“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

We read the reviews on trip advisor and thought we'd give this place a try. We've been coming to Miraflores for a number of years and didn't know this place existed. What a find! Previous reviews did not exaggerate how good the food was. We had the best steaks ever. The service was impeccable and the chef was delightful - checking out how satisfied we were. Will definitely be back.

“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

This lovely restaurant is fortunately right next to our apartment on Riviera Del Sol and we cannot recommend it too highly. The meat is beyond compare and the wine list as good as you would expect from a family run restaurant that has familial connections with a great wine merchant at La Cala. It is intimate and friendly with exceptional service from Santi and the extraordinary culinary skills of his Dad. The chicken skewer and solomillo are simply mouthwatering. Do not miss the chance to sample this gourmet delight - all at very reasonable prices.

“Fabulous Restaurant with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

We visited this restaurant this week on recommendation and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is small and intimate, the staff warm and friendly and the food very very good! What more can you ask. We were a party of 4 and we had made a reservation - which is just as well because it was full. 2 had fillet steak and 2 the suckling pig - we all had a taste of everything and it was all melt in the mouth delicious. The chef/owner came out to speak to us and find out if we were enjoying our meal - not often you get that kind of service in Spain. Would not hesitate to recommend it.

“Amazing Steak and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Just got back from Riviera del sol ,. We heard about Rocca Grill and decided to go before we left UK. We were there for 5 nights and eat twice here . Amazing Steaks , I had entrecote first time and Entrada ( Skirt ) 2nd time - Both were great . The Pork fillet ( Tenderloin) was fantastic too. The son was an excellent host and explained everything . Included in your meal is an amuse bouche, bread and special olive oil, and a platter of fresh fruit and cream . A great range of wines . I Can't fault it - very popular , so book or get in early . When you come into Riviera , go straight up the hill and look for the flags on the left , then turn left , go across one roundabout and its on the right ( thought this may be helpful, as there are no signs) !

“They know how to get you back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

One of the smallest and hidden restaurants in Spain. By luck it was recommended in Tripadvisor, and we went ther. We will be back. Service was from out of space. From the moment we enter the door, till we left, we had full attention. We ordered Suckling pig so a starter was not necesarry. Instead we got some garlic breads with tomatos. As a compliment we then recived coritso and bread. with the best oliveoil I'v ever tasted. Then came frech baked bread with the same oil. The pig was exellent. The winelist, fantastic. The price of the meal was affordable.
