On a chilly spring evening, a 10 Euro taxi ride out of Alicante into the suburbs seemed an odd thing to do - but it was a great decision. The initial signs were good - tables laid with spotless linen, stylish seating. But it's also informal. Families with children (and even, in one case with their bicycles) were welcome. Baeza & Rufete is a neighbourhood restaurant which deserves a big reputation.
The menu is strictly Spanish, but the enthusiastic staff help you out as much as you need. This is imaginative cooking (prawns tucked in brioche discs, garnished with seaweed were described as mini-hamburgers) so be careful with the interpretation, but every single course was a delight. For us, the simplest thing was the best: a plate of four regional cheeses, each with its own different relish.
We drank fine wines by the glass, again taking recommendations from the staff. Just under 100 Euros for two in total, but this is a suburban restaurant which could hold its up in any European city.
