Phone: 968 697 209Thisrestaurant is set in the Valley of Ricote, a 15-minute drive from Murcia, in asmall village surrounded by lemon groves. Despite being enormous, you will need to book a table in advance because it is extremely popular with locals. You are also advised to have nothing to eat for at least 5 hours before your meal (and for alot longer afterwards !!) as portions are very generous. A mixture of traditionaland creative cuisine which can be as surprising as it is delicious. The desert is not that great, but by the time you arrive at them you can't really fit themin anyway.
