Two of us had the chicken parmigiana and another had pork, all delicious. The vegetables were well-cooked and not fussy and the accompanying fries were good. We had cheesy garlic pizza bread as a side order and this was an excellent size and went down well. For desserts, we had chocolate pudding, apple pie and banoffee pie. All the food... More

Can't fault this restaurant. Four people with four different starters. Four different main courses. And three different deserts. All excellent. Certainly fine dinning. Will go again

Great home cooked Italian food. I regularly visit Osteria when in Mojacar, big step up from the many pizzerias. Great place to spend the evening.

We thought we would give this place a try having passed it on several occasions and heard it promoted on the local radio. It is set just off the road between Mojacar Playa and Pueblo. Pehaps not in the best of locations but we found the restaurant to be very tastefully decorated and we received a very warm welcome and... More

Yes it is very popular with resident Brits but I really can't fathom out why. It isn't bad but then it is not that good either. The dishes are well prepared, if not over generous on portion size. The prices are above average for the area. If you go you won't be disappointed but there are better places to eat... More

This is a cosy Italian restaurant with good food and pleasant, efficient staff. The prices are reasonable. It is a little of the main strip and has some parking but possibly not enough.

I used to love this restaurant but on the last two visits I have changed my mind. The food is o.k. average, nothing special but I have suddenly realised the portions are getting smaller and smaller. My husband chose chicken on the plancha and he got two very thinly sliced pieces of chicken which added up to a quarter of... More

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The food was good. Menu del dia was 12.90 each, drinks extra but well worth it. We will return.

I started a nice bowl of fresh mussels in a tomato and herb broth which was very nice. My sea bass was small and overdone with overdone vegetables. My poached pear in red wine sauce desert was excellent. My wife's main course was advertised as pasta parcels with stuffed with meat - it was in fact ravioli and the meat... More

We have been many times now to Osteria and eat at this restaurant every year when we are in the area. It looks nothing from outside, and it's not blessed with great seaside views, however, the staff are excellent as is the food. Outstanding value for money and highly recommended.
