Restaurants in Villaricos
The best located restaurant in the village is La Esperanza, overlooking the harbour and with surreal views down the coast to Mojacar, it has a great terrace and inside it is light and airy. There is an extensive menu of really good meat and fish dishes. Playa Azul, owned and run by a local fishing family, also offers a wide choice of quality Spanish food, including many tasty local dishes. Don Tadeo’s is excellent, specialising in fish, for which it is justly famous throughout the region. There are several other restaurants to choose from some specialising in paellas, others providing English food for the less adventurous.
Cafes, Bars, & Late Night Spots
The choice is extensive, catering for most tastes. It includes the charming La Balsica, with super tapas, down by the tiny fishing harbour of the same name, the ice cream shop in the village centre, El Galeon, the morning coffee shop of choice, El Gato, favourite of local Spanish and best Sunday Market coffee meeting place, La Plaza Sports Bar, with internet booths for those who must keep in touch, etc.
Late night spots are definitely “village” in style and include late night bars at Casa Verde, a romantic and enchanting spot to sit out of a warm evening by the church, Tadeos, more of a drinkers bar and Los Vampiros, the village kids disco. More sophisticated late night entertainment for the “yuf” is found at El Porton, in the hinterland behind the village and for grown ups at Garrucha and Mojacar, along the coast.
