Eating in Torremolinos
We arrived in Torremolinos by dinner time, but I didn’t want to eat before finding a room.
The girl at the door pointed the restaurant when I asked her for a cybercafe, and we entered. After choosing Tortellini (very good) I asked for the computers and… there was none – the restaurant had wireless access, but useless without a computer.
I cancelled the meal and announced that I would look elsewhere.
Immediately the cook (boss?) exited the kitchen and told me that he would lend me his own computer.
Noticing that Fernanda was not eating (she was sick, and the only thing that she could try to eat was a soup – absent in the menu) he decided:
– I will make a soup for you.
He went out (shopping?) an came with a few ingredients to prepare the soup.
Well… it was great, and deserved the good tip that I left.
Just across the street
Among the many stalls in the sand, this was the one that pleased more this time. They all share the “universal” recipes, they all use the tricks of fast food (french fries, salad, and… something else that makes the difference) but this one seemed to have the best price-quality ratio.
We used it three times, without remarks.
Address: On Bajondillo beach
This the only restaurant that we tried, in the centre of Torremolinos, but we did it twice. In the first visit the service was gentle and efficient, the food was good, and the price very reasonable. Overall, a very positive impression. A few days later we decided to try another place, but everything was so crowded, so confuse, that, when patience got lost, we returned to this already know place.Well, they suffered also the confusion of a exceptionally busy day, and the service was much slower than in the first visit, however, that was the only visible difference. I think that we were served by the owner himself, really trying his best to face the unexpected rush. Another positive point.
Address: In S. Miguel square
We ate in a restaurant nearby, and moved here to the desert. Ice cream, of course. Good ice cream, gentle service, nice price.In a single appreciation, a good first impression.
Address: Calle Antonio Navajas Ruiz 2 Local 7
Directions: Near Paseo Maritim in Bajondillo
This restaurant has the best external image of all restaurants in the sand that we saw in Bajondillo beach. We had just a lunch there, and it was a good meal… at a price. Nothing to complaint, but not suitable for each day meal if budget counts.
Favorite Dish: ParrilladaPaella
Address: On the beach of Bajondillo
My first meal in Torremolinos this year was pizza and lasagna bought in this restaurant to take away. Lasagna was reasonable, but pizza could be much better. And, for two weeks we skipped this restaurant several times.The strength of a single bad experience…
