Murcia, Alicante, Cartagena

I'll be visiting this area for the first time in early September. Does anyone have any knowledge of good/interesting places, either low or high end? Any tips or suggestions most gratefully received...

  1. see below post regarding murcia...the restaurant that butterfly named is terrific, right on the water in cartagena. If you can call ahead and ask for a multi-course meal, the chef will do a fabulous job for you....

    1. El Barrio san Roque in Cartagena (old town) is excellent, used to live in Cartagena and visited several times, always top quality food.(Expensive end)
      Restaurante Loreto in Jumilla is very good and has a good taster menu for about 25€ and also excellent wine in Jumilla.
