Have patronized this restaurant for 7 consecutive years, since their opening. Never disappointed, super quality food + service, owners Oskar and Elena have always treated me like family when I arrive every year from San Francisco. Both Spanish and Russian entrees, full service menu and happy to accommodate special requests.

For a combination of reasons, Pata Rusa quickly became our favorite place in Fuengirola. First off, the food is good. The mussels marinara were absolutely delicious. The seafood paella was very tasty (albeit it happened to fall a bit on the salty side). The rice lobster was very nice as well. For completeness sake, the only weak spot to my... More

Nice and friendly atmosphere, but the dishes we ordered turned out to be a bit mediocre. The pil pil prawns were bland and tasteless, and even though the meat on the skewer was nice it was accompanied by average potato chips. Good pina coladas! :-)
