Back at La Mar Chica & once again the happy smiling maitre'd & his staff didn't disappoint, with the sun sliding down the sky, nice food & good wine was enjoyed on the seashore.

Starting with the service, very cold and matter of fact! The food was of a poor standard, the lasagne i ordered was poor ie.i have had better supermarket frozen! There were five of us and not one was satisfied with what they had, my son had assorted fish tapas, which was all batter and no fish, which tasted like it had been warmed up several times! A shame because we were all very hungry after a long day's sightseeing. Best thing was the view of the shoreline! Definately would not recommend!

We travelled to see our son working on a villa nearby.

We wanted to treat him.

For a start this is the only place in Torrox Costa, that did not overcook an entrecote. It was pink and tender inside. Well done which is a rarity for Southern Spain.

We went at sunset and sat outside for a meal, listening to waves washing the shoreline, the sun in glorious multicoloured hues setting and watching the nightly circus of promenaders. However we had a table one row back from the promenade so did not sense the intrusion. There were the occasional african watch/handbag sellers but they were gentle and departed in literally seconds. If you do not want this then eat inside but outdoors is best. The service was good, attentive but not obtrusive and if you needed anything, a hand in the air always brought service from some staff member.

They take credit cards but the bank (spanish end was playing up) and we returned the following day to pay. How trusting of Miguel and his wife Isobel to trust us.

One of the waiters had been very helpful (in former days) in getting our son's skype working to contact us so we wanted to patronise the service. The wines choice was good and we 'pushed the boat out' so including a 10% gratuity (voluntary) the bill totalled 90 Euros.

However you can enjoy this ambience for a fraction of this cost. We noticed parties of 3 or 4 or 6 sitting around just drinking which is far cheaper if you do not budget for a meal out.

Some other perks of going here. Toilets are adequate, the Tourist information office is nearby but beware, they close for Siesta (www.turismotorrox.com). Also nearby, a portrait painter and personal cartoonist (work at night), a childrens playground and several souvenir stalls.
No problem parking but park on the main road (slip road) near the supermarket (Eroski) and walk down......between 5 - 10 minutes.

Regards.

Chris, Anna and Jordan.

I have been visiting Torrox Costa for 25 years and in that time have never been disappointed. The food is good and reasonably priced and the service is excellent. Would always recommend to anyone as a great place to go whether it be for a coffee in the morning through to a meal in the evening and with the sound of the sea within a hands reach who else wouldn't.
