Situated in a charming courtyard with several other cafes in the middle of Fuengirola just a very short walk from the beach, is the charming and friendly La Capability Tapers. The owner and chef clearly has great pride in preparing and serving the best Tapas and serving them in generous portions at reasonable prices. We loved them all!

Stumbled across this small tapas cafe nestled into a beautiful Spanish courtyard. (Wonderful suntrap). Service provided was excellent with superb recommendations for children. Food served in a timely manor and all cooked fresh to order. Taste is out of this world and there's nothing we ordered left to waste. Excellent value for money and well worth the visit.

Came here totally out of season, and the guy running the place kept it open just for us as we'd given him a heads up we were coming. We had him all to ourselves, and didn't bother with menus, we just sat inside with him and trusted him to cook us up his favourite things. He was charming and polite,... More

Set in a large Spanish courtyard, (Edificio Yate Plaza) bordered by C./Cuesta and c./Palangreros, La Cepa is a small taperia with a big reputation. Patron/chef, Jesus, is the perfect host and prides himself on cooking the way he would cook for his family. I would say, "lucky family" but for the fact that Jesus is open every night; I hope...

Been to this restaurant twice this week, on the first visit we had prawn pil-pil for one of the dishes and it was the best we have ever had, we wanted Paella but the owner said he required 24 hours notice for this dish and so we arranged to go back a few days later after ordering the seafood Paella,...

Jesus described his food as what he would cook for his family. It was delightful, I have never been fed as well as this and he is true gentleman. His staff member as well was very friendly. I really hope that more people try his food.
