“Amazing must try restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Food is amazing, honestly some of the best in SPAIN, i would recomend the steak and chicken cordon blue both were great and steak cooked perfectly. Staff are really nice and attentive... Mojitos are a must the best I've EVER had. Restaurant it's self is beautifully decorated and a fantastic fine dining experience while in torremolinos you must vist, word of advice try and book in advance. Hope you enjoy as much as we have. Average main meal around 10 - 15 euros.

“Just Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I´ve been very fond of this restaurant for some years, or since my first visit there, but now the fine Finns who run this restaurant did even better than ever before.

The four of us who visited El Sabor in September got the best dish and service we have ever had in a restaurant. We had already decided to eat at El Sabor before traveling and had read through the menu on the internet. We all wanted to try the Reindeer steak and this dish has to be pre-ordered a day or two in advance which we did.

To cut a long story short, the Chef himself welcomed us and informed us that he had taken the liberty to select all the sides with the steak but asked us if we had some privileges regarding the cooking of the meat. As he was very professional and friendly we all decided to let the Chef choose the cooking as well. Needless to say this Reindeer steak was the best dish I have ever had and I cannot praise it to justice.

After this great meal we ordered a table again just a couple of days later and some of us ordered the Reindeer steak once more. We even tried the Elk meatballs, Snails in garlic and rochefort and the Risotto, all dishes very tasty.

The staff is very calm and friendly and for a „bon vivant“ specialty like we got both times we visited El Sabor, I would recommend to sit inside the restaurant which is nicely decorated and clean. You wouldn‘t want to spoil your good food by sitting at table on the pavement with cars driving by just few feet away from you.

I and all of us will certainly visit El Sabor again when in Torremolinos many times over...

“Good but limited”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Very good service and food but very limited menu and expensive.The service and decor are exceptional but lack of options at the price make it a one off special visit.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Stayed 10 days in Torromilinos and ate here three times as found it to be the best food for quality and value . Portions are quite large so we mostly shared a starter .Main courses come with a choice of baked potatoes ,mushroom croquettes ,French fries or salad. Service is excellent and restaurant is spotless .Loved the caramel vodka complimentary shots at the end of the meal.
