Had a good dinner in this Benissa restaurant perched high in the hills overlooking the Penon Ifach at Calpe. Booked an outside table and the restaurant advised (sensibly) bringing a sweater as there is still an unseasonal evening chill in the air. Parking outside the restaurant is very limited and most diners have to park on open ground about 50m away up the quite steep road. Reflecting the customer nationalities, the restaurant was already crowded by 7:45pm and service was a little slow. The menu is varied and includes a good number of fish dishes in addition to plentiful meat options.
We couldn't complain about the quality of the food: following adequate starters, there were excellent steaks of pork, lamb and especially a very large rib-eye, all well-seasoned, cooked precisely and served with with French fries + side salad. A main course of monkfish was nice but arrived lukewarm, possibly as a result of waiting in the kitchen for the other main courses to be finished. As others have said, it is hard to find room for dessert, so we just had coffee for which the orders were messed up. Service was otherwise OK and we may return to Pedramala later in the summer.
