This is a lovely no frills restaurant. The food is good and not expensive and the view is amazing. Right on the beach looking out to sea. The portion sizes are really generous and definitely worth the money.

We have been here before and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and outdoor terrace overlooking the sea. This time was no different. A great salad starter followed by some great hake and a well priced bottle of wine @13.00 euro for the house (good quality)wine. Relaxing after the meal is no problem and people watching is always enjoyable.

We have stopped and dined twice at this neighbourhood restaurant and enjoyed superb fish, fresh as can be, while enjoying fantastic sea views from the terrace. It's very popular with locals, always a good sign, and is great value too ( €15 for a large sole on the bone, €16 for hake, with all the trimmings, salad, chips etc) It's... More

We were staying at Los Amigos Diamond International Resort and the staff recommended this restaurant. It can be reached by a walkway to the beach from the resort or by car. It has fresh seafood prepared in several different ways, all equally delicious. We had the grilled squid, grilled dorado, tiger pawns, and salmon equally recommended. The most amazing part... More

Have been several times over the years.... sometimes very good; sometimes not do good. Lunch today was very good. Sea Bass, Dorada both fresh and cooked to perfection. Malaga Fried Fish very good too - crispy (unlike recent soggy version at Max beach). Ate outside in sun, with calming sound of nearby sea helping make us four happy diners. After... More

Just inside they have a display of fresh fish which changes everyday. I had prawns with avocado to start and my wife had melon with Parma ham both of which were very good. I then had grilled salmon and my wife had dorada both of which were cooked to perfection. We went for dinner so it was dark outside but... More

I loved this restaurant! Great view and great food. I loved the steak and the mixed seafood paella but the sides were the weak points here(soggy veggies and loads of fries). What I really loved was they didn't serve any British food! I mean really,go to Spain to have an English fry-up? No offense to anyone out there...I just got... More

Whole family enjoyed this. First a bit of beaching down below the restaurant and afterwards some great food. Prices are average and you get more than enough to eat. Kids got a huge bowl of spaghetti bolognese and the adults fresh oysters and fish dishes. So delicious! I can only suggest you go there and catch some great views over... More
