“Nice little restaurant bar on the main road Albolote”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We went to this restaurant after the recommendations on trip advisor but were a little disappointed, they served tapas with each alcoholic drink but didn't have a tapas menu. The small plates were very large and somewhat touristy. Have eaten at better places.

“Well priced restaurant with a good selection of Spanish food”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

We own an apartment near Albolote, at Medina Elvira, and travel there 2 or 3 times a year. We invariably have at least one meal in Las Peñas, sometimes more than one as it is handy for us being just a few minutes drive from the apartment.

Las Peñas is a typical Spanish restaurant with its clientele mostly from the local area, and although tourists are fairly rare in Albolote they do have a menu in English. They serve a free tapa if you order a drink (like most bars in this area) and the meals are good size portions and good value for money with pork, chicken and fish being our usual choice. Try the mixed salad which is certainly mixed and includes fruit - but very tasty.

There are some tables outside on the pavement in the usual Spanish style, open air in the summer with an awning out during the day and protected by clear plastic sides in the spring/autumn. There's a bar inside which usually is busy with locals and also a dining room at the back which we have used in winter.

The local drink around here is Tinto de Verano - red wine of summer - which is a mix of red wine and either casera (like lemonade) or limon (cloudy), with ice. It's very nice and you will be asked if you want 'blanco' (the casera) or 'limon'. However if you ask for tinto de la casa, which we usually ask for if we want the house wine, they will ask if you want it 'solo' or 'casero' and you could end up with a bottle of red straight from the fridge! We usually get there in the end and manage to get some that hasn't been chilled but probably better to ask for vino tinto (red wine).

The service is OK, sometimes quicker than others, but we've always left full and satisfied without too much strain on the wallet.
