A repeat meal because I'm a fish and chips lover! In fact, the Irish Rover makes it like nobody else in the area; the cod always looks very fresh and is delicious. Drinks are tipical of a sea side restaurant, almost all one can think about...

The service was very good. Menu ok. My meal was mediocre - fish cakes were dry and my starter (poppers) appeared to be micro wave packaged food. My husband's sausage and mash was very tasty and lots of it. A nice atmosphere, full of British ex pats.

Excellent evening with group of friends from Mojacar & Vera. Enjoyable act and stimulated audience which you don't always see. People were eating but we just went for drinks. Act started at 9pm and, apart from a short break, continued until almost midnight. Thoroughly enjoyable and only 5€/ ticket. Well done Irish Rover. Sandra

We called in to the Rover a number of times during our month in Mojacar, mostly for a drink after a walk along the promenade. We decided to try the Sunday lunch one week and it was perfect. We also had fish and chips one Friday which was also very good. The staff are British and very friendly. The beer... More

Friendly staff and very good "British" menu featuring things like steak. Three of us had lunch here and we all had fish and chips. It was fresh cod and lovely crisp batter.
