In Torrox again after six months and, a cheery greeting from Miguel and his staff the first time we walked by. Later visits to enjoy avocado and prawn or caeser salad, rosada or pork loin steak, and decent house wines confirmed that the quality of food and service here remains high.

We stayed just behind the restaurant and visited several times during our stay and have to say the food was faultless the prices where very reasonable, staff where super friendly and to top it off the children loved it as it's so close to the beach. So if you are a family with children it's perfect as they can play... More

I agree with previous comment about supercilious waiter as we felt the same. I had cold chips and an omelette which was like cardboard completely inedible. It was left on the plate and no comment was offered when waiter took plate away. I was not that hungry but we too were checking the place out for dinner but now that... More

This is a nice place to eat and to also watch the waves go by. Located direct on the Paseo Maritim, you wont be missing anythings.

Can't stand supercilious staff - and this place has one as an Owner. Visited for a spot of lunch, and whilst my wife was a bit peckish, I declined to eat, being satisfied with a beer. Once the Owner perceived that he wasn't going to make a mint out of us - my wife just having a sandwich - he... More

Serving freeze Pizza. This place is a joke :( The staff was polite, but the food was terrible. The most expensive pizza in town.

We had lunch there with friends. We were getting a bit fed up with hotel food. Plenty of tables outside on the prom, and lots of shade too, because it was hot and windy. Very pleasant indeed. We had home-made Sangria in a lovely big jug-probably two litres worth-really nice start to the meal. Menu was extensive. Three of us... More

This was our favoured coffee shop, and we would call here at least twice every day! Staff are friendly and helpful, in fact during the 10 days we were here, they knew what we wanted to order without us asking. There is inside and outside seating, we always sat outside and watched the world go by. Food and drinks are... More

We have taken coffee, cake and many late lunches here fro several years and it's always reassuring that on the first day of our holiday to be warmly greeted by Miguel and his staff, even when just passing. The food is always very good, especially the seafood, well priced and can be accompanied by quality house wines or German wheat... More

After your first visit staff remember who you are. This is a good sign, these people prefer quality in service rather than hiring staff at the lowest price possible, something we have seen a lot in this part of Spain. The dishes are good. Enjoy your meal while being literally on just a few steps from the beach. The parrillada... More
