“Spanish lessons with dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We discovered this little restaurant on our last visit to Torremolinos. It was only a few blocks from our apartment. It was closed on Fridays so we decided to go back after our friends had arrived. We proceeded to go back several more times during our 6 week stay. The gambas y pil pil were so good, and the mussells, yummm. We also tried almost everything else on the menu and all were winners! Antonio who is the manager convinced us to try the paella on our last visit. We have travelled in Andalusia numerous times since 2002 and this was THE BEST paella we had ever eaten. Rice perfectly cooked and seasoning done to perfection. We also stopped by several times for an after dinner drink, or coffee in the afternoon. When Antonio found out my husband (grew up in ElPaso, TX) spoke Spanish, he worked with him on pronunciation, correct usage, etc. I learned alot just by observation! We will definitly go back when we return for our winter's stay in 2013. The warm welcome we received from both Antonio and Paqui, his chef, made Enrique's # 1 on our list.

“A walm welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

The menu was different from many other restaurants. Upon arrival we received a walm welcome and the restaurant had an extremely pleasant atmosphere. At the end of the meal we were given a range of delicious complimentary drinks.

“Little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

This place doesn't look too appealing from the outside but the food... The best I've eaten! Quality was second to non, along with the service. Had the pork and wife had chicken in peppercorn. The mussels to start were cooked to perfection, paid 17 euros for three course and a beer.... The price doesn't reflect the food being served you would happily pay double this.

“Wonderful little gem in Torremolinos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2010

Went inside because of the menu offer, and BANG, what a nice little place!!! We had walk by the restaurant more than one, had'ent seen the little romantic garden, so it was a big surprice. The owner was polite, funny, good to speek english, and the food was very very good. All the food was of a good quality, the meat, the vegetables and so on. I can strongly recommand this place, but remember, it's closed on fridays:(
