We found this little place when stayed by in fuengirola (not our usual place to stay). We have since been back five times as the food is so delicious (highly recommend the sea bass roasted in sea salt). The staff are friendly and welcoming. This restaurant is part of the small restaurants lining the street each with a small space... More

Not the best place if you want to have some quick food, but if you are looking for some good paella this is a nice place. But not for me and some friends. Staff wasn't really friendly, and space to sit outside wasn't very good either, very cramped!

As a regular visiter to Fuengirola we have tried many restaurants in the area but this is one of the best. A fantastic family run restaurant, the menu is Spanish cuisine based but with a nod to other food types. The staff are excellent and go out of their way to make all their customers feel special, it was also... More

This is one of the best Paella in town. Great place with very friendly and amazing staff. The chef is very welcoming and the Cuban king of cocktails will surprise you with his recipe's .. Will be back again for sure

Now I want to start off by saying the main reason am giving this place a 3 instead of a 4 is because of the amount of time it took to serve us. We turned up about 7.30pm and their were a few tables dining outside and we wanted to go inside, the friendly hostess explained I large party of... More

There are so many good things about Pata Rusa and it's firmly established as one of our favourite restaurants on the coast. Great location and in the evening the atmosphere outside is great as the road is really very quiet. The food is excellent, in fact I'd say it's the best paella in the area and the fish is always...

Food was very good, I ate entrecote with mushrooms and I really like it. First we got "pan" and salsa -sauce. It was just normal bread, but when we check bill, we saw that pan and salsa costs 14 euros! So 3,50€ per each. That is why I gave only 3/5.

Read the TA reviews and decided to give it a try. Looks like just another tourist place on a tourist street, but I was impressed by the staff and the service. The food was good (the fried whitefish were very tasty) and everybody was friendly and was having a good time. I'd definitely go back.

Another couple of visits to one of favourite places in Los Boliches. The patatas bravas was superb as was the calamari. Mains ranging from fish, paella,pork skewer, and sirloin steak were all tasty. The only thing was the steak was slightly over cooked . Service as always is excellent Elena and her staff can't do enough for you. And Oscar... More
