Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Starting with the booking George (perfect English) was great and really helpful. Managed to sit out on the street which helped the atmosphere. Service was great from all the staff and although my Teryaki prawns were a little overdone the taste was great and the...rest of our food was good. Happy to recommend.More

This place is truly a hole in the wall. Its fantastic. It's amazing. It's awesome! It's the quintessential Spanish experience. The tapas, the entrees, the wines, the dessert, all of it. Our favorite was the paella for 2. Must try!!

An intimate venue in the alleys of Estapona with outdoor and indoor seating. We had vegetable paella which was tasty and authentic. There was a period of waiting for it; however the chef gave us appetizers and nibbles whilst we waited.
