Now is the time to try and enjoy the restaurants of Torre Pacheco with summer well and truly over the local restaurants really come into their own.

Only 5 minutes from Mar Menor Resort and 15 from La Torre Resort, the "El Huerto del Azafran" is one that we recommend.  Here you will meet Santiago (the owner) who will guide you through the fantastic menu of home-made local cuisine in English explaining every course including "What the locals eat" allowing you to try foods you may never attempt because you “don't know what it is”.

Santiago and his team are extremely accommodating and offer a great level of service in a wonderful location.  The restaurant is classy and with prices that won't break the bank you just have to give it a go.

From the various rice dishes on offer to the meats, fish and sea food plus an extensive wine list with some local wines and cavas (the  local cava I tried was better than some Champagne I’ve had!) followed up with your choice of Copas*.

They also have a “Menu del Dia” (Menu of the Day) during the week days and special ones at the weekend which are all very reasonable and in the evening you can choose the evening menu or just leave it to Santiago and his team to guide you through the “A la Carte” menu.
