We really enjoy this restaurant for, a night cap of tea and cake Brandy. A full meal with great friendly service. Very comfy furniture. A great place just to read your book and people watch.

Right on the promenade, next to the beach, out of season there was a nice atmosphere in the restaurant when we visited. Staff were attentive and there were no shortage of them. The menu was varied with a good choice of mains. Food when it came was very good and we enjoyed the relaxed ambience that is probably a bit... More

In Torrox again after six months and, a cheery greeting from Miguel and his staff the first time we walked by. Later visits to enjoy avocado and prawn or caeser salad, rosada or pork loin steak, and decent house wines confirmed that the quality of food and service here remains high.

It was left on the plate and no comment was offered when waiter took plate away. I was not that hungry but we too were checking the place out for dinner but now that... More

This is a nice place to eat and to also watch the waves go by. Located direct on the Paseo Maritim, you wont be missing anythings.

Can't stand supercilious staff - and this place has one as an Owner. Visited for a spot of lunch, and whilst my wife was a bit peckish, I declined to eat, being satisfied with a beer. Once the Owner perceived that he wasn't going to make a mint out of us - my wife just having a sandwich - he... More
