“Pricey but quality”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

I am not convinced that the move from La Cala was a good idea. You have to be determined to go there. It's the best in the immediate area, but you pay for the privilege.

“Fabuloso”
Reviewed September 28, 2010

We are lucky enough to stay very close to the restaurant which we tend to visit on each trip out to Spain. We love the relaxed atmosphere, the fantastic service (Billar - the owner and waitress is wonderful), the wonderful food cooked by Gert and the range of wines. The patio is large enough to have an intimate dinner and yet there is still a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

If on holiday on Costa del Sol do not miss this hidden gem.
Lovely hosts and fantastic food.
The Restaurant is furnished/decorated beautifully and the terrace for the summer evenings is just lovely.
Check out the website..only in Spanish at moment..to give you an idea.
