La Piazza Alicante

Come sit with me in a beautiful square in Alicante. Let’s dine together at a table for two at La Piazza. Look in front of you at the imposing Cathedral de San Nicolas with its huge doors embracing tourists and watch as the Spanish Guitarist tunes his guitar. Listen as he plays. Savour the moment. This is as romantic as it gets.

Nothing is hurried here but the service at La Piazza is gloriously efficient and I’m searching for a word to adequately describe the discretion of the waiting staff. The wine will come and it will be delicious. The servers, all beautiful and youthful with impeccable manners, will treat you like a VIP and the food will be faultless.

If the Chocolate Coulant is still on the menu when you dine there do indulge but do not share, it is perfection.

We stayed at the Melia Alicante which is wonderfully located near the old town and just beside Playa del Postiguet (beach) and the marina.
