The Costa Calida Coastline
Eating out in Camposol
Food & Drink
In Spain the main meal is usually taken at midday, around 2 – 3 pm. At this time most restaurants offer an excellent Menu del Dia. For this you will pay around 9 euros and this includes your drinks !
If you eat in the evening and want to experience a truly Spanish atmosphere, don’t even think of going before 9.00pm. If you dine before 9.00pm you will be surrounded by foreigners and the atmosphere will usually be quiet. After this time families of locals will arrive to enjoy their evening out and they will be exuberant and noisy. This is when Spanish restaurants start to buzz. Children are welcome at all hours.
Along the coastal regions of Murcia it is always advisable to book a table for Sunday lunch. Throughout the year the popular restaurants are very busy on Sundays and you will have to wait a couple of hours for a table if you have not made a reservation.
Murcian cuisine is based on the ingredients readily available in the region; lamb, pork and goat feature on the menu, along with a wide range of excellent, fresh sea food. Although many vegetables are grown locally they tend to by-
Few restaurants serve fresh veg with the main course. Beware – first courses are often substantial and often are far more filling than the average British starter. It is not uncommon to find a menu of the day offering spaghetti Bolognese or paella as the starter, followed by a meat or fish course !brief escape from the gloomy winter weather.
Resturants & clubs
Located near the Commercial Centre on Camposol -
Great for lunch time tapas or "menu del dia" (menu of the day) which is usually a fixed price for a 3 course lunch and good value. They also offer an evening menu in the main restaurant.
Mason Marianos -
This is one of our favourites, being a short drive from Camposol, serving lovely food and wonderfully hosted by Pepe and his wife. Head out on the main road towards the Port and take the turning to Morata. Go along this road for a few kilometers and you will find Casa Colora on the right hand side. It doesn't look much (and may not upon closer inspection -
Casa Colora -
Just outside the port heading south on the main coast road towards Bolnouevo you will find the Hotel Playa Grande.
They serve the most delicious paella which you can eat whilst sat out on their terrace overlooking the beach and the sea. Very reasonably priced too.
Playa Grande Hotel-
JP's is situated in Puerto de Mazaron. If you head towards Bolnuevo you will find it on the left hand side of the road. The place itself is very smart and the food is aimed towards the top end of the market. We have never taken the children there and I don't think it would really be suitable.
Casa del Nono is situated on the left hand side on the main road through Isla Plana (cost road north of Puerto de Mazarron). It is a very popular restaurant and I would recommend that you book at weekends ( 968 152 056).
Try the steak on hot stone. We find that no matter how much you ask you can't get a "well done" steak in Spain -
Casa del Nono -
La Siesta is siuiated almost at the end of Bolnuevo, on the left as you drive through, right on the beach.The setting is lovely, you have the beach/sea on one side and the sand sculptures on the other. Service is first class, children are welcome and the beef stroganoff is definitely worth a try!
La Siesta -
Everyone refers to this place as "the Australian Bar" although I don't actually think that is it's name. It is decorated with cricket & Australian memorabilia, which is where it gets it's pet name.
It can be found by heading out of the Port North and onto La Azohia. You go past the small jetty in the village itself and you can see the bar up on the hill. You need to wind through a couple of small streets to get there. The bar has a limited menu, mainly sandwhiches and tapas, but what they do serve is very nice.
The Australian Bar -
Alley Palais -
The only family entertainment venue, with large bar area, bowling alley, pool tables, snooker room, arcade machines, snack / fast food area and regular LIVE DJ's its a far cry from your typical Spanish bar.
The Steak Out -
With a pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff, the restaurant offers an excellent dining experience, specialising Argentinean/English steaks and vegetarian cuisine while the huge bar area offers sky tv on the only large screen on camposol.
The only italian restaurant on Camposol offering a wide variety of pizza's, pasta's, salads & baguettes to eat in or take-
Whilst the port is well worth a visit you dont have to go far for some very nice resturants and meals. Camposol has some very good bars and resturants located on A and B commercial sectors.Here is just a few of these for your information, a quick trip and stroll round these after you first arrive is well worth the effort.
Here is a selection of the rest of the bars, resturants and take-
