Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant is the best restaurant on the Mar Menor. The food is consistently fantastic which goes hand in hand with the impeccable service. This place is a must visit for anyone wanting a little more than you would expect from other restaurants in the area. The menu is extensive and suits every appetite and is often changed to keep it fresh and now with the added choices of the sushi bar which is also tremendous. The wine list is also extensive with wines from all over the world and at a price to suit every pocket along with a cocktail list you would only ever see in a top New York cocktail bar. The restaurant sits beautifully beside the Mar Menor with iconic views over the bay and is ideal for lunch or on an evening whilst the sun is setting and you are sipping on your pre dinner drinks. The restaurant offers both an outside terrace or inside dining for those cooler evenings. Whatever time of year you visit this amazing restaurant you will receive a warm welcome & food, drinks & service exclusive in the area.

First of all let me say I met Celine a few weeks ago when we popped into the restaurant for a coffee and a look at the menu and events board. We were warmly welcomed , served delicious piping hot coffee. We saw the wine tasting evening and put our names down straight the way , Celine was very friendly knowledgable and said she would get back to us via watts app with all the details . As promised she did , I noticed that there was 2 fish dishes in there my mum would not be able to eat (a quick text to Celine , she said not too worry they would prepare something else for my mum) (I feel that she really cares about her guests ) On the actual evening we arrived at the restaurant, which was beautifully lit inside and outside , a warm welcome was given by Celine and her husband and all the staff who were working that evening (I have mobility issues and Celine advised me , hope the table is ok , I put you here for easy access to the bathroom 😀😀. The food and wine were impeccable , as was the excellent service through out the evening My mum was served her two non fish dishes without any reminder , also it was noticed my mum does not drink red wine , so they continued to serve her white wine (which I thought was fantastic customer service , we were prepared to purchase a bottle of white wine for my mum. Celine Bruno and team , keep it up , we will be back very soon . The only improvement I think could be made for the evening is an A5 sheet with the details, grape ,alcohol content ,year of the wine and price (both in English and Spanish)

Comida ricissima y a buen precio. Muy sabrosa y bastante. La dueña nos ofreció también una sorpresa de San Vanetin, 2 galletas especiales de San Valentín, 2 panecillos y participar en un sorteo para un ramo de flores. Siempre está ofreciendo un poco mas y algo especial. Delicious food and at a good price. Very tasty and plenty of food. They actually put a couple of extra bread rolls in there and 2 Valentine's biscuits as a special gesture. We were also entered into a draw to win a lovely bunch of flowers worth €25. We have been to this restaurant many times and they always make you feel special and they do appreciate their loyal customers.

This is the best restaurant in region. The best service the best food & drink & the best value for money and just a few metres from the sea, overlooking the beautiful Mar Menor You will always receive a warm welcome & the choice of fresh food is unrivalled in the area. You can choose from a wide selection of fresh meat & fish or sushi & the menu has a great choice of vegetarian/vegan options & most dishes can be adapted for gluten free. The live entertainment evenings are not to be missed where you will find a great atmosphere, food & service. It is recommended to make a booking especially on entertainment evenings to avoid disappointment. An absolute must if you are visiting La manga club or the local area.

We had an early (for Spain) meal and so enjoyed the evening. A lot of the time restaurants offer very similar dishes, the decor is standard, there's no sense of occasion. El Secreto Lounge offers an upmarket, modern ambience. A place you can wear a dress, jewellery, make an effort for. The food was excellent, Celine and Alex who were front of house, friendly knowledgeable. Yes the dishes were a little more expensive than other restaurants, but it wasn't just sardines and a salad. You get what you pay for, and it was certainly worthwhile.

The most lovely warm welcome with delicious food served in a very stylish setting. Unexpected treats by way of prawns with a tartare sauce and strawberries dipped in chocolate came courtesy of Celine. Many thanks again.

Superb….as usual! Whenever we are in Spain we have a couple of evenings at El Secreto because the food is delicious, the setting is ideal and the owners and staff are faultless! The owners deserve every success and are the nicest people you could wish to meet. We love this place.

What an excellent evening spent with family to celebrate 2 birthdays. A lovely welcome from Celine, excellent food and wine. To top it off Celine had organised a birthday cake, presented with Happy Birthday being sung and balloons, that didn't keep the ages being celebrated a secret! Thank you for making it a special evening.

Wow Amazing …. My brother Simon and Katie , came out to La Manga to celebrate their 5th Wedding Anniversary with us . They wanted a smart restaurant with amazing food and service , so I suggested The El Secreto Lounge. Celine and Team, have worked extremely hard through out the pandemic, to keep the restaurant afloat ,, with takeaways etc, The menu is not extensive , but what you will find every dish offered is in season , cooked and presented beautifully,🥰🥰 We had the Beef Wellington , which was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing , (best steak I’ve tasted in a long time) served with chips, creamy mushrooms and broccoli dressed with Parmesan cheese .. My mum and husband both had the duck , which was equally amazing . The signature Gin was so much fun and complete dinner theatre ( Celine will be back soon , just for the Gin and Tonic) Desserts were fab, and for the happy couple Happy Anniversary plate with Complimentary dessert. Don’t delay put the El Secreto Lounge on your restaurant list . I promise you , will not be disappointed .

Excellent restaurant with a beautiful front line spot overlooking the Mar Menor, varied menu from sushi to a variety of meat dishes. Staff are very friendly, multilingual and very happy to explain any of the dishes. Best to book ahead as can get very busy, particularly in the evenings.

Me and my girlfriend went for a night of sushi and entertainment. We tried a variety of sushi and the Mexican style tuna tekkamaki was outstanding. I had the pork Wellington, very filling and we will definitly be returning to try the rest of the menu. There was a singer for entertainment, the atmosphere for dinner was very relaxed and it wasn't over powering the ambience. After the break she stepped up the tempo a bit and the tables sang along and you could see everyone was really enjoying their night. Best restaurant we have been to this year. We suggest it to all of our friends now.

This is our 'go to' restaurant for special occasions and celebrations. it has a small but exquisite menu and wine list delivered with so much care by Dani, Cline and Alex. Their tuna tartare is the best! If you want wonderful food and great personal service you cannot do better. Not cheap but not silly prices either. If I have one tiny criticism.....I would like slightly bigger main course portion sizes. Thats all.

The food was fab all evening & the host, Celine was so friendly & just wanted to make sure we were enjoying the food & the evening. Muchas gracias Celine, we will be back as soon as we get back to Spain. Hilary

From the moment the Vesuvius gins arrived at our table, I knew the night would be smokin’. A group of seven friends meeting up for the first time in a while, we were hungry and excited to be at El Secreto. We’d heard rumblings that the restaurant was molten hot. Celine and her team greeted us with big smiles and an artfully inconspicuous attention to detail. Choosing from the menu was a challenge; I wanted everything on there. My sea bass was perfectly cooked and the amuse-bouche, starters, side dishes and desserts were creatively presented and 10/10 delicious. Having devoured everything on our plates, we polished off the evening by cutting some seriously good shapes to the excellent live band. The food, service and atmosphere exceeded our expectations. It was impressive at every level. Thank you. We’ll be back in a flash.
