Have been here a couple of times, and still get a wonderful welcome. The food is good and reasonably priced. Typically busy, so good to book in advance. Range of different foods to please all tastes, and our kids always enjoy it here.

We are regular visitors to this restaurant. The food is excellent, service is very good and the surroundings are very sociable. Paco and Anderson always make you feel very welcome. Highly recommend this restaurant if you visit Calahonda or are staying nearby.

One of our favourite places to eat when we are in Spain. The staff are very friendly and the food is always top class. A good varied menu, highly recommend the salmon and the steak Diane.
