Reviewed 29 September 2021 via mobile

While walking around Arroyo De La Miel on a very warm afternoon we decided to have a few beers in this superb taberna.
Taberna Del Volapie is a fantastic taberna on Av.de la Constitucíon that offer's a very good food and drinks range.This excellent taberna has a fantastic interior with plenty of interesting features relating to this area of Spain.With a fantastic bar and exquisite Spanish tiling throughout the whole interior and superb seating option's and as all the bars/cafes and restaurants have a superb outside seating area.
When we visited early in the afternoon this taberna wasn't that busy so we decided to sit outside and had a superb local brewed beer from Cervecería Victoria that can be found in many Spanish bars/cafes around the Costa Del Sol region as this brewery is in Málaga and has been brewing its beers there since 1928.
Taberna Del Volapie is well worth visiting if you are in Arroyo de la Miel and is so easy to find from Arroyo de la Miel train station its a couple of minutes walk.(This is my first review of Taberna Del Volapie).
Opening Hours.
Monday-Sunday-12.00-00.30.

Went with a friend for lunch. The staff were very friendly and the place was clean. Most of the food was good however a few dishes were lacking. The salmorejo was delicious but very overpriced. We had a seared tuna that was very good. A salad of salmon, mango and cheese was odd. Absolutely no dressing so the lettuce was very dry and the fish and cheese combo left me feeling a little off. The wine was very good. Drinks are a good price but food is overpriced in my opinion. 2 women sharing a few dishes and it was 65€

Went for tapas with the family composed of 6 adults and 3 kids. Service was ok but not friendly. Food was average, pretending to be fancy tapas without delivering on taste and and very scarce in quantity. Main grumble is the poor value for money. Good location but wish we'd gone to one of the places next door... probably a good place for a tapa and a beer with a friend for a chat.

My partner and I had walked past this on a previous evening and thought what a lovely atmosphere it had. We decided to visit this evening and were disappointed. We ordered our drinks which came quickly so we were off to a good start. We ordered prawns, potatoes bravas, calamari and chicken pieces. The prawns were the best bit and somehow suspect that's because they didn't involve the restaurant doing any actual cooking! We felt like we were sat in a glorified wetherspoons. The potatoe bravas came which was essentially deep fat fried frozen potatoes covered in a paprika sauce. Nice but not what you expect considering the price paid. We were then graced with the chicken. Our initial thoughts were it looked over cooked as it was dark in colour. I cut into the pieces before eating... Thank god as the chicken was raw! When we mentioned to the waiter he gave a quick sorry and disappeared. Out came the calamari which was fine. The chicken reappeared about 30 seconds later and were told 'all sorted now'. They had removed the pieces that were raw and had brought the same chicken out again, this therefore meant we were missing half of the original amount! I felt very wary while eating. Very bland also. Overall a disappointing evening with only one member of staff working outside when it was heaving. Won't be returning.
