Restaurants in the Province of Castellon

I am working my way through the hopefully better restaurants in our province with the emphasis on Castellon to start with. I will be recording results on the my Maestrat Park & info about Spain Blog


Instinto Carnivoro, Castellon        

Four of us went for lunch, and found friendly and helpful staff, a pleasant atmosphere and varied menu, not vegetarian friendly, as the butchers is part of the restaurant, tasty starters, delicious steaks. We all had different so we could try each other's and found all were excellent. Had a first class wine, and a bill that did not make me gasp.

El Pairal, Castellon      

Six of us went here for my birthday and did not regret it. Had degustation which included their choice of wine which was very good. Pricy but first class food.

Mesón Navarro III, Castellon         

Went for lunch good food, staff a bit formal, suggest share starters as way to much food. Very good for goat lovers, not the cheapest, good comfortable decorations.

Tasca del Puerto               

This is a fantastic fish and seafood restaurant, Staff helpful, food delicious and different. Not the cheapest but worth every penny

After more than half a decade of bad news followed by worse news, it seems that the fortunes of Castellon Airport have finally started to change for the better.
Following the establishment of new routes to the facility from Bristol and Stansted, Ryanair have confirmed that the occupancy level of the combined flights is above the expected target - standing at an average of 167 passengers over the 20 flights to date, or 88.4%.
Furthermore, news last week saw Romanian airline Blue Air confirm that they too would follow Ryanair's lead and create routes to Castellon.
However, the good news does not end there. Later last week Polish-Hungarian airline WizzAir also announced that they too would establish routes from Northern and Central Europe to the airport.
Ryanair's Director of Sales and Marketing in Spain, José Espartero, confirmed that whilst the route from London to Castellon was more popular than the flight to Bristol, the airline was nonetheless considering establishing further routes between the UK and Castellon to start next Spring.
