After eating quite a bit of fish so far we decided on this restaurant given how good the meat display looked in their chiller cabinet. That said we enjoyed boquerones to start although the calamari wasn't the best we'd had. The meat kebabs however didn't disappoint and I'd highly recommend the chicken one which was beautifully cooked and really succulent. Too full for dessert we really enjoyed our meal which was served by a friendly welcoming waiter. A carnivores' treat to enjoy

Good food; fresh fish. Lovely desserts! I didn't like the pressure to buy a whole fish by the kilogram (head on, etc) and... a whole fish was just too large for me. However,.... the fish I did order off the menu was really delicious.

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
