“Danish food with variety and care.”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

A wonderful range of Danish open sandwich and speciality dishes. If you like a change and are prepared to experiment this is a good introduction to Danish food without being expensive. The staff are friendly and multi-lingual.

“Probably the warmest welcome and best service on Torrox Costa.”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

A return visit to this great Danish restaurant with a wonderful warm welcome from Brian and Michael. LA Pataleta is such a cozy warm restaurant on a winters night, we went on a Wednesday January evening when you can enjoy a "specials night." On offer this time, was a delicious home-made tomato soup followed by Meatloaf, accompanied with danish pickles, relish and boiled potatoes. Such a change from the normal menus along the coast. Everything was cooked to perfection, extremely tasty with great service. The winter special evenings, are for all you can eat, so if you finish a bowl of anything, they replenish it for you. All this for around 9euros per person, you can't go wrong!! If you haven't tried it yet, I suggest you do

“Lovely food and great service”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We went with family and friends and were made to feel very welcome. The Danish inspired menu is very interesting and was a nice change to the norm...the chicken filled with danish cheese was in a lovely sauce, and if you like your meat try the Paris Steak! Lovely shaded outdoor seating and a friendly place to enjoy the afternoon... if you go once you'll be certain to return!
