Cuisine: International Seafood
Puerto Portals is one of those “high end” marina developments that seem to populate certain areas of Europe.
I quote the “high end” because I’ve seen way swankier. This isn’t Super exclusive boutique territory.
Flanigan is a large restaurant with an international manu. Prices are high because of the location. But it was close to the hotel and had pretty decent reviews.
Two kinds of olive tapenade.
A light but very pleasant rose. We actually tried this at the vineyard the previous week.
Fruit cocktail in a glass.
Hake bites. What’s not to like about fried fish?
Fish soup. This is the rich shellfish stock fish soup, but this one had so much seafood in it it was like a bouillabaisse in that regard.
Very rich, but really quite excellent!
Their “star dish”, Lobster “pelao” potatoes and eggs. Basically shelled lobster on top of scalloped potatoes with a fried egg in there. Pretty excellent actually.
Apple with vanilla ice cream. More of a very thin tart tartine actually.
Flanigan isn’t anything avant garde, and it is most definitely overpriced for Spain, but it turned out to be very good food — and huge portions too. All in all a very nice meal.
