Apologies for not publish much here recently. Last week Jacqui and I were visiting family and playing a bit of golf in the UK. So I did not have time to publish stuff.
At the weekend we made a repeat visit to Hotel Zerbinetta in Dilar (near Granada). The photos above were taken from the garden and terrace of this rustic hotel.
Here is the story of our first visit there in 2015 (with a lot more detail of stuff). Since then Jacqui, myself and our friends Alan and Sharon have visited the same hotel and area on a number of occasions.
This time we had a 1 night stay in the hotel. With a lovely a la carte dinner in the hotel restaurant. Including among other things some local produced black pudding, Plus a meat platter for two that was very good (with a side portion of chips added).
In the morning we had a light breakfast and a wander around the area close to the hotel.
After checking out we then went to the La Tasca restaurant in Nigüelas for lunch. Again we had another lovely meal. The chicken souvlaka was great. As was the shared grilled vegetable starter. Also, Alan said that the pizza he had was the best he has ever eaten.
Be warned that La Tasca gets busy at the weekend. So it is worth booking in advance. Also it is best to park in one of the two parking areas on the outskirts of the the town. Then walk up to the restaurant from there. As the streets in the village of Nigüelas are very steep and narrow.
I can really recommend a trip to both this hotel and restaurant. The area is less than 2 hours away by ca from Almerimar. With dual carriageway all the way until the turn off for Dilar
The hotel is on a hill at the top end of the town. There is a route through the countryside that you can use to avoid driving through the centre of Dilar. However the drive through the town is an interesting experience.
