyond and really knocks it out of the park. Cafe Italiano is one of those places.

Located up a side street in the maze of old town Almuñécar, you will find this VERY unassuming cafe. They have a few other items on their menu, but coffee is where they shine! Try it out!
