Between clay-coloured mountains and a turquoise-blue sea we’ll find Calpe, probably one of the most popular holiday destinations of the Costa Blanca. The old town is located on a 50m high hill, which ensures a breathtaking panorama view of really every spot. The landmark of the city is the Peñón d’Ifach, a rock that gracefully protrudes into the sea and that watches over Calpe. But, the best thing about this town on the Costa Blanca is the gastronomy: typical Spanish breakfasts, for several snacks in between, at noon a 3-course and tapas in the evening, laughter and balmy summer evenings. We have selected the 5 best family restaurants in Calpe, which are a great to visit with children!
Best family restaurants in Calpe
Do you love to go out and have dinner but you are always worried that your kids aren’t going lo like it and you have to leave early, like always? Well, go spend the best holidays with kids by visiting these family restaurants in Calpe.
Patio de la Fuente
Calle dos de Mayo 10
+34 965 83 16 95
In the middle of the romantic old town, hidden in the winding streets, you’ll find the Patio de la Fuente. The rustic cottage makes traditional dishes and has a scarce furniture that gives you suspicion, but it turns out differently. The white furnishings, the low ceilings and a touch of country house style are to blame for the cosy atmosphere. If you expect traditional fare and traditional tapas, you will not get it here, but something better: salad bouquet with vegetables of the season, fish variations and home-made dressings, steaks in every imaginable preparation and exquisite dishes such as duck or salmon. The gourmets among us will love this place.
Urb. Mary Villa 28
+34 965 83 20 16
Dinner at Restaurant Oscar is probably the Wow experience of your vacation! Since 1976, it is one of the best family restaurants in Calpe, more precisely located in the small district Maryvilla in the mountains, spoils you with delicious dishes; grilled vegetables, fish and meat and of course several variations of the famous paella. You pay about 17€ for a main course and 25€ for the grill menu or gourmet menu, not exactly the cheapest address, but definitely the tastiest. The very special highlight, especially for the children, there is a pool on the huge terrace of the restaurant, which is free for guests. We recommend that you make a reservation in advance!
Partida Maryvilla 73
+34 965 83 49 59
Only a few metres away, a little way up the hill you’ll reach the Restaurant Maryvilla, which took its name from the district. The romantic cottage looks like a villa that has always been in this landscape, surrounded by palm trees. They have a German and Italian cuisine! From North German fish recipes, Pasta variations to hearty meat dishes. Not necessarily what you expect from a holiday in Spain, but let’s be honest, we love international cuisine. And the atmosphere in the huge garden, in the midst of the hills overlooking the expanse of the sea, is unbeatable anyway.
Steakhouse & Pizzeria „El Santo“
Calle Torreones 3
+34 965 83 20 34
Traditional, rustic and, above all, original is hardly possible! The El Santo, in the narrow streets of the old town, is not so easy to find, but worth the search. In a place that seems calm and modest during the daytime, the joy of living and socialising take over the evening. Tables in the middle of the streets, musical entertainment and hospitality really convince every critic. They prepare delicious pizzas and steaks from the charcoal grill, the heart of the family restaurant in Calpe. Visiting this place is a feeling that you have to experience yourself…
