“Excellent family run restaurant”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

This restaurant is run by the very sweet and super friendly family Garcia.
Their service is excellent and the prices are moderate.
I strongly recommend their seafood that always is very fresh and is wonderfully cooked.
The restaurant is located at the back of the apartment complex Sofia and is therefore always in the cool shade and away from busy trafic.
Go there! You won't regret it. I promise.

“A Family Favourite”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

On a recent trip to Fuengirola we were very disappointed to see that El Parasol no longer exists on Avenida de Mijas. By pure chance we bumped into a waiter who used to work there who told us that it had moved to a walking street in front of the Mosque (between calle Mendez Nuñez and the Paseo Marítimo going towards the castle).

As always we had a superb meal! The range of fish and shellfish available is still as astonishing as ever and the quality was as excellent as always - the meal was delicious (definitely order 'coquinas' if available there as they are outstanding). The new El Parasol is a much bigger restaurant than the previous one and the owner is delighted that so many of his previous clients are using the new place - the atmosphere hasn't been lost with the move. It's a family favourite and looking forward to the next visit.

“Excellent local restaurant in Fuengirola”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

An excellent local restaurant serving Spanish food; fresh fish (displayed in a boat outside the restaurant!), great tapas. Great for lunch or dinner. On Avenida De Mijas on a corner with Calle Cordoba. Open year around and popular with locals; a real find. We visited Parasol several times during our stay in Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol and had delicious food each time. Gambas, mejillones, dorada, patatas bravas, salads etc. This is great simple food, reasonably priced and totally authentic. Simple yet effective. Closed Wednesdays I think.
