Dinner at Las Islas Boutique Hotel, Torreblanca

Las Islas is a small boutique hotel hidden away in the steep hills of Torreblanca.

I would have probably not discovered it if it wasn’t for the event announcement in one of the local Facebook groups. I booked a table in their restaurant to enjoy a bit of Lebanese cuisine paired with live jazz music.

The hotel is set in lush surroundings and feels like a private hidden oasis.

As you enter through the vine-covered stairs, you are greeted with a view of the cosy courtyard and sea views on your left.

The Restaurant

The restaurant offers seating in a beautiful traditional courtyard, shaded by palm trees and a pergola with climbing vines. There are also some seating options inside the main building, in case of bad weather.

The courtyard feels very spacious, cosy and romantic, so even though there may be many guests you won’t feel like you’re crammed next to each other.

There is also a small area with tables offering nice views toward the coastline, and a few seating options right by the pool.

Food at Las Islas

The Lebanese restaurant offers a mix of traditional Lebanese dishes with a few Mediterranean options to choose from.

Even with my vegetarian diet, I had no trouble finding a few delicious options to choose from.

Everything tasted delicious and very fresh, which is a welcome change from some of the coastal restaurants.

The portions were very generous and the service was very friendly and attentive, always making sure we have everything we need on the table.

I had Mujaddara, which is a traditional Lebanese dish I have not tasted before. It was a huge portion of cumin-spiced lentils with bulgur, topped with pomegranate and roasted nuts, and served with tzaziki sauce. It was very tasty and filling.

My husband had Kafta Khashkhash – minced lamb cooked on skewers, served with parsley, onion, peppers and jasmine rice.

We also shared a simple feta salad and humus, everything very fresh and delicious.

Hotel Gardens

The biggest surprise when visiting the hotel was the lush gardens stretching just below the restaurant terrace.

All of the 11 hotel rooms were on the left side, overlooking the terraced gardens and enjoying a private green oasis.

The stairs will lead you all the way down to a little clearing that continues further on, hugged from each side with huge plants and blooming flowers.

If you’re staying in the hotel, it’s the perfect place to get lost with a book and feel like you’ve just landed on your own private island.
