It's five years since we last ate at and reviewed this restaurant but it is still a must for us to dine at whoever we are in Torremolinos. From the opening (free) plate of lightly battered aubergine slices to the inevitable array of snack foods on the canapés tray, then on to the main course - we had swordfish steak,... More

You are given a massive assortment of canapes on the house and all the meal portions are generous so do come with a... More

We had the menu of the day with 17 euros, including a glass of wine, starters, fried sole as main course and desserts. One of the best restaurants we've visited in Torremolinos.

Went here with a group of friends. The food was lovely, the service friendly and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The only problem - we ate too much. Great canapes. I've been here before but I will be back again.

What a wonderful wonderful night! The service was excellent - Juan and his staff were fantastic. You wouldnt get better service anywhere ! The sense of pride and pleasure that they put into every dish was amazing. As the other reviews say, the canapes were HUGE, lovely and tasty but huge. Keep some space for the rest of the meal....

My wife and I visited this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel reception. From the outside, it does not look much and you might easily pass it by. Inside it is more homely and the staff are extremely friendly. If you have a big appetite then you will not be disappointed here. We opted just to have a main... More
