“Excellent Chateaubriand”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We had the best Chateaubriand ever. It was served seared then sliced and on a plate with a hot stone so that we could cook each piece to our individual taste. We arrived at 2.30pm and left at 5.30pm a fabulous leisurely afternoon of eating and supping wine, finished off with coffee and liqueurs. If you are in Fuengirola and have an afternoon to endulge yourself this is the place.

“Love this place”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

We have been to this restaurant several times whilst holidaying in Fuengirola. We go back because it is a RESTAURANT. It manages a great menu, excellent, attentive but not stuffy service, fab surroundings and food that encourages cleared plates.
Not cheap but well worth it. Frequented mostly by Spanish who know about food.

“Excellent classy family owned spanish fine dining”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

My family and I have been eating at this restaurant for 30 years and the only thing that has changed is a move with the times for more modern decor and a slight change of location. The food is and always has been traditional spanish excellently executed. The jamon iberico and steaks (optional hot stone for some) are excellent, as are the baby broad beans with ham and the roast lamp shoulder. They have their own wine cellar with some amazing finds, this truely is an authentic classy establishment that has stood the test of time amind the rapidly changing surrounding eateries. The clientel are mainly spanish as this restaurant is consistently patronised all year round by those who appreciate exceptional ingredients cooked exquisitley. One of those rare finds that is truely special.

“Excellent Choice”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

We new we were on to a good thing when the majority of customers were Spanish!

We chose a number of small dishes to share with the Aubergine with Honey being my favourite. We also the Patatas Bravas as well as some battered local fish bites. All were scrumpcious and cooked to perfection.

Atmosphere is typically Spanish and can get quite noisy late at night with some of the locals bursting into song, great fun in my opinion!

Perhaps a little more expensive than other places in the area but definitely worth the extra Euro or two.

Highly recomended
