“FIRST CLASS DINING EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

My wife and I have been visiting Calahonda for many years. One of the delights of the holiday is being able to dine at 'The Look-Inn' restaurant situated by the Dona Lola site. The proprietors - Mark and Karen extend a warm welcome to all and offer a comprehensive menu, all of which is made of fresh produce and prepared to a high standard.
One of the desserts on offer is home made bread and butter pudding - served with home made custard. It is made by Karen from her Mums' recipe and is a dessert to die for. I am putting on weight just thinking about it.
I cannot wait to return - just for the pudding!!

“Consistently good food and service”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

We have been customers at Look Inn for more than 10 years when visiting from Britain. We dined here 3 times in February. Each evening we tried something different from the extensive menu. Dishes included starters of Camembert, home made pâté and Prawns Pil Pil. Main courses included pork with Roquefort sauce, chicken Provençal, swordfish, home made steak pie and Dover Sole. Deserts were in the main home made and included trifle and bread and butter pudding. All of the dishes we tried were of the highest quality. Service from Karen was attentive but unobtrusive. All in all this is a restaurant where you can dine with confidence whether it be a la carte or one of the special menus. I can highly recommend it and shouldn't be missed if visiting Doña Lola resort or the Calahonda are.

“It just gets better ...”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

First time back to Spain in a few years but the food at the Look Inn is still fantastic, excellent value for money and the friendly welcome from Karen, Mark and Dave ;-) can't be beaten. We are a family of 6. The only problem is our offspring are too old (and too big) to qualify for the children's menu.

I can thoroughly recommend the Dover Sole - not sure how Mark turns out such perfection every time but this meal is a must for fish eaters. The Chicken Stroganoff was a firm favourite with everyone and the portions so huge there was enough in the doggy bag for lunch the next day.

We were really looking forward to Karen's famous cheese cakes but not once on the 12 visits did we have enough room left to even share one!

“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

I have been visiting Dona Lola for many years and The Look Inn is by far the best restaurant for the food and value for money. Mark and Karen make you feel so welcome and always do their best to accomodate your every need. Mark is a great chef and his pepper sauce is to die for. I always have a prawns pil pil to start as its the best one i have ever tried. Karen makes all her woen dessers aswell and her cheesecakes are AMAZING! I also love the fact that they always try out new set menus aswell with special offers a plenty! You would be mad not to pay them a visit!!
