TORREVIEJA will be staging the region’s first tapas festival in a year over the next two weekends.
The sixth “Let’s Go For Tapas” event sees 23 bars and restaurants involved, all serving four tapas and two drinks for only 10 euros.
Tapas lovers will also be able to participate in a raffle with a number of great prizes.
Spread over two long weekends, the festival kicks off on Thursday, April 15, until Sunday.
It then continues from the following Thursday, April 22, until Sunday, April 25.
Torrevieja’s Councillor for Commerce and Hospitality, Rosario Martínez, presented the list of establishments involved, along with Joaquín Guillamó, the president of the Association of Hospitality Companies.
Despite nearly two dozen bars and restaurants being involved, Covid regulations will be upheld at all sites, with a new ordering protocol helping avoid crowding.
As in previous tapas festivals, diners will taste the fayre and vote in a ballot, with prizes including smart-phones, cases of wines and €50 tasting dinners.
Martínez admitted, “The association, and the establishments, are being very brave in launching this initiative, and I want to invite everyone to enjoy our excellent gastronomy.”

The Olive Press spoke with Anne Muldoon, who tries to attend as many tapas events as possible in the region.
Although she is stuck back in Consett, County Durham, she’d love to come, admitting, “It is one of our favourite things to do as a family in Spain.
“It’s so enjoyable as you get to try so many different tastes if Spain at a reasonable cost, it’s a great way to try out new restaurants and developing a love for new favourites,” she said.
