“El Picadero - Consistent over the years”
Reviewed 10 November 2009

El Picadero is one of several restaurants on the wide walkway running along the coast from Torrox Costa Lighthouse site to Hotel Riu Ferrara . Ignore the map - El Picadero is on the 'Paseo Maritimo', right on the beach. It is a family run business, and has had a consistently good menu over the years. They have a comprehensive menu, with plenty of choice from meats to traditional fish dishes - calamaritos (small squid in batter) worth trying if you want something different.
Yes - there are delays during busy periods, but you're on holiday - relax with a glass of (house) wine, and go with the flow.
It is NOT one of the cheapest, so would lose points on value.
Staff are attentive and tend to be more formal than friendly (not meant as a criticism).
Overall, well worth a visit if you are in the area.
