Lovely atmosphere and great food

Loved this little restaurant in Torrox Costa. Have visited 2 or 3 times. The service is slow and relaxed and friendly and efficient and the food is really beautiful.

The setting of this restaurant is lovely in a hidden courtyard garden. The food was very good and the wine delicious. The place was very busy and although this should have been expected as most of the tables were reserved there were not enough staff to cope and so the service was slow. Having said that the staff were friendly... More

Couldn't fault a thing... the food, service, location (in a hanging garden) and wine were amazing. And the price was superb for what we had. You have to come here without doubt. The entrance is signed although there is no "shop front"

This restaurant is amazing. The tables (from approximately April until November) are located outside, in a beautiful garden. The menu is not huge (which is a good thing in my book), but they have a good variety of dishes, ranging from salads and soups, fish and seafood to meats and pasta. The quality of the food is excellent. They also... More

Best place to eat and enjoy life in Torrox. Excellent local wine on the menu matching the food. Small place where you get a good atmosphere, large plants and a waterfall.

This was our second visit after a lovely meal on our holiday last year. Food was again excellent and the service could not be faulted. It was little chilly sat outside on a day that had been mainly overcast, so make sure you have a jumper! We will be back next year - hopefully.

Have visited a number of times over the years and is certainly one of the best restaurants in the Torrox area. Very nice setting and decent Spanish food to match, especially if you like your meat like myself. I would certainly recommend it for special occasions, and have yet to be disappointed. The staff are also very friendly so a... More

Nice location with a wery nice staff. Food is wery good, but the menu is always the same. The restaurant would profit on changing the menu once during the season.
