We could see this place from our hotel across the road so decided to try it. The inside dining area is charming and the welcome was friendly and helpful.
Wine by the glass was decent quality, just one hiccup when my wife`s order for a Chardonnay ended up as a Shandy! But soon rectified.
For starters we had a seafood crepe and a salmon with asparagus and cheese, both delicious. Our main courses were baby lamb chops and octopus (never been asked “how many legs do you want?” before), again both dishes were excellent.
Watching the young man doing Flambe cooking was entertainment while we waited for our food.
The only downside here was walking back in the dark along a very dodgy path to the bridge over the main road.
We can honestly recommend this place for food and service. On our next visit to Estepona we will certainly return.

Wonderful food and service in truly family run restaurant. Mum in kitchen, Dad front of house, son and daughter serving. Highly recommended for genuine Spanish food. Tapas superb.

We stayed slightly out of Estepona so this was the geographically closest restaurant to us. That said, It did not disappoint lady champagne and I. Food is either tapas or a modest selection of normal mains. We elected tapas. It was excellent. Well cooked and nicely timed. The only downsides being the menu is all in Spanish, there’s no English option and service can be a wee bit slow. All in all though, a well priced and well run place. Well worth the visit.

My wife, baby, and I had lunch here. The food was delicious (especially the lubina fish al toque de pimienta and octopus a la gallega), the patio was fresh and breezy, and the owner and waitress were so friendly. Highly recommend and we will definitely come back again!
