“Go on Tuesday if you can”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We were staying in Alicante for one night only and, having had a decent lunch with friends did not really have any intention of eating agin in the evening. Until we stumbled across El Desafio!

It is in one of the narrow streets of the old town of Alicante and, with the profusion of other bars and restaurants you might easily walk right past. We, however, sat down outside just to have a drink. We ordered a beer and a sangria and, when our waitress brought them out, she informed us that on Tuesdays their special offer is drinks and tapas for one euro each. She then left us with a list of tapas on which we could tick our choices.

Thinking that at a euro each these would be only tiny portions, we ordered four. Well, just look at the pictuure! They were normal sized and very tasty tapas. So, for only 6 euros we felt that we had eaten and drank very well.

There are a very limited number of tables outside, but there is also a heater for these chilly evenings. Inside looked very pleasnt as well and the staff were friendly and efficient. I believe that there are different offers on other days of the week.

Certainly, if we are in Alicante we shall go again.
