“Definitely have to try!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

My partner and I were recommended this restaurant by a man we met on the plane to Malaga. He visits the area approx. 6 times a year and always goes to this restaurant so we gave it a try and absolutely loved it. It is nothing like how you would get Tapas in Glasgow (which is obviously not the authentic way) but it was ideal as meant we had rest between courses. Everything from the starters to the veg were just delicious. Service was good, most staff only spoke Spanish however one waiter spoke broken English and we managed to communicate fine. This doesn't bother me at all as you're in their homeland at the end of the day, however I do know that some people get annoyed if they cannot speak English!! Great wine choice, great food, great service. Very relaxed feel about the place. Cannot praise it enough. Cannot see why anyone would complain :)

“Great to Sit Outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Situated in the centre of town this is one of the few good restaurants we’ve found in Fuengirola that has outside seating. We have eaten well here three or four times over the past few years. On this occasion it was a warm Saturday evening and the restaurant was extremely busy. Despite this the staff were friendly, efficient and the service was good. The food was very good too. I had the days special, baby leg of lamb and my wife had Cod Valencia. The deserts are scrumptious and beautifully presented. Another of Fuengirolas worthwhile restaurants we frequent when we are in Spain.

“Not as good as it was but still above average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I ate here a few weeks ago and was somewhat disappointed: the tapas weren't as fresh and innovative. The staff had changed and weren't as engaging. It could have been an off night but it's still one of the best places to eat in Fuengirola.
In general, the restaurants in town serve indifferent, industrialized, poorly cooked food. One will never find a decent , fresh salad. Potato crips are a ubiquitous accompaniment on many plates.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We've used this restaurant, on and off, for a long time. Over the last 2/3 years it has really upped its act. The food and service are first class and it offers a terrace for a warm evening, indoors for that cold winter night and a wine bar, next doo, if you just want a snack. It's well patronised by locals.
