Well, I have lived in Andalucia for over 10 years and this must be our worst dining experience. Restaurant is superbly situated on the stunning Ardales lakes and was very busy. However that is no excuse for shoddy service which started from the get go. After about 10 minutes we (party of 4)were served drinks. 20 minutes later after grabbing... More

Everyone says ignore the worst one and ignore top one. So glad we did. The place, views, staff, and food were really great. We asked if the restaurant was open as we were early, and they said yes and showed us upstairs. The waiter asked if we were cold and offered us a seat in front of the roaring fire,... More

No trip to This area is complete without a trip to the lakes and this stunning restaurant right on the lake with views to die for, we sat upstairs on a sunny December afternoon next to a roaring log fire and ate well prepared and delicious food, what more could you ask for, great service and then up to the...

Food is excellent, prices are pretty low, and the views are, of course, way out of the ordinary. Highly recommended :-)

Surly service on arrival. Tasteless food that was poorly cooked and served warm. A poor example of Spanish cuisine. We have had better for half the price. The coffee was substandard. The Lakeside view was lovely, but we would not recommend this restaurant. Enjoy the view from another locacation.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with stunning views and great service. Found a table with easy access for my Mum and also the disabled facility was excellent. Food was fresh and the service was swift but without the feeling of being rushed, all enjoyed in the sunshine overlooking the stunning lakes.

We stopped for a snack during a brief visit to the lakes. We opted for a bocadillo and a beer each, which were brought without much of a wait, despite them being very busy. We didn't have trouble getting a seat on the terrace - it's a huge place. There were many other dining options. The menu, and various eating... More

This Restaurant overlooks a lake in Parque Ardales not far from Malaga, Run by 4 brothers & we had a shared Tapas for four . As our first Tapas we were not sure what to expect but were amazed how delicious it was.
