With a weeks holiday we visited Manolo and his beautiful restaurant we asked him to choose our dishes and the wine as we knew he knew us. The food was fantastic also the wine. Thank you again and will see you again shortly.

We always go to this restaurant when we are on holiday in Calahonda and it's always great. It's definitely one of the best restaurants in the area, a lovely place to relax and enjoy the superb food, wine & service.

Group of 5 of us stopped off here purely for Spanish food. We made a good choice! Inside the restaurant had a great atmosphere, great friendly staff who really did seem focused on ensuring you had a good time. The mixed tapas was a bit different from the norm, but good. The paella for 3 people we ordered was big!... More

Paid a return visit whilst back in Malaga. Hard to do it justice in words, has to be experienced. The food is absolutely amazing, beautifully presented and extremely tasty. The Suckling pig is delicious as is the Paella. In fact every dish we had was delicious. Service and atmosphere warm and friendly. A great fun night with fantastic food. Thanks... More

A great little restaurant serves the best paella in Calahonda. The restaurant is set in a pleasant courtyard and is a very authentic Spanish restaurant. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the night we visited it was a bit cold and the inside restaurant was full the owner offered us blankets to keep warm whilst dining in the courtyard.... More

Wanted to check this place due to high ratings. Clearly this has seen its best times. The service is friendly and attentive and that would be the most positive thing, the decoration fairly traditional, almost a bit kitsch. The menu offers the standard spanish dishes, with no big surprises. Our starters as well as the main courses must have spent... More

Great food in a real Spanish setting. The restaurant is located in El Zoco centro comercial of Calahonda. It has also few tables outside but in total only about 30 seats therefore it is important to make a prior booking. The food was very good and freshly prepared. The service supervised by the Owner Manolo,was friendly and efficient.
