Description: We are always looking for that tapa that will surprise you. With its combination of ingredients used, its taste and its presentation. And not only our food; we also recomend you to try some of our 15 different wines that we offer by the glass.

Happy that we Eat Here! We enjoyed it and Came back that week for 5 nights. Every day we Eat different tapas. Love the place, the food and the wine.

We sat outside which is really nice. Good view and no trafic noise. Problem is that the menu is inside on a black board. So you have to take a photo of the menu or go inside and write down the things you want. Seems there could be a better way to do this.
We had a variety of tapas and in general they were good, some were normal and a couple were really good. But there was not any of them where I thought "wow". Many of them were tipical Spanish and Andalucian tapas and they were made well, but nothing inovative about it. Seems like they use fresh quality products. That was also what the waiter told us about why there was not a menu at the tables, because it can change during the day, depending on the products they get in the kitchen.
Service is good and fast. Price is a bit higher than other similar places, but the views, service and food is good, so it is worth it.

Another great find on our Spanish trip. Great contemporary restaurant, lots of glass, open spaces, large outside balcony (assuming for seating in summer). We tried this after seeing it as no 1 in Fuingerola on TA and so glad we did, it lives up to its rating. The paper tablecloths with tapas instructions is a lovely touch, especially the section for putting your mobile phone down and ignoring it during the meal. All dishes were beautifully presented on slates, perfectly seasoned and flavoured, imaginative, creative & full of taste. All food came hot. The scallop salad was divine, the mini burger and chips looked fantastic, the monkfish with guacomole lovely and too many other dishes to mention. Great value too. Even the toilets were stylish, with music in there and lovely tiled walls and contemporary basins. Brilliant find.

My wife and I visited Al Rolo after reading a large number of favourable reviews. Attached to a hotel a long way from the beaten track it's not a place you would find by accident. Even now there only seems to be one entrance via the A7 because the local road to the coast is closed.

It's a modern well appointed restaurant proving a unique tapas menu. As soon as you arrive you know this is going to be different. The menus are on large blackboards, not printed, and set out a large number of different tapas. I won't spoil it by giving details but the table cover is also very unusual.

When the food arrived it was excellent. It is high quality cuisine served up on slates. The portions are not huge but are still very filling because the food is rich.

We tried a recommended Malaga local wine which was fine and did not see the full wine list. However, I suspect the wines are more expensive than others in the area. Despite paying 21 euros for the wine the total bill was still less than 50 euros and we felt we had had an excellent evening.

Service was good and attentive.

We will be back and can certainly recommend this restaurant to others.
