This place is always busy, and have tried here a couple of times, hoping to find out why? 3rd visit and we still havn't found it. - I will only write about this visit, as the previous times were just as uninteresting. Compared how many eateries there are in this area, I find this expensive and very underwhelming. At the... More

We went here because of a recommendation from our hotel and the place was absolutely wonderful. We asked the waiter to recommend som different tapas from the menu. We got 5 different, small dishes and they all tasted amazing. Go here if you want to have a taste of the real Spain and avoid the expensive tourist places. The best... More

Without doubt the highlight of my stay was 2 visits to this place. Tried to arrive 5 minutes after opening as within half an hour there wasn`t a table spare. Recommendation from the waiter was for the cheapest wine on the Menu which was ideal to accompany our food. We were also advised not to over-order amount of dishes due... More

Tried here after reading the great reviews. Very busy even on a Tuesday evening and full of Spanish which was a good sign. Varied menu and tasty tapas but portions were much bigger than at any other tapas so we over ordered. The croquettes were fantastic and we also really enjoyed the octopus salad. Great tapas bar just don't order... More

I was recommended this place by a Spanish friend. We have been well treated over the last week in a variety of places, none of which I would complain about, except they were clearly set up for the huge visiting tourist population. I requested a place that is for the locals, not the tourists, My friend gave me 2 recommendations... More

This is tapas place. We ordered different tapas but quality changed. Some was good but not all. Some comes to the table on top of the paper. I don't like to see this kind of in good restaurant. Otherwise good place. Special thanks to wine list, it is very good to compare many other Torremolinos restaurants.

There was a 20-30 minute wait for a table at this small, bustling restaurant, despite there being empty tables galore at those beside this establishment. Great service, attentive yet unobtrusive waiters and stunning food.
