Great restaurant with good shade right on the beach! The staff were brilliant and helpful although we speak Spanish which is always an asset. The food was good but clearly not the cheapest in the area as a premium is charged for the setting which is fabulous. On a holiday certainly worth a visit.

Although we had been to this area before we had never tried this restaurant. We decided to give it a try but would not wish to visit again. The service was very abrupt, the food was more expensive. A waiter eventually came to our table and took our drinks order whilst we studied the menu. He returned with the drinks... More

Pleasant restaurant with very good seafood, much of which you can see being cooked on the boat fire pit outside.

Lovely setting, 1 night we had a table on the beach, another we went inside with view overlooking the sea. Great food on both visits. Speciality is the fish food, we had the salmon, Dorada and Sea bass on our visits, but they bbq squid and sardines on the beach.

We spent the day at the beach and we made a reservation for lunch at "El Peñon". The food was delicious, one of the best paellas in Salobreña. The location and views awesome and the staff was helpful.

My partner and I have dined here a number of times, first drawn by the location, then finding the food generally good. Lunch on New Year's Day, however, offered a cautionary note. The place was VERY busy, almost full to capacity, and perhaps the staff were too rushed in trying to satisfy everyone's demands, the consequence being that the food... More

There is a long line of chiringuitos (beach bars) along the main beach in Salobreña, and El Peñon is the first one nearest the town. There are a number of eating areas to choose from, on the beach, on the beach in a covered shelter, the restaurant itself, and a raised terrace above the water beside and slightly behind the...
