“Loved the fresh shrimps, but the rest is mainly deep fried...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Typical tourist restaurant with many photos on the menu. The menu is aligned with all the beach restaurants you can find on this street. Try the fresh seafood and skip the frozen deep fried stuff...

“Our favourite lunch restaurant in Torremolinos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We adore this restaurant, we go every day for lunch when we're there - March, June and September. We love how they get to know you - they just bring us our favourite wine without even asking! Amazing ambience, superb views over the beach, brilliant service and what an extensive, amazing menu.

The fresh fish is wonderful, cooked in the BBQ. The house salad is the BEST house salad in any chiringuito in Torremolinos - cheese, chicken and that oh so amazing pink sauce. We love the freshly cooked chips and the jamon serrano. Also the omelettes are just amazing - try tuna and cheese - wonderful!

Don't go away without having a bottle of Penascal Rosado, it's the ultimate refreshing Spanish wine - just imagining sitting there on the terrace, the sun beating down, the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach, the birds washing in the fountains, the water gurgling ... and the most wonderful freshly cooked food. They have everything you could imagine - from huge joints of fresh meat to fish and shellfish. GO THERE!!

“Sea front location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Very well run restaurant, the staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. The food is excellent as the menu highlights this. Fish is fresh, meat tender and the salads are tasty. Spent several nights here and we have no complaints would visit again and certainly recommend

“Rip off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

12 euros for non alcoholic Sangria. All of a sudden the language barrier kicks in? The place looked dirty. I would not go back there.

“La Paella- more like La Poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Drinks - wine reminded us of wine vinegar. Paella had more food with covers(shells) on than you get in square mile of med! All well and good if they could have given you a rinse bowl for after you had finished fighting with your meal. Fish skewer ok but filled out with veg only 3 bits of fish for around £12. Friend had marinated fried fis. It turned up in batter that was soggy I thought the point of batter was to get a nice crisp crunch when you bite into it. But it had been marinated in lemon which just made it bitter and unedible. Should be on menu it is in lemon then I bet they wouldn't sell it. Overall an expensive disappointment
