Chef and Owner
He studied at the CDT Tourism Centre of Alicante for two years and on finishing he had the chance to work in prestigious restaurants such as El Celler de Can Roca (Girona) and las Rejas (Las Pedroñeras).
For years he has combined his work at El Granaíno with giving courses and workshops all over the province of Alicante; filming specialised cooking programmes and also giving talks at congresses such as “Lo Mejor de la Gastronomía” (The Best about Gastronomy), “Madrid Fusión” and “GastroAlicante”.
He is always on the move and expectant about all the latest events in the culinary world, but he stays true to the philosophy of El Granaíno Product, tradition, honesty and simplicity.
Maître d' and Owner
She studied Management and Administration. Begoña runs the Dining Room of the Mesón Granaíno; she is also in charge of the purchasing and organising different areas.
Her joining the team was decisive for the consolidation of the 3 rd Generation of this restaurant that is more than 50 years old.
Just like Odón, she keeps a close eye on the current trends in service, management and the most recent protocol of the restaurant industry although she never overlooks the original philosophy of El Granaíno”.
The opinion of our clients
My husband and I went for an appetizer before lunch, and we felt like trying everything, it is all
superb without exception and full of people. I think it is the best restaurant in Elche.
The best restaurant of Elche. The food at the bar is spectacular. The best shellfish of Elche is
served in El Granaíno. Everything is fantastic.
