They start with a tray (not a plate) of canapes on the house, what a treat. You just need a main course. Try the steak, if it is not right today he will tell you. Fish is also excellent.

Nothing can compare to the service. No nagging, just plain kindness from the owner. He alone is a reason to go to Torremolinos! The starters (canapes) are supergood. They, among other things, are on the house. (Sometimes champagne, sometimes baileys and other drinks). The best main courses are (in our opinion) pork and lambchops.

We ordered the menu del dia and were delighted with the value! The food was really quite delicious and certainly better than surrounding restaurants ! It was a hidden gem!

Twenty three years ago ( we have been visiting the Costa del Sol for twenty five years) we were strolling along the seafront one balmy evening in Torremolinos's Paseo Maritimo. We were studying the menus outside the various restaurants. A passer by stopped and asked us if we would like to get directions to one of the best restaurants on... More

We went here on the recommendation of a waiter in our hotel. Whilst waiting on our main courses we were presented firstly with a small plate of battered aubergines with a black honey (traditional around Malaga) sauce and then a huge serving platter of mixed canapes. We don't normally like aubergines and would never have ordered them but they were... More

We had a great meal there. I heard of the place from somebody I knew and we decided to try the place. Easy to find and centrally located near the beach. I could not believe the amount of canapés (starters) we were offered at no extra cost. Most of them were great and we had to watch ourselves not to... More

We went here once during our stay in Torremolinos based on the reviews on tripadvisor. I guess we didn't think it was a good as some are saying in terms of the quality of the food, but what everyone is saying about the free canapes at the start is very true. It was huge for the 2 of us, some... More
