“A great surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

The restaurant sits above the motorway Malaga - Fuengirola by Bendalmadena and we have always driven past because of its very severe, concrete aspect from the motorway. We went after a recommendation from friends and once inside it is a very pleasant surprise both from the interior decoration and the superb view over the whole of the coast.
We were met on arrival and guided to a table with a crisp, white cloth . Friendly, helpful and attentive waiters served us and offered advice. The menu was traditional, very good but not exceptional. The wine list is good, reasonably priced with some excellent national wines and well-worth browsing before choosing.
Expect to pay over Euro 50.- a head but worth it.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Look and see its the best viewed on the coast period. The octopus salad is to die for. The chorizo and flava beans I've never had anywhere like it the bread is warm the service is perfect . I've never rated a restaurant so perfect even if they have stars

“Excellent views in a nice ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

I have been going here for years, the views are fantastic and so is the inside of the restaurant, rustic but airy and nicely finished. The service is good and the waiters are knowledgeable. The wine prices are very reasonable and the food is also good but nothing to write home about. It is well presented and nice. Bearing in mind the setting and the impression one gets when sitting down in this lovely local one would expect more from the food, having said that it is more than ok and we shall return now and again when in the area.
