We have eaten at La Mar Chica for a few years and always been very satisfied, so when Carol asked for lobster as a birthday treat it had to be my first choice. Our previous experiences of lobster were in San Francisco and New England so expectations were high. Miguel confirmed he could supply lobster given a couple days notice to contact his fisherman, so it was ordered for later in the week. On the appointed day we arrived to be treated almost like royalty. An image of the fresh lobster was shown and, eventually a monster platter was paraded round the restaurant before being placed before us. On it sat this magnificent 1.2 kg. dressed lobster surrounded by dishes of roe in cream, salads and sauces, together with crackers to tackle the legs and on the side the very necessary finger bowls. The meal occupied at least an hour, accompanied by a bottle of pf excellent house white wine. Isabel and her team in the kitchen had obviously put their care and exceptional skills into preparing this dish which was an unforgettable culinary experience that stands comparison with the world's best! Miguel posted a picture on his Facebook page, which our grandchildren were able to see that same evening.

You can't beat sitting on the edge of the promenade, watching the world go by, with the waves lapping against the shore and the sun setting below the horizon. And after being greeted by the happy smiling Miguel and shown to your table this is what you can enjoy. Good, simple, freshly cooked food in a great location, with excellent service.
Can recommend the "meat on skewers"

La Mar Chica is one of the many restaurants lining the Torrox Costa promenade, all of which have great views of the beach and the sea metres away.

La Mar Chica offers typically Spanish food with seating inside and also on the promenade. Have been here quite a few times before at lunchtime, but this time went for dinner and the atmosphere was quite special watching the sun setting over the sea and hearing the crashing of the waves.

We started with avocado, anchovies and tomato salad to share €8.95 and we ordered paella marinera (seafood) for two to share for main course €22.90. The paella takes 30 minutes to prepare. We also had a bottle of Ribera del Duero Robel red wine €14.95.

Above all the waiting staff are always professional and attentive. Of the restaurants offering Spanish fare on the promenade, La Mar Chica is probably amongst the best.

I visit Torrox at least once a year and visit La Mar Chica a couple of times every visit - lunch or dinner. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean establishment and I've never had a bad meal. It's great value for money and a good variety on the menu.
