Alingui Restaurante


Menu Del Dia options in Torrevieja are almost countless. We often will spend our morning dog walks strolling around town and looking at the daily offers on the sand-which boards to make a decision about where to spend our afternoon that day.

There are a few restaurants in town however that keep the same menu everyday. Sometimes that works well for us because if there is a certain dish you are craving you will know that you can have it. You may also feel confident that since you have been there before the food and the service should be consistent and Alingui is one of those places.

Alingui caters to the visitor as well as the locals. We have eaten here a number of times and the value is quite good, 3 courses for $8.90 euro. Unlike many other restaurants though this does not include the usual half bottle of wine per person so it can be a bit more expensive then a small Spanish restaurant just a few blocks away. But location is another factor. The restaurant sits on the promenade just across from the visitor center and I am pretty sure there is always sunshine which attracts the holiday crowd in search of warmth and sun. It is also near the marina making it a convenient lunch spot for those coming in from a morning sail.

We had just recently gotten out of Quarantine and it was a beautiful sunny day so we started our meal with a caña or small beer. And this was a nice surprise. Often times the restaurants on the promenade do not offer a free tapa with a drink purchase but here they did, two chicken wings. Bisque Kitt as you can see is very happy to be out in the sun with his people.

We made our menu selections and out came the warm bread. Something I have been enjoying recently is the whipped garlic butter. It is the little things that make all the difference, right?

It is a bit unusual for us but we actually ordered the same starter dish. It sounded delicious and it was very good, the Vol au Vent, a puff pastry basket filled with cream of lobster and prawns.

It was time for the main course. Terri-Lynn had the pork tenderloin with mustard sauce and fries and I had the pork belly ribs with BBQ sauce and fries. They were both very good. As you can see this is a very casual restaurant but the food is always consistently good.

And of course the final course, dessert. It was so amazing to be out and dining. I think everyone will have a new appreciation for the simple things after this. Fresh air, sun and just walking with your family and friends.

About XPLORE FILM and Sip & Stay

The Art of Life

Tony and Terri-Lynn met in 1987 as teenagers. In 1991 they were married.  Tony has been a professional musician his entire life and spent the 90’s touring and releasing albums.  In 2001 the couple left the cities and moved to a small community on the Oregon coast. This is where they fell into television production and film making. In 2004 Makai Ohana Productions was founded and the couple produced advertising and creative content for hundreds of tourism related businesses and government entities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Realizing the industry was evolving towards the internet they re-branded the business in 2012 to Xplore Film.  This company would now be an international business producing films world wide as well as an NGO in West Africa where the couple provides clean water boreholes, scholarships and even a prosthetic hand project.

In 2018 Tony and Terri-Lynn with their dog Bisque Kitt packed the belongings they could carry on their backs and flew to Spain. They bought a home and planned to spend equal time between the two countries running the business.  Then Covid hit and the world closed.  By 2020 they realized Spain, and specifically Torrevieja was now home.  They bought a sailboat and started to create a life on the Costa Blanca of music, film, events and community.
