Superb!

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... read 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.

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
