“Great tapas and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Long menu, unusual and great tastes, very reasonable prices. Paper serviettes deliver a lot of entertainment while you wait for food. Have your camera ready as the only menu is on big blackboards.

“Amazing food in a great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

The tapas here is the best around by far! We were unable to get a table so sat at the bar. Our waiter was rude and unhelpful but the other staff were lovely. The prices are fantastic for such a high standard of food. I would highly recommend Al Rolo to anyone but pre book a table! Best meal in Fuengirola

“Quite simply fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We have just returned from our 3rd visit to Al Rolo whilst on holiday and staying in the neighbouring hotel. We do not normally return to the same restaurant while on holiday again and again, however, Al Rolo can not be beaten for quality, presentation, ambience, price and most importantly taste. We have eaten at some very good restaurants in the UK and further afield but would easily rate this as the best for they right combination of the above factors. All the dishes are fantastic and the staff and manager are a credit to the restaurant. They demonstrate a real passion for the food and wine, they clearly believe in the cuisine and from the moment you walk in, make you feel extremely welcome. It shows that they have tried every dish and are able to make bespoke recommendations according to you as individuals. If this were in the UK we would go back again and again, indeed I would attempt to hire them to cater for our Wedding in May if I could. Quite simply fantastic.
