Amazing food gets very busy, have to queue at times, well worth it though xx Frequented by locals which is always a good sign. Tapas are served on the tall tables. If you want plates there served anywhere in the restaurant.

We ate here on the final night of our short break in Velez Malaga. The service was amazing as was the food. If you enjoy fish and shellfish this is definitely the place to go in Velez. Very reasonably priced too, can highly recommend

Very good, typical seafood restaurant: tapas, fish & seafood of all kinds. Ate here twice: once for lunchtime beers & tapas at the zinc-topped bar, then for a full lunch on very busy Friday (market-day in Velez). Enjoyed ‘mixed grilled fish’ - includes clams with...More

Excellent fish and seafood selection. Extremely popular but very accommodating and it was not an issue being squeezed in on a table or even at the bar. We have been several times and it has always been great. Recommend the paella and the Russian salad.
