Well I decided to try my luck on my first night in the resort. I found this little Italian themed restaurant nestled in what I'd presume to be the seedier end of the resort. I say seedy since some of its closer neighbours appear to be strip clubs and an adults only slot machines arcade. Still.. It was my first night and I was hungry. I arrived at 7:30pm as they were opening (seems standard in Spain) and fancied something hearty. I was shown the specials and I quickly chose the steak in pepper sauce with butter-fried potatoes and ratatouille. It was STUNNING. Best word for it. Dessert was a master class too... A white chocolate cheesecake topped with fresh strawberries, whipped fresh cream and a thick strawberry sauce drizzled over it. All very nicely presented too.
Coffee is lavazza so was never going to disappoint. The beer was ice cold and the reception given was extremely warm.
One advisory... You WILL be approached on many occasions during your stay in Roquetas de Mar by beggars and tramps or roving salesmen with glasses and watches. They will drag up a chair and expect your money. Be hard and say no.
