“Fab food fab service”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We enjoyed our choice from the menu, the mixed tapas, excellent range of unusual dishes. Also price, quality, service , 18 euro per person which included three large glasses of wine red, white, and sparkling.We would have had a bottle of wine anyway, so very good value as far as we are concerned.

“A new experience every time.”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

I eat here frequently and have done so since El Desvan opened in Torrox, February 2012.
I can recommend just about everything.
An extremely good wine list. (I am a sucker for the wines of Ribera del Duero)
There seem to be limitless additions to the choice of dishes.
I have yet to be disappointed and I really don't think that will happen.
One of my favourite eateries.

“This is the place to eat in Torrox!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Ate here once and didn't want or need to go anywhere else! Try the aubergine tower! Like jenga but edible! Delicious. In fact many of the tapas are different, all unusual but not expensive and the flavours and presentation are first rate.
The staff are lovely, thoughtful. efficient and friendly.
Can't fault the place at all!

“New restaurant in Torrox Pueblo”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Ideally located in the village square. Offers a more varied range of food and wines than the other local restaurants. Slightly more expensive but worth a visit.

“A cut above the rest”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

We have eaten here a number of times over the last year. A more varied menu than most and the tasting menu at 27 euros for 2, with wine, is excellent value and beautifully presented.Hopefully the competition will make the other eateries raise their game.
