The Tapas is amazing Can't remember everything on it, but the curry and the stew were to die for. It was so amazing because it was stuff i'd never usually order but it was just mouth watering. The desserts were... More

Had lunch here most days while on the beach - limited menu but what they had was really excellent. The salad with strawberries and sultanas is particularly nice when served with the manchego cheese. Lovely staff - friendly and efficient.

It took us couple of days of trial and error to end up in this place. From that on we've been here every day. Top tapas place on the seafront ... have the tapas box, you won't regret. Great service as well.

Do not miss this gem - high rating completely deserved on Trip Advisor! The picnic box is excitingly naughty but so nice. Cocktails - Try them all! Location is ideal. All of the food and drinks are to a very high standard. The staff work hard to please - book ahead so you won't be disappointed!

Great ambiance, amazing service by Damian and what to say about the food! We had the Tapas Experience and that was one of the best food experience of our 10 days trip in Spain! I would recommend this place to anybody visiting the Costa Del Sol!

Visited twice on our visit to Torremolinos, Had the Tapas Experience from the menu which is a large selection of Tapas very well prepared and presented. It all tasted awesome and the quality very high. Would recommend this place as did try some other places and this is by far the best. Booking recommended as gets busy
