Costa Blanca holidays are all about sun, sand and stunning Spanish food. Nestled along the Mediterranean coast between Valencia and Alicante, Moraira is a sleepy town that remains one of Costa Blanca‘s last unspoiled beach destinations. Despite this, the population still swells during the summer months from 9,000 to 30,000, and the rest of the year it plays host to many European and international ex-pats, including a large number of retirees.
French delights at Le Dauphin
The food on offer at Le Dauphin is quite simply out of this world – how it hasn’t got a Michelin star yet is anyone’s guess. An exciting menu is complemented by exceptional value for money considering the quality of the fare on offer, while the staff and service are professional, efficient and welcoming. Even after all that, you still haven’t heard the best part – this ideally situated restaurant offers the most spectacular sea view you’re likely to see on holidays to Costa Blanca.
Modern European at Le Soleil
The elegant interior, muted decor and beautiful terrace make this a fantastic location to spend a luxuriously long meal. It’s a great spot to watch the stream of passers-by in the nearby plaza, set against the backdrop of the tranquil Mediterranean Sea. The sophisticated presentation of the fare makes it look almost too good to eat – but once you tuck in, you certainly won’t regret your decision. One of the premier upmarket restaurants in Moraira at an affordable price.
Seafood at Restaurante Ca Pepe
Located at a short distance from the town centre, this lovely family-run restaurant rewards those who make the journey to its door with a relaxed atmosphere, excellent service and smart, stylish décor. And best of all? The food, of course!

International grub at Rondo

From Thai curries to Chinese bang bang chicken and Italian tagliatelle, Rondo’s has it all. A warm welcome on arrival and attentive, friendly service throughout make this a dining experience to remember. Open from early spring until October.
A taste of Switzerland at Taberna Suiza
This Swiss restaurant owned by Ronnie and his wife Linda has been going strong for decades and still never fails to disappoint. Though the emphasis is on Germanic cuisine, Linda’s cooking does incorporate a variety of international dishes and styles seamlessly, making it a great place to try something new. Due to its excellent quality, it’s a popular choice with locals and tourists alike, so expect a boisterous atmosphere more often than not.
Asian food at The Kathmandu Indian and Nepali Restaurant
Serving a wide range of curries and dishes to suit all tastes, the staff at Kathmandu bend over backwards to accommodate personal preferences as best they can. The dedicated team personify professionalism and effort, greeting customers warmly and attending to their every need even when the place is fit to burst – which it often is, due to its local fame.
