Lovely setting and pretty good food, but.... We had drinks on the terrace on the beach before eating in the dining room. Our bill included €3.38 for bringing two drinks to the terrace a gin and tonic and glass of wine costing €7.75, we were also charged twice for the bread. This was in March and therefore not high season. We queried this and the waiter apologised but said it couldn't be changed 'because of the computer.' Had he not already taken our money we would have deducted this ourselves. Pretty sharp practice and incidentally we are not tourists here.

The views of the Mar Menor(Little Sea) are beautiful as is the sunset. The Mar Menor being a lagoon has a very calm sea which is part of the Med. The food on offer is very good and is value for money. The service and ambience is excellent particularly on the outside terrace. Parking is also very easy and of course free. Have visited many times and never disappointed. Bar meals or restaurant meals available on the terrace and an inside restaurant. White table cloths always a good sign. Hold special events there such as weddings and celebrations. Popular with both the Spanish and tourists. Approx. mid-way down the strip on the left hand side. A must to visit if in the area.

Went there with family and friends.
Food was low quality at a high price. But service was very good.
This place did remind me of Benidorm... Typical beach restaurant were they will rip you off since they know you are not coming back.
Oh well, since service was good and sights breath taking, I say "ok".

Fabulous restaurant! You have to eat here; lunch or dinner...both are excellent! Superb service, great food and a view that can't be beat! We went to this restaurant several times during our week at the coast in October 2013. The first time that we went, it was because we passed by and noticed a very nice outdoor dining terrace right on the water, but ended up going back multiple times (with 4-16 people) because of the quality of food and the service provided. Everyone at this restaurant is very friendly and accommodating; Carlos (El Capitan), Miguel (Antonio Banderas), Miguel #2 (Little One) and Juan. The best paella of our trip! Great Pizza's, beef and veal, and excellent fish dishes....also very good and large portioned salads and starters...try the Tuna Carpaccio. The only disappointing thing about this restaurant is that it is so far away and we cannot visit all the time...thanks for everything to Carlos and his team....Tamara and Fredrik

My parents were visiting the area from Canada, and we needed a spot to celebrate.
Although I'd never eaten a full evening meal, I'd had drinks and coffees in this spectacular spot beside the Mar Menor before and had been struck by the excellent service. This evening they didn't disappoint!! They obviously opened just for us...I had requested a particularly early dinner-time reservation using their handy on-line booking form. The fireplace was blazing, our table was set and the waiter was anticipating our arrival. We had the prix fixe gastronomy menu. Delicious! And the service was excellent. I highly recommend Area Sunset.
