My friend and I dined here twice during our recent break in Moraira and were impressed with the warm welcome and lovely food. We chose from the set menus which vary in price and include wine.The owners and their staff are charming people and the restaurant is popular with locals as well as visitors.

We booked this very Spanish restaurant for New Year's Eve back in October. We had never eaten in the restaurant before but friends had recommended it as a good space to have a proper Spanish new year.

El Refugio is amidst a cluster of sidestreet restaurants on Moraira seafront and is easily missed. Five of us enjoyed a hearty 2 course dinner in this busy but well-run restaurant. The staff are very friendly and efficient, the menu caters for seafood and meat eaters and there is a very reasonable wine list. A good selection of music plays... More

Just ate the best roast leg of lamb ever! And that's saying something as it's my favourite dish The 'ensalada espescial' was also excellent and the 'house' red was most quaffable too.

Disapointed, incorrect food served, expensive for the quality, poor / rude service. Argumentative waitress. There are many other delicious places to eat, we have a villa here and eat in le dauphin to local cafes and have never come across service or lack of quality like it.
