We bought an apartment in Montemar in January, and we can’t believe how lucky we have been to drop on El Figon as our closest restaurant. We have travelled around Spain pretty extensively, and love the regional food. One of our favourite dishes is cordero lechal (milk fed lamb), and as many others have mentioned the cordero lechal at El... More

We had a little difficulty finding this restaurant but once inside we were made very welcome. Whilst studying the menu the Chef came over and recommended what we should have for our main course which was a slow cooked leg of lamb. We had very good house croquets and a salad.

Was tempted to write a bad review simply to keep 99% of the tourists in Torremolinos from eating here as they would ruin a place like this. This was far and away one of the best two meals I have had in my life. The owner and cook served us himself and led us through an amazing meal. When we... More

Went to this restaurant yesterday I wanted Merluza (Hake) but couldn´t have it as he had not had a delivery yesterday as it was a public holiday here. So I chose a dish I´d never had before Solomill con foie (fillet steak with foie gras) which was served with a sauce made from Malaga wine. It was absolutely amazing the... More
