We were the first to arrive,8.30 pm which seems to be the time that most restaurants open in the evening here. Started with a Russian Salad Marinara, which is Russian salad with anchovies on a breadstick. This is a local specialty and though Russian Salad is not a favourite of mine,this really works. Followed by Mojama (smoked fish roe) and... More

A busy Saturday lunchtime service and the square was buzzing - so a great atmosphere. The waiter was very friendly and our starter of clams, artichokes, prawns and wild garlic (to share) was excellent. But John Dory chopped up, floured and deep fried until crisp was not a good idea.

We got coupons from an ad in a newspaper and decided to buy since this is one of the most popular restaurants in town. Besides the paella, we got some starters and everything was fresh and correctly cooked. Our paella was made with lobster and it was delicious and more than enough, the portions were huge. The service was good... More

Popped in for a drink at the bar, and after sampling a couple of tapas, decided to stay for dinner. Set in a busy little square, with buskers and street entertainers, it was the perfect setting on a warm evening. I chose the grilled vegetables to start, which were fresh and garlicky and lovely. My husband had the sauteed seafood,... More

We visited for dinner on a weekday evening after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. Probably the best thing about this restaurant is it's location in a small square in the center of Murcia. The food was good, although quite expensive compared to some other places in town. We had the warm salad appetizer, and the lamb and beef cube entrees.... More

My girlfriend and I visited this place during our summer holidays through Spain and were very pleased by this Restaurant. After a warm welcome, the waiter convinced us to have the lobster with pimentón (€18,00), which is the chef's favorite dish and we were very happy to have chosen it. It was absolutely fantastic and original and will certainly try... More

We felt we were taken advantage of by the waiter who pressed dish after dish onto us and then pressed for us to have dessert and then coffee. He did give us a digestif but I am not sure if we paid for it or not. The first two dishes were nice - fried prawns and a tomato salad but... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch, on a reasonable Spring day so that sitting outside was a pleasant experience. The restaurant is situated in the old part of town in a nice square along with several other restaurants. The area was quite crowded but the ambience was excellent, and almost all tables at this restaurant were taken. We had a... More
