“slightly disappointed”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This restaurant was only 5 minutes walk from where we were staying. 2 of us went for evening dinner, we had never been in it before, so decided to give it a try. The food was average, the service was not great, our waiter must have had a bad day, he was surly and unhelpful. The outlook on the Med is beautiful but did not make up for a disappointing experience. Would we go again ..... mmmmm........NO

“A CLASSY BEACH BAR THAT HAS GOT IT ALL”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

What a location overlooking the Med and a stunning beach!! And the surroundings , ambiance and food are all equally impressive. Far superior to your normal beachbar with lovely outside and inside dining areas all with tableclothes and quality fittings. Well trained and attentive staff. Excellent varied menu and wine list. Busy with local Spanish families mainly--always a good sign . Easy parking for once as well.Not cheap but not expensive either. Even close to Antonio Banderas villa if you like that sort of thing !! Try it--you will be impressed.

“A lovely restaurant right by the beach”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My wife and I were invited to a wonderful restaurant right on the sand. The restaurant is situated about 5 kilometres from Marbella on the coastal A-7 road to Malaga just off the El Rosario exit road. We arrived there at around 9pm (Spaniards traditionally eat very late) and stayed until 11pm after which we strolled along the beach watching fireworks under a full moon.
We were a party of 7 altogether and ordered a variety of food from Veal Milanese, to fish and Entrecote steak. All of us found our meals tasty and he service was fairly prompt.
The atmosphere was very welcoming and the waiters were more than ready to help. My only gripe? The male toilet was full of ants.

“Best chicken curry on the coast”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

This is my mothers favourite restaurant.
It is right on the beach with amazing views.
I had the chicken curry which as always was amazing.
The lamb chooses were huge and delicious.
Good service and great food whatever you have.

“Great Beach Restaurant”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We go to this part of Spain every May for a weeks holiday and stay in Calahonda and each year we have to come to this restaurant once. The location is fantastic and sitting outside overlooking the beach is lovely.
The menu as you would expect is mainly fish and we have never had a bad meal, the prawns pil-pil is great followed by baby squid was the best, washed down with an inexpensive bottle of rose what could be better.
We have never had a problem with the waiters, they are all spanish and very freindly and helpful. Can't wait to go back next year.
