There seems to be two separate menu's on offer, the waiter knows your Irish or British and gives you the toasted sandwich lunch menu or if your a local you get the Spanish menu. We thought they curtailed the full menu at lunch but then noticed another table being served pialla and seafood dishes?? A bit disappointed food looked good.

Been in Mojacar for a few days and have tried unsuccessfully to get Paella ( most restaurants want u to book ) We had the best paella, freshly cooked absolutely fabulous. Also had some Calamari which was equally as good. Sangria was fruity and rich - an absolute delight to eat here and we will definitely be back x

We had "raciones" here which are dishes to be shared. Really good and tasty Spanish food. The menu has something on for everyone. The service was friendly.

The food here is very good and the service quick and helpful. My wife had a pork fillet dish and she said that it was the best that she had ever tasted. She still talks about it. I had fish as did our other friends and the fish was cooked just right. The usual shortage of vegetables that you come... More
