One of the best restaurant in Elviria. Very elegant presentation and delicious food. If you are in the area do not hesitate to dine for lunch or dinner. I highly recommend!! Price is very reasonable specially if you dine before 7:30pm.

Easy to find just off the main highway between Elviria and Marbella. I got treated here by friends for a lovely lunchtime menu of 2 courses for €15. I had mushrooms pil pil with jamon and battered sole with lime. My friend had seared salmon. It was all delicious and well-presented. The decor is original with huge photos of famous... More

Stunning food, 6 of us went for Sunday lunch and there wasn't a morsel left at the end of it, everything from vegetable soup, seafood chowder, pate, and mushrooms in a Stilton sauce to roast beef, belly of pork and chicken roulade we all devoured. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone

We had a reservation here for Russian Old New Year and it was our first visit to this lovely restaurant. Frankly, I had quite low expectations for fixed price menu of 25 EUR in a such location like Elviria... Oh my God, how wrong I was! Not only the menu has been extremely varied, they have even sent me it... More

We have visited this restaurant a few times and never been disappointed. We always arrive before 7.30pm for the Early Bird menu which is 25euros for three courses. If you like mussels these are wonderful as a starter. The main courses are well presented, well cooked and generous. We can only speak about Eton Mess as a dessert because we... More
