Great restaurant that serves good value food in a pleasant surrounding. He serves a Cous cous feast for 2 people which has to be ordered a day in advance. It is an amazing feast but make sure you go hungry!

Nestled in the shadow of an ancient church in the little village of Mojacar, this restaurant delivers an extraordinary meal. Served and prepared by an ancient Algerian man, the couscous is prepared in a slow, painstaking manner which produces a wonderful, creamy grain.
