  1. AT LAST, A DECENT INDIAN RESTAURANT IN THE MOJACAR AREA, I HAVE LIVED HERE FOR 20 YEARS AND LOVE INDIAN FOOD, LAST SUMMER A NEW INDIAN RESTAUARANT OPENED AT LAS BUGANVILLAS, BETWEEN GARRUCHA AND VERA. I DECIDED TO TRY IT, (AS A LAST RESORT) AS I LOVE INDIAN FOOD, BOY WAS I IN FOR A TREAT, THE ONION BHAJEES WERE THE BEST I HAVE EVER TASTED, THE PORTIONS WERE BIG, THE FOOD VERY TASTY, ITS NICE TO HAVE A VINDALOO AND STILL TASTE THE FOOD, I WENT WITH 3 OTHER FRIENDS WHO WERE ALL MORE THAN SATISFIED WITH THERE DINNER, EVEN THE DESSERTS WERE ALL HOME MADE. SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT, I WAS A BIT DUBIOUS WHEN I WALKED IN TO SEE AN ENGLISH LADY BEHIND THE BAR, BUT SHE WAS VERY WELL INFORMED OF EVERYTHING ON THE MENU AND VERY EFFICIENT AND FRIENDLY, WE HAVE BEEN BACK TIME AND TIME AGAIN AND WONT GO ANYWHERE ELSE NOW. THE RESTAURANT IS CALLED THE GOLDEN AMRITSAR AFTER THE CITY IN INDIA WHERE THE CHEFS ORIGINATE. THE RESTAURANT IS CLEAN AND NICELY DECORATED WITH COLOURFUL PRINTS ON THE WALL. ON 2 OCCASIONS WHEN I HAVE BEEN THERE, THERE WERE INDIAN PEOPLE IN THERE EATING, THAT TO ME SAYS IT ALL REALLY,

  2. Wonderful, friendly restaurant and Bar… Los Limoneros located in Cortijo Grande…I have been coming to the golf course for more than 25years and always had a wonderful time with the characters in Cortijo Grande. You can find them hanging out in the bar Limoneros there most afternoon and eveings. Food is just fine and the staff are oustanding. Julie and Mark are great so friendly and accomodating and doing their utmost to make a success of this ever changing surviving restaurant. You can always note that if you have been there before the amazing Gavin ( a comical chap with a great personality ) will remember what drink you like best… but be nice to him or he’ll bite your head off. Try it but don’t expect anything posh ….be yourself and you’ll just fit right in…Bring your swim suits and take a kool dip in the pool……..

  5. I have an apartment in Mojacar Playa which is regularly let to holidaymakers. I have always recommended the La Cabana Argentinian Restaurant on the Playa as an excellent special night out for clients.

    However, I have just had some clients return from Mojacar telling me that not only had the prices of steaks increased hugely (in euros) but also the sizes were substantially less. They felt it was now not worth the money.

    Was their experience just a one-off, or have other people found the same? It may be that I need to revise my recommendation.

    Thanks

    Paul

  6. The operators of La Cabaña got kicked out when their lease ended, and the landlord reopened with his own staff (taking advantadge of a good thing, obviously).
    The operators have now reopened in a nice restaurant in Pueblo Diana, in front of El Levante

  7. Hello. Thanks for the comment, but this was at the moved Cabana in Pueblo Diana, not at new lookalike in the original premises.

    Until now our recommendation to use Cabana has always been successful. But if the euro price of a fillet has risen so hugely and if the steak is also smaller, I am reluctant to recommend again as being worth it. I’m trying to find out if my guests’ experience was just a one off, or if others had found the same.

    I would like the Playa to have a mixture of food prices from low (so that families can afford to eat out) to high (for a special event). But certainly my guests (who had been to Cabana several times over the years in its original location) felt as though it had now become extremely overpriced.
    Regards

  9. why are builders allowed to dump their rubbish here in these beautiful andalucian mountains!!?? I am stunned and disgusted!! I walk for miles with my dogs up and down the mountain paths and im absolutely amazed at the most inaccessible mountain creveses that builders rubble is dumped at, (i wouldnt have thought even a donkey could manage to get up the mountain never mind a van!). Its a shame that authorities turn a blind eye to this, and i do mean a ‘blind eye’ it is blatently obvious when you see the waste rubble dumped round the edge of the Cortijo Grande Golf resort car park. Not only is this an eyesore and ‘blot on the landscape’ Its an accident waiting to happen with chunks of concrete with wire sticking out, old rusted remains of metal dustbins stuck out of the ground,glass, bricks,metal frames etc, non of which is bio degradable!!!And all dangerous to humans,dogs and wildlife!
