“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

At this restaurant, they know your name and what your preferences are! They are very attentive and we love Mar, the owner, and the chefs are superb. Crowd here is often British, Dutch, Norwegian, French. WiFi is available and lots of folks go for morning coffee and to read the newspapers. Lunch and dinner specials are clearly noted on chalkboards and they cook to order. Great place!

“Great Sunday Roast in Estepona Port”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a lovely Sunday Roast Dinner today, we had the Lamb, and the plate was a mix of vibrant colours of Fresh vegetables, and a generous serving of Meat,
We could of had Beef of Pork, what I love about this place is the variety on the menu, all nationalities covered, the service is fantastic, with a wonderful smile,
It was very busy, which is always a good sign . Yesterday we had the Breakfast and the presentation is first class, even down to serving Tea. Lovely doily's
Well done and see you soon

“Friendly and Homely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We love this place. Always friendly, especially Mar, always welcoming. Free tapas with a drink between 5 and 7 pm. Always put water down for the dogs. It doesn't matter if you sit there for a couple of hours over a coffee using the free wifi, just go for a drink and the free tapas, or have a meal, the welcome is always the same.

The food is excellent from the all day breakfast, to the prawn salad, to a full blown meal, everything is freshly cooked and delicious.

Her customers are eclectic and friendly.

We're booked in for the special Valentines evening, and looking forward to it. We know it'll be good!

“Once you have been, you'll keep going back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

I have been to this charming little venue many times over the past few years and always had a very good experience. If you are holidaying in Estepona it's well worth trying to visit here early on in your stay as you will probably want to go back again. This is a very friendly little eatery on the top level of the port just a few doors down on the right from the main port entrance. Parking is often available just outside, if you are lucky, or you can drive straight on down to a free car park at the end of the street and take the short walk back. I generally go for the full English breakfast, which I think is the best in Estepona, it is very reasonably priced and comes in a smaller size as well if your appetite is 'normal.' They do also have an extensive menu catering for many different nationalities and tastes. The service is excellent, very friendly and quick.The seats are comfortable and the tables a good size, above all the place is spotlessly clean. It seems to be a very friendly drop in place that has become a very firm favourite with expat locals of many nationalities and very definately with the British who have retired here. Well done De la mar, your attention to looking after you customers has really paid off.

“always enjoy this restaurant when on holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

My daughter & husband live near the Port and use this restaurant regularly. It is very friendly, great food and nothing is too much trouble for them. A collegue from work used it when he was staying there last year as I had recommended it to them, they even made a special steak pie for him as he went in for a meal every day. My daughter who is now pregnant sometimes just calls in for desert as a takeway as so good. The personal touch is certainly very good and great value for money.
