The best service in town. Really the best paella what you ever tasted. The white wine of the house was perfect, tasted perfectly with the paella. I really return too this excellent restaurant. Next time I'll take a meat dish. Other people in the restaurant took a meat dish and it looked also delicious. Thanks Pata Rusa, see you again.

We tried some different plates and quality-wise there was a bit of everything. Garlic shrimp were good, patatas bravas were also pretty good. Two paellas that both lacked taste. Fish was ok. Had some octupus which was pretty bad. Service was not very fast but very friendly.

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...

Went here based on reviews, staff were really friendly, very good value. Mussels to start were the biggest juiciest ones I've had. We shared paella for main which was nice, I'm not a big paella fan but loads of fresh seafood and huge portions. Meant tk go back for more seafood but didnt get a chance. Great value for good...

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
