We've been to Calahonda 3 times and every time we go back to this restaurant repeatedly during our stays. The food and service are excellent. I cannot find a single fault. This is an excellent family restaurant.

Visited this restaurant with my wife, daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren. The restaurant was quite busy but we were accommodated by the helpful if somewhat frazzled staff. The food was very good and excellent value for money. Will go again.More
