We last visited in 2009 so it was very nice to return just to find the same quality of service and products as before. We felt at home.

Something new: The excellent booking system in the website included a graphical selection of table. I also received a personal email message in English, as the website was in Spanish only. Just awesome. I had invited some business friends to join us so I wanted everything to work as planned. And it did.

We had a variety of seafood starters to share, the main courses were brochetas de rape, tuna fillet and lenguado. The wine selection included the best Spanish choices for wines to accompany seafood, and the house Rueda (verdejo) was great price/quality. The desserts were nice, too. The total bill was ok for such a good meal.

Some 50% of the seats were occupied on a Monday in July, ok but seems to reflect the recession. Hope the business does not suffer too much, as this restaurant earns its place for centuries to come.

I am absolutely sure we want to revisit on our next visit to CdS.

We have been to this restaurant once before, it is really good, and a mostly Spanish cliental. The fish/shellfish is laid out for all to see and the Paella i had this time, lovely. You won't go there for the service, it's very busy and haphazard, but its atmospheric as it once was a fish market and i've been nowhere like it anywhere else. I shouldn't think you would buy fresher fish anywhere either. Definitely worth a visit in my opinion, even on an industrial estate.

Best seafood on the coast so far! Went on a Sunday at around 1. It was packed within half an hour. The quality, quantity and price were great. Apparently a fish market in the morning and restaurant in the afternoon which is located in the industrial estate of Arroyo de miel, Benalmadena. The menu has plenty to choose from and is split up according to how it is prepared such as fired, grilled etc. We kept to the grilled dishes and enjoyed every bit.

If do you like the really fresh and well prepared quality fish types, shrimps, crabs, mussels etc. you should find this place, which located in an industrial area close to Benalmadena.

It's one of the best fish and seafood restaurants on the coast. They have been around for 30 years, starting as a wholesale fishmonger for all the restaurants (and they still are). By that, they fish their own supplies so it cannot be any fresher. Inside the restaurant, the selection and variety of fish shown is mind blowing, so many to choose and fresh daily.
We ordered clams and mussels, octopus salad, then deep fried anchovies (boquerones), rosada a la plancha (rock cod?). They have paella as well but I recommend staying with fish and seafood plates as they are many others in the area do just as well if not better. The service is excellent, so many waiters running around at the ready when you raise your hand or making eye contact, they are right there. Cannot go wrong with the food if you love fish and seafood! Love this place!
