Expert review of La Taberna del Gourmet
Voted Spain’s best bar in 2009, La Taberna del Gourmet has maintained its position as one of the leading lights of the very illuminated gastronomy scene in Alicante. Set on two dining levels, this minimalist restaurant is also a delicatessen, with a sumptuous selection of wines and foods to take away – but it is as a wine bar and taverna that it’s most popular. The bright, open ambience lets you see your food being prepared.
The menu is eclectic and innovative, with a choice of over seventy tapas and one hundred wines, although only about six are available by the glass. There is a tapas tasting menu, unfortunately only available for two people, but you could always try the inventive tostadas, such as foie gras with roasted vegetables and chives, or a main dish of for example, fisherman’s stew or piementos de Padron (small hot green peppers) with potatoes and thin slices of Jabugo ham, as well as individual tapas and full meals.
Modern, lively and chatty, bordering on the noisy at the busiest times.
Young, enthusiastic and – usually – pretty quick.
The street running parallel with the prom, near the port.
Can eat without breaking the bank if you avoid the sea food.
