“a decent newcomer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Apparently this is a new tapas place in old part of Torremolinos, with a selection of tapas and typical Spanish plates on a menu. We tried a salad which was quite good, with a slightly sweet dressing. The setback were mini hamburguers, for sure pre-fabricated and just average. The prices are quite all right, so one would not complain about the food quiality. To say in short - a good presentation, average food

“Amazing tapas & service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We had been recomended to try this restaurant from friends who went in May and could not believe how good the food and service were from a Spanish run restaurant. The waitress explained the menu plus the specials in english to us and gave us time to consider our selection which we chose 4 mini tapas and a special, Tataki Atun, seared tuna, well the tuna just melted in your mouth. A couple of drinks and amazing meal experience all for €30 for two of us.
