“Good Food and Drink”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

This a lovely restaurant inland from the Stella Maris apartments. It is very popular it seems with British people. It would be hard to get a table here if you had not booked and it was midweek November when we went so I advise booking.
The 15 euro menu which includes half a bottle of house wine is very good and as someone stated in a earlier review the puddings are really excellent. Good service, good food and good value makes this an excellent restaurant choice when in Fuengirola.

“Great”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Menu of the day takes a lot of beating, 15 euro including a half bottle of wine represents incredible value, came out absolutely stuffed after a great meal, great service and great staff. Thanks Jesus, will definitely be back.

“We backed a winner after a slow start”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Sorry, Don Jesus, you lose a star after keeping my wife and I waiting 40 minutes for our starter.
First time there, and we thought the snail's pace was all to do with the restaurant being so busy. Not so. Half an hour after we had come in, a party of eight sat down at a reserved table and had their starters in front of them before we lifted a fork in anger.
What had happened? Well, plain and simple, I think our order had been misplaced. Unfortunate, but these things happen.
The meal itself was a delight and tremendous value for the 30€ paid. That slow starter, mains and dessert were scrumptious and washed down with a nice bottle of rosado included in the modest price.
The restaurant is a two-minute walk from the Stella Maris apartment block in Los Boliches. Easy to find. If you are coming from the marina end of town, turn left at the Stella Maris and keep walking straight ahead. You've got it!
By the way, a 100 yards or so from Don Jesus (just past the petrol station on the right) is El Jardin, the best culinary "find" of our holiday. Five tasty tapas, a pint of lager and a coke for 8.10€. I urge you to seek it out.

“Great food, great value & great service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I found this restaurant three years ago and visit any time I am in Fuengirola, I have just come back and visited Don Jesus twice during the 12 days I was there. The food, the price (€15 for three course meal & half bottle of wine) and the service were all exceptional, be sure to be hungry so you can enjoy the gorgeous food, especially the deserts with 18 to choose from and the portions are huge.
