We had a very good experience here with the family, found the staff to be very friendly and they spoke very good English. Ordered the Spanish Bravas and the vegetable paella, they were both delicious and really good portion size. Would definitely go back again

Really enjoyed our night here and intended to go back but never got round to it. The paella was fantastic and the evening special of sole in prawn butter amazing. The staff and owners are very attentive and friendly and always manage a smile, the only small gripe I had was that despite pre ordering the paella and being there... More

Although I don't like fish my partner really wanted to try their fish paella. His was absolutely lovely and I had a very tasty chicken Caesar salad. What makes this place special is the staff. Very friendly and each time we past their restaurant they would call out and wave! Very child friendly would most definitely recommend.

This restaurant serves wonderful food. We had a chicken and king prawn paella cooked by Oscar the owner and chef. The best lunchtime I have had in a long while. So relaxing. Nothing pretentious just good quality ingredients cooked to perfection. Recommend you give it a try when you visit Fuengirola. We shall definitely be revisiting.

What a wonderful restaurant. The staff, especially Elena, were fantastic. The food was delicious and very generous portions and always lovely and fresh. A must try is the paella which was the best myself and my daughter have ever had. It is such good value for money. It was both of our Birthdays and Oscar and Elena made it so... More
