El Riu is a restaurant which can be found on the way to Castell De Guadalest located in Alicante, Spain. After visiting this wonderful restaurant on numerous occasions I thought I should finally take the liberty in writing something about it. El Riu specialises in charcoal grilled meat; which is always cooked to perfection. The diversity of meat that is available is quite extensive as they offer: quails, rabbit, lamb cutlets, leg of lamb chops and even goat chops! All these types of meat alongside some others. The meat is very simply cooked, with no added condiments which allows the meat to absorb the smokiness of the charcoal and meat juices combined together. Incredibly tender and juicy!!
