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.

Lovely location and nice interior. The place was empty just before 8pm. First course cold tomato soup was very nice but the main course was dreadful. The prawns were undercooked and hadn’t been clean so I couldn’t eat them, the bits of ham looked like old leather, horrid. The waiter apologized but we were still charged for it, 2 x soup, 2 x inedible tagliatelle and 2 x glasses of wine €50, very poor value. Would stop by again during the day for a drink but won’t be eating there again.

Calamari score 7/10 We drifted around for a few minutes until we sat ourselves down. After that service was ok. The restaurant looked a bit more utilitarian than in the photos above, had more of a cafe feel. Ordered calamari and tortilla, but were told after the calamari was half eaten that they didn’t have any tortilla left. Hmmm. All in all, nice place, cappuccino was excellent, great location on the beach. We’d go back.

Drove down the lLa Manga Strip looking for somewhere to eat out and this was the only place we found that was not and pizza or burger place but traditionally Spanish. Lovely setting on the Mar Menor and a great find. We had the paella and it was lovely. Service was ok especially as they were busy and they managed to find us a table as we hadn’t booked.

A great evening for all 90+ guests after wedding in local RC Church. Beautiful and romantic photos on he lagoon beach…a great venue for a wedding or any other celebration. Lovely dinner served in upstairs banqueting suite. Friendly and obliging staff. Good local bus service every 30 minutes.

My family and I were looking for a nice spot to enjoy lunch together and following some intense research, settled on Area due to its excellent location on the beach and great online reviews. Unfortunately the location is the only, and I do mean only thing going for it. I try to be balanced with my reviews, as everyone has different tastes and expectations but I think I can state with confidence this restaurant was dreadful. We had booked in advance, so being seated was fast and the table itself situated right on the beach next to a fan, so we had every reason to feel optimistic. Unfortunately our high hopes were mercilessly, relentlessly crushed by a succession of truly woeful dishes of such ineptitude, they would be discarded uneaten by a starving, rabid animal. Thankfully a picture is worth a thousand words, which will save me a long time and you a wasted lunch, my photo evidence is attached.

Just awful service. It was a morning session that we went and there were two table outside and 4 staff. It was clear the male owner had no interest in doing business of foreigners. He feigned not speaking English which is highly unlikely. It took us about 45 mins to order a drink and some breakfast. No menus given to us, just guess what's on the menu......then it took another 45 mins to get us out food and drinks after multiple chasing. With the 4 staff, they were operating as if the restaurant had 100 people in. The glasses and plates were piled high, the tables uncleared. It was one of the worst places I've ever been to in Spain. Lovely location and view though with a nice outdoor area. They basically milk their location and forget about what they're there to do ie serve customers. We didn't go back.

We travelled for an hour to watch the sunset at this restaurant however it was cloudy so there wasn't one. They took us to a table outside which was quite pretty however, it is right next to the beach so there is people swimming and sat right next to you. They give you bread on being seated which we later found out they charged us for. We also found out as we got the bill that we were charged an extra 10% to sit outside even though we weren't asked if we would like to. We ordered the sea bass so they said to have one to share which ended up being an extra €10. The food was average however nothing special. The wine was expensive. The service was decent but overall we felt mislead and taken advantage of.

My husband and I ate here last night. It was a chilly winters evening with a strong breeze coming off the sea. The waiter repeatedly went out onto the patio wedging the door open. The restaurant had no heating and we were freezing. We ordered two different soups to start. They arrived quickly and were clearly out of a carton and freezer with a bit of added garnish. Typical of a less good, cheap lunch time menu del dia. My husband had just started his soup when his main course fish arrived to be just left to get cold on the table. He had nearly finished it when my main course arrived. About this time the waiter got distracted by one of the two other tables that were occupied sending food back repeatedly. There was a very grim atmosphere in the place and no background music. At one point a customer behind us said loudly that she would never eat there again. We decided at this point to call it a day and asked for the bill..four times. Our bill was very expensive and not worth a fraction of the nearly 100€ that we paid. In decades of visiting Spain I can’t say that I’ve been as disappointed and annoyed as I was last night at this dining experience. There are plenty f good restaurants in La Manga but Area Sunset is certainly not one of them.

Total flop! With just the two of us for lunch, we were really hoping for a better experience. The first course took quite long to show up, even though the place didn't seem too packed and there were plenty of waiters around (4 of them came to our table as soon as we sat). Then, when our duck and ribs finally made it to the table, the ribs were barely warm. We told our waiter, who took them back, but it took so long that my partner had already finished his meal before they were brought back to the table. The waiter kept saying sorry, which is nice, but it doesn't feel like quite enough. Maybe he could've tried to make it up somehow, like offering a different dish, especially since one of us ended up leaving without having lunch at all. Definitely our first and last time there!

This restaurant is absolutely beautiful. The location just literally off the beach is amazing. Staff were extremely friendly and we wanted to have a drink before dinner. They never rushed us and then we called them when ready. The tapas for starters were delicious and we both had fish which was beautifully presented and delicious. We also went for dessert which was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant it’s so relaxing staff are excellent and above all the views especially at sunset are spectacular. It’s not really expensive not for what we got. Well worth it and there’s plenty of parking if you’re driving. Love this restaurant and will definitely be back. Lovely night. Thanks.

Venue had the door open for the entire duration of our stay and we was very cold, we had to keep our coats on. The food was not the best and the bread tasted of oily fat. Quite like a Chiringuito smell. Won’t be tempted to go back any time soon. The plates were ice cold so the hot food went very cold quickly.

Called here on spec for lunch. Big restaurant with lots of tables over looking the bay. Staff very attentive and service quick. My wife and I ordered the sea food dish for two. €65. We weren’t disappointed. It came full of shell fish “lobster, prawns, bigger prawns, scallops”. All cooked in a bouillabaisse sauce, and a side of breads and garlic butter. All the tools for opening shell fish. If you don’t like getting stuck in with your fingers, don’t order this meal as it can get messy. Me personally, I loved it. Despite the some of the bad reviews, we couldn’t fault it. Give it ago. 👍

Extremely disappointing!!! One of us had the sea bass and the other the chicken carbonara and we were both shocked at the standard of food. We were sat down and baring in mind this place was rammed with customers I would say 50-70 people so we thought our food would be at least an hour. Well it took less than 15 minutes and it tasted that way too. The bass had been pre cooked and re heated it was not Fresh 100% I have eaten bass all over the world and this was horrendous!! My friends food was also very bad chicken was over cooked dry and chewy in his carbonara so we left very prematurely very poor food

The place is in a great position and we sat and watch the sunset over the Mar Menor, however the food wasn't as good. We ordered a bottle of wine and the cork split so the waitress pushed the cork into the bottle and then wanted to serve the wine. We ordered paella, which was ok. Recommendation visit this place for a drink and the view then eat somewhere else.

I stay opposite the restaurant 1stcweek November.I visit a number of times,most evenings for the sunset and twice for evening meals. Great place to eat smart and modern design with the added sunset in November 1st week around 1800. I thoroughly enjoyed my visits price is reasonable,staff all very polite accomodating. I would definitely recommend I look forward to another trip to the area in Spring.
