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

Tucked away in this little square, we had a delicious lunch of fried fish and freshly flavoured tomato salad. Service was professional and friendly and we could have sat there all day surrounded by children playing around us and their parents passing a relaxing afternoon.

Found this place a bit by accident and will never forget the meal we had! Was a bit early in 'the season' so was quiet but this did not detract from the atmosphere and the service was above and beyond! Chose fillet with blue cheese and this will for ever go down as the BEST steak I have ever had... More

During a trip from Madrid to La Manga (Murcia) we stopped in the city to do some sightseing and went to this restaurant following the recommendations from tripadvisor. It was a gret choice and we enjoyed a very good meal. They are specialised in fresh fish and rices (paellas) and also fresh vegetables coming from the "garden of Europe" (Murcia).... More

The square in which this restaurant is located, is always busy there are many restaurants and bars competing for trade. I had not eaten here for sometime,we choose it because it was the only one with free seating outside. It was a balmy October evening, what better than dining Alfresco. I had been in Spain a couple of days, with... More

We come regularly to Murcia/Mar Menor and when we are not here I dream about tapas at this place, sat inside with a glass of wine, great service it never lets you down. Let them recommend something and go slow, 2 tapas at a time and use your imagination, look at what others are having and what fresh ingredients are... More

This restaurant is in the Plaza San Juan, and we sat outside as it was a hot July evening. We got there about 10:30pm and decided against the tasting menu as being too much food for that time of the evening, so instead we chose from the menu. At first we were a bit concerned that the restaurant wasn't very... More
