The place plays homage to the classic Spanish chiringuito; with tables set on shaded poolside terraces with sea views. This is the place for relaxing aperitifs and local dishes that celebrate the season. The views are spectacular, taking in the sea, and the dramatic Sierra Bermeja, Sierra Blanca and Sierra de Mijas mountains.

The magnificent custom-made 5-metre long wood-burning grill adds a wonderful flavour to freshly grilled fish, seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes. This season we tried the sardines, and a wonderful sirloin steak on the bone. For vegetarians, there are creative ad tasty dishes like avocado on the grill, and delicious cauliflower ‘steaks’.
