Description: Our family run bar and restaurant opened in 2009 and since then, we have worked hard to make it one of the most popular bar restaurants in the Roda & Los Alcazares area. We are proud of our reputation for good food, value for money and friendly service in a warm inviting atmosphere. We offer a wide range of premium cuts of aged beef Sirloin, Rib-Eye, Fillet and Chateau briand (dry aged up to 21 days) fired up over hot coals, delivering perfectly cooked meat, with that moorish crispy seared finish. Alongside the steaks, guests can order a selection of poultry and locally sourced fresh fish. Our aim is to produce quality food at an affordable price, focusing on fresh local produce with every meal being cooked to order.

“Really starting to struggle in the face of better value competition”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

What a difference a year makes !

Campbells was always a great quality , if slightly expensive option in Roda village , but in the last year the great success of Roda's Bar in the village has clearly cost them a lot of business - and it shows

When we visited it wasn't anywhere near as busy as we had previously known.
The menu hadn't changed , but a number of items were not available.

They are clearly short staffed - with no waiters or waitress leaving Michael and Kieron to do all the work

This leaves them very stretched working both the bar and the restaurant and it materialises in very slow service

The chef has changed and the food quality had suffered - albeit at the still inflated prices

Sorry - the owners are great but if something doesn't change soon , it will be Roda's bar for us from now on

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Went to Campbells after reading the very positive tripadvisor reviews. First course was good, my wife had the pil pil prawns, I had the shredded duck. My main however, cod with potatoes and caramelised sweet chilli was awful. The potatoes were stale and clearly reheated, the cod was over cooked, the caramelised chilli wasn't, it was just finally chopped. I had a side salad which came without dressing, I asked for oil and vinegar and was brought olive oil and Sarsons! I said I had red or white wine vinegar in mind but was told they didn't have any. The cutlery was cheap and bent and did not match what the restaurant is trying to be in terms of style and price. The staff were friendly, the rose wine was good. I provided some feedback on my experience, was told that this would be fed back to the kitchen. No offer of reduction to bill. My wife said I should have known better than to have fish in what is clearly a steak restaurant. If you want fish and are in the area we strongly recommend Ramon's. Our other favourite in the area is El Patio 2.

“A night to remember”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

This is one of the best nights out in los alcazares. The food is great and well presented, all at a very reasonable price. Locals and visitors are all made welcome and the atmosphere and music all makes for a great night out.

“Meat just melts in your mouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Good food very well presented I must say and the meat was best ever. The deserts are to die for and we love the little bar attached to the restaurant.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

I took 18 people for dinner at Campbell's Restaurant to celebrate my Birthday last Friday. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and most attentive. Everyone was very impressed. It was great value for money and they even had entertainment in the bar afterwards.
Highly recommended.
