Had been before to the original Torremolinos restaurant and enjoyed the atmosphere and food, and has now moved to a more modern setting with the still great and different dishes. The tapas here are more modern Spanish than the traditional types of dishes elsewhere, with some interesting presentations and options. We went with a group of friends, some who now... More

On a day trip tp Torremolinos we ate here for lunch and thought the food was very good. Despite the place being very busy we didn't have to wait too long to be served. The service we received was lovely and we would definitely visit again.

While the rest of Torremolinos is stuck in the 1960/70 this place serves modern tapas that are not the usual formulaic choices. The only problem we had was the menu was too long with too many items making it hard to select! The best dinner we had in during our holiday and reasonable prices.

There is a reason why this place is always hopping - the good food! Delightful modern eatery serving a new style of tapas even though it proudly proclaims that it is not a tapas bar. The menu is enormous and caters for every food need. The staff (Mehdi in particular was most most helpful is helping tapas novices like yours... More

Amazing variety, but the menu is so so large by the time you have reached end one has completely forgot what was at the beginning. We ordered several dishes and they were very nice, but clearly frozen. And then the bill came... In our opinion much to expensive for frozen pre cooked dishes. Nice atmosphere and service a pity about... More

Tried a few Tapas dishes and they were all sooo good! We were there rather early in the evening, around 8 perhaps, and the staff was almost like they weren't really there yet because the service was not too good.

We visited the old location in Torremolinos 2 years ago and on a recent trip to Benalmadna we decided to play it another vist, and just by accident we stubble accross the new location on the main road as we got off the bus. Whilst I loved the old restaurants style and ambience, the new venue is modern and stylish.... More

My Spanish friends live in Torremolinos and took me to this restaurant which was amazing. I believe it is a chain, but if you would like some good tapas I fully recommend this restaurant. It is on the main road in Torremolinos...very easy to find and brilliant food.

The restaurant has recently moved to this new location and have made a much more modern design with a great outside patio area on the first floor. The food is very good most times I have been here. The staff are sometimes really good or sometimes pretty bad and need some more training as seem to forget orders placed and... More
