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

We had an early Saturday dinner, a total of five people. There were guests at only two more tables at 5 pm. The menu had a funny dish, row 55. In Spanish "Rape", the ugliest fish in the world(?), was translated correctly into English "Monkfish" in dishes 53-54 and 56-58, but not in 55, where it had been left untranslated.... More

Visited three evening times in late January and have been going for the last twenty five years. Unfortunately, as usual when it is good it is very, very good, but when it is bad it is awful! On the first night it was excellent with a red pepper starter and calamar and hake a la plancha as mains. Terrific waiters... More

I chose the restaurant for dinner, it looked quite smart, tables looked good. When we arrived around 7pm there were a few people outside some quite noisy, I think only two tables were occupied with a waiter standing at one. He ignored us, no one appeared so we chose a table and sat down. A waiter eventually appeared with menus... More

Was here with my girlfriend for a night out at a good resturant. We had both just been up in the mountains close to Misjas, so neither of us look our best, but not scruffy by any means. We could feel from the second we stepped innside the door that we would not get any good service. We still sat... More

Visited on a breezy lunchtime. Warm and cosy inside the glass curtains. Attentive waiters, but not rushed. Food was very good, freshly prepared and reasonably priced. We were very impressed by the sea food selection and presentation. I can see this becoming a regular on our visits.
