The food here is very good and the service quick and helpful. My wife had a pork fillet dish and she said that it was the best that she had ever tasted. She still talks about it. I had fish as did our other friends and the fish was cooked just right. The usual shortage of vegetables that you come... More

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

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
