Went to this restaurant for the last day of our holiday. Had Paella and Sangria, was delicious...and so huge we had to leave some! Really nice taste and assortment of seafood. Sangria was packed with delicious fresh fruit and the scenery was idyllic over looking the sea. Lovely last lunch.

We have been coming to torrox for the past 15 years on and off and every time we always come to this restaurant for a steak. It's been 3 years since our last visit and the steak was as amazing as I remembered it to be. It says something when you can return back to a restaurant after a few... More

First visit here having seen the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed by the food quality. The service was a little hit and miss, especially having paid the bill and getting all the money we paid back (we're honest and told them) but for the price it was all very good.

Nice place for a meal if you are spending the day on the beach here , lots of tables in the shade. The Gazpacho is good, so are the boquerones. Very reasonably priced. We ate here several times.

The food that we ate was nice. The paella for two people was large and filled with plenty of fresh seafood. No other mains are required if you order this. The service was swift and informative with reasonable prices. Making for a pleasant evening on the promenade. Worth a try.

We ate here on 4 nights of our 7 day holiday. The food was good and service was always friendly. Would definitely recommend this lovely restaurant which has views over the Torrox Costa beach.

Restaurant is good to have diner. Do not expect haute cuisine. Prices are very good. Staff was friendly but very rushed. Toilets were terrible. Dirty, no seats and outside
