Description: Albertapas is running succesfully the business since 2008. Awarded chef Alberto with his daughter Naiara and his wife Begoña are always supervising the quality of food and service along with the whole staff. In this family owned restaurant you will be delighted by the typical spanish context and natural genuine food. Special care is dedicated every day to make customers feeling at ease, surrounding them with a friendly and warm atmosphere. The cuisine is home made and genuine, proposing to guests a fusion between traditional spanish cuisine and innovation. Special and very famous are "Gambas al ajillo", prawns in garlic oil and "volcan de morcilla", a traditional rice and meat black pudding. Another well known speciality is "magret de pato" duck magret. There is also an offer of Teruel's ham, a typical protected denomination from Aragon. Wide selection of daily made dishes at chef's fantasy. Come and try. We'll surprise you.

My friends and I were wandering around the square near Torremolinos station, looking for somewhere tasty to eat. We were put off by all the Brit-focused places, so took a gamble and walked up an alley, where we stumbled across Granvinos. The menu at the restaurant entrance was entirely in Spanish -- perfect! We don't speak a word, but surely that means we can get a more authentic meal? Once we sat down, the waiters offered us English menus and were very helpful with our selections. We ordered the obligatory Sangria jug and a few tapas and hot dishes. The young eel in garlic sauce was very tasty; the black pudding probably the best we've had so far in our European travels; the stuffed mussels was alright, but I'd prefer just straight mussels. The chorizo and it's sauce was amaaaaazing (save some bread to dip in the oil at the end). The cuttlefish was also very tasty. The croquettes were nice and crunchy without being too oily. Anchovy and cured cheese was tasty but very simple. Prawn and bacon was simple yet delicious. The scrambled eggs was the surprise dish. Our less adventurous Canadian friend was looking for something a bit more familiar, but ended up with minimal scrambled eggs mixed with mushrooms, prawns, and young eels. He was not so happy with what he received, but the rest of us found it quite delicious. Great place. Boring British tastebuds please stay away.

Went there today with my companion for a late lunch. There were so many mouthwatering dishes to try. We began with a red wine and a sangria accompanied by some complimentary snacks. Next we had the tapas of txapela, atadillo, stuffed mussel and ham with Basque pâté. For the main course we had lamb chops and prawns in garlic--All delicious. Staff is attentive and prices are reasonable. Well worth the visit.

Went here with my girlfriend to celebrate both our birthdays on Sunday night. The decision was taken based on Granvinos Trip Advisor ranking and we were not disappointed. The surroundings, staff, service, music, waiting time and food were all top drawer and it came at a very reasonable price. Our waiter could not have been more welcoming and we were fortunate to find a place that sold real Spanish food rather than the generic tourist bars dotted about the place. Only downside was that we found it on our last night as if we'd been earlier I'm sure we'd have gone back.

Delicious food, great choice of wines, friendly and attentive staff who speak very good English (much better than my Spanish). Nothing to fault at all. The tripe dish is fabulous!

We ate here on our first night in Torremolinous, having never been here before we relied on the reviews, and it did not disappoint!!

We ordered the meat board to start, which came with some cheese and bread, we then had lots of little dishes to share which was the Prawns (which my partner claimed we're the best he had ever had!) the sausage, croquettes, salad and I'm sure we had one more but can't remember what it was! It was just the perfect amount of food.... The red wine was very good value! I asked for a glass of red and before I could ask for what one the waitress had shot off and come back with one but tasted amazing all the same!

Great value for money, would definitely recommend!
