“A real favourite of ours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

A great place. Service was excellent, food was very, very good quality, and here's the big surprise, one of the cheapest around. Set meal for 4 people (loads of choice on starters/mains around 30 dishes on each) with 2 bottles of wine E60 !!
This isn't "nouvea cuisine" but it is traditionally cooked Spanish food and plenty of it. There is a E25 a head set meal too. Tread carefully, the list of starters isn't a choice, you get the lot. In fact you'll struggle to eat the main course.
The place is deceptively large. Several rooms all in the Andalucian style, dark, heavy wooden furniture. The house wine is very good indeed.
Don't bother with the others. We tried them all and although some were good, we didn't find one to beat this place.It quickly became one of our faourites anywhaere, never mind just Fuengirola. Wish we were still there !
If you want to go at weekends make sure you book. It can get busy and it is very popular with locals.

“not bad restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We visited this restaurant in a very rainy day and were very surprised to fing there so many people. That day there were some celebrities: we saw journalists and people with cameras shooting one table. That's why it was really very noisy but we asked to give us a table in another room where the atmosphere was much quieter. The food was very tasty despite the fact that the waiter mixed up dishes ahd brought us someone's else. Vine was also very good. Maybe the choice of dishes is not so wide but anyway the place is worth visiting.

“A hidden gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

Have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions, and the food and service never changes, always excellent. The fixed price menu of €15 euros including a good wine, is muy bien. We will return soon.
