“Peter and Caroline ate at Ems a lot”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Starting off in the teeth of biting January gales, while house-hunting, we commenced with brandy and cafe con leche to warm up mid-morning and graduated to the fish and chips evenings and steak nights. A lovely atmosphere, obliging staff and good food in Plaza Arteaga, in this friendly Spanish town only 15 minutes from the warm waters of the Mar Menor. Try and be there for the fiesta - sight worth experiencing. This bistro offers all you could want, and also has many other activities which must be of great interest to the casual caller, as well as the indigent British ex-pat population. Ask for Kat - she's a star! (And of course there's always Thomas, also a cat)

“Fantastic food, good service, friendly service”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We found Em's bar between Christmas and New Years eve, we sat outside in the sunshine, looking upon a little square, with a church chiming on the hour, local Spanish people going about there business. It was lovely, the coffee was great, my daughter enjoyed her lunch there nearly everyday. They had a special menu put on New Years Eve which was fully booked. Katrina did her utmost to get us in and kindly phoned us on NYE in the morning to say a table had come available and we had a wonderful 3 course meal, the music was great, we did not want for anything more. The meals coming out of a small kitchen were exceptional, in taste, size and presentation. The waitresses were kind and could not do enough for you. Brilliant evening and lovely stay. Also another bonus they have free wifi - daughter was in her elements!

“Service which you cannot beat”
Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

Paid this place a visit in october and had a lovely breakfast. Mentioned to the owner I was struggling to get a boarding pass printed which good old Ryan air offered to do for 40 euros. Without realising at the time whilst consumed with this enormous breakfast he went and connected up to the website and allowed me to use his laptop and printer. Doesn't get better. Can't wait to go back and support the type if business that deserves it.
Hasta pronto
Ian

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Whenever we are abroad; we have always tried to eat where the locals eat & avoid any English style restaurants like the plague; however Em's Bistro is definitely the exception & our very guilty pleasure!
The service is great; everyone is friendly and the quality of food and standard of presentation is really high. Wednesday is Fish 'n Chip night & last night, we enjoyed the best fish & chips that we have had for years. The portions were generous, the batter was crispy, the chips were 'proper home cooked chips' and our delicious meal reminded us both of happy childhood days.
We love Tapas and visiting Spanish restaurants, but also love to mix it up a bit & Em's fits the bill perfectly.
