Restaurant area of El Brindi Negro

We are happy to support and publicise new businesses during these difficult economic times especially when they offer value, quality and originality.

Today we enjoyed a light lunch at El Brindi Negro, a new restaurant in Las Negras.

Outside, you are greeted by some weird pieces of conceptual art and inside the decor is colourful and quirky.

Tapas – prawn kebab

Negrita – goat’s cheese

The food is original, delicious and beautifully presented. The tapas are very different from what you would expect in a Spanish bar and raciones, called mini negritas, are equal to a main course.

El Brindi Negro is located in the last street of the Cala Espuma urbanisation in Las Negras, about 50 metres from the beach. Please try it. You will not be disappointed.


About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
