This is definitely a restaurant must be visited if you are in Motril. The Tapas are fantastic and the main courses in the restaurant are even better. My wife and i celebrated a birthday and we were overjoyed at the quality of food, ambience and service!

When you are in Motril, I highly recommend to go to this restaurant. We were a bit early to Spanish norms, but that didn't cause any problems. The waiters were very friendly and they spoke a little bit english, and that combined with my bit of Spanisch was a good combo to get what we wanted. Food is just great,... More

We had dinner in this place and liked it very much. Very good and tasty tapas for a reasonable price. Staff was helpful and pleasant. The place was almost empty at 21.00, but when we left at about eleven, it was packed. Absolutely recommended!

We went with a party of 6 to this restaurant. We are not used to the Spanish way of eating very late so we made a reservation for 20:30. Needless to say we were the first. As the evening went buy more and more people showed up and around 23:00 it was crowded. The food was very good and the... More

We had a light lunch. Very good if not quite gourmet food, good service. I wouldn't rush to go back to Motril -really not much to do there, but if I happened to be in Motril then I would definitely return to this restaurant. Would be interesting have a dinner or more formal meal.

I mean expensive for Motril standards. Food was very good, even though waiters were quite distracted with their mobile phones and this could cause the delay and the mistake with my main course. They need to be a bit more professional, but their kitchen lives up to the hype
