Rest. Reina Sofía

Miguel Castilla’s Restaurante Reina Sofía in Almuñécar is known for the inventiveness of its cuisine. One of the dishes that most surprised us on the numerous occasions that somebody from the Seaside Gazette team has eaten there is the Gambas a la Cora. Try it yourself, but be prepared to defend our plate, grimly, from other diners!

Miguel always takes the time to come and and chat with his diners, which together with the excellent waiter service and top-class dishes, are the hallmarks of Restaurante Reina Sofía.

The restaurant, which is situated on the paseo from which it takes its name, is always organising special events with top chefs from the region, collaborating with charities, and organsing seasonal tasting menus.

You can sit inside with the cool dining room, where you can contemplate a immense aerial photograph of Almuñécar from 50 years back, covering an entire wall, or you can sit outside on a small but pleasant terrace, which is only 20 metres from the sea, so the view is splendid.

Chef, Miguel Castilla, proprietor of Almuñécar’s Restaurante Reina Sofía, also owns and runs a tapas bar in front of Hotel Almijarra in Edificio Bahía Jardín, with the name Sacacorchos (Corkscrew) in la Herradura.

When a top chef decides to open a tapa bar, then you can expect something different, both in quality and imagination. Expect, special beers, a good selection of wines, excellent tapas, rations and roscas to the gastronommic level of Restaurante Reina Sofía. They also have a shaded terrace, como diós manda.
