Expert review of Restaurante Colonia

Time-honoured Andalusian cuisine with a Mediterranean backdrop.

This restaurant, a few metres form the seashore, could probably carry on for decades on the goodwill of its loyal clientele. But it doesn’t, and what appeals to me is it’s consistently good Spanish home-cooking.

Food and drink: 

The food is simple and the menu consists of dishes that every Spaniard in the south has grown up with: cod pil pil (chilli and garlic marinade), marinated chicken wings, beef fillets, prawns in herbed butter, to name a few. You must leave room for the sweet crepes at the end - a house speciality.

Ambience: 

The tables are quite close together in this subtly-lit restaurant so you’ll quite often be chatting and comparing notes with the people sitting nearby.

Service: 

They pamper you, but for me it’s a bit stifling.

Location: 

It's on the main promenade of Burriana Beach.

Price advice: 

Main courses cost 22 euros on average.
