Top steak and sea food!

This was very good Steak House. We had very tasty Rib-eye and sea food. The wine selection is amazing. This is a great place for fine dining. The service is excellent. Not the cheapest place but we recommend it.

I had a steak here with some colleagues and we were all very happy with our food and the service. The place is clean, contemporary with a broad menu, including some local favourites. Good service too.

We booked this restaurant for dinner in late March (saturday night) guided by recommendations on TA. They didn't open till 9pm so booked a table for two at that time. When we arrived we were the only two diners. It is a trek from Malaga centre by taxi and the views are fantastic but we came to eat not look... More

We have just had lunch here with a couple of friends who were visiting Malaga on a cruise. We had to have lunch quite early so they could return to the ship on time, so we arrived at 1:30 pm and were warmly greeted and shown to our table. We had a lovely view over Malaga down to the port.... More

A wonderful lunch that scored on all points. A great welcome, friendly and knowledgeable staff, beautiful setting - stunning views over Malaga - and clean wooden stylish look inside and, even more, the food was delicious and good value.Slightly off the beaten track but certainly worth discovering.

Friendly place with good wine choice and amazing fresh sea food. It is not the cheapest place in malaga but it is worth every cent. Highly recommend!

We found this restaurant on trip adviser (as usual) and were not let down. My wife had the Porte antiquario for starter and I had white asparagus with mayonnaise and both were excellent. We went on to have steaks and my wifes was not quite well done enough but they cheerfully took the food back and cooked it bit longer.... More

I found this restaurant on TA and took a bit of a risk, as there are not many reviews, and many not in English ! However, I wanted somewhere with a nice view in the sunshine, as many of the restaurants in the Malaga old town don't get any sun, so fingers crossed. Its about a 10 minute taxi ride... More
