TripAdvisor members’ club restaurant May 07, 2017
N40°25.047' W3°42.631' Like to eat among TripAdvisor members without local people? This is the place to experience the unique TripAdvisor members’ club restaurant atmosphere, made possible by reserving a table online with the help of TripAdvisor. Geared towards international guests, this restaurant has the menu available in every foreign language and the waiter knows her languages. The menu itself mixes starters and main courses and needs explanation, but you are shielded from the awkward feeling of going local. In line with foreign restaurant policy, you are asked beforehand for any allergies. Very save dining in a nicely decorated small and not so busy restaurant.

This two sister restaurant - the second is in the kitchen - offers Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine. We ordered in April 2017 “Chumarro" (lightly braised pork loin) with caramelised onions (€18) and cod (€18). Regarding the presentation of the cod, tomato sauce covering the large piece of cod is always suspicious. Why should any chef conceal the most important ingredient? The cod itself did not excite the taste buds. Well prepared without fine taste. The same for the Chumarro, presented with a small portion of grilled onions. Without asking additional onions were offered. Good anticipation from the sisters, but it did not improve the absent of fine taste.

The wine was a David Moreno, Rioja 2012, selected by the restaurant (€17). It tasted good but not a wine to be remembered. For dessert, we ordered crunchy chocolate and raspberry cake (€7). Very nice chocolate smell. The best dish of the whole diner and the second sister left the kitchen to receive our compliments for her cake.

For newbies in international travel, Algarabia Restaurante shields you from going native with hard to decode menus and hand signalling with waiters. In addition, you have the opportunity to exchange you travel experiences with other TripAdvisor members. On the other hand, Algarabia Restaurante shield you from the finer Spanish cuisine, any inside into Spanish dining habits and an unforgettable local dining experience.
