Very good

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.

We went to this restaurant after hearing great things about it and had the best night out ever! The modern comfortable decor is great to see in this area of Torremolinos and we all felt we were in a high class restaurant but with very affordable prices. The staff's attention to detail was amazing as was proven when one of... More

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

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
