Enjoyed a lovely meal for two at El Lance last night - our first visit and certainly not the last. The food choice was good, the atmosphere was smoothing and the service was nicely attentive - we were not rushed. The quality of the meal for a set price of E12 was excellent. Certainly in our Mojacar Playa top 10... More

There is also a nice variety of postre. All this for only €12. The house wine was also excellent for the price. There is a wide choice of dishes... More

El Lance is on Mojacar Playa next door but one to Bellavista which is one of our favourites; perhaps that why it has taken us so long to try it. Also it looks like it is just a bar from outside. Our Luncheon club descended upon them this week and everyone was highly impressed. We were served Bread and Aioli... More

We visited Lance for a meal last evening as we hadn't been there for some 12 months,now I know why! We decided that we wouldn't order the menu del dis but ordered from the main menu as we thought we would enjoy a better meal,how wrong we were!
