I started with a glass of their special vermut with a belgian touch. The food we had was really tasteful and definitely home made. Special croquettes with belgian shrimps. MMMmmmm The chef is obviously from Belgium, but the menu is very intenational with some special...dishes. Service was friendly and very good. I loved itMore

Lovely meal with my Partner as a last minute booking. The croquettes were so tasty, goats cheese and spinach was perfection and the smokey cheese so good, with lovely sauce to match. The pork cheeks were heavenly with a mask potato with veg that I...could eat all day. We had the 9 prawns with their special sauce and we had to split the last one as they were worth the work to peel them. Highly recommend coming here especially if you are a belgian beer fan!! Thankyou for a lovely evening. We will be back soon with friends.More

We heard friends saying good things about this restaurant so I tried it as well. The lady gave us a warm welcome and showed us the suggestions as well. I forgot my reading glasses, but the lady had some spare ones :-) We took a...creamy soup of wild mushrooms and the stew of venisson. As desser we had the chocolate surprise which is fantastic for chocolate lovers. We had a bottle of Rioja house wine for only €12,50 . Nice music, good atmosphere and very clean. We are happy we tried it and we will definitly come backMore

My friend and I found this excellent little Belgian-owned and husband and wife run restaurant last year and it was good to be able to go back again twice last week. On Friday we had the excellent sherry tasting flight and matching menu, and on...Saturday evening we went with choices from the a la carte menu and specials (venison for me). A great change from the sea front fish and seafood and much better and much more interesting and tastier food than in the restaurants in the square around the corner where this year the food was disappointing to say the least.More

Of course we came back to this little restaurant to try some more nice food. Again, everything was perfect. We had the special menu of the month (4 different dishes with 4 different sherry wines) and that was lovely. The creamy soup of wild mushrooms...was superb.

Small but great restaurant where the service is very friendly and helpful and where the food is very tastful. Clean toilets, good music and comfy chairs make are all in this restaurant . I had some cod croquettes and a salmon with tartare sauce. As...for me that was more than enough I ended the evening with an Irish coffee (and of course, with fresh whipped cream). It is a belgian chef, but the dishes are very international. They also serve some good beers and different wines by the glassMore

Owned by a husband and wife team and a delight to experience the fantastic service and quality of food. We enjoyed the croquettes and special starter on the day which was fresh Herring marinated prior to having mains of Giant Prawns "Gastro Vinum" and Iberian...Pork Cheek with Moorish Herbs and PX wine. We were both very impressed with the presentation of our dishes and the flavours overall. We will definitely revisit!More

We visited Gastro Vinum on Sunday and had a wonderful dining experience. Something a bit different in Fuengirola, it’s owned and run by a lovely Belgian couple who provide outstanding personal service. We opted for the pork cheeks and the beef stiffado for our mains...and were blown away with the quality, meat was so tender. Good wine list and a great choice of craft Belgian beers. Hoping to return soon!More

It is a cosy place, where the two hosts are very welcoming and you can feel, that the resturant is a passion. You can also feel the passion in the food and the drinks. They have a great variety of food like frog legs, local...delicacies and vegan options. They have craft beers that suits the season and also a fine selection of wine. They even have home made ice tea. I hope, that if i ever visit Fuengirola again, that this place is still there.More

We had another great evening at Gastrovinum. The belgian chef Stefan and his wife Sofie welcome you very warm and the food they have on the menu is great. I had the menu fusion (under 20 €) and that was great. I started with the...homemade cod croquettes, the chicken skewer wit thai chili and the belgian apple pie. Great price for this menu. And we had a bottle of Chardonnay for only 13,50€. We will be back!More
