Nuevo Kwizeen Restaurant is opening up in what was Benny's International Restaurant in the Antigua Bay Complex in Costa Antigua on 1st February.  That's another restaurant that has changed ownership so many times over the years.

Thats a pity, it was a very nice place lots of local artistic crafts and local produce. The stall holders were very friendly, they were always willing to talk about their wears, and teh cheese guys and girls were great, always willing to give samoles. I always visited them and bought something to support them. Didn't get up last Christmas but I think they might have even been closed by then. :(

I think they were in a poor location, away from the usual tourist footfall, industrial estate is not a place that tourists visit.

I agree Can, It was in the wrong place, theres plenty of empty shops in Caleta which would be a better location. The craft market over christmas was a good idea and seemed really busy. Might be an option to hold this on a regular basis

The craft market is still being held on a Friday night at the Plaza.  I think those who were at Fuerte feria are there.

15 have got an advert in this months Fuertextra to say they are moving into an extension, so they must be taking over more space downstairs.

The Vape Station also has an advert in the paper - they do E Cigarettes I think.  They also have a stall on the market.

Hello Dan.  Welcome to the forum.

In my opinion there are too many bars offering the same product.  However, they all seem to survive.  There's The Pickled Palm, The Sizzling Pig, Three Amigos, Red Lion, The Boleyn, Chaplins,Cactus Jacks, El Nido, Halfwayhouse and The Bell.  Then there's the Asia restaurant and the Argentinian Restaurant.

I've always thought that there needs to be a Spanish/International bar in there, as many people staying in the surrounding area are from all over Europe.

It's hard to be self-employed here.  You have to pay 250€ plus (depending on your age) a month to register as self employed, and then pay tax on top of everything you earn.  Then on top of this there are rent and all the other business costs.
