.....''Simples'' because the waiter, Serge, has a wonderful sense of humour and is well aware of the TV advert ''Meerkat'' connection! Excellent, because having tried Sunday lunch twice, with nothing but praise for the quality of the roasts, the evening menu was even better.
Book a table well in advance, as this place is, deservedly, very popular. The owner, Christopher, is hands-on and makes a point of having a few words with his diners to ensure all is well. Not a main street location, and the exterior is nothing special, but inside is tasteful, relaxing and comfortable. Background music is kept to a sensible level, and there are no TV screens intruding!
We look forward to our next visit, very soon

If you are looking for a special meal during your visit to the area this Restaurant is well worth a visit. They do two price menus 19.95 euros and 21.95 euros with supplements for certain dishes. There is a good choice on the menu though it lacks a selection of fresh fish dishes.
It is expensive in comparison with other restaurants but this depends on the individual and the type of food that they like to eat while on holiday.
I had no complaints with the service or the food with the exception of the Pate starter which was to be accompanied by an orange chutney. The chutney turned out to be the equivalent of english marmalade. When I pointed out that it wasn't chutney as advertised I was told that nobody had complained before. The only alternative that the staff could offer me was caramelised onion.
If you are going to visit, booking would be advisable especially during busy periods.

The place, Restaurant Christopher.
Where, Residencial Eliseos Playa in Mar Azul on the N332 coast road south of Torrevieja, very near the Hospital.
This restaurant has improved year on year, we cannot rate it highly enough. The food, both quality and quantity, its presentation, the staff, all go towards making the little restaurant one of the best places to eat along the Costa. We have been having the occasional meal there for 6 years now, as we go to Spain perhaps twice a year, and always, always book at least one meal there. You have to look for it, as it is tucked away below the pool area of the apartment, but it is well worth the effort. If you are going to visit the Torrevieja area, the make time to call on Christophers, you will not be disappointed.
