“Better than you expect to have in Costa del Sol”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Really surprising that one can find this kind of restaurant in middle of tourist area, food is excellent and service professional. If you drop here more often, you'll notice that people eating here are mostly the same every night. Really reasonably priced, comparing what you get. Restaurant close after lunch and they open again at 07.00pm for dinner service. I prefer outdoor seating, as restaurant is located by tiny and very tidy, narrow Spanish style pedestrian street.

Try their pork fillet skewer, if you're not a friend of meat then try fried anchovies.

“a friendly family restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

One of the mainstays of the Carihuela restaurant scene. Has been around for ages and have a very loyal clientele. Food good, but can occasionally vary. House wine is great, a snip at the price!

“El Levante Restaurant La Carihuela”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We visted this restaurant last week and it was still as good and friendly as in Feb when we were there. The family are really lovely and will help you choose and explain what's on the menu if your undecided. We had the steaks of hake and the portion was enormous, 4 pieces and they were a good size, along with the veg and spanish potatoes it was brilliant value for just over 9euros. On another occasion I had the sole and my daughter had the monk fish kebab both meals were lovely. We went about 3 times in the week and never had a bad meal. We make a point of going there every time were in La Carihuel. Give it a try you wont be sorry.

“Always great service and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We've been going to this resteraunt for years and it's perfect for meat and fish lovers. The family who own it make you feel so welcome. I nealry always have the same think, fish kebab (lovely fat pieces of hake). Serve with alioli or their herb dressing. If you go to La Carihuela and eat in just one place make it this one!

“Nice traditional spanish restaurant with good food and prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

I would recommend this restaurant for a nice meal with good wine, the waiters are so nice and attentive - you can sit outside and watch the world go by. We went there three times in the one week and will go back next year.
