“Got to be the best tapas bar in Fuengirola”
Reviewed 27 April 2011

Was reccomended this place by someone i got talking to in our appartment block. Its only a five minute walk from Dona Sofia. You will find it up the street From Cayetano supermarket.
I have eaten Tapas many times on my visits to Spain,but this one has got to be the best.
All tapas is priced between 1.20 to 2.20 euros and for that you receive generous sized portions and they are beautifully presented.
Some of the taps i tried were the Blood Sausage in red wine reduction, Mexican mini burgers with quails eggs, Chorizo, and my favourite was Goats cheese with blackberry jam.
You also receive free bread and olives when you sit down, i thought we would be charged for these at the end but they did not appear on the bill.
we enjoyed two glasses of wine 4 or 5 tapas and two coffees for less than 15 euros.
Definately worth a visit.

“Good value, excellent food!!”
Reviewed 14 April 2011

My partner and I have just returned from Fuengirola and this restuarant was just across the road from our hotel. We had tried other tapas while we were there but this was by far the best. There were several pages to choose from, and the list containted everything you could think of! We ordered 8 dishes and had a bottle of wine which came to about 26euros. The service was excellent, and all our dishes were cooked fresh and brought to us as soon as they were ready. The restaurant was busy, with a mixture of locals and holida makers. It was one of the locals who had recommended the restaurant to us.

“1st Tapa's & wouldn't go again”
Reviewed 6 June 2009

We were recommended this place, but to be honest it wasn't a favorite of ours. There was certainly a wide variety of Tapas on offer and the staff were pleasant, however we had dishes arrive that we had not ordered, including one that had a long fish bone going through it which my toddler nearly chocked on.

They say that the sign of a good restaurant is when the local's eat there, which is certainly the case with Tipi, but for us as non smokers, the amount of cigarette and no acess to open windows, meant we didn't eat there again.

“Authentic Spanish Restaurants”
Reviewed 14 January 2008

If you are in the area of Malaga-Marbella and happen to be passing through Fuengirola or staying there, you'll find plenty of themed restaurants and loads of pizza joints but we managed to find few nice Authentic Spanish places.

This one was definitely the best, very busy, with the food on show prior to cooking.

Lots of choice, and quite cheap as well. Friendly Staff make things easy.
