Lloret de Mar Restaurants.

I am often asked by readers of the blog about the best places to eat in Lloret de Mar. Here I will give you a brief guide of what I consider to be not only good food but also good value for money - which is what people are wanting on holiday these days. Menus of the day are always at a set price so are the best value, evening meals are priced individually from the menus.

Starting in Lloret only 2 mins from the church is ''La Fusta'' not only do they have an excellent evening menu, but for just a little more than €8 you can have a menu of the day. All menus of the day at any restaurant comes with choice of 3 courses of food, along with bread and wine, so these are always the best value.
''Can Sabata'' just at the back of town up on the main road near the turn off for Girona is another good restaurant, whether it be for an evening meal or daily menu. Its a very rustic looking place, once inside you would think you were out in the country ... miles from anywhere!
If you like Chinese food the Chinese Buffet on the sea front (opposite end to the castle) is excellent value with an excellent choice of food. Here you can help your self to as much as you can eat from the self service buffet. The cost here is again only about €8 each (day or night)

Over in the Fenals area you have a very good choice of restaurants. In my opinion the best place here is the ''International'' on the sea front, the steaks here are the biggest and the best around. With the outdoor terrace overlooking the sea makes this a very popular place to eat (weather permitting)
Just about 2 yrs ago the ''America Restaurant'' on Av D America in Fenals was totally refurbished and is now one of the most modern looking places in town. Here is a large varied menu with food ranging from burgers, paellas to fillet steaks which they advertise as the best in town ! Owing to the vast menu here it could be a good option for families with children.

Cheap Holidays to Lloret de Mar

Posted by Picasa
The summer season is slowly coming to an end in Loret. The beaches are not as busy now, but there is still plenty of people in town. This time of year though it is mostly pensioners or families with children under school age. The weather is still very good, although the evenings are much cooler now. Rain has been falling in other parts of Spain but so far we seem to have escaped it!
Hotels are doing very good deals just now, so if you are wanting a bargain break while the sun is still shining now is the time to book.
