Informal outdoor barstools on the street but amazing food. It's a great experience, good atmosphere and very busy. For 5 € each portion it is incredible. The gambas (prawns) are delicious.

We've been here a week. Working through the top rated restaurants. Reading the reviews. Browsing the photos for something remotely promising. Which is how I ended up here. A top 5 restaurant and positive mentions in other negative reviews. So, the octopus was over cooked, the fish was over cooked and arrived at the same time. The deserts were off... More

I was just at their take-away fish-fry location on Playa del Cristobal. The first couple of times I was there, everything was great - good food, good service. Today, the girl at the counter sized me up as a "guiri" (what they call foreigners) and tried to keep 5 Euros of the change for herself, quite nonchalantly. It's the second... More

We always head here. Nice fish tapas, and the best selection delivered with your drinks. reasonable priced food and drinks, good atmosphere, nice location on seafront but set back on pavement. It's busy with locals which says it all! Recommended.

They did not us feel it, they served the food and drinks with a smile. The food was amazing, we had sword fish Steak and Salmon, both were served... More

I believe there are 3 in Almunecar all very busy at lunch because they do excellent fish tapas - great service - 2 are on the sea front and in lively spots and one on the road in to town so lots of tables to sit and enjoy a long lunch

I went here based on the reviews below, as I often hanker after good old fashioned fish & chips. Finding a good chippie that compares with what we have in the UK is a challenge, and unfortunately I failed to find such a place here. Don't get me wrong, the fish is fried perfectly and there is a good variety... More

There are actually 4 Lute y Jesus locations in Almuñécar and you can see from looking at the reviews that people confuse them so one looks like they are eating at a seaside cafe, others look like a chip shop and yet others look like it is a nice restaurant inland from the beach. This review is about choice #3.... More
