“Great Fun, Excellent Service & Superb Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

Easy to walk past this restaurant as there are lots of others around but I'm glad we didn't. We go to Calahonda regularly and have eaten in most of the others and this is by far the best. The menu is just right with simple dishes excellently cooked and presented. The Fondue is tasty and lost of fun (especially the mixed meat) and the Argentine Skewer is fantastic. The kids menu is just right in terms of the type of dish and quality of the food. Of course the wine list is also excellent but what really made this place stand out is was the service! Unlike other restaurants nearby, you are made to feel welcome and not rushed. Lots of patience and nice touches for kids. After our first visit, our 8yr old daughter couldn't wait to go back as she loved the food and wanted to see the waitress again. What more can you say.

“A truly wonderful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

I have nothing to criticise! Service, food and ambience were impeccable! We had fillet steak (three orders), which were cooked to perfection! Others ordered lasagne and the mixed meat fondue, which they thoroughly enjoyed. The children were well catered for and treated with patience and kindness. A great evening out and I highly recommend this restaurant!

“A fresh fun restaurant at El Zoco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

So pleased we didn't walk past this new restaurant. As a family of four with 2 small children they looked after us well as soon as we walked in. The kids were occupied with colouring books and chuppa chupps and a kids menu that was traditional, satisfying and well priced. We had mixed meat fondue that was very filling but more so was very different than what's on offer in El Zoco. The salad and chips we're replenished upon asking. The staff were attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Loved our evening and will definitely return.

“Something different and wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

We all live in Calahonda but this was our first visit, do glad we went or we would have missed out on a fantastic evening. Two of us had the mixed meat fondue, great fun and sauces to die for. The others had the Argentinean steaks, succulent and juicey. We shared the escargot to start, very lovely and garlicky !!
Staff kept and eye on our needs and the maître d' was first class. We will be back again and again if that standard keeps up!!!
