|El Sombrero Loco||Av. de Filipinas, 3, Benidorm, Spain|
The Sombrero Loco is one of a few Mexican restaurants in Benidorm and they've themed it well. The food is standard Mexican and the kids will love it because they could get a free hat made of newspaper! I hate this sort of thing - but I'm probably the exception. Could make a nice change.
|Hawaii Sushi Bar||Carrer del Secretario Juan Antonio Baldovi, Benidorm, Spain|
Not long open, the Hawaii Sushi bar makes passable Sushi. I liked it but my neighbours said they didn't really. Actually it isn't that expensive so if you are staying near the Gran Bali hotel give it a go if you feel like a change.
|Japones Umai||Avenida del Mediterráneo, 13, Benidorm, Spain|
You might miss the Japones Umai as it is within the Belroy Hotel Building. Bright, modern and very tasty sushi and Japanese food. A nice difference and very good quality.
|Jindeeka||Calle Gerona, 3, Benidorm, Spain|
I think a Thai restaurant like the Jindeeka will do well in Benidorm as there aren't many about so good luck to the new owners of this new restaurant. Looking in the other day and speaking to diners - all good! Try it.
|Oku Sushi Teppanyaki||Calle Esperanto, 7, Benidorm, Spain|
Not many Japanese Sushi Bars in Benidorm so the Oku seems to have a difference given there are nearly 1000 restaurants in Benidorm! The sushi compared to UK prices is very reasonable and their 'buffet' style service means you can eat as much as you want (actually there are limitations but how much raw fish do you want?). Think they top up their income on quite expensive drinks.
|Philippopolis||Calle de Tomás Ortuño, 85, Benidorm, Spain|
You can't miss the Philippopolis restaurant on the Calle Tomas Ortuno as it has unmistakable greek signage and blue and white colour scheme. Good Greek food and a nice change.
|Sherpa||Carrer Sant Roc, 11, Benidorm, Spain|
I think the Sherpa is a fairly new Thai restaurant showing the growing popularity and demand for this style of food. Probably too early to tell how good it is but maybe worth a try.
|Solotula||Calle Esperanto, 20, Benidorm, Spain|
Modern, stylish and very well presented, Solotuda is what you would call a 'fusion' restaurant. Imaginative and interesting dishes mixed with Mediterranean, this restaurant is a real hit with the Spanish and I only hope British people start to discover it soon. Above average price but a very above average restaurant. Nice wines too.
|TaloTako||Calle Santo Domingo, 8, Benidorm, Spain|
The Talo Tako is a sign of changing times in Tapas area of Benidorm, Tapas Alley, where they've fused Mexican and Spanish Tapas. Mixed reviews but early days yet. Let's see if this bright and cheerful addition to Benidorm thrives.
