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.

Our lunch experience for four was wonderful, we shared a really imaginative, inventive starter and then shared an amazingly fresh and beautifully cooked, huge sea bass. The dish was simple but perfect. Great desert and coffee and lovely, friendly service resulted in a memorable experience. Well done Maloca!!

Friendly welcome and service from staff and the owner. The food we ate was delicious and good value, as was the regional wine. A beautiful venue with a relaxed outside space to spend a couple of hours in the sun.

Maloca used to be one of my favorite places in La Manga, but the last time the staff from the bar area behaved rudely and on overall the service was really poor. We told them that we were going to have lunch and asked if they could reserve a table for the cocktails after that assuring us that we don’t need a reservation and that there would be a table for sure. Obviously the bar was full after lunchtime so we didn’t get a table, but the worst thing were the poor manners of the staff. I would definitely think twice before getting back there 👎🏽

The settng is superb, right on the beaches of the mar menor. The food however has changed from a gastronomic feast with superbly cooked and presented dishes, to the same old run of the mill eatery. Having been looking forward to going back there to get a full 180 turn around on quality and presentation. Very disappointed.

Had a fantastic Sunday lunch here where the food, setting service were all phenomenal. I can say that one of the starters we shared, low temperature cooked eggs, with truffled mash and foie gras was among the best I have enjoyed anywhere in the world. Amazing terrace to enjoy after dinner drinks.

We love Maloca and go three or times a year. Great atmosphere and decor. Food is delicious - Spanish favourites but with a modern twist. Boat barbecue from which we had squid and sea bass yesterday Then sat in the Maloca bar on the beach next door drinking cocktails. You do have to drive or get a taxi from La Manga Club is 20 euros each way. Takes 15 mins in a taxi from the club

The location of this restaurant/bar is stunning, but unfortunately the service does not live up to it's billing. We arrived on Saturday evening to be greeted by a great atmosphere with a house DJ and a beautiful sunset. From then on it was all downhill as we waited for half an hour to be asked if we would like a drink and we were not alone as all of the tables around us were similarly ignored. We then went to take up our restaurant booking and were treated abruptly by the host. The atmosphere in the restaurant was chaotic with members of staff getting more and more stressed as the evening wore on which made it impossible to enjoy what should have been a relaxing evening. To compound matters. the food was very average. This establishment has the potential to be a fantastic venue but it needs to be managed more efficiently and customer service needs to be greatly improved.

This restaurant is in a fantastic location on the beach of Las Salinas and not too far from La Manga Club. Our first visit here but certainly not the last. Our waitress, Carmen, provided great service with super knowledge of the menu and perfect recommendations. The ladies loos could do with a reconsideration of the layout and didn’t reflect the high quality of this restaurant. We will definitely be back and highly recommend.

Amazing food in a beautiful setting with attentive service. What more could you ask. The anchovies were fabulous; the dogfish croquettes were tasty and grilled cockles were something I’ve never experienced before. The food was so good we’re planning on going back for lunch tomorrow.

Amazing food delicous in BUT for a after drink with super cool LOUD music we was confined to our chairs and told to sit and be quiet like at school.. The staff got aggressive because we was standing by our table moving a little bit to the music.. No dancing they said so we sat and danced by our chairs and got told to not move.. Completely ruined the night.. Dont have LOUD music if you dont want people to enjoy 🙄

Definitely worth a visit here, you have to drive but it is worth it. We went on a very windy night in October, but still thoroughly enjoyed the settings, lovely decor and stunning views. All I would say is letting it down, is the food is overpriced for what it is, good but not great standard.
