Ok I get it, Americans are not favored by most, but the waiter we had here wouldn't have a pay check without a lot of us. Get over yourself pal!! We had paella and a pitcher of Sangria. Sangria wasn't bad, but the paella was tasteless. I've had far better in the states. The atmosphere was great. Right by the sea and their garden is lovely. All the other waiters seemed alright, but ours had some sort of chip on his shoulder. He gives the Spaniards a horrible name! Overall awful!!!!!

Excellent food, good music, superb location! Nothing to dislike. Staff always helpful and pleasant. Specialities are excellent steaks and seafood or just call in for tapas or cocktails. One of our favourite spots.

love this place,one of the reasons we keep coming back to torremolinos,theres a real lay back atmosphere,good food,good beer, great staff,would have given it five stars only that the owner looks as if someone has robbed his wallet,but the lads serving more than make up for the miserable owner,who if he was miserable once you would forgive him but we have been here many times and his attitude is always the same,pity

good atmosphere with the gardens and lighting created outside. food itself was good, tons of meat. I had the port/beef kabab, huge pieces of both, well cooked but almost over facing. Two of my party had the pork with Madeira sauce - very sweet and again tons of meat. this was probably one of the more expensive places we went to on our holiday, but it is on the beach and comes with lots of atmos and lighting!

We had a party of 7 last week in Torremolinos. We had garlic prawns to start, and everyone had a steak which were ample sixed and perfection. The location is excellent and the staff are very attentive.. Only downfall, a bit pricey for some... x
