If you live in or regularly visit Salobreña, you will have noticed the addition to Chiringuito La Bahía, with its glass walls and open kitchen.
It’s a gourmet kitchen specialising in pastas, pizzas and carne a la brasa (hence the sign, brasería). The service is rapid and the starters are very stylish.
The original chiringuito side continues with the fish dishes served both outside and inside whilst the new part produces succulent burgers, steaks and other grilled meat dishes, so you have the have the choice of two specialised areas side-by-side; one in meats a la brasa and the other, fish dishes.
If you had to find a word to describe the presentation of their dishes, it can only be ‘elegant.’
When we say burgers, we mean ones so large that they are a meal in themselves. The pasta used is homemade and the combinations (Carbonara, Bolognese, pesto, etc) are many and very tasty.
La Bahía also offers vegetarian and gluten-free dishes
If you just fancy sitting at the bar in the evening enjoy the view outside, whilst sampling any one of many cocktails on offer, then this is your place, too.
Apart from the scrummy desserts the only thing left to mention is that they have their own parking behind the premises, which is a god send when parking on the beach road becomes scarce.
