This restaurant is worth visiting while you're in Torremolinos. From our hotel it was a 30min walk but definitely worth it. It's not easy to Find but a small cute restaurant with the best service i've seen during my holiday. We sat in the garden with candles and nice flowers, it creates a romantic place! As a starter the waiter prepared fresh bruschetta in front of us with a spanish sausage next to it. Personally I had enough with that for a starter but we already ordered a starter to share And that was more than enough for two. The menu is not very extensive but I think enough to chose for evey person. For main course I had the grilled pork with grilled vegetables And that was so delicious, the pork melts away on your tong! Total price of the Bill was 45€ for one starter(actually two with one on the house), two main courses, a bottle of water and a jug of sangria. I would definitely Go back, for these prices And the service you get. It feels Like you're in the most expensive And luxurous restaurant in town, I call it a little bit of heaven.

We found out about this restuarant from trip advisor. It is tucked away on Avenida Espana which is down a quiet road off of the main promenade. We were greeted warmly by our waitor and the service throughout our meal was excellent. The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was excellent. Myself and my husband both chose the set menu which was a one-off for that week. We paid 15 euros for 4 courses which included an additional appertiser of brushetta. The waitor brought the brushetta to the table un-made and was happy to show us what to do by preparing it for us! We ordered a bottle of red that was recommended by our waitor and it was delicious.
Our waitor was friendly and spoke good english.
We sat outside surrounded by the beautiful trees. We loved this restaurant and would recommend it highly.

Not long back from Torremolinos and stayed at Apartments next to Caliu. We went on our last night and it was fabulous. They have service down to a fine art - it was like watching a theatre performance. The set menu was 15 euros for 4 courses and it was nothing short of fine dining. Maybe not to everybody's taste but fab. They do your fresh bruschetta at the table, they offer a taster of a couple of wines. They only charged 2 euros for a glass of beautiful white wine. Don't be put off thinking it is too formal - the experience is fantastic - go and treat yourself. !!!

This restaurant has only been open a month , on the old site of Parillia Enrique Marin !
But you would not recognise it , from before ..... Ultra Chic décor ....Lovely little patio terrace ....Upstairs open now and available for private parties or large groups !!!
But MOST importantly ...SPOTLESSLY clean and OUT OF THIS WORLD FOOD !!!!
Owners Toni , front of house and Chef Maite are joined by Robert who also speaks good English and provides PROFESSIONAL service like the others . They provide outstanding quisine chic professional service and make you feel special in a relaxed comfortable atmosphere .
Excellent wines too and just watching them serve a gin and tonic or a barcardi & coke is a work of art !!
Nothing is too much trouble in this restaurant , they serve a great taster menu for 2 which is fabulous. But everything we have tried there has been great . And also if there is something not on there menu that u fancy or have fussy eaters ( kids for example that just want egg and chips) while you eat gourmet food they accommodate them too !
Everything fresh and cooked fresh ! Try you wont regret it and like us will be back for a warm greeting again and again !
Suitable for , couples , friends , business, family and I have even eaten there on my own and felt ULTRA comfortable and made welcome !
