“Super location, food OK.”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

Los Cano is one of a string of 'chiringuitos' - beach restaurants - along the route from Cabopino to Marbella. They vary considerably in appearance from shack to high-class restaurant; so does the food and so does the prices.
Los Cano is fairly representative. It benefits from easy car parking - turn off the main coast road at El Rosario - and of course has the lapping waves on the back as a backdrop. It is enclosed during the colder weather, but opens up when it's warm.
The food is predominantly fish, not surprisingly. The restaurant promotes its paella, but in honesty I have had better paella elsewhere. It does fish in salt well. Service is efficient, if a little unsmiling. prices are average, about €30 a head depending on what you have and which wine.

“My favourite restaurant in the world!”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

We have lived in Spain since 1988 and discovered this restaurant almost immediately on the recommendation of some friends. We were not disappointed and in fact held our wedding reception here a few years later. The owners, Federico & Isabel, are lovely - always nice and friendly and the waiters are just the best. Then the food. Whether you like fish or meat you'll not be disappointed. My favourite dish is GAMBAS PIL-PIL and I can assure you that having eaten this dish all over Spain and further afield, Federico's just cannot be beaten!
The situation is right on the beach with views - on a clear day - all the way to Gibraltar and Morocco. Great for all the family and if you have young children, just watch how the waiters interact with them.
If you go, you'll definitely be back - time and time again (just like us!).

“Excellent beachside restaurant”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years and we cannot recommend it too highly. It is in a good location on an attractive part of the beach, Playa Alicate, east of Marbella popular with Madrilenos in the summer and public holidays. The selection of fish dishes are to be recommended, particularly, the fish baked in salt. The majority of the waiters have been there for several years and are friendly and welcoming. It is also open in th evenings.

“Perfect setting, good food, right on the beach.”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

Probably our favourite Beach restaurant in the area. For the kids it is perfect as you couldnt be closer to the sand. The service is very good, resonable prices and unlike some beach restaurants you never feel as you are being pushed out.
