Where to Eat

In Spain, there is everything from cheap and cheerful bars to plush, expensive restaurants.
Unless you head to a posh restaurant, eating out isn’t usually expensive.

In a Spanish owned bar – tapas are usually about €2 each for a reasonable portion.
However, English owned bars do tend to be more expensive, as are those in the 525 Plaza and “the strip”.

There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the 525 plaza and strip – also a few in the Oasis area – and dotted round the old town.

These are our favourite restaurants in and around Los Alcázares (or LA as it is known to the locals).
Although we have a great the kitchen in the apartment, who wants to cook when on holiday?
You have to sample the delights of the local cuisine.
