We visited La Solana a few days ago.
The restaurant is very well located near the promenade in Fuengirola but it doesn't attract crowd of tourists as other places in the area. This restaurant is a bit more elegant and refine than other in the area.
The deco is really nice, simple and fresh. The staff friendly and attentive and the food really good.
We shared the prawn starter which came after a small and delicious appetizer from the house. Gazpacho with strawberry and fish croquettes. Both absolutely divine. The prawn starter was excellent and very well cooked. I had a fish dish and my partner had the lamb. My fish was really good as the lamb. We dined with a bottle of really good Albarino. The bill came at a reasonable price and worth the quality of food and service.
I would definitely recommend it.

Excellent service and a very modern restaurant. Quite different to the typical Spanish restaurants. Beautiful food and many 'surprise' courses from the chef. Would recommend this .... a little bit more expensive than other Spanish restaurants in Fuengirola.

Currently in the top 5 for Fuengirola. Quickly reserved and booked a table in the Tripadviser app and found a parking place in a parking garage, as street parking is difficult.

Service was impeccable, very attentive servers. Inside ambience was upscale for a beach resort town.

Unfortunately food didn't live up to expectations. As a larger family, we tried the fresh fish of the day, both the Tuna and the King Mackerel. The mackerel was advertised as charcoal grilled, but the flavor was pretty bland. The tuna was tender but that's about it. The lamb plate and and the pork plate in the main plate menu were good. Not outstanding, but good.

The highlight was probably the starter tapa of Iberian Beef wrapped in pastry, but even that mostly tasted of a generic sweet chili sauce.

Really had a pleasant experience and wanted to love this place, but with average food, I wouldn't recommend as a place to seek out unless you are already on the beaten path.

We had a great dinner at La Solana yesterday! Attentive and welcoming service, and the food was absolutely awesome! In my opinion finding a really good restaurant in Fuengirola is hard, as most restaurants here are nothing more than decent places for the hordes of tourists to get a meal, often consisting of meat and vegetables that are overcooked, with little or no sauce. That is why it was a bit depressing seeing that La Solana was 3/4 empty, because this is by far the best food I have had in (and around) Fuengirola. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, and for the quality of food it is almost ridiculously cheap. I'm a bit wary of recommending it, because I would really like it to be a well kept secret. However, they deserve all the guests they can get, so I recommend this place from the bottom of my heart!

Must be one of the best restaurants in Fuengirola and at a very reasonable price. Very interesting and presentable Spanish cuisine with an international touch and interpretation. The aperitifs in-between the courses rounds off a very good experience in combination with the enthusiastic presentation by the staff/owner of the dishes.
Great atmosphere and decor. Highly recommendable!
