Standard, pleasant beach restaurant

The food here was good. A quick beach lunch here should be fishy and fresh and this was both. Service was professional and unobtrusive. None of the up-selling in other places. Meal for two with coffee, bread and a bottle of decent wine was under 40E. Very pleasant in the sun!

Tapas were OK, that's probably the best grade I can give this restaurant. But the location and the view over the Mediterranean Sea was amazing. Will certainly be returning for the view and the beach's sake

Chiringuito EL ESPETO Be very CAREFUL. Read below before deciding to eat there. My wife and I are 67 years old and respectable British Citizens.

This was also one of the better chiringuitos places in Torremolinos. We had an excellent cogollos (hearts of romaine with a warm dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lightly browned garlic. Also had very good sardines and shrimp pil-pil (in garlic oil). Good service.

Los Alamos was recommended by several locals as a nice beach with good food. Easy train ride from Malaga. Chiringuitos up and down the beach. Have to admit that we stopped here because of the combined aroma of hot coals and seafood. The food and service were wonderful. Grilled sardines - very simple, with coarse salt and a light brushing... More

I booked this restaurant for a lunch time birthday party and it was fantastic!! The seafood was fresh and very tasty, service super too. The staff are excellent . Could not find a fault. I would recommend this place every time ..... And it's right on the beach too.
