We normally have the menu de'l dia but we chose the a la cartel for a change. We received a little tasty bite... More

A consolidated and well-known gourmet place to taste varied dishes. The food from surrounding field and sea has no equal elsewhere. The rate price-quality is excellent, and the site, wonderful. Try it asap.

I've eaten here four times now over the years. The first time left a big impression, everything was great and I've always wanted to go back. Then once I had a midday menu del día and it wasn't quite as good as I was hoping. But we went back for a work meal in June and everything was superb! The... More

Recommendations from two Spanish friends whilst playing golf at La Manga Club last week took me to take my wife to La Marquesita in nearby Cartagena Spain. Located off a side street it had a quirkily nice frontage and very welcoming. Menu del Dia at €20 each featured some of the al la carte menu. I had the best salad... More

A delightful restaurant with a lovely garden for most of the tables. Large varied menu with high quality food and table settings etc. Attentive and professional staff. We got there at 8pm , just when it opened. By 9pm it was very full but this didn't detract from service. May need to book if you want a latish table. Fabulous!

We visited Cartagena with a cruise ship, but had research La Marquesita, knew we wanted to have lunch here. We had a wonderful lunch in their garden. Tried several types of tapas', one better than the next. Had the best sangria of all our stops in Spain and ended our wonderful lunch with a complimentary bottle of cava. Wonderful restaurant...
