We found this restaurant by exploring a side street just up from the beach in Torremolinos. It proved to be a nice exception to the overly touristy restaurant scene. Although it bills itself as "the little garden", the garden, which features nice al fresco dining, is actually quite large. We went there twice and enjoyed the food, which allows for... More

Superb food - which is, let's face it, the primary reason we all go out to eat, right? Home cooked food made with love - you know when food is made this way. Lovely location off the main road in a slightly sunken garden. A wonderful warm menu with a wonderfully warm crew in a warm location. Just up from... More

I'm glad that I didn't see some of the reviews of this restaurant before I went there as I mightn't have chanced a visit as a result. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere here on our first visit. So much so that we paid a 2nd visit during our week-long stay in Torremolinos. We found the staff and... More

We visited this restuarant for our wedding anniversary. The food was very good. My husband is a fussy eater, but he really enjoyed the food. The portions are also very generous and presented well. The service is a bit slow but this gave us time to enjoy the company. The food is quite pricey, but overall a lovely restuarant.

El Pequeno Jardin is a cozy and friendly Danish restaurant I’ve visited several times before. Very good food and huge portions! I got the best Gambas Pil Pil I´ve ever had which is strange considering this is a Danish restaurant

This is a nice restaurant to eat in on a warm evening as most of the tables are outside and it has little lights strung around which add to the atmosphere . But as far as the food is I think it is overpriced. We didn't have a starter and I ordered pan fried sole which I asked if it... More

Came across this lovely restaurant whilst strolling around Torremolinos and we're so glad we did. The food was delicious and the setting was relaxing, in fact we enjoyed our first visit so much we went back a second night!
