“Don't miss this experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

We have been visiting this restaurant every time we have gone to Torremolinos for the past ten years and it never disappoints. A huge platter of canapés is still served at no extra charge, which really replaces the need for a starter. Father has been chef since 1984, and son (Juan Antonio) has been the waiter for 15 years and they are a top act. Food is plentiful and superbly presented, supported by a great choice of wines and local liqueurs.
The restaurant decor is a little tired, but the food is extremely well maintained. Not the cheapest place to eat, but a great meal for £25 per head and a very pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended, and unlike many other restaurants it is open all winter.

“Marvelous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2011

My sister and I went at the begining if Feb and although Torremolinos was quiet and there was only one other table apart from us, the food was lovely. We would NOT recomend getting a starter AND a main course, as they bring out a variety of little canapes at no extra charge, which was a very nice touch and this is something they do this all the time. We would definately recommend a visit or two on your stay.

“Great food, better price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2011

If you're looking for a good restaurant I found the perfect place. Very good meat, portions are BIG and you get free snacks (amazing size, believe me) while waiting your order.
Good selection of Spanish wines, the waiters very polite.
9.5 over 10 ;)
