I'm not one to complain when it comes to combining unusual ingredients as I have been a bit of pioneer in this field myself with sweet and sour liver however today's starter was out there when it comes to pushing new boundaries. Seafood and avocado salad sounded innocuous enough. I think that prawns and avocado is a great combination and... More

Visited here for lunch as we passed by it in the car. Fantastic location right on the beach. Good choice of menu but it's primarily fish based. There is a separate menu for the kids. Initially we thought it was expensive but to be fair, the size of the portions we got were very generous. The shellfish is beautifully done... More

Lovely spot beside the beach just outside Nerja for our lunch with friends. The starter of Pil Pil Prawns, calamari and salad was a big hit with everyone and were accompanied by delicious fresh bread. The seafood paella was fantastic but unfortunately the vegetable paella was disappointing (watery and lacked flavour). One of the group had steak which was huge... More

La Restinga is on the Torox road just outside Nerja. Most people would drive there but we walked both ways ... it's a nice walk from Nerja with great views. The restaurant is set above the sea and has excellent views. You can eat in a covered patio (as we did) or inside. We both had the grilled sword fish.... More

Great Seafood. December visit quite but friendly. Imagine it would be a great location for lunch in spring summer. Very much enjoyed lunch and the singing of the parrot along with Adele.

It's rare we ever needed to escape from the rain, living here in Torrox, but occasionally the mountains behind forget their role on this earth and allow the rain clouds to traverse their summits. So, it was for us one rainy day to occupy ourselves. What better way than to sample some local food. Lunch it is then! We pass... More

The restaurant has a fabulous location close to the waters edge. The waiters are friendly and polite, if you enjoy seafood this place is a must. For starters we had salad and clams,mains we shared zarzuela (fish stew) and desert creme catalan and banana and chocolate torte. Food and ambience was in a word wonderful.

We ate here several times at lunchtime as we used the beach. More expensive than your average beach restaurant but we loved it. Tried the sole twice it was so good, bass, grilled sardines cooked on the beach in a boat shaped bbq, the fish kebab (fab) chefs salad, seafood salad, king prawns (not the best) calamari, and seafood paella....

Enjoyed our meal but found the menu quite limited with many items for 2 or more people. Expensive for food no better than what is available elsewhere at half the price. Waiters are friendly but not terribly efficient meaning we had to ask for the same thing several times before it was supplied. Lovely setting though.

Enjoyed a superb lunch here on several occasions. Their tropical salad is a meal in itself - huge serving of delicious fresh fruit, prawns and lettuce - great for sharing and plenty as a starter for 4 people. Their sole is one of the best I have every had. Not the cheapest restaurant around - but really good value for... More
