  • Does Anybody Have A Los Gigs Secret That They Would Like To Share With The Rest Of Us Mere Mortals?


    A restaurant, a bar, a place of interest or just something that most folk would miss out on.  I don't mean who is sh*gging who etc;

  • Last time we were there we found a place that we had never bothered with before - the litle Mexican restaurant, opp the Barcelo Santiago Hotel, it's tucked away the corner of the Commercial Centre (think it's called Neuvo Mexico) - I'm not saying it's the best around but we will certainly go again. We always thought it looked a bit grubby and tacky but give it a try - you may be surprised.

    I checked the meaning of the word secret (noun) = "something that should remain hidden from others (especially information that is not to be passed on)".

    Being a resident I'm always reluctant to pass on the details of good restaurants and bars in case they might be invaded by some of the plonkers who contribute to this message board.  However, if its gossip you're after, try the Bamboo Bar or the Sports (Gossip) Centre near the bus stop ;) ;) :o :o

  • Thank you tlg - I will give Nuevo Mexico a try next time I am over.

    quondam - what can I say!  I am not interested in gossip and I find it quite sad that you and Mr Max feel the way you do.  If I like a restaurant I'm happy for people to know about it and it's good for the restaurant, but hey each to their own :P

  • I love stopping off at the Plaza bar after a day on Arena Beach having a couple of tapas dishes and a cocktail or two, watching the locals playing dominoes and the sunset. Brill.   Only 18 weeks to go. :D

  • aahhh I'm getting confused now - I was talking about the bar in the Plaza where you can sit outside below street level, where the building work is currently going on beside Spanish Corner. The other Plaza bar, ran by Goyo and his wife is also very good value and they also do great tapas.
