“Great city centre Menu del Dia”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

After a relaxing morning in the arabic baths (Aire de Almeria), we were able to wander across the Plaza Vieja and into the very welcoming LA ENCINA.

For just €12, it included bread, salad and a drink plus choice of

STARTERS
Migas, Russian Salad or Fideos en Cazuela (a hearty pasta and fish stew)

MAINS
Boquerones, Fried cod, Cod Balls, Fried Gallo Pedro, Croquetas, Chorizo, Pork loin, Pork Secreto, Beef or my favourite was the Bream

PUDDING
Fresh strawberries or the best Spanish rice pudding that any of us had tasted

The staff were friendly and the narrow restaurant had a charming atmosphere.

“Great bargain”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Two of us just finished an enormous lunch at La Encina from the menu del dia--a fresh salad for both, paella for me, mushrooms and eggs for my wife, a large serving of veal and French fries for both, a wonderful almond, chocolate flan for both and two glasses of red wine--all for 24 euros. Everything was excellent, our favorite Spanish restaurant so far.

“Make an effort to find it”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

It's next to the old square (Plaza Vieja) at the top of the city. An easy walk from the centre of town. Seriously good food in the restaurant and it has a little tapas area at the front, which is also very good. It's worth making an effort
