Rik & Ainhoa's Favorite Restaurants
Star of India is one -if not the best- Indian restaurant in the region. We recommend the channa puree with plain naan, Chicken Tika Masala and a Jalfresi if you like the spicy side of food! The staff is very friendly and the restaurant has a lot of regulars who visit often (including us!)

A fantastic modern Italian/fusion restaurant with stunning food. We highly recommend any of their pizza, their scallop Indian Curry is fenominal (especially combing with their bread) and the tuna tataki is to die for. Make sure you order the lemon cake/mouse and chocolate mouse as desert. You won't be disappointed!

Beautiful restaurant with modern take on classic Spanish tapas. A bit harder to reach without a car though.
Barrazero Bistro

Very nice restaurant at about a half hour walk along the beach. Has great tapas, with classics like patatas bravas and delicious Croquettes de Jamon. Be sure to try the 'Benajenas con Miel' (fried aubergine with honey) and don't forget to enjoy a nice glass of wine!

What is a holiday in Spain without spending some time at a 'xiringuito' beachbar. Ton-Tin is by far the best one and is conveniently only 10 minutes walking from the house. They have great cocktails and during the summer holidays have live music every Friday, Saturday and Sundays until well after sunset. A great place for couples and families alike to come and enjoy the 'Spanish life'

🍣🍣 fan? This is the place to visit, located in San Juan Kimoshi has been a favorite of Ainhoa and Rik ever since they opened. The quality of food is amazing and the staff very friendly. You have to try the Usu Sukuri, Maguro en Salsa, and any of the rolls. You won't be disappointed!

Fellas listen up, if you want to treat your girlfriend or wife to one of the best dining experiences they've ever had, you have to take them to La Ereta. A Michelin star restaurant (at about 79 euros per person) with a set menu, it is half way up the castle of Santa Barbara and is the place for a fantastic dinner. Make sure you reserve a table on the terrace for the best experience!

Sightseeing
Fancy going out and explore the region a bit? Guadalest is a great place to go and visit. A beautiful little Castle on top of the steepest smallest rock you have seen. Right above a beautiful very blue lake it has great views as well. Guadalest is only reachable by car.

A great place to visit in combination with Guadalest. The waterfalls are beautiful and it is pretty accessible with stairs and rails. You do have to pay to enter, so we recommend you check online first to make sure the waterfalls are not too 'dry' in the season.

A classic to tick off the list when visiting. The foundation that created the city of Alicante is Castle Santa Barbara with a rich history and great views. We recommend going up late afternoon before sunset with the elevator that takes you from the bottom to the top, then there is a nice walk with-in the castle walls followed by a short climb to stunning views overlooking the city, harbour, Mediterranean Sea and the mountains. If you time it right you'll have a beautiful sunset behind the mountains and we recommend you walk down back into the center of Alicante over the castle wall. This is a super fun way to get back into the city and gets you hungry for a nice dinner in town!
