So much delicious food

I was introduced to Don Canape by my sister and brother in law on Sunday night (just gone). There was myself, my partner and my two sons aged 4 and 10 along with my sister and her husband. We ordered the 17Euro menu with a choice of spaghetti, cordon bleu, salmon, prawn cocktail, and wine beer or... read more

I wrote a review on this restaurant two years ago, it was excellent then and it is excellent now. I have written in my previous review of how we were introduced to this restaurant twenty five years ago by a Danish man and we have been going there since. On one of the many times we dined there on our... More

It was 7 years since we last visited this restaurant, it was great then and it still is. Superb service superb food. However, the quantities are not for the faint hearted. I hate not being able to clear my plate but had to admit defeat on the two occasions we went there last week. Over the last 29 years that... More

I went to this restaurant 22 years ago and had to go back when I came to Torremolinos again. The food If anything was better than I remember. Great service, excellent value but one word of warning. Make sure you are hungry before going because you get large portions and excellent quality. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant... More

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.
