Restaurante Salzillo

Reviewed By UncleDom - London, United Kingdom

Salzillo is one top class restaurant. I don't know where to start, service was impeccable, the staff were awesome and the food was amazing.
Arrived for my 22.00 reservation and sat down straight away, a fabulous bread selection was brought over (1.25 pp) and some requested still bottled water, no waiting around here. The menu is so good is really is hard to decide what to order.
Anyways, the tomato with tuna and lettuce leaf was good as were the croquetas but the artichoke with ham and prawn (5e) was delightful, great flavors and left me wanting more, it could have eaten it as a main course portion if it was available it was so good.
Mains of turbot was superb, served with a few veggies, but my sea bass was deboned in front of me and served with garlic slivers and potato, it was amazing, the fish moist, white, fresh and perfectly cooked, just wonderful. Did I say the staff were awesome as was the service.
For desert, the fried milk/ frita leche cubes were different, just like cold custard and served with ice cream , a melting chocolate soufflé was good but not outstanding, the starters and main courses made the meal so I was not disappointed.
On asking for the bill , it came straight away and after a few moments did the credit card machine, perfect, sometimes you wait forever to pay, the lady of the house surveyed everything and made sure it all worked well from her stand and top marks to her for running a top class restaurant, I highly recommend and would return next time in Murcia. It deserves it's high ranking in Tripadvisor, so do telephone and reserve a few days in advance, they do speak English , it's a real treat and you will enjoy it.

Reviewed By PhilandRuth - Aylesbury, United Kingdom

This little gem is just a stones throw from some lovely little squares in Murcia. The decor is modern and welcoming with seats around the bar where fish and delicacies are on view. The first time we went we sat at a raised bar style table which gives you a good overview of the restaurant, the second we were round the corner near the loos. The staff were friendly and helpful, although our daughter's Spanish helped a great deal. The food was absolutely delicious. The sea food was really fresh and tasty but of particular note (this was over 2 visits!) were the squid croquettes, tuna tartare on avocado, confit fish tomatoes, beef cheek, fresh fish, finished off with a selection of desserts - chocolate fondant, cheesecake and fresh fruit. Everything was beautifully presented. One word .. YUMMY! If you like your food this is for you.

Malena Restobar

Lo que somos... No somos el típico restaurante argentino aunque nos basamos, hace casi 5 años cuando abrimos nuestras puertas, en los nuevos centros gastronómicos (Núñez, Palermo Soho, Puerto Madero) que surgían en Buenos Aires con una cocina moderna, actual y de fusión, sin olvidar las técnicas tradicionales aprendidas de nuestras madres y abuelas. No somos el típico asador-parrilla aunque tratamos en su fuego las mejores materias primas. No sólo cocinamos carne aunque la que cocinamos es la mejor carne Angus traída desde Argentina. No sólo escuchamos tango aunque surgimos a raíz de uno de los tangos más bonitos: Malena. Nuestros clientes ha ido entendiendo durante este tiempo el tipo de restaurante que queremos ser y Gracias a su fidelidad seguimos aquí desde nuestra esencia y desde nuestra forma de entender Malena restobar. Gracias

We went to Murcia for other reasons but around dinner time we went into the old part of town. Around the corner from the Cathedral we found this establishment via TA.
We arrived 15 min before opening and could make a reservation. It turned out to be necessary. We started our meal with home made chicken fingers a caesar salad and argentian croquetes. All of excellent quality. The texture of the croquetes was a bit thick but when you like fish actually quit good.
Our main courses were. Solomillos from Angus and the Estreña from Angus. All the highest quality beef.
We finished with a home made brownie with ice and the so called coulant. We also had the surprise desert which was chocolate with fruit.
We would highly recommend this restaurant but keep in mind you will pay an average of about 30 E plus drinks per person.
Check our photos for what we ate and pls like my review.

We had sandwiches and they were delicious. I'll make sure to come back and try the emapanadillas and pizzas next time.Thanks for your review! The pizzas are original from Italy. From the chef who is from Naples until the ingredients are imported. The "empanadillas" are authentic Argetinas. I hope whenever you like! Best Regards!!
