  • Bar Los Arcos, Benavista

    Recommended by Monica Van Hoogdalem

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

    Bar/Restaurant with a huge terrace and play area for the kids.
    Tel: 696192026.
    KM167 on the N340 Benavista


    "This is a great find! A bar where adults can enjoy a (not so quiet) drink in the evening and the children are more than happy to leave them in peace! There is a huge outdoor space where invariably there is a ball being kicked around, and in a corner there are swings and other playground equipment. As there is only one entrance you can relax, knowing that the children are contained, yet they are able to enjoy their freedom.
    A good range of snacks is available from the bar and in the summer months there is a hamburger stall selling chips etc at very reasonable prices. It isnt any wonder that this is such a popular venue with locals as well as holiday-makers, catering for adults, young teenagers and children as young as three or four."

And there are some amazing posh seafood places on the beachfront that we like to take overseas guests to" (LP, Jan 2011)

  • Chilimosa, Cadiz

    Recommended by Marit Van Der Weg

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

    Chilimosa - vegetarian tapas and take away food with a great variety of tastes - from lasaña to samosa. All home made and using only natural (and where possible organic) ingredients. Fairly priced (main dishes range from 4,20 to 7,50)
    Calle Peso 6, Tarifa, 11380, Cadiz
    tel: 956 68 50 92

    "Chilimosa is a wonderful little restaurant in the old town of Tarifa. The food is spicy, fresh vegetarian. I love going there as you know the ingredients are selected with care and are perhaps even taken from Sairas own garden. She changes the menu regularly when she has come up with - yet another - delicious new dish!" (MVDW, Sept 2011)
