Something has changed, this used to be absolutely the best in Torrox, but recently the food has deteriorated noticeably. It is still the same delightful place, great waiting staff etc. as I think most reviews say. The care and passion in dishes that we have had many times (we live here) has gone, and from being a tender, delicious delight... More

It's a long walk along the promenade but always worth while. The food here is quite exceptional, their onion soup, enhanced by an egg, huge crouton and cheese, is quite the best I have ever enjoyed (even in France). My wife's Avocado & Prawn salad was attractively presented, while our grilled entrocote steak and pork steak with hunter's sauce were... More

Very very clean. Attentive friendly staff and amazing fresh food. Wine selection is also very good. It's great to sit by the beach and watch the world pass you by whilst eating deliciously fresh fish.

Beach restaurant right on the prom along torrid costs, excellent location. Brought here by family that have been here before. Bruchette (kebab) first class, Sea Bass excellent. All the food loves spot on and plentiful. Not too bad on price either, I paid 10 Euro for the kebab and it came with lovely chips and veg, very good value. Staff... More

Ate here for the second time and our high expectations were met. Probably the best gambas pil- pil I have ever eaten. My grilled calamari (the whole thing not the rings!!!) was lovely and my husband's pork in pepper sauce excellent. Good atmosphere, brilliant service-altogether a bustling, popular place to get a meal just a bit different from the usual... More

Went there on a Wednesday night and it was really crowded. People seemed to be enjoying themselves, so it all seemed rather promising. Unfortunately, we weren't too happy with our food. One of us had cod and the other two had suckling goat. Neither dish was convincing. For both dishes it seemed as if the ingredients were good and that... More
