Gorgeous food, great service, highly recommended. A must for all visitors to the area, especially those who like great tapas. A good choice of both food and drink. ********* I am a big fan and will go again

We booked this restaurant for dinner in late March (saturday night) guided by recommendations on TA. They didn't open till 9pm so booked a table for two at that time.

When we arrived we were the only two diners. It is a trek from Malaga centre by taxi and the views are fantastic but we came to eat not look at the sights.

The service was ok in general but it is a very expensive restaurant and they had us to themselves so you might expect there not to be a problem.

I ordered Carpaccio for starter, which, when it came, was a modest plate of Iberico ham. i thought at 9 euros it was a little expensive for what it was and considerably dearer than can be found in the City. For main course we had sole, which was lovely but very modest in size. also it came without any choice of potato, just vegetables.

We were in the restaurant for 2 hours and for the whole time it seemed as though the kitchen had the radio on or a CD constantly piping out "Beatles" hits, not really appropriate we thought for the time of day and surroundings.

We expected a vibrant atmosphere and a little bit more all round but for 150 euros we felt short changed

We have just had lunch here with a couple of friends who were visiting Malaga on a cruise. We had to have lunch quite early so they could return to the ship on time, so we arrived at 1:30 pm and were warmly greeted and shown to our table. We had a lovely view over Malaga down to the port. The place is very clean and smartly dressed. we booked online and received an email confirmation.

The place was quiet but as it was mid week and some roadworks made it a little difficult to find so I was not surprised.

There are several course available to pick and choose from but we just choose a starter and main.and everything was really good and a few drinks so i was pleasantly surprised that the bill was quite reasonable.My friends had fish for the main, seabass and hake and said it was superb, I had shoulder of lamb which had been taken off the bone served with well it would be rude to call them chips as the potatoes were really nice even if they looked like chips! All in all a lovely lunch lovely surrounds.

A wonderful lunch that scored on all points. A great welcome, friendly and knowledgeable staff, beautiful setting - stunning views over Malaga - and clean wooden stylish look inside and, even more, the food was delicious and good value.Slightly off the beaten track but certainly worth discovering.

Friendly place with good wine choice and amazing fresh sea food. It is not the cheapest place in malaga but it is worth every cent. Highly recommend!
