“A nice surprise! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

When a restaurant is attached to a hotel it is often a bit pricey because of the convenience. Not Las Vinas. We had a delicious paella prepared freshly, the service was great and the people very friendly. Both Spanish and tourists eat there. Happy to recommend it to anyone.

“Good food, nice people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the Carlos III hotel, which Las Vinas is part of and tried the restaurant because it was convenient and we were tired after our trip. We asked for seafood paella but the chef said today it would be chicken, not seafood. Then he came back and offered to make a mixed chicken and seafood paella with prawns and calamari. He warned it would be a 30 minute wait, and we said so much the better! He laughed and came back 30 minutes later with an amazingly good paella. We went back for more meals after, and all were great.

“Cooked to Order !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

Very nice restaurant / bar / cafe sharing the courtyard with the Carlos III Sercotel Hotel.

Cooked me pasta with a vegetarian sauce "off menu" with no fuss. Excellent food and very friendly staff.

If you are staying at the Carlos III then have a meal here.

“Juaqim and Maribel's new home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013 via mobile

It was great to see Jaquim and Maribel in their new restaurant in Cartagena. Last year they ran La Pelegrina in Sucina and they were brilliant! The new place in the city centre in Cartagena lacks La Pelagrina's stunning location, but J&M light the place up! J prepared his excellent spicy garlic gambas for me. They aren't on the menu, but there were ten large juicy prawns in a delicious spicy garlic sauce - you'll need extra bread so as not to waste a drop!!! After that I had Lang chops with spring onions and then a complimentary plate of homemade chocolate brownies and an American style cheesecake with a biscuit base. All in all, delicious!!! Worth seeking out!
