If you are in Murcia and the Mar Menor area this is a place you have to go to. Lovely out door seating with sea view to the bay. Nice and contemporary inside, but still with a cosy atmosphere. Very good food, many rice dishes (apparently can't all be called Paella). Good selection of wines and beer. Down to details, even their bread is to die for.

We had a fabulous lunch at this new restaurant on the harbour on a lovely sunny, spring day. Service quick and friendly and the food tasty and fresh. Octopus and fresh corvina was the best I have ever tasted. Highly recommended!

Having arrived late Easter Sunday afternoon we thought we would struggle to find a restaurant open early evening , as luck would have after a walk around Cabos de Palos ,Bocana de Palos was not only open it was virtually full and still in the sunshine.

I had the black cuttlefish linguine with fresh tomato, king prawns, clams and squid which was excellent, tasted fantastic and the presentation was lovely.

We had great service, all the staff were very friendly and the restaurant has a great atmosphere and a fantastic view too!

The food and drinks are every fairly priced.

We will definitely be returning here both during this holiday and on future holidays.

Called by for lunch, Sunday 18 March and were lucky to get a table, very busy. And there must 100 covers or more.

It seems to be the place to go by the seafront and justifiably so. We opted for the pork paella and it was lovely and more than enough for 2. Bread and trio of garlic dips to start. Really good. Had the cheapest red from the wine list, again really good and local from Jumila.

Cheesecake (baked) dessert excellent and then we were offered a complimentary glass of dessert wine, PX Montulia, never had it before but loved it, sweet as expected, tasted of raisins and prune, might sound strange but a must try.

Our waiter, didn’t get his name, was top drawer. As good as we’ve had anywhere for ages.

This is a busy restaurant, but well worth the visit.

Popped in here because of the good reviews. Most places around it closed for winter but this was busy.

Location is fab and the salts sea bass was lovely

Vegetables could have been a bit warmer.
But the house white was top notch
