“Very disappointing meal.”

The restaurant was virtually empty, there was very little atmosphere and the waiters seemed mainly interested in something that was on television.
Olives served as appetisers were bitter and vinegary. The wine was over-priced (by local standards).
As we'd been in Torremolinos a week and hadn't tried Paella, we ordered that - for two. It was stodgy, and everything in it tasted the same, which suggested it had been cooked much earlier and kept warm so all the fish flavours had blended into a kind of salty gloop. It was obvious that we hadn't enjoyed it but the unfinished plate was collected by the waiter without comment.
Very disappointing considering some of the good reviews on Tripadvisor.

Had a lovely meal her. Large portions and the food was fresh and well cooked. The restaurant had a nice ambience to it and the setting overlooking the sea was lovely. The service was friendly and just right.

We went as large group and had a 8 course Mediterranean dinner with the sea salt encrusted sea bass as the main course. It was all very very excellent food. The staff were wonderful and substituted a few dishes for the folks that were not fish eaters. We were treated like royalty. Even had an little elderly gentlemen sing and play guitar. He keep the mood light and had everyone laughing and singing along. Best place in Torremolinos!
