When you book your tennis holiday to La Manga Club, you mightn’t be all that worried about where you’re going to be wine-ing and dining, but knowing that you have a host of great restaurants waiting for you is never a bad thing. One of the new kids on the block at La Manga is the Ampersand Restaurant and Lounge and what a new kid it is. Up-market chic and style by the bucket-load are the order of the day at Ampersand. Offering a club style restaurant, a relaxed but dashing tapas bar and a gin club, there’s something for everyone at Ampersand.
The restaurant is situated at Centro Comercial Las Sabinas and is a great place for a romantic tete-a-tete or a group night out. So, if you come off the tennis court and fancy something really different, then the Ampersand should be on your GPS. A highly stylish environment with cutting edge design, you’ll find oysters rubbing shoulders with simple and delicious stuffed club sandwiches as well as waiters who are trained to attend to your every need without being in any way intrusive. So, from bar to table, whatever your preference, you’ll be able to enjoy it to your heart’s content, day-in and day-out.
Add to all this the live music that’s on offer at Ampersand and you’ll see why more and more people are raving about this restaurant on the social media websites. No matter whether you choose the first floor bar, so you can sneak out and catch some rays on the sun terrace or the downstairs restaurant and lounge bar, you’re not going to be disappointed. What’s more, there’s even English bitter on tap, so if that’s what floats your boat, you’ll feel right at home. However, if your attitude is more “when in Spain” and you want to really get into the Spanish wines then the comprehensive and sensibly priced wine list will have you clinking glasses in no time.
Some of the unusual dishes on offer at Ampersand include beef pizza that boasts thin slices of roast beef that are stacked over horseradish and pickles. Although this option might sound just a tiny bit odd, for those who’ve tried it and liked it, there’s no getting away from the fact that they’re now out and about finding a pizza house to re-create it for them! Add to this, the deep fried milk that’s on offer for dessert and you’ll get the drift that things at Ampersand aren’t just plain fayre.
A restaurant that is hailed by La Manga guests who’ve visited as “a great addition to the La Manga resort”, offering “good food at a reasonable price”, there’s no doubt that it’s well worth setting aside an evening during your tennis holiday to take up a seat at this eaterie. So why don’t you set up your plans so you can make time to visit? If you’re here for a long stay, that won’t be an issue, but if you’re only here for a week or so, it’s well worth checking out the entertainment that’s on offer at Ampersand to see which night you might pop this place on your agenda.
Alternatively, if you want a quiet, romantic evening for two, then you might want to avoid the live music. Either way, you’ll be able to enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the bar, a sumptuous meal in the restaurant or something a bit more eclectic in the tapas bar. Top it all off with a late night gin cocktail in the gin club and you’ll be ready to head off to bed with a late night spring in your step before falling into a deep and satisfied slumber.
The following day, when it comes to working off your dining pleasures, you can always book up for a fitness class or an extra match on the tennis court. With a whole host of fitness classes, from Ciclo-spinning or ‘spin’, Cardiotonic, Aerobics, Glutes Abs and Legs (GAB), Step, Total pump or body pump to Pilates, you’ll soon have the calories you’ve consumed worked off. If you’re on the brink of booking your tennis holiday and would like to iron out a few last minute details, why not get in touch? Our friendly and experienced staff are waiting to take your call. Every member of team knows La Manga like the back of their hand and it’s rare to get a question they can’t answer. So all you have to do is ask.
