We accidentally found this little gem of a tapas bar while out one night on our holidays, the initial impression of the bar is not great but the welcome we received was very warm so we decided to stay. The waitress / manager was a superb host and the food we subsequently got was fabulous. Everything was prepared to perfection and tasted absolutely delicious. Portion sizes are a bit on the small side but then again it is an Aperitif bar and we were probably too hungry to start with..! But that said, the 4 of us were still all fed and watered in the end for under €50.00, and that included a bottle of wine. Special mention too for the chef who allowed us to hear about some of his cooking methods and recipes, all of which made it feel like a really authentic Spanish tapas meal and a very enjoyable evening.

We ate with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren. We had a variety of different tapas, all of which were excellently presented and very tasty. Service was efficient and friendly and, we all had a lovely experience. The prices were very good, too.

Went there for dinner with the family and we weren't disappointed. We got great service and some delicious food. They also gave our kid a small surprise gift. It's a small place so if you want to be sure to get a table you can book it easily via e-mail or whatsapp. It's easier to find the restaurant walking down the boulevard. I had the address and it looked like a residential area so if you come from the main road just take a turn before the hotel (coming from Torremolinos direction) and walk down and you'll see a sign for 'tapas'.

Food was very good and very tasty but possibly the tiniest tapas we have ever sampled.
We had late lunch here and then left to find some lunch!
Great shame as potentially it could be so much better, unfortunately a once only visit place.

Dear costumer,

Thank you for writing a review.

Sorry if I don’t remember who you are.
Our tapas have a normal size as everyone, as you can also see from pictures. 2,00€ 2 cheese ball served in fresh tomato sauce or 1,80€ for tortillas with fresh avocado sauce or 1,80€ 3 marinated anchovies served with tuna salas and rocket and more..

Of course that if you want have a lunch/dinner with tapas you need 3, 4 or 5 tapas that at the end, here, you are going to spend 6/8/10€ which is low price compered to a restaurant where you pay 1 main at least 15,00€
You could not aspected a full big plate paying 1,80/2,00€

Tapas is a different way to have a dinner.
Is not 1 starter and 1 main as you normally get in a normal restaurant. Tapas is a concept born having some food while you are drinking. This is also a nice way having a dinner with many plates to try and sharing all with your love or friends.

Hopefully to see you again and let us satisfy your appetite

Kind regards,

Fama Aperitif Bar

What an absolute delightful bar. Manola, the owner, you fall in love with......so warm and friendly. The food is delicious....tapas, burgers.....and priced to suit the pocket. You gotta try the BMW shot (Bailey's, Malibu and whiskey).....lipsmakingly good.
The bar is somewhat hidden along the promenade but well worth searching out. It just past bars such as Palm 5 and the Wigan Bar on the way to the marina and up a slope.......a nice comfy, intimate bar to sit and watch the world go by.
