“Very good galician restaurant”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

We have been to Antoxo about 10 times the last few years and it is always a pleasure. The decoration is very homely, rustic with a touch of elegance. The food, both the sea food and the chuuletons are of great quality especially for being Torremolinos. Always nice correct service which sometimes can be slow and seem rude but I am sure they are nice people deep down.

“A restaurant we have returned to as often as possible...”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Antoxo has been open over 25 years. And during that time we have eaten there on many occasions. The seafood is always excellent, and though the prices are not low, they are good for the quality.
Good tapas, good service, good wines and desserts. The manager/owner Juan orders his fish from the seaports in galicia, and goes in to Malaga airport to pick it up himself. Definitely worth your while!

“Excellent Galician restaurant in centre of Torremolinos”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

Antoxo is a Galician restaurant located just off the main road in Torremolinos. It is in a beautiful building with old and attractive furniture and fittings. Two of us went for lunch on a Tuesday in January. The restaurant has a large refrigerated display of fresh fish. We were handed menus in English, which is helpful for those guests who cannot speak Spanish. Antoxo offers a large selection of appetisers, fish dishes and meat dishes. One of us started with the fish soup (€8) which was exquisite. The other chose baby scallops with fresh seasonal vegetables (€15), which were well presented and delicious.

For mains one chose the beef fillet with foie gras (€28). This was a large steak which was cooked to perfection and served with wild mushrooms and straw potatoes. The other chose Hake Antoxo (€28), which was a large loin of hake beautifully presented and served with clams, fresh vegetables and boiled potatoes. The hake was very fresh, firm and tasty.

For dessert one chose a Galician almond cake (€6). We both followed with coffees.

The restaurant has a substantial wine list (including half bottles) with plenty of choices starting from €14. We chose a very good Recoleta Ribera del Duero Crianza red wine (€25), which was very skilfully decanted and poured with style by the waitress.

The service throughout was impeccable and highly professional. When we initially arrived we were the only customers, but Spaniards often lunch late and by the time we had finished there were several other tables occupied, mostly with local business people. Antoxo is in a class of its own in Torremolinos and although pricey, it is well worth it for the quality and ambience.

“Beautiful Food, Great ambiance”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

We stumbled across this great restaurant and it turned out that we had the best meal of our holiday there. It has a lovely quiet heart to it and the food was delicately prepared. We had the nicest tuna that I have tasted and fresh salad and vegetables. The ingredients were superb and preparation to match it.
