We ate here several times during our 10 day stay in Fuengirola. Tried superb paellas, skewers, tuna steak, pork, fried fish plate (pil pil to be tested next time!). Garlic breads and piccadillo salads as the starters were very tasty. Atmosphere very nice and staff is great. Starters are around 2-7eur, main courses 10-15eur and desserts 4eur so our family...

After reading the positive rewiews from the restaurant, we also wanted to try this cosy-looking place. In the evening it was always full, also many locals, and the food looked fresh - so we thought we can't go wrong with this one. We were wrong, though. First of all the service was really slow and unpolite. Although it was a... More

After reading the fantastic reviews of this restaurant I had to give it a try, and was pretty disappointed. I know that the standard of food and service in the area can be a bit hit and miss, but everything about this restaurant missed the mark. Myself and my sister ordered the patatas bravas, garlic prawns, prawn and avacado, and... More

We visited this restaurant after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. The staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome. We tried the paella which was very good and good value for money, and made a second visit when we had other other fish dishes which were equally as good. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Had a relatively early dinner here one night and it was one of the highlights of the trip. Superior Gazpacho, classic Jamon Iberico, perfectly cooked calamari, equally good, and spicy Shrimp Pil Pil. Fabulous! Now i know why it's #1. GB

Delicious food! Elena and Oscar run a fabulous restaurant. Every meal I have had here has been great, and the hosts are very friendly. They use fresh, local ingredients, and Oscar is always adding items to the menu. Elena's wine recommendations are awesome. Hope to be back one day soon!
