Bar
“This is my fave restaurant is Alcossebre. Set on the mountain with stunning food and views. Well worth the 10-15 minute drive. We have also booked a taxi to get there from Cheers in the marina, think it was 15 euros each way which is ok for 4 people if you do wish to go in the evening for a few wines. I adore the king prawns and champagne sangria. Lovely for lunch and dinner.”
