A bonus were the dips served with the first course and the (... More

Everything about this restaurant is good. The service is so friendly you feel like you have been there a 100 times.The seafood pancakes and vol~ u~vents excellent. We have been there at least 10 times now slowly working down the menu which will take a while.

The food is very good, had soup, then Pork in almond sauce, and typical Spanish dessert..Natillas. House wine was ok as was the price. I would go again but it's nothing special..ok for a mid week no frills meal.

We have heard from friends who live in Torremolinos, this place to be a very good value offering a groupon voucher. Unfortunately the vouchers were no longer available through groupon, but we still decided to give it a try. The food is all right. the setting is fabulous - frontal seaviews compensate the drawbacks.

Very good views, the sunny side of the boulevard, so is à good spot to have à dinner. The service was good if à bit overwhelmed by a large nummer of tables. We ordered Some meat and a starter to share, all were all right. A good spot, better food than many comparable restaurants in this area.

Visited for our first time with friends who have used this restaurant for years. Wish they'd told us of this place before now! What a lovely warm welcome, the 3 course menu for 15.95 euros had a great choice for each course and was excellent value for money. Portion sizes were generous, presentation above average and flavours blended well. A... More
