“Highly recommended but turned out to be poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

Don't order the SEA Bass, only about 4 fork fulls of fish which was topped with garlic which had been burnt under the grill. If you have tried burnt garlic topping you will understand what I mean. The praise for this establishment is very generous but clients should be more honest, no mention of the small portions of the so called veg, and pureed carrotts, this was a bit cheap and nasty!! Service was good.with pleasant surroundings.

“Top Class Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

The Spanish Garden Restaraunt is more Montemar than Torremolinos and although not in very pretty surroundings, the restaurant itselft if very upmarket and different from the usual eateries in the area.
The menu is excellent, with meals from al over the world. They are all cooked to perfection and served with style. Every meal looked appetising and tasted divine. We had the Menu del dia' the first time we visited. It cost 16 euros for 3 courses, and each one was nearly a meal in itself. There were 6 of us, and each on of us had a different meal on each course, which everyone said was delicious.
The service was second to none, but in the high season it would be beneficial to book as it's fantastic reputation has made it extremely popular. We will difinitely be returning for more when we go back to Carihuela next July.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

We have been dining at the Spanish Garden for a number of years and have always had good food. If you are looking for something a little different from the normal fare at a reasonable price this is certainly a place for you. The staff are very friendly and attentive.
