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.

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

It is modern and very attractive decor. Super friendly staff. The food was delicious, slightly too much olive oil on the grilled vegetables but the chicken skewers with peanut sauce were perfect. The lamb wrap took a little too long but the service was otherwise good.

The old Matahambre was in an old red brick building on a side street off Calle San Miguel, which is the main shopping street in Torremolinos but it closed last year (2013) and has now re-opened on the main street that runs through Torremolinos, in a very modern and nice building. The upstairs outdoor patio is the best place to... More

Went here for our friends 40th birthday meal, and what a meal ! Amazing choice of dishes on the tapas menu, which is where we chose from. Service was very good, efficient but not intrusive. Prices were really good for the quality of food and service, we paid less than 80 euros for a massive meal including 2 bottles of... More

Went here on advice from the waiter in the hotel as we were looking for a typical Spanish type tapas food. He advised us this is where a lot of the local people go. We arrived at 20:30 and there was already a waiting time of 30 minutes to sit outside with free table inside. Therefore we decided to eat... More
