La Seu - lunch in Denia

The old town of Denia, departure and arrival port for ferries towards the Balearic Islands, has a totally different character than Javea.  A large fortress towers over the city and in one of the narrow streets new café's and restaurants are opening one after the other.

We've already tried two of them earlier, today we decide to have lunch in a house with a black façade and wooden details.  Through the glass door we detect an interesting interior, we're far too curious to just walk by.  And the menu looks promising.

The restaurant has many corners and rooms to sit in.  It is a sunny day and we choose the covered patio next to the kitchen visible behind an enourmous glass wall.  The opposite wall will attract my attention during the entire meal.  Can't get enough of the interesting patterns the sun creates on this wall.

Only a few minutes will the sun hide behind clouds, and even then the wall looks spectacular.

The restrooms are on the third level and look out over the patio and small casita, it gives an idea of how tall the wall is.

Inside the restrooms is a large glass wall filled with corks which seems to have a particular feature on the men's side (according to my husband ... I should have given him the camera).

Colourful furniture in the casita in the back.

And what about the food I hear you ask?
We had a very nice lunch menu, a mixture of traditional and modern cuisine, affordable prices.

Possibility to attend cooking workshops.
