We have visited this restaurant before and wanted to dine outside on their terrace. We both had the set meal of the day and as usual was served beautifully and tasted delicious. The waiter paid meticulous attention to detail when pouring our gin and tonics....A little gem definitely worth a visit.More

Visited this restuarant years ago and was a great meal, taken over by the sons on the owners retirement and it is now a wow wonderful food and ambience place to be and eat. My husband asked for a gin and tonic and a little...table with the ingredients was set up and the "waiter/owner" produced the best gin and tonic ever with a theatrical flourish. The food was amazing, great choices and it was hard to decide, everything arrived wonderfully presented and tasting fantastic. I would think booking is essential even in February the restuarant was full. Will be visiting again next year!More

Wow! I’m not surprised that this restaurant is Number 1 on trip advisor. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and all the family rated it 10/10. We received a very friendly welcome and the waiter was very polite and attentive throughout the evening. We decided to go...for the set menu and were so glad we did. The soup and courgette rolls were so tasty and the courgette rolls were beautifully presented. The seafood tagliatelle was delicious. The hake was perfectly cooked and my son said the chicken was the best he’d ever tasted! We didn’t have a lot of room for dessert so the ice cream was chosen. We were then treated to a baileys and my children received a bowl of sweets. We were only visiting for a few days. If we were there longer, we’d definitely return. Exquisite food at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend this place.More

It's probably about a mile+? from your hotel, up a side street. Near(ish) Hotel Sol House Costa Del Sol. First time, may be easier to jump in a taxi as not that easy to find. worth booking before travelling. Cheers John
