“If you want rustic food that tastes fantastic, then this is the place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

From the outside it looks like an industrial furniture shop/warehouse, but don't let this put you off. When I'm in Spain I eat here every day either for lunch or dinner I have never had a bad meal the food is plain and I don't mean in a bad way, it is reasonably priced and authentic. If only we had one in the UK. If the reviews state that the food took time to come out etc it's because the place is always packed with locals because the food is great. Can't wait for my next visit...

“Do not be put off by the outside appearance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

A very enjoyable experience- I had read previous reviews, so was keen to try it, but 'the family' did not like the look of it. However, on our last night we did go, and had an excellent meal, at reasonable cost, with a proper restaurant 'buzz'. Will definitely go again.

“Great Meat Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2011

Sister to El Patio II restaurant in Mar Menor, but City based in Murcia.
They can serve a great meal without "rushing" in under an hour!

We didn't try the speciality "Carne ala piedra" as we didnt have time,
but saw others eating and enjoying it a lot!
We had Solimillo (filet) with Requefort sauce great Patatas gratinado, washed down with a Sabatacha (jumilla) wine, a really fresh Salad and a home made dessert Pan de Calatrava with fresh Black coffee. 29€ each. Staff were friendly and the service fast.

Really good for Business lunches!

“Over-rated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2011

We visited here after reading tripadvisor and we were very dis-appointed. The steak was tough and you had to pay extra for the fries, we felt very much like a number and the restaurant wasn't particulary friendly.
