El Quinto Toro is one of those places that everyone knows in Almeria. Small and narrow with pictures of bullfighting on the walls, it's one of the most famous spots for tapas in the city. The quality of the food is very renowned, so you'll always find plenty of people sitting around the bar. Their fried potatoes - typical of Almeria - are a real specialty, but be careful: they're only cooked at lunchtime, so you can't have them if you go for dinner. They also have meatballs (delicious), octopus, cod, salad and a thousand more things! And, as is the tradition in Almeria, every drink comes with a free tapa. Amazing!
This is a place where you immediately feel good upon entering. The service is very attentive and kind. The food is spectacular. The fried fish (30€) for two people (with enough for three) is delicious.
The calamari is also excellent. I had a barbecued turbot that was perfect. The plate slipped out of the waiter’s hand while he was bringing it to the table and it spilled all over the table. The restaurant had a first-rate response, changing the table cloth and silverware and bringing a newly-cooked dish. The waiter said he was sorry a hundred times. He was very nice and we talked to him afterwards. Young people seem to like the place, as it says on the website.
It’s right by the beach but it’s in the perfect location. The other outdoor terrace by the beach is 100 meters away, so you’ll probably eat at whichever is closest.
I wanted to eat inside the restaurant because of the nice temperature inside, perfect lighting, and good tables. Ah! How could I forget, I had rum with honey that they serve after eating, as a detail of the house.
We were three couples-> the bill was 90€ with white wine included. You have to reserve a table. There’s a kids area too.
Another tapas bar that you must stop by if you are in Roquetas, between 15 and 20 euros for 2 people. We tried corn, prawns, squid, cuttlefish ... Do not miss out, it is a traditional tavern and well decorated!
In the province of Almeria, near Escullos, is a small fishing village called "La Isleta del Moro Arráez". The town is named after a small island located a few meters from the beach, next to a huge rock, which in antiquity was frequented by fierce Arab in search of treasure. The name was derived from the Berber warlord, Mohamed Arráez. The Arabic word "ar-rais" means "skipper" and appeared in the eighteenth century written as "jarraez". Its restaurants are famous for fish, freshly caught by the colorful boats in the area. The beauty of the place, located in the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata-Nijar, is undeniable. Despite the urban explosion of the coast, the village has maintained its appearance and atmosphere as a fishing village. This is the best place to enjoy some of the beautiful views of Los Escullos. Although fishing is now a minority activity, replaced by more tourist-oriented, such as diving and restoration, small white houses and the locals make the traveler feel the peace and rest you are looking for.
This place is the best for delicious and cheap tapas. They have more than 100 varieties of tapas including salads, sandwiches, stuffed baked potatoes, paninis and main meals too. And it's located right on the seafront. The only downside is that it can get busy and sometimes you have to wait.
A place for fish tapas. With each drink you are given a tapa. Great abundance of meats on the menu as well as the fish that is offered. It is a nice site but you have to wait for table and then they take time to serve them (not the bar). Reasonably priced.
My latest discovery. It's close to the CC. Mediterráneo and surrounded by hotels, you will find this tapas bar with rich and excellent mojitos. The interior is designed by Gema Gutierrez and the same person is also responsible for the thermal and grand pere and like in the other two cases the result has been spectacular. Stop by if you stay at the Hotel Elba Husa, Vincci because it is very close.
Next to the Alcazaba, in the center of Almeria, there is Casa Puga. WHich is a typical tapas bar in Almeria. For each beer or wine you order you will get tapas such as tenderloin, grilled cheese, breaded shrimp, conch, etc.. Good price. Highly recommended.
The Mariano Beach bar is a snack bar/hostel that I recommend without hesitation. It has fast and efficient service. It also has good views and some great water sprayers to combat the heat. The best place for this vacation.
We reserved to eat there because we like to know the places that are reputed. The service is terrible, the waiter kept shouting. The owner, Manolo, was able to tell a table of people to get up after they were sit down by the head waiter. The worst was the food, which came as a punishment, rice with lobster at 50 euros for 2. The most tasteless rice I've ever eaten. I can only think that the lobster was worthless because it was like boiled rice with water, garlic and colorante.Como what we thought we ordered dessert, a cake with horrible rum, cream. Total crap to eat, untrained and otherwise bad, an average of 40 euros per person at least.
One of our stops in Mojacar is for the food at Neptune. Its a beach restaurant where you can take advantage of eating fish in Mojacar if you don't want to go to Garrucha where the port is. Always ask for skewered bream or sardines as they are somewhat difficult to get anywhere else and they are yummy. Order a salad, a skewer and enjoy a chilled white wine on the terrace - it is priceless. The service is usually very nice.
This restaurant-bar has a cool atmosphere and is impeccably and tastefully furnished. It offers a variety of drinks and an extensive menu of all types of burgers (kangaroo, ostrich, ....). I would highly recommend this place.
In the Plaza de las Flores de Almeria. You have to go down a level, the food is good quality as is the service. The dining room is well decorated. Before entering the room you can see a well-stocked cellar. Nevertheless for breakfast, we have to go outside and go to another hotel clindante (of the same chain).
Before you go I said it was a new bar, but when I got the image of bar was broken forever. it is located in the popular district of zapillo, where there are plenty of fish bars. Not only is the interior amazing, but also the menu and the inventive tapas on offer, you have to try it out.
