La Mejillonera is one of the typical local joints in Benidorm and it’s easy to find because it’s in the center. If you go shopping or to the beach, you will bump into it.
You can try different dishes on the terrace or inside, among which I’d highlight the mussels. I must say that I usually don’t like Tiger mussels (mussels gratin with béchamel) and that didn’t change here, but the mussels in vinaigrette were simply divine.
The service is nice, fast and helpful and the price is about the average for similar places in Benidorm.
My family and I had very good Valencian-style paella here. For starters, we ordered shellfish and Benidorm-style fried fish, as well as a couple of salads. The desserts are also quite good since a lot of people come here from the beach looking for a treat or some ice cream to cool off.
The kids can run out and play in the sand if they want and you can watch over them perfectly from the terrace of the restaurant.
