Have just returned from roquetas and have tried another couple of restaurants . Only discovered La Vita restaurant off the avenida playa serena. The chef and owner Pierre is terrific - the food was very good indeed. I tried lamb and fish which were excellent. It's great to have such a resonably priced french restaurant - just sorry I only discovered it now. We also ate at Wild Coyote - if you're into great steaks - this guy Andrew knows his stuff! We had beautiful ribeye and sirloin steaks cooked to perfection with home made onion rings. Not really a steak lover but I really enjoyed this restaurant.
I love to hear recommendations for restaurants , bars etc - it really gives the place a whole new dimension - regards, saga
I'll give that one a try when I'm back out . We always like to try a couple of new places every time we go, so appreciate any recommendations. My favourite places of all to eat are tapas bars. I love La Gamba de Oro on the avenida mediterraneo and Patio Salao. When we go for a long walk on the paseo we always stop off at Bar Cullar beside the Bahia Serena Hotel. The sun is on the patio there until about 6.30 and you get a lovely tapa with every drink. It's run by Maria and ty who are really friendly - wish I was back there right now!!! - regards, saga

For an evening meal with a difference I can recommend 'La Gruta' which is on the old road from Aguadulce to Almeria just after you pass through the second tunnel at km. 436. You need to be something of a carnivore, though, as their specialities are meat dishes.
The various dining rooms consist of caves cut into the mountainside which is very handy when they decide that they want to expand the dining area as all they need to do is cut out another cave.
As I now live in Málaga haven't been there for several years but it used to be the 'in' place for Spanish professionals from Almería.
If a drive out is not a problem, I also recommend the Bar Almeria in Enix.
Again, only ever done the lunch time, but that was fantastic.....4 of us had menu del dia, beers, bread, olives, more beers and it only cost us €23
Often we go for a drive into the Mountains and stop at some lovely villages, wander around, find a restaurant, go in, sit down, and invariably get a cracking meal at next to no cost compared to the UK or even the resorts!
Looks like I'm going to be busy next time !!! I agree with you Steve - it's great to go for a drive and happen upon some great little restaurant. It helps though if you speak a little spanish. We stopped at Ugijar in the Alpujarras last time and because it was getting late couldn't stay to check out the restaurants. It was absolutely beautiful there. The scenery in Spring is truly magnificent. Hope to go back up there in the summer as there seems to be quite a few places to eat and if we stay too late this time - we can always check in somewhere and see what the nightlife is like!!!! - thanks for all the recommendations guys - regards - saga
my favorite resturant in Roquetas has to be the Meson el Bodegon, its on the avda de las gaviotas, it is a typical Spanish place that has a very wide ranging menu, the pork and rabbit dishes are superb, but my favourites are the seafood ones, they are to die for and lots of it, when we go it comes to about 8 E's per head inc drinks. And if i want a ribeye steak i go to el Rancho, he is the best. _________________ Kev

Two restaurants I particularly like are Flamingo's at the far end of the Avenida on the right hand side as you're walking away from the sea, but only go there when you're very hungry and have a bag with you for leftovers! And Tito's which is as you leave Roquetas driving towards the port on the road the bus takes, it's a couple minutes past the blocks of apartments there not far from Bar Spinnaker, they do a great menu for 11 euro which is three courses, coffee and a drink they're particularly good for seafood.
If you're staying around that end I also recommend Paco's, just along from the Zoraida, Paco himself is lovely, the food's always good and it's very reasonable.

In view of the recent changes at El Bistro, there's probably a good reason no one's mentioned it.
we had a nice meal in Franks on Av Mediterraneo on Wednesday evening. (Franks has moved from opp the Gorilla to the old cafe maron premises) Initially it was spoiled somewhat by being surrounded by smokers. We asked if they had a non smoking section, which they don't, but the waitress did organise a table for us in a separate area. this wouldn't have been possible if the restaurant was full
