Albir has some of the best restaurants in the Costa Blanca, with a wide price range and featuring cuisines from all over the world. We have recommended three of the best Spanish restaurants, along with our best recommendations for other types of cuisine, based on personal recommendations from We❤Albir members, the ranking on Trip Advisor and our own personal experiences.
This friendly local restaurant has become very popular since the current management took over, it now regularly appears at the top of all the polls (it is number 1 out of 121 restaurants on Trip Advisor January 2019 with 94% ranking it as excellent). We can see why, it is affordable home cooked food, with a pan European menu that should suit all tastes and price ranges. Specialities include the lamb shank, Fresh Lasagne, and solomillo cooked to taste with sauces. view on map
This is one of the most popular tapas bars in Albir, situated right on the front line, with great sea views and friendly international staff.
They offer a wide range of tapas, including Patatas bravas, grilled sardines, fresh mussels al vapour, Russian salad, chorizo sausages in brandy, meatballs in a rich tomato sauce and mushrooms stuffed with blue cheese and garlic. Alternatively, try a tapas combo, a small selection of each tapa. We hope your enjoy this seafront tapas bar as much as we do. View on map

This is a great restaurant for lovers of good food, the chef Fienus Kramers never knows beforehand what will be on the next day´s menu. He chooses the freshest ingredients and creatively plays with dishes to produce tasty and enjoyable food. Book to make sure that you can find a table, and tell them of any particular dislikes or allergies because there isn’t usually a menu. We don’t think you will be disappointed. view on map

Well run by a friendly Nepalese family, this popular restaurant offers Indian and Nepalese cooking at its best. The food is always consistently good and very reasonably priced; our recommendation is the Lamb Madras, which is excellent! Easy to find at the top the dry river bed, just opposite Albir Playa Hotel. Reasonable prices and wonderful authentic South East Asian cooking at its best, you won´t regret it here. view on map
