We visited on a lunchtime for the spectacular views of the beach whilst you're eating - we weren't disappointed! My husband had the el cid burger and chips and was happy with his meal I had the sea bream which was nice but for €12 I was expecting more (you can get a three course menu of the day along... More

We were recommended El Cid after a 17 year gap from our last visit to Mojacar, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the food was fresh and delicious, right on the beach with sunbeds for hire, a totally relaxing couple of days and would recommend.

Located on the main road running along the coast through Mojácar Playa & abutting the beach. Access is via a roadside entrance & down approximately 10 steps into the bar. Once inside there are further split-levels with white tables & lime green chairs which are reasonably well spaced apart & with a row of bar stools in front of the... More

Came here on the first day of our holiday to celebrate my partners birthday. We had a few drinks with some family members that worked locally, the atmosphere was great in here and was very busy. This bar is right on the beach so a lot of the customers were from the beach getting refreshments. The family had some snacks... More

Loved sitting here overlooking the beach and sea, but it has to be said, atmosphere not as we imagined, and although the board displayed cocktails, whichever one we requested they couldn't provide, and we ended up having very expensive Martini and lemonades....they need to up their game if they wish to attract more custom, there were only half a dozen...

El cids used to have a more rustic charm and having visited numerous times over the years I was surprised by its refurbishment. That is no slight on the bar in the slightest however, all places need updating eventually especially as many newer beach bars have opened over time. The new look is in keeping with the older style but... More

Used to be one of the best beachbars in Mojacar, sadly gone downhill under new owners. Visited on a quiet Sunday afternoon, first thing the waiter did was explain a long list of things that were NOT available as they had been busy!!! Then noticed the price of the Dorada (sea bream) had been increased on the menu by 2.50€... More

Sadly lacking its previous good feel. Intrusive flamenco music and poor atmosphere. No bustle. Really sad.

This beach bar is an institution. LLyod and Tish ran this bar hands on for I guess 40 years and it continues to be an unpretentious and great place where your great afternoon lunch can often run through to a great evening aided by great mojitos, lethal Brugal rum and a steady run of clients all here for the fun....
