Some of the food was very nice, some wasn't. A lot of the food we tried to order from the menu was permanently taken off. We were lucky to enjoy some lovely jazz music on the night we were there.

Service here is in a league of its own - plenty of staff all doing the same thing - all busy walking in and out of the restaurant and that's it - While we were there they lugged tables and chairs out of the restaurant walking back past people trying to order food or pay bills and ignoring them!

First visit. Open outside, luckely we find a table. Food was ok. Next visit with a group, food was ok, we sat inside, but it was not cosy. Other staff, friendly but from a distance.

We visited Matahambre (= "kills hunger") twice during our four night stay in Torremolinos. There is a very extensive menu. We had some tasty pork loin in artisan bread and a mix of croquettes (including black pudding, prawn and Iberico ham) first time around and didn't get as far as dessert. Staff were friendly and efficient, the atmosphere was convivial,... More

Can't fault it. Good choice on the menu and the food was wonderful. Also try the desserts, they are pretty good too. Marinated chicken was the best thing we had.

The food was beautiful and selection was huge- almost to the point of confusing. Service ok, not the friendliest. Nice outdoor space to sit in.

Which we enjoyed one or two of our tapas, the vast menu really effected the food quality. Avoid the skewers, especially the Morcorran Lamb, which was nothing like the picture in menu and didn't taste that nice. The chicken skewer also tasted very bad. Service, while quick, got a couple of our orders mix up, like bringing us two of... More

Away from the beaches, right in centre of Torremolinos, Matahambre is great spot.... good food, lovely drinks selection with San Miguel Tank Beer available as well. Tapas are great - tasty and great texture... properly done with some modern interpretation. Service staff couldn't be more helpful even though I spoke no Spanish. They tried to explain to me on portions... More
