“Very nice Spanish food and perfect service”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

A very nice restaurant on a nice square. The tree in the middle of the square is huge and beautiful. The menu is nice with a lot Spanish specialities. A lot of locals were eating there. He waiter was such a nice guy. The food was very nice and we had a lovely evening. Price wise it is a bit expensive but the quality is definitely there.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

On this occasion we sat inside , still a great ambience with service to match. Interesting menu, reasonably priced and the choice of wines superb.
On my next visit I am going to have 2 starters, the aubergines with honey were the best ever.
Going back next week......
Hopefully warm enough to sit on the terrace.

“Best in Mojacar”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

I've visited Mojacar regularly over the last few years and after discovering this charming and atmospheric place I have returned again and again. It's always busy with locals. Beautiful location - ate outside under the canopy of a large tree, watching the bustle and life go by. I've past many hours here watching evening become night. Tapas is the best in Mojacar and the knowledgeable waiter recommended some delicious scallops - he said that they were so good he'd eat them himself if we didn't want them! Great wine selection and the waiter made recommendations to go with food. They do a great paella too!

“Meet Andrès”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

This bar is ideally located by a beautiful square in Mojacar Pueblo and offers simple but very nice food. We particularly appreciated the attention of the staff. One of them was Andrès who spent time recommending some of their specialities and was really friendly. We had a very good time there.

“The Freshest Fish Ever”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

I asked someone in The Pueblo where the best restaurant was as it was my birthday the following day. They recommended Minguito´s, so we went to book for the following night. On arrival the following night the boss was not yet there. However, we spoke to another guy and I said that I wanted the John Dory fish, which that night they did not have. However, as it was my birthday (and unbeknown to us at the time) they sent word to Garrucha, where the fishing boats come in (about 15 minutes drive), and arranged for one, yes ONE, fish to be delivered straight to the restaurant. They then presented it to us, cooked it and we ate the freshest fish we have ever eaten anywhere. It was only afterwards that one of the waiters told us what they had done. The service was fantastic, the food superb and the lengths they went to for my birthday were above and beyond. I would definitely never describe this as a snack bar. This is a bar with restaurant attached, and very good it is too. It is not the cheapest, but you do get what you pay for. Highly recommended by us for fish lovers.
