Gastronomy from here and there
From the red prawns of Denia, the fish of Santa Pola to the loquat of Callosa, these are just some of the raw materials available in the province and in which, together with the characteristic Mediterranean style, the chefs prepare the different dishes in their restaurants, bars, taverns and beach bars to the delight of locals and tourists alike.
Combining the best of Mediterranean food with the tastiest ingredients from the land is the proposal of the international buffet at the Hotel Don Pancho. Rice, meat and fish dishes prepared with care so that you can enjoy Mediterranean gourmet without leaving the hotel. Show cooking, international spaces and a select atmosphere for the intimacy of the couple complete the buffet offer that will delight all those looking to eat in Benidorm and make a gastronomic getaway in an unbeatable way.
What is known and yet to be known
You don’t just come to Benidorm for the beach. Its gastronomic variety is as consistent as it is daring and this has been reflected in the city over the years. From unique but traditional local dishes such as the rice dishes and fish at Bar Mal Pas, Úlia or Punto de Sal, which represent the gastrobenidorm of local and Mediterranean products. Likewise, regulars and residents of the town might recommend pintxos in the Basque area, hamburgers at XOXO or the joy of Mexical. There’s room for everything in Benidorm.
For the gourmets, Benidorm is a place to visit. Its gourmet restaurants, with attention to detail, offer a modern, signature gastronomic experience that is definitely worth a couple’s indulgence. One example is Belvedere, a mixture of regions and flavours adapted to the client, maintaining typical dishes together with chef’s creations that can be eaten with the eyes. Likewise, L’Escaleta, are some of the names in the Michelin firmament of the province, and which demonstrate the perfect relationship between local produce and innovation.
In the province
As important as Benidorm, the province stands as a Mediterranean gastronomic mecca with different proposals and its own stories that communicate directly with the palate.
In this category we can include proposals such as El Xato in La Nucia, in which a village bar ascends to the Michelin firmament in barely a generation. It is also necessary to include in this category proposals such as La Finca de Susi Díaz or El Monastrell de Maria José San Román, which demonstrate the perfect relationship between local produce and innovation. Passion, respect and, above all, lifelong flavours on display in a highly recommendable culinary reality in the province.
Now that you know the best gastronomy of Benidorm and the province, we encourage you to taste all the proposals as a couple and stay with us at Hotel Don Pancho, a proposal that lives up to expectations.
