Restaurants in Murcia
No Murcia villa holiday is complete without plenty of time to relax, barbecue and, of course, wine and dine in the local area's restaurants.
The most popular place to go for local dining is the Balneario Plaza or Rio Borines street in the new town of Los Alcazares, which is an entire area of the town devoted to bars and restaurant that has a real buzz in the summer months. Here are just a few local restaurants you could try...
In the centre of Los Alcazares is a cosy, traditional Spanish restaurant. Ideal for a romantic dinner for two.
El Patio is a warm and welcoming Spanish restaurant that offers a unique dining experience. The menu offers a range of starters including warm garlic bread and fresh salads. For main course there is a selection of meats that are cooked in front of you on a large indoor barbeque in winter months and outdoors in the summer. There is a choice of lamb, pork, chicken and fish, accompanied by garlic potatoes and a house wine.
