Merendero Padilla

Reviewed By Shirley H

We visited this cafe on the recommendations read on this site, slightly difficult to find due to the railway line on the map! Better to find the plaza de toros and then park and walk though the park, you will hear it before seeing it!
The service is good. It the food is everything with e wry thing soaked in old cooking fat and tasting of curry. It's cheap you get what you pay for. Bread is with everything, along with chips. don't go dressed up or with high heels ha....the ground is pea shingle and the plates are collected in a large trolley and. Rated back to the kitchen....a kiosk is located for paying at the end of the meal and on your way out. An experience. It won't be going again.

Paredes Lorca

Reviewed By SuBearder - Puerto Lumbreras

In an unlikely place for sure and probably not for a passing by kind of experience. None should wish to hurry lunch here - Spanish people eat their primary meal at lunchtime - not cheap BUT fantastic food and wine (has own wine cellar). Service impeccable. Nothing I have come across in Lorca is in the same category. And spanish business men do lunch here....

Venta Cristobal

Reviewed By Di_M_11_11 - Hindhead, England, United Kingdom

This hotel/restaurant/shop is five minutes away from our apartment in Spain so it is really our local. The village is tiny. In fact, all there is in the village is this hotel/restaurant/shop and a petrol station. Therefore, the restaurant also serves as the gathering place for locals to play dominos or watch football on the Television. The food is basis but beautifully cooked and plentiful and since it is often impossible to finish the meal, they cheerfully give doggy bags (Para llevar = take away). We often come for tapas lunch and they have an enormous array of hot and cold tapas. We also come here at least once a week for evening meal. They specialise in barbecued meat and fish but also serve local stews, paella and other Spanish dishes. Their entrecote steaks cooked on the barbecue are fabulous - tender and succulent. As I like my steak rare, that is the norm in Spain so if you like yours well done, ask for "bien hecho" (well done). Even then, it may be just a bit over medium!! In Spain, they like their meat rare!!! The barbecued chicken is also a treat as is the Lubina (sea bass). Everything tends to come with friend potatoes and if you want vegetables, you need to ask for "verduras". What you will get is a huge portion of barbecued courgette, aubergine, onions, mushrooms and asparagus. For starters they do a lovely Murcian salad to share. We often have a small plate of Serrano ham and queso fresco, a soft unpasteurised Spanish goats cheese. Its a lovely combination. Ask for Alioli (garlic mayonnaise) to accompany the bread!!! Deserts are very Spansh, too. They do a crème caramel, which is called "flan", rice pudding, melon in Spring and summer and ice cream. At the end of the meal they serve a small shot glass of liqueur - either caramel vodka (fabulous) or the Spanish equivalent of Bailey's Irish Cream, accompanied by tiny pieces of chocolate covered ice cream.
On your way out, visit the little shop which sells groceries as well as fresh bread, cheeses, hams and Spanish wine. This place is like home away from home for us and when we walk through they door they treat us like long lost relatives!
The restaurant is very casual, there is a kiddies playroom and children often wander around the restaurant while their parents are eating

Pizzeria D'Antojo

Reviewed By 5_9_2_8 - Herts

We stumbled across this place, which was clearly very popular and thought that this would make a good change. It terms of place it is on the basic side, but this is more that made up for by the excellent service and good food. As pizzas go, these ones had an excellent coverage of toppings and were superbly cooked. There are lots of other menu options as well. All in all, a very good experience.

Polonia

Reviewed By Brian G - El Puerto de Mazarrón, Murcia, Spain

Well busy, great big comodor, well presented tables and very clean, a great start. We opted for the menu del dia but we noticed that most tables were taking the more adventurous menu options. The mdd offered only two options which is OK and the starters were very good. The second plate would have been more acceptable but for the chips on every plate being cold and soggy, inedible.
Postre was very nice. We will try it again but not anytime soon.

Albedrio

Reviewed By Joel019 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

We found this place while wondering around early evening in the centre of Lorca. What a beautiful setting in a small cozy square just off a larger piazza. It was not busy but within an hour every table was full, with locals. The tapas was delicious, the service was perfect. What a lovely authentic place and what a wonderful memorable evening. Excellent place.

Fifties

Reviewed By Gregory O

"Fifties" is a 1950's style American diner located just around the corner from San Diego railway station in Lorca.
Corner entrance: Step through a full length glass door & enter a "step back in time" atmosphere.
The interior is clean & nicely decorated in pink, mint green & fawn with a chequered dado border running around the whole diner.
Large bar with stainless steel counter & corrugated frontage runs along one side, whilst tables are laid out in rows along the opposite side of the diner. Seats upholstered in mint green & cream replicate "Cadillac" style bench seats.
Stools with silver "bottle tops" are situated in front of the bar. Flat screen TV's play classic black & white films above the bar (no volume), whilst popular "juke box" period music is played.
Walls decorated in period memorabilia eg: Vinyl records, electric guitar, "Coca Cola" fluorescent tube lights, signs & posters, etc.
Quirkiness of the place runs through to the toilets which are clean, tidy & fresh smelling. No mistaking the "ladies" & "gents" -both doors identified with large posters.
Staff: Dressed in period clothing are pleasant, polite, helpful & efficient.
Disabled/wheelchair friendly. Ramp at the entrance door & same level throughout the diner, including toilet access.
Menu's written in Spanish. Some English spoken.
Reasonable selection of: Starters, hamburgers, some specialities, hot dogs, chips (French fries), salads, sandwiches, desserts, milkshakes, alcohol, soft drinks & coffee.
This is a fast food diner with atmosphere. I have visited on a couple of occasions. An enjoyable experience. Give it a try.
