Spent a lazy Friday afternoon at Crusoe's beach bar. Friendly multi-lingual staff were attentive, food was freshly cooked and reasonably priced as were the drinks. Wonderful view from a table directly on the beach, the nice onshore breeze takes the sting out of the heat - but watch you don't burn! Not a place for a quick lunch - if... More

Had lunch there a couple of times at the end of March 2017. Entrance road on beach has been washed away by recent storms looks worse than it is! Just walk down the beach and back up to the bar - a little sand in you shoes but no real effort. Sea food is excellent and the beefburgers are to... More

Crusoes is set nicely on the Eastern outskirts of Estepona. This is a traditional wooden Chiringuito which caters for those seeking refreshment in just passing or for long relaxing afternoons on the beach. Evenings at weekends come alive with a range of popular acts providing for a fun atmosphere. Highly recommended for a visit.

Our first port of call when we reach Estepona for a large cold beer. Very friendly service. Lovely position right on the beach. The lunch menu (they do not serve dinner) was hugely improved in 2016 to provide really good inexpensive fresh food. Closed October to March.

Right on the water with as much sun as you want , great service and good food, perfect for a family on a budget but also great for a few relaxing mojitos or beers with the sea almost lapping your feet

Called in for lunch on a lovely hot day. Plenty of shade or sun depending on what you want. The Greek salad was very nice, but a bit light on the feta cheese.... Staff were pleasant and a nice place to enjoy lunch. Not bad at all.

Crusoes beach bar just East of Estepona on the A7 is a relaxing haven in a very busy holiday area. It is a popular venue for ex-pats in the area but is also keenly visited by all others. The range of meals available is good and the service excellent. Being sited directly on the beach, this 'Chiringuito' is also able... More

Chiringuito Crusoes Estepona, located on Playa el Padron right next to Laguna Village is a very busy and popular Beach Bar in a fabulous location just 30 meters from the Mediterranean. We open from March until October. Our menu offers the best variety of Fresh Fish and Seafood, as well as a mix of other tasty dishes including Meats, Salads, Snacks, Homemade Burgers and a Children's Menu. You can spend the day with us relaxing on one of our Sunbeds for just 3€ per day, sipping an ice cold glass of Sangria with food and drinks being served throughout the day. Also don't forget to check out our mouthwatering Cocktails and Fresh Fruit Smoothies.
