When a salad is served with canned vegetables, you are bound to be disappointed. The food is slightly over-priced, but the staff is nice! They love kids, so feel free to come here with the family.

Very busy on Sundays so best to book if you want to select your table. Good outside and inside space. Friendly staff, extensive menu. Boquerones al limón were excellent, as were the calamari. Hake, sole and salmon were very good. Rose and white wine also good. If you like fish you'll like this place.

Went for dinner last night. Food good- however , have had lots better for a better price during my stay in Fuengirola. We only had main courses and 2 out of 3 of us had 1 glass of wine each. Bill was just over 50€ - lots of beachfront restaurants offer 3 course del dia menus for far less! Beautiful... More

A bright, clean, friendly establishment. Food absolutely fantastic. Fish brought over to the table to you to select what you want. Lobster was magnificent. Sea bass baked in salt was delicious. Staff so friendly, one waiter sat and fed a little girl who wasn't eating her dinner. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant!

Picked out the restaurant during the afternoon as it was crowded, due in part to it's location in the sun and with the world walking by. Went for dinner and had no problem getting a table - we were early by Spanish standards as it was just before 9. Service was fine and polite but the food was a bit... More

Food was good but service nonchalant and very slow.We had to ask check for several times and wait for it half an hour. Waiter was rude and careless. We have been eatig in this restaurant several times for years but we do not return there for a while so disapointed was the last visit.

Went there twice during our stay in Fuengirola, the first time was on the spur of the moment, we had the Sea Bream coved and cooked in salt which gave the fish great flavour. The waiter even took out all the bones from the fillets before giving it to us, before the main we had their take on Prawn Cocktail... More

We felt hungry. Had prawns pil pil and home made croquettes then the special paella. It was lovely. House Rioja was perfect. Staff paid the right attention and asked us to let the paella stand a few minutes before eating.... I really liked it. The bill was €58 which is a good price for the nice food.

I ate here twice last week and was not disappointed. I've been coming to this place for nearly 20 years on and off and I always enjoy my meal. Yes it's a bit more expensive than others in the area (though the Bahia next door has higher prices) but the quality is consistent and the service friendly. I can recommend... More
