It is amazing weather for November so when I spoke to my fella about Sunday lunch with the folks, we decided to go for Sunday lunch and live music by the sea. As the folks are retired they like to have a traditional sunday roast on a budget, and you really cannot get better value than the Nautilus Restaurant, in Punta Prima. It is set overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean sea next to a pretty cove and beach. The area is stunning with great sea front walks and many beach bars to enjoy the view with a cocktail or a brew.
The Nautilus has many terraces, outside, inside and upstairs, however we opted for the lower terrace as it has easier access.The main part is glassed in this time of year where the diners can enjoy the views without the breeze. I really enjoyed my ‘menu del dia’ choice of soup, roast beef and apple pie although there were plenty of other choices and the bill came to only €83 between 7 of us, including drinks! So great value!
The Nautilus also has an la carte menu which is more expensive but still good value for the quality of food, service and venue. We often come at night for a treat, where we splash out on an Aberdeen Angus steak and good quality wine.Totally worth it!
After we had lunch, I persuaded our crew to come with us to Cabo Roig beach to enjoy the second half of The Kolted live acoustic music session which is on every Sunday and it’s free, During the winter months they start around 1pm and in the summer it’s around 6pm.
The Kolted are made up of two singers from the original band and both young irish performers with amazing voices and both talented guitarists. They play in various venues with their band and have quite a following including many now from Sucina. We manage to go and either see them at the beach or one of their other venues on the Costa Blanca quite often.
Watching the band, listening to their stunning music as the sun slowly started to go down was bliss. We all relaxed and chatted whilst sitting with our feet in the sand. This is what life in sunny Spain is about!
