La Paella is one of the more elegant restaurants on the Bajondillo Beach. We ordered rosada ali-oli, rosada a la plancha, calamares romana, ensalada de tomates, beer without alcohol and a glass of white wine. The bill came to 34 euros only. Service was very friendly.

Great find in torremolinos. While salad was so so, paella was absolutely yummy! If you love paella this is the place to go. There were lots of spanish families eating and this is a great sign. Service was rather quick but waiters seemed overwhelmed and we had to ask many times for a single missing item and it became annoying... More

How can you go wrong with a mixed salad and two fish meals in a beachside location? Well we did... This place has come up trumps for the worst meal we have eaten in Spain and we visit often. The only positive we're the olives and warm rolls on arrival but don't let a positive start fool you. The prawn... More

Sangria is the worst I've had, the meat was very tough, waste of money, avoid this place if you value your money

Many from our group of 27 people ate here during our stay in Torremolinos. Those who were adventurous tried some of the local, unusual dishes for the US, cuisine and had excellent results. I had an omelet with shrimp. It was delicious. The location is on the beach. Very close to Hotel Sol Don Pablo. The dinners were very reasonable.... More

This was a really really bad restaurant! The service was bad and they forgot what we ordered and charged us for it! And then the food? Don't they know that the paella are made with saffron? Yeah, the food was yellow... Save your money don't go there! Warning!

While on holidays with my Husband recently we visited La Paella for dinner. It was very busy but we got a table fairly fast. We both had the fillet steak and it was cooked to perfection. We had two deserts and they were delicious. The staff were nice and helpful. We had a nice bottle of red wine with the... More

My wife and I had lunch at this restaurant on October 8, 2016. The food (Gaspacho Andaluz and Paella) is absolutely delicious. Staff is friendly and desirous to help with your choice of food. Music is agreable. The view of the beach and the sea from the terrace is splendid. A very pleasant experience.

Never really got started here when we decided to have a break from the sunbeds and have a bit of lunch. The day was scorching hot so we went to sit at the outside corner table in the shade only for the waiter to come over and tell us to move to a table in the sun wedged between two... More
