Set in a small square just off the main street this lovely restaurant is a haven of excellent food and service. The vegetable tempura was the best we have ever tried as were the fried anchovies. The prices are a little more than most of the resaurants at lunchtime however well worth the extra.
Have decided to go back to Cartegena just to eat there again before leaving the area.

In a nice, small city square, setting with a wonderful terrace a generous selection of local and National foods are offered.
The service is very good and the English language is understood and spoken very well by the host and a few waiters. A pleasant and culinary rewarding experience even if the price tag seems a little high, however worth it, with exception of the Cava's and wines. It is always difficult to be honest because in so many restaurants in Spain one is always treated with warmth and respect and it feels like betraying the people that welcomed and hosted you when a negative remark is commited to paper (so to speak). Anyways, the wine selection and price/quality dimension deserve some attention from the owners in my modest opinion.

I was in Cartagena with my partner for a short trip for my birthday and we had been looking around the city to find somewhere to eat. At first we decided to go somewhere different - more a traditional spanish place with tapas etc, as the Michelin Stars put us off pricewise. The other place was a total disaster, nasty staff and tourist rip-off, although I speak Spanish fluently. We then decided to go back to LA MARQUESITA. I must say - it was one of the nicest meals I have ever had. Both, the athmosphere and the friendly staff made us feel soo welcome. Unfortunately it was too cold to sit outside, but the garden looked lovely. And the food - we opted for the 20€ pp menue - was very good and there were many choices for each course. The menue includes 3 courses, water, wine, beer or soft drink, and coffee. All in all a more than perfect birthday dinner. If I ever go back to Cartagena, I will DEF go there again.

This place has Michelin stars, no wonder, the food, Valentines day, presentation excellent, staff, well as the place was packed they excelled in every way. We have been before a few days ago when it was not so busy and the service was just the same. You will not be disappointed, very Spanish but even if you don't speak Spanish ask for Pepe who speaks English, a nice guy. The house wine we had was good, the place is not too big so if you can book in advance. The food is great value for money, not cheap but the quality! I believe you get whet you pay for. Its hidden away a little bit easy, go to the top of Calle Mayor, just turn right past Barclays bank and its by the huge tree. So go, enjoy!
