Telephone number - 966 922 779
Comments - "If you're looking for any good places to eat in La Mata, this is it.
The food in Zana Kebab is absolutely delicious!!
The typical dish of La Mata is the caldero, in which the ingredients are basically fish, in its different variations, and rice with the consommé from the fish. Other typical seafood dishes are cod stew, sea bream, mackerel, ray, mojama, roe, tunny and shark.
The food in Spain is extremely healthy, with plenty of fresh fish and seafood, combined with fresh produce from local markets - and all tastes are catered for.
In La Mata and nearby areas, you'll find every kind of restaurant you could wish for, ranging from a mouthwatering variety of restaurants of all kinds. Along with the local fresh fish and seafood restaurants and typical Spanish cuisine of the region you'll also find a wealth of international restaurants - Italian, French, Mexican, English, Thai, German, Chinese, Indian . . . . . to name but a few !
When contacting anyone that you see on this website, please mention that you saw them on www.LaMataInformation.com
Lunch time in Spain is not before 2pm and dinner is usually at about 10pm, but restaurants in tourist resorts have adjusted their timetable for people wishing to eat earlier. Grading - Restaurants are graded into four classes but this is often done according to the décor and the number of dishes and prices of the tourist menu available rather than the quality of the food and service.
Snacks - for light meals, many bars in La Mata serve a selection of tapas which are small dishes of tasty snacks eaten with a drink. They can be served in three sizes: pinchos, tapas and raciones, (raciones is the largest).
Vegetarian - most Spanish restaurants in La Mata cater for vegetarians, you'll usually find a tortilla, salad or vegetable tapas.
Payment/Tips - prices may not always include tax and it's usual to pay 5% in tips if the service and food has been good enough and nothing if it hasn't !
The wines of the region - the wines from the east coast of Spain have the following labels of quality: Alicante, Valencia, Jumilla, Utiel-Requena and Yecla, which cover quite different wines. Those from Alicante are reds and rosés with a high alcohol content of between 12 and 16%. Those from Valencia are usually white, dry and very fresh. The Jumilla wines (Murcia area) are easy to distinguish because they are aged in oak barrels. In both cases the alcohol content is very high, and they are dark red and thick. Yacla has reds and rosés with between 13 and 15% alcohol and a very pleasant mild taste. Try Vino Verano!! It's excellent!
