“Great Italian Expectations”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

Having heard people rave about this place for many years, I finally had my first meal there tonight.

Located midway between the village and the beach, this place is both quieter than all and classier than most.

I'm happy to report that it surpassed every expectation. The service was both friendly and very efficient. The food is a fusion of Spanish local ingredients incorporated into classic Italian dishes.

Exquisite menu of fare to be had here to enjoy to the max. Perfect for any occasion and especially for those special feasting events.

“#1 Restaurant in Mojacar”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Went to our favourite restaurant for our teenage daughters birthday. As always superb fresh dishes, using quality ingredients and cooked to perfection. We asked Simone to make us a birthday cake and this year he provided a decorative masterpiece in chocolate! The place was buzzing but even though the restaurant was full (on a Tuesday, which is a tribute to Osteria's growing reputation) the service was great and the food it's usual excellent standard.
I have no idea how trip advisor ranks it's restaurants, but after coming to mojacar for 8 years 4 times a year, I can only suggest that they need to revise their system. This is by far the best food in town in terms of quality and value.

Do visit.

“Food great but so hot inside it was unbearable”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We visited here as it was on our villas list of places to go.
We had good food, average service but our main complaint was how hot it was inside, maybe the air con was faulty but it completely affected our meal.
Nice food but a shame we didn't enjoy it more.

“Always Delightful”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We have visited this restaurant several times and each time it has been exceptional. We have tried different dishes each time - all are well cooked and made from fresh, high quality ingredients. The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting with attentive staff - it has become our favourite in Mojacar. - Nicky P.
