The richness and variety of the Benidorm cuisine has been achieved thanks to the influences from  our ancestors and other civilizations that  have inspired the local recipes.

So, international cuisine, culinary traditions inherited from the Arabs, the legacy of the marine merchants, not to mention the typical cuisine of the fishermen and from the interior of the region offer an extraordinary list of specialties.

The red mullet and pumpkin rice, traditional fish casserole, rice with anchovies and spinach, or the “pebrot” are some of its typical dishes, whilst for something sweet, filled pastries  coca, the sweet potato cakes and the San Blas cake.
