On a quieter street from the square this place offers really good spanish fare. They had two menu options, for 9e and 15e. Was by myself for lunch, and opted for the 15e. A seafood soup, grilled sole and a cheesecake. Also included one beverage. The soup was sensational. Does not look much, but man the taste made up for it. A couple of delicious shrimps, some tiny clams and a bit of octopus. The broth was just sensational, could drive 100 miles right now for that. Oh and croutons are normally an after-thought, but now they soaked all that heavenly broth and still could taste good bread too. Grilled sole was very good. Cheesecake I have not eaten over 5 times lifetime, have to reconsider if they come close to this. Out the door with a big smile :) Oh and espresso really good too.

Last day so had to go back in the evening with a friend. This time gambas pil-pil and bbq entre-cote plus a chocolate cake. All very good, choc could not compete against the cheese cake though, not even close. House white and red wines were pretty good. Service was friendly and efficient, though on lunch I was forgotten a couple of times. Very helpful on explaining the daily menus and at least that waiter spoke pretty good english.

If you like spanish food with affordable prices, check this place out! Now somehow I will try to get that soup ouf of my head...

Very friendly and attentive staff. Very good value if you eat the set menu which was delicious and washed down with a very inexpensive glass of Rioja

My hubby and I ate our first meal in Fuengirola at La Casona De Paqui. We had a tapas lunch which was excellent. Selection of local dishes, rustic and packed with flavour. Prawns pil pil was the stand out dish. Favourite meal of our holiday! Well worth the visit!

Stopped for lunch. They have a couple of options for lunch and we went for the slightly more expensive 15 euro one. We didn't regret it. Had the prawns pil pil and omelette for starters. Both delicious! The swordfish main was gorgeous and came with really good chips. We didn't want desert but we're able to have coffee instead. Service good and all round very good value.

Stopped here last evening for our evening meal as the menu looked suitable. 3 of us had the set menu & 1 the lamb chops. The wild mushrooms were ‘different’ in that they were presented with prawns, but very nice. 2 of us had the steak, melted in your mouth fair play! Friendly service, good wine & nice ambience sitting outside enjoying the pleasant weather.
