“Excellent”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Fantastic location overlooking the lagoon. We sometimes take the kids for lunch as a treat (can be a bit expensive). Evenings are a bit too formal for our kids (no chips!). Good for a lazy lunch or a nice meal with friends.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We have just arrived from El Lago, where we have tried the dishes of the new menu summer 2013. The Chef Diego Del Rio has done a fabulous work with the fishes of the Coast of Malaga. The proposal keeps evolutionating and its worth to go back. The atmosphere in El Lago is as wonderful as always. With a great service. Keeping the great combination of quality and price.

“Disappointment...”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I and my wife had dinner at this modern and highly praised restaurant.
The choice of dishes is very limited - and everything is pretty expensive (except the wines).
Food was OK - but nothing more. Looked sometimes a bit strange.
Far better restaurants can be found in the area - for half the price.
Would we come back? No - the ratio between food quality and price was too unbalanced...

“NO RESESSION HERE.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This being our favourite restaurant for lunch when holidaying in Marbella, we made it our first port of call after landing at Malaga airport. We had an early start,our taxi arriving at 5am in England to take us to the airport. Just to sit down and have pint of beer,overlooking the the lake in the brilliant sunshine, made it all so worth while. My wife enjoyed her goats cheese salad,I always order dish of the day without asking what it is, a lovely surprise when it comes and still only 9euros. Paco, your still a great host, with an excellent team. E lago restaurant is in a lovely setting overlooking the lake and the 9 hole Greenlife Golf Course.
