There is something simply magical about the Valparaiso. I've lost count of how many times we've been and it never fails to make us love it a little bit more. This was the fourth time we've been here for New Year's Eve and from the minute you walk in the door it's incredible. The staff treat you like long lost... More

Worth every penny, just a bit disappointed with the entertainment, the disco was rubbish, shame they didn't have some traditional entertainments on the evening, otherwise the food was excellent and so was the service!

Last week we ate here. The entourage is very nice even cosy and the staff friendly. The restaurant clearly distinguishes itself from the Spanish average restaurant interior/exterior that you find on the Costa del Sol. There was live music from a Tenor who performed a song or 5. Which was very well done and enthusiastically received by the audience. However... More

Enjoyed a great festive evening with golfing friends - really nice meal, good wine and efficient service. Added bonus of being serenaded during our meal with some enthusiastic opera! All in all a really enjoyable night, great venue, great people. Would definitely recommend an evening here for good food and live music.
