“Fantastic food and view”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

Its not that offen by the sea side, that you find a restaurant with great view and fantastic food to fair prices, my mixed paella for 12 euro is a fair price with lot of goodies from the sea. Its a must to try.

“Food with a View”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Visited with friends who live in the area and were very impressed with the food quality of this restaurant right on the beach. The sole in lemon butter was excellent as we're the flan and piña colada desserts. Plan on a return visit before we leave to try some other menu items. Prices reasonable for the area and the view was wonderful.

“Outstanding food, staff and views”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We stumbled across this restaurant and have returned several times. Have been to numerous restaurants along the coast but this is a well kept secret and our favourite. The food is delicious, loved all the dishes, everything is fresh and we especially loved the salt baked fish. The staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble and they are lovely, friendly people. Sublime experience overlooking the sea. What more could you ask for. Can't wait to return. Karen and Steve

“Nice people, nice food, nice location”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Right by the sea and one of the best Chiringuitos in the area. The staff are very pleasant and welcoming. The tall apartment block nearby has been repainted so it is not as much of an eyesore.

By the sea. Turn immediately right 50m after you leave the A7 eastbound at the AP7 sign / Calahonda.

“A real Spanish gem in the Calahonda area. Relaxed and friendly.”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

My family have been staying at a resort in Calahonda Sitio for the past few years and it is always a highlight to stroll up the beach to this lovely little restaurant 'chiringuito' 2 or 3 times in the week. Please seek it out if you are at all interested in authentic Spanish food (which is hard to find in this area unless you are into steakhouses). It is known for its fresh fish but there are also tasty veggie dishes, especially for my sister who is vegan as they could confirm the delicious veggie paella was not made with chicken stock. The manager Mauricio is charming, friendly and accommodating - happy to make our favourite tapas of padron peppers every time even though it was not included on the menu and nice complimentary olives. The atmosphere is lovely and relaxed which combines with a spectacular view of the sea, whether on the terrace or tucked away warm behind the big glass windows. And good flan too!
