La Rotonda: "Just behind El Mercado" Alicante Restaurant Tip by Mette-DK

Alicante Restaurants: 73 reviews and 114 photos


This is a frequent meeting place that we have with friends, and is great to go to after doing some shopping in el mercado. The yellow chairs are La Rotunda, and is better than the blue side. Faces the three outdoor flower shops. Just a great feeling to sit and meet with friends or alone and watch people. Very reasonably priced. 4.20 friendly.

Favorite Dish: Merlucitos: fried hunks of Merluza, the fried artichokes are delicious, I also order a half tomato-jamon york-queso manchego sandwich. And.......beers! Coffee is great too.
