Almunia is located in a side street, just off Calle de la Paz (Carrer de la Pau) in the city centre.
On entering this restaurant you could well imagine that you were actually in Morocco – the décor is evocative of a Moroccan riad with stone walls, rustic ceiling, mosaic tables set with colourful Moroccan chinaware and the subtle background Moroccan music completed the North African atmosphere. They offer a range of cous-cous and tajine dishes including vegetarian options.
We started with Humus with fresh Torto bread (like Pitta bread) €7.50 to share. For main courses one chose Tajine of Chicken with lemon and olives €9, the other Tajine of Beef with prunes €9.50. Both were served in traditional earthenware tajine dishes. Both tajines were very authentic – the lemons used in the chicken tajine were authentic preserved lemons.
They had a good selection of both Moroccan and Spanish wines, we chose an excellent bottle of Moroccan Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah blend at €16.
We finished with sweet mint tea expertly poured from a height (as is traditional) by the waiter.
Main course dishes for around €9 is very good value!
The service was highly professional and attentive.
