Restaurants in Murcia

Murcia, one of Spain's smallest and least known regions (apart from tourist destinations La Manga and Costa Cálida) is renowned all over Spain for its wonderful tapas dishes.


Many tapas recipes originate from this region, and many bars and restaurants in Murcia offer a mind-boggling selection of traditional Murcian tapas and local dishes whereas coastal restaurants take advantage of the Mar Menor and Mar Mayor and many serve excellent fish and seafood dishes.

Restaurants in Murcia

Rincón de Pepe
Apósteles, 34
Tel: 968 212 239
Murcia's most famous tapas restaurant, famous all over Spain. Anyone who visits Murcia must have a tapas meal in Rincon de Pepe. Always very full, but service is generally quick. For dessert try the Paparajotes, a Murcian delicacy made with the leaves of lemon trees. They are delicious and rare elsewhere in Spain. For a one-off visit, we recommend the Menú de degustación which gives you a taste of the restaurant's most popular tapas dishes. See further description in Spanish, Rincón de Pepe.
Palacete Rural La Seda
Vereda del Catalán
Santa Cruz
968 870 848
This restaurant is a 10-minutes drive from Murcia and is well worth a visit. Set in a 17th century building originally built as a wine bodega and then used as a silk factory. Tastefully decorated, this is an elegant restaurant specialised in modern cuisine using local ingredients. One of the most pricey restaurants in the region (menu degustacion costs 70 euros), but also one of the most elegant.
Arquitecto Cerdán, 7,
968 216 152
A firm favourite among Murcianos, the Hispano restaurant serves traditional dishes in a rustic, comfy atmosphere. Local stews, meats, tapas (of course) served with local produce from Murcia's market gardens. Home made desserts, friendly professional service and low prices. Highly recommended.
Pl. Puxmarina, 3
Tel: 968 219 955
Delightful restaurant divided into small dining areas on two floors. Innovative and traditional dishes using first class local produce chosen personally each day by the chef. Friendly and swift service and a good wine list.
Restaurante El Sordo
C/ Alhorbona s/n 30610 Ricote (Murcia)
Tfno: 968 697 209
This restaurant is set in the Valley of Ricote, a 15-minute drive from Murcia, in a small 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 traditional and creative cuisine which can be as surprising as it is delicious. The deserts aren't that great, but by the time you arrive at them you can't really fit them in anyway. The house wine is made locally.
Av. Constitución, 93,
Tel: 968 850 064
This restaurant is well worth the 6km. drive from Murcia (along the motorway). Attractive decor, friendly and professional service, a very good wine list with some interesting local wines (ask the waiter for advice according to what you order and how much you want to spend) and, most importantly, excellent food. Traditional dishes given a modern touch and made with first class local produce. Both meat and fish dishes are recommendable, as are the delicious grilled vegetables. And make sure you leave room for the the warm chocolate soufflé.
