Alicante: Food and Drink
Capital of the Costa Blanca
Many restaurants in Alicante are concentrated in the town centre, with dozens being nearby the ayuntamiento (town hall), particularly along the Calle Miquel Saler. Around Alicante's Old Quarter area (El Barrio / Barrio Santa Cruz), close to the cathedral and Plaza del Carmen, a number of restaurants offer fine dining with lots of character. Seafood and fish are excellent and the local dish is paella. Alicante’s wines are also renowned, so both are worth a try whilst eating out in the city.
