My recent trip to Denia was initially bound for disappointment when I discovered my favourite restaurant was closed for the winter. So it was with low expectations I trudged round the port looking for an alternative.
Imagine my surprise when I found not only a restaurant of equal quality and price, but such impressive service I went two nights running.
Lugano is a traditional Spanish restaurant, specialising in Italian themed cuisine. I ordered on both occasions from the "menu del dia" but was still presented with an impressive range of starters, mains and desserts. A drink, bread, tapas and complimentary shot of nistella, are included in the price (at the time I went was approximately 12€).
The service was excellent, I didn't have to wait to be seated, served, my empty plates removed or the bill, something I cannot say for other restaurants in Denia or Spain in general where a lengthy wait is normal.
The menu was beyond my expectations, and the presence of fresh fruit and vegetables was a pleasant (and much needed) surprise. Everything was cooked to perfection, not a single hint of a microwave anywhere.
Overall, this was the highlight of my evening out, and definitely a new regular haunt for my next visit.
