Description: A small RESTAURANT and HOTEL in a unique position almost next to the Mediterranean Sea, centric but in a tranquil side street opposite the Farmacia and caixa-bank. In Mojácar-Playa now 3 years, but well-known by its own history from its first location in Campico de Honor /Sorbas.Carefully elaborated food from fresh ingredients; a fusion of international flavours in meaty, fishy and vegetarian dishes, respecting as well food-allergies or simply food problems. Enjoy a meal not only to fill your stomach; a supreme wine list to choose from, your wine nicely served and delicious home made desserts complete your meal and make your visit to ALBIR an experience. Reservations are recommendable to keep our standard. And the “Little ones” were always happy with their ‘Children’s special’.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Jaun's culinary skills and passion for food are not to be missed. We ave lived in this area for 8 years and my husband said it is the best fillet steak he has tasted since we arrived and cooked to perfection. The front of house service by Renata is excellent nothing is too much trouble and she has a great knowledge of the menu and wine list.
It is at the top price wise but worth every penny.

Loved the food and the way that Juan handcrafts his dishes and really wants you to enjoy his food. A true master chef and guru.

“Top of the list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

By far, this is the best restaurant in Mojacar! Tucked away in a little side street, it has a stunning garden area, where you can enjoy drinks before your meal. The food is extraordinary and the service just wonderful. Price wise, it is at the top, but you get what you pay for and nothing is too much trouble. Excellent......my favourite

“Quiet and good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

What a lovely ambience. Chef knows his stuff. Couldn't do enough for us. Brought out the day's catch and told us how he could cook it - amazing taste. Simply but classically furnished. very nice indeed. Not the cheapest but well worth it.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

I visited this restaurant, within Hotel Albirico on Wednesday 11th July 2012 in the company of my wife and three friends. It is a well appointed restaurant down a small side street very near the playa. Drinks and appetisers were served in a most pleasant cool and tranquil, lawned rear garden just off the dining room. Renata is a most efficient front of house hostess/waitress whilst her husband Juan is the excellent chef who visits guests at the table to ensure all is satisfactory. The dishes were of excellent quality and superbly presented. This venue is not for those on an economic budget or seeking a 'menu del dia' as each dish has fine ingredients and is freshly cooked. There is a range of very reasonably priced house wines in addition to more expensive selections. There are five rooms for guests to stay over. More on this experience later I hope. A most enjoyable, relaxing and comfortable evening and most suitable for the more discerning diner.
