“A return visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

We had the evening meal and the lunchtime special here in April 2013. The food and service were excellent as always. The steaks here are melt in the mouth and the lunchtime special is superb value. Only one little niggle, I don't ever take offence easily and I can take a joke very well, but we had one English couple sitting near us on the evening that we were there. The lady was lovely but her husband made it a little plain that he didn't like the Irish and went about telling me some very insulting Irish jokes. I was not impressed and seemingly he is a regular at the restaurant. I lived in England of a lot of my life and had never come across this before. Sorry but I had to mention it.

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

If you only eat in one restaurant in Torremolinos make it La Cacerola!!

I went to Torremolinos for my hen weekend in Feb and i prebooked the restaurant based on a friends recommendation. Well the owners couldn't have done enough for us 11 girls, they made it a hen night to remember. The food really is outstanding and the place is so relaxed, comfy and friendly! When the bill came at the end of the night we couldn't believe how reasonable it was! we felt like we were robbing them lol!!

Please eat here!!

“Tiny place, extremely friendly, serves the best ribs and steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This tiny restaurant is well worth finding (look for signs to Tina's bar from the top of San Miguel, and it's almost opposite). It's run by Tim, who does all the cooking and he serves the best ribs, steaks and his "chips" are gorgeous - not traditional chips. Assisted by his wife, and Sylvia, they are so friendly and helpful. You may need to make a reservation as the restaurant is tiny (and the kitchen even tinier!) Highly recommend a visit for an excellent meal and lovely experience.

“agreed that this was the best burger we have every had in our lives!!! and that's a long time! ribs and steak also 10”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Clearly not to be missed if you visit Torremolinos! Unbelievably delicious!! the burger really and truly is the best i have ever had! and the ribs and steak also amazing! no idea what Tim's cooking secrets are and how he turns out one fabulous meal after another...but I just enjoy every bite! For dessert....if you love chocolate, you can't leave without trying the Brownie. melt in your mouth gorgeous..
La Cacerola has a wonderful cozy ambience and you will love the people as much as the food. definitely a 10+ all around! can't wait to go back!
