“Traditional, relaxed, great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Attentive, well mannered staff who speak English. Good 'on the corner' atmosphere with great views to the sea. Informal setting for traditional tapas and very much more extensive menu. Went to a night of flamenco. Gritty, passionate, colourful, noisy and accompanied by an excellent four course menu. Food well prepared, tasty and portions just the right size. Wine came free but could have been much better. Eat inside or out but be aware outside can be draughty from September onwards. Favoured by locals and certainly well worth a visit.

“a pretty awful dining experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

This restaurant (which we went to on a recommendation) was an example of all that is wrong about food in these resorts. Over-cooked, stodgy paella, greasy fried food, pork as dry as old leather - not much to say in mitigation other than they were welcoming and they did look after the kids well. oh ... and the "tiramisu" was the worst I have ever tasted. Avoid - just get off the seafront and you will find that there are some really decent restaurants in Almunecar.
