Booking advisable in the summer. Open all year.
Charming restaurant (actually a small hotel as well) on the shores of the Mar Menor dating back to 1904 where the speciality was salt water baths. (The marble baths, which are a work of art are still there but no longer used, preserved as they were, you can ask to see them).
There is a charming Andalucian style patio full of plants and greenery, where the local ladies take their coffee or tea and play dominoes or cards in the morning or afternoon.
Lunchtime eating outside on the terrace is more casual, but in the evenings the atmosphere in the restaurant is colonial style with large fans and big wicker chairs, many old victorian photos on the walls.
Ideal to go in the early evening, (or indeed for long lunch). Walk along promenade by the sea as the sun goes down on the Mar Menor, and then dine in this seafront restaurant, facing the "La Manga strip" in the distance. Great atmosphere and food, and beautifully laid tables. Mediterranean seafood and meat dishes - the lobster rice is excellent. Good place also for family sunday lunch
