Description: Our establishment traces its origins to the early 1970s Its founders were Antonio Ramos and Trinidad Murillo, both natives of old fishing district of La Carihuela. With the rise of tourism in the Costa del Sol and more specifically Torremolinos, Antonio and Trinidad decided to build a small stand of drinks and snacks on the beach La Carihuela. In time, that little snack stand has become a Chiringuito-Restaurant trying to keep alive the flavors and typical products of Malaga food and the neighborhood of La Carihuela. During these decades we have survived political changes, 2 times the authorities moved the location of our restaurante, 3 times we had to rebuild the local due to storms ... But thanks to the unconditional support of many customers, some of whom are now in its third generation, we are pleased to continue to serve the best of the traditional Malaga dishes, like "sardines-esptos, fried fish and paellas, in a beautiful location by the mediterranean sea, to make your stay on the Costa del Sol as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

There's a nice view to the beach from the open window tables. The restaurant is very popular during lunch time and dinner so the atmosphere among the staff is quite speedy. We had the seafood paella, and it was really delicious!

Had dinner with my wife while on vacation. This was one of the more interesting looking restaurants on the beach "boardwalk". And it had the sardines that we felt we had to try while in Torremolinos. Service was great...all friendly and helpful. Prices were reasonable for a restaurant along the beach. But the food was not inspiring. I am not a food snob, so my expectations were in check. But the sardines, salad and paella for two were not great. Good, not great. The paella was overcooked so chicken, sausage and seafood were chewy. Just not well executed. The place has great views and a decent atmosphere. But we had better meals elsewhere.

I have regularly gone to this restaurant when on the beach....great food and service with an extensive menu. The fish is first class but you can also have burger and chips if that is what you need! My recommendation would be the rosado which is a local fish and seriously delicious . Good atmosphere and service what more do you want for a holiday lunch.FYI still to meet Larry! added bonus are the beach beds below the restaurant which also offer waiter service from Carlos.

As a London food snob, I was firmly of the opinion that the best seafood money can buy was served by J Sheekey or Parsons. Wrong! It is served by Restaurante Larry on the Torremolinos seafront

It is always fresh and beautifully cooked. Our (myself, my wife and our nine year old daughter) meal of lightly fried baby squid followed by a shared sea bass baked in salt and accompanied by a pepper salad was quite frankly one of the best meals I have ever eaten. We were back like a shot the next night, and the next.....

The meal was served to us by Jose who would not be out of place in one of the top London restaurants mentioned above. Jose is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. He will recommend the best catch (great scallops to start last night) and the best wines to go with it that certainly do not break the bank

I am not a meat eater but those that are tell me it is pretty good as well

Thank you Larry’s but, most of all, “thank you Jose”!
