We were in Spain with relatives for Christmas and decided on Boxing Day to go for a day trip to Mula and Lorca. It was sad, but interesting, to see the earthquake damage in Lorca. We were looking for somewhere for lunch when we stumbled across this gem. We were enticed by the board outside offering a €11 menu. We had shellfish soup, followed by monkfish in a prawn sauce, both of which were delicious. The chips that accompanied the monkfish were perfect home-cooked chips, not the nasty little (often frozen) french fries. Dessert was an OK chocolate cake. We drank beer, Estrella Galicia, which was really good and when it came to coffee were served cortados which were as good as any coffee I can remember (and were included in the price). The only thing I could criticise about the meal was that the bread was not fresh, but then it was the day after Christmas day and the whole town, including, presumably, the local bakery, was a bit sleepy. I've had cheaper menus in Spain, I've had menus that gave you more food but I can't remember getting such quality at such a low price. The other people sitting inside were a Spanish family eating paella. We wished we could go back and try some of their a la carte dishes to see if they were good, too. One thing to note: they don't seem to speak English but we got by with my "menu Spanish".
