We took some friends for lunch today at Rilex and once again Alex did not disappoint. Our friend Kay loves hot spicy food. It was her first time here (and it certainly will not be the last) and she was very impressed with the menu. His restaurant offers something that the other restaurants on the Paseo do not have. He listens to what you want and is willing to change the dish to suit your needs. The food was delicious and the sweets to die for, especially the White Chocolate Cheesecake with fresh strawberry sauce. Another enjoyable afternoon.

My partner & I visited this restaurant in early March - we stumbled across it entirely by chance while walking along the Sabinillas promenade. The owner Alex was friendly and welcoming. Despite it being out of season and quiet pretty much everywhere, Rilex was still offering a wide, varied menu with some very interesting choices. Our food was excellent - generous portions, great flavour and all beautifully presented. We are regular visitors to Spain and now we have found Rilex we will definitely visit again in the future.

Friendly and easy, no problem to adjust choices to us vegetarians. We had indonesian salad and fried tofu, both portions were excellent, both good looking and tasty! It was so good that it made us take a dessert - chocolade fondant with home made icecream - and it was worth it - as good as the main courses! Nice to have something different. A reason to come back to this area!

Indonesian tapas. Poor quality and not a good idea.
If you want to try modern tapas then go to the Quatros Gatos in Vejer de la Frontera or try a few doors along at Sabores where the experienced chef is creating and experimenting with new ideas.

Rilex is just an average Sabinillas restaurant and its food is certainly no better than others. Do not understand how it comes out as the number 1 choice.

PS Have heard from other restaurants that not all the reviews are genuine. Trip advisor should follow this up.

Rilex is a very unassuming corner bar at the far end of Sabinillas promenade. And the only Dutch bar I kno of along the Costa. Anywhere. It has great views of mountains, sea, and super friendly staff and Alex owner. We've enjoyed quite a few relaxed visits for drinks. There's a beach garden and loungers opposite. Had some Dutch Indonesian vege dishes today. Wow! Top taste. As I remarked, the chef is enthusiastic!
