Bar Alexis in Cueva del Polvo

  • My wife and I had dropped our car off in Cueva del Polvo the other day and wandered around the block  for a bite to eat at Bar Cafeteria Alexis. It turned out to be the wisest move we've made in ages.
     
    Bar Alexis is a grill restaurant where fresh meat and fish are grilled on a charcoal fired barbecue. He does great food at great prices. My wife had simply the best grilled chicken she has ever eaten. Alexis seasons it first and then applies copious amounts of mojo  while he grills it. The result is crispy on the outside, moist on the inside and spicy throughout.. Half a grilled chicken and chips and salad costs ?5.50 and that includes bread and butter.
     
    I had the grilled solomillo de cerdo, a huge juicy pork tenderloin that set me back ?7 with the accompanying chips. salad and bread and butter. It was wonderful.
     
    He also does pork chops, steak ,bistec de cerdo and a variety of fish (tuna, cherne, squid and octopus)  and a bunch of starters  all at good prices. 
     
    It was also nice to find to find a bar with proper bar prices. A bottle of Dorada is ?1.10, Gordon's Gin, Bacardi and other named spirits go for ?1.50 a measure,  and the Canarian house wine is a euro a copa and ?8 euros per litre.
     
    All in all, great food and drink & great value.

  • I've looked for this bar in the past (walked around Cueva del Polvo a couple of times) but not been able to find it.  The flier makes it looks well worth a visit and we live just up the road

    What hours does it open and can you tell me where it is?

  • Turn right when you enter Cueva del Polvo. Go past Bar Berto and  make a left at the second corner after Bar Berto.  Bar Alexis is 10 metres up the road.

  • There will be live Spanish music to dance to this Saturday night. Alexis will have a couple of specials along with his regular menu. Last time he did this, everyone had a great evening.
