Great outdoor lunch

I have enjoyed dinner and lunch at this restaurant. There is a nice open kitchen layout, spacious setup of dining room, staff is friendly. Food is OK, not spectacular but they do nice arrangements. Best of all is the view at Amapola. Overlooking the golf course with the sea at the horizon. I was... read more

Have not been for a while so was really looking forward to this and it was my husband's birthday so we had high expectations having told them this fact when booking. Service was slow, 46 minutes between starter and main course. Ordered pork rice dish which was chewy and the rice was a bland plate of sludge. Our starters were... More

Have been many times over the years but Sunday lunch is always our favourite. The buffet is really good value & of superb quality. Get a table outside overlooking the golf course & it's hard to beat. The staff are lovely & professional. Nice to dress for as it feels more of a fine dining dining restaurant which makes it... More

Sitting outside on the terrace overlooking the manicured landscape made this feel very special from the start. We enjoyed taking our time savouring the Mediterranean cuisine which lived up to the hotel's 5* rating. Euros 375 for 7 people including wine.

We celebrated a special occasion at the Amapola based on the La Manga Club resort, which happened to be Sunday so we could take advantage of their all you can eat Sunday lunch. Don't be fooled, however, this is not some sort of mass produced food... This is high quality fare indeed. My meal consisted of a salad starter, with... More

The standard of cooking was poor with the sea urchin starter tasting only of scrambled eggs. The consomme was not a consomme (ie. a clear soup) but a watery and cloudy tomato soup. The John Dory fish main dish was overcooked and did not come across as particularly fresh and the pig cheeks were doused in a sickly sweet sauce.... More

We eat here on a Saturday night, having the degustacion menu. I could not fault the various courses and menu, the chef deserves praise for this wonderful gastronomic feast. However having looked at the dress code on the hotel website, stating trousers must be worn, seeing people in sports shorts is a little disappointing. The service was good until the... More

The 'brief' was for a truly memorable birthday celebration. A table for 11 on Sunday evening May 3rd. We'd arranged for a bouquet and aperitifs on the veranda.
