This was the best restaurant we visited while in Torre del Mar. We were greeted by Alfonso who runs the restaurant with his partner. His mum is Welsh, so he can help out with menu choices in English or Spanish and he's so friendly. We were a group of 4 and we chose a selection of dishes, with Alfonso's help of course.

We had:
- homemade croquettes (that really are homemade and were delicious)
- cheese with anchovies (doesn't sound much but it was amazing)
- stuffed peppers with bacon, cheese and leek
- chorizo in wine
- Galician octopus on potatoes (this was probably the highlight, although it's too hard to choose. The octopus was so tender and the whole thing was delicious)
- gorgeous fresh mixed salad with boiled eggs, olives, etc
...all washed down with ice cold beers.

It was one of the best meals I've had in Spain (and I lived there for years), so I was really impressed, as were the rest of the group. We highly recommend it and would definitely go back if we're ever in Torre again.

A big thank you to Alfonso for your hospitality and to your wife for her delicious cooking!

Have to agree with 450kate. Had three more visits to LaMonda and the food has been first class ,generous portions and served well. Why this place isnt higher in the ratings is a mystery to me.

Since last reviewing the above Restaurant, which we visit most weeks, I would like to say the standard of food has not dropped one little bit. The Restaurant is run by Alfonso and his partner and everything they serve is always freshly cooked and served hot. Can recommend the Stuffed Peppers filled with leeks, etc they are delicious, as is everthing I have ever eaten. The Restaurant is always spotless with lovely decor and no paper tablecloths and napkins. When in Torre del Mar can thoroughly recommend.

You can't beat this restaurant for fantastic food, any appetite catered for nothing is to much trouble. The service is excellent and you couldn't meet a nicer couple. If you don`t pay this place a visit at least once during your stay you will be sorry. We love it thanks to you both. Babs, Bob & Harrison x
