There are plenty of things to get excited about in the Costa Blanca. This Spanish region is home to beautiful beaches, ancient ports and historic towns.

One of the biggest draws for many travelers is the food and drink, and from dining out in local tapas restaurants to exploring the fish and meat counters at the nearest supermarket, there is no shortage of places to sample delicacies on the east coast.

We know that the foodies among you love to try different flavours, so we asked some seasoned travel bloggers to give us their recommendations for the best traditional Spanish food and drink in the Costa Blanca.

What did we find out? Well, perhaps unsurprisingly, we discovered that the Costa Blanca is one of the best places on the globe to try paella. Almost every one of the travel enthusiasts we contacted mentioned this classic Spanish dish, and they also gave us some insight into the best restaurants to order this delicacy. They encouraged our travelers to look for the freshest local produce on offer, which could mean getting a little off the beaten track to find some nice restaurants. “Do as the locals do” was a motto many of our contacts recommended too – if you see a lot of Spanish people dining there you should be onto a good thing. Keep in mind that the culture involves eating evening meals much later over there. So, without further ado, here are some expert recommendations on the best places to try traditional Spanish food in the Costa Blanca.
