Below are details of some restaurants that we have visited and enjoyed. Most restaurants are a matter of personal taste, however, this guide may help you choose somewhere to dine. For the most part we have our children with us (although we sometimes sneak away alone), and as such we have tried to indicate which ones we feel are more suitlable for the little ones (age 2 - 14). This isn't based upon whether they serve chicken nuggets, more, how accomodating they are for children. We hope you enjoy our selection................
Mason Marianos, Camposol

Located near the Commercial Centre on Camposol - Mason Marianos is a good sized restaurant and is open all year round.

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. Try the "Wild Boar in Truffle Sauce" - it's an absolute delight (and a snip at 14 euros). Take care though if they offer you a sample of local fish as a starter. It's very nice but they charge you 20 euros and it's not worth it.

The Hong Kong, Puerto de Mazarron
If you crave a Chinese whilst you are away there are plenty to choose from in and around the Port.The Hong Kong is situated close to the middle of the Port as you head South out towards Bolnouevo on the main road. The food is nice and very reasonably priced. We found the service to be excellent and our children were made to feel very welcome.
La Siesta, Bolnouevo
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. As you can see from the pictures, 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!
Playa Grande Hotel, Puerto de Mazarron

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.

Casa del Nono, Isla Plana

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 (right). We find that no matter how much you ask you can't get a "well done" steak in Spain - this way you get to cook it yourself.

For me though, a personal favourite here is the duck in orange sauce. I've never tasted duck like it. It seems to be a more "gamey" taste than back home.


JP's, Puerto de Mazarron

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 realy be suitable.

The picture opposite isn't the best and doesn't really do the place justice, more a snapshot so that you will recognise the building from the road.

The Australian Bar, La Azohia

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 I presume 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.

Once you there you will agree I'm sure that the treck was worth it. The views accross the bay of Mazarron are stunning (as can be seen from pictures opposite).

Enjoy a cool beer and some tapas whilst looking out at the view.....................

The bar has a limited menu, mainly sandwhiches and tapas, but what they do serve is very nice. The seating is mostly outside and its fine for the kids. It seems to have some strange opening hours, but if you go at lunch time you should be ok.

Casa Colora, Mazarron

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 even look closed - but trust me).

They serve a varied menu but have a couple of specialities that are worth a try. You have to order them the day before and there are minimum numbers. They are slow roasted lamb (4 people) and roast suckling pig (6 people). The latter comes whole as can be seen form the picture opposite.

They also do some nice seafood (locally caught and fresh of course), as well as a range of steaks etc. They are fine with children having a young boy of their own, who will often join in any games.

Just give Pepe a ring (968 43 74 10) and let him know what you want. II guarantee you will be greeted with a warm reception.

Virgin De Mer, Puerto de Mazarron
Ok, for those of you that are mising home and want a roast beef dinner or pie and chips whilst playing Bingo - this is the place for you! There are two restaurants of the same name in the Port, so take care. They are both on the front but this one is along the promenade heading North. It's almost at the end of where the restaurants are. Food is nice enough but not at all Spanish. Pleasant enought though.
Tapas Bar In Tallante
A restaurant/tapas bar/delicatessence in Tallante first one you come to after passing the Las Pallas turnurn off. Its on your right and has a large car park at the the rear thro' a ginnel. Always well frequented by Spanish.
