over a period of a week ate here twice all courses were excellent. May be because we visit Spain so often we enjoy the local specialties and go out of our way to not choose meat dishes. We reserve these for the mountains. We are hoping to take daughter and granddaughter there this coming week if weather allows and can... More

Had a lovely relaxing lunch here of salad and a few drinks. Really nice setting, staff very friendly and good service. Cannot complain about struggling to order in English as their English is far better than my Spanish! that said, google translate always very useful for the basics :)

We went here on a Sunday night, a little careful after the mixed bag of reviews we had read. Service was outstanding, very friendly and the staff spoke some English, enough to understand us, with our limited Spanish. We sat outside and enjoyed the covered beach section. We were offered two appetizers, melon with dades and bacon, and toast with... More

We ate here for lunch. Lovely setting. We had some trouble ordering as my daughter is vegetarian and the waiters just shrugged and said they didn't understand - even when I tried my best to explain in my very limited Spanish. I asked for a cheese omelette but that was apparently impossible (ham yes - cheese no). We waited ages... More

We have been here several times,a wonderful setting and wonderful food,if a little pricey for the area.The atmosphere is relaxed and for a lunchtime the views of the mountains and the sea are spectacular.

To say that the meal we were presented with at El Penon was the worst meal we have had in years is an understatement. My partner declared her meal to be one of the worst three she has ever had any where in the world. Mine was not much better anD frankly we have had better Tapas which are served... More

We noticed this restaurant as soon as we first entered the beach of Salobreña, it does slightly stand out there. So we went there for a dinner one night, and none of the nine people left dissatisfied. Great variety of seafood dishes, a couple of vegetarian and meat options, several nice desserts. Very friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. The... More

Food staff view all good. We all enjoyed it. We also had Spanish music and dance great. Perfect for a group . You can even find a table for two tucked away .

Lovely restaurant, service not only fish but meat and even pasta dishes. We visited on a windy day and they had put a wind break around the tables so you were still able to eat outside on the beach and watch the sun setting. Food was lovely and staff very friendly. I will definitely return if we ever visit Salobrena... More

The views from this place are great; it's such a shame that, overall, we had a poor food experience. The jamon starter was lovely - generous portion with olive oil toasted bread and tomato salsa. The prawn and guacamole salad was interesting - 2 prawns and a mountain of guacamole. Unfortunately three out of four of our parties main courses... More
