“Staff need to learn a lesson”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

All of the staff were rude and although it was pretty empty and the staff walked past us at least 10 times in 45 minutes we had to ask them to finally take our order. When speaking to staff they spoke over us and spoke to other customers whilst giving us the food. Whoever the British man is he was extremely rude, abrasive and made us all feel uncomfortable. The group unanimously agreed not go back here again even if we were paid to. Although the food was just lower than average it was still better than the service.

“The Poseidon comes out on top again”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Just back from our annual two weeks in Torremolinos, my sister and I as ever made a beeline for our favourite lunchtime restaurant - The Poseidon. A beautiful shady terrace looking out over the sea. Delicious food from a varied menu, well cooked and beautifully presented. Whether you want Spanish food or other European and British favourites The Poseidon is the place to be. Manager Steve and his team including Debbie who has been there for many years are always on hand to welcome guests.

And they do remember those of us who go back every year. It was quite reassuring on our arrival to hear Debbie call across the bar "Steve ask the girls if it's still the rioja blanco!!". We had lunch there most days after catching the rays on Poseidon beach. And this year Steve's team are offering food and drink service on the beach. Does it get any better for lazy lumps like me and my sister Gill - you don't even have to leave your sunbed.

But the very best of all after extensive research along the Costa del Sol my sister and I are proud to confirm that the Mojitos at The Poseidon are still the best anywhere and very reasonably priced. We got into the shameful habit of pre ordering at lunch time for mid afternoon delivery to our beach sunbeds!

Thanks a million once again Steve, Debbie and team for helping us to have another amazing holiday in Torremolinos. See you next year.

Lots of love Chris and Gill xxx

“Great place to eat, drink and relax by the beach.”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Beach front restaurant with reasonably priced and varied menu of freshly prepared dishes. Very friendly staff. Can get very busy with both locals and tourists which speaks for itself.
