Guide of the 27 participating establishments, menus and location map.
1 Benidorm has commenced for the third year in a row, a process to enhance the value of its gastronomy, from the traditional and autochthonous to also the quantity and quality, that we have received from places all over the world . First we would like to highlight the effort made during 2010 and 2011 by the Tourism Department so that “Benidorm Gastronomy” could take shape as a complementary brand of our destination, offering added value to an extensive gastronomic culture, varied and consistent for all budgets, in which its value or money is difficult to equal elsewhere. Today, this “Benidorm Gastronomy” initiates a new episode with the announcement of the Third “Gastronomic Days” to be held from the 4th to June 10th in a important number of restaurants in town, with this activity having received significant support since the first edition from local businesses and professionals from this sector, that I thank once again. Furthermore, it should also be said that the 2012 Benidorm Gastronomy will reach university status by becoming the central theme for which presentation and works will take place during our International Tourism Forum ideas Competition Pedro Zaragoza, something of great importance to strengthen the tourism product that has always been amongst us. The combination during 2012 of the First Days of Soups and Stews dishes, and the competition of Tapas and Snacks, already celebrated with remarkable success, these Third Gastronomic days, along with “Menjars of Terra” in the month of September and the First Conference of Rice Benidorm, which will take place in October, are already major gastronomic calendar dates for the town, which positions our restaurants and our restaurateurs in the important place they deserve within the tourism sector of Benidorm. Therefore, and as before, I encourage you to participate in these events where we are sure you will enjoy a wide range of delicious menus available to the thousands of customers of the events from our select wide range of restaurants, bars and cafes.
