We stayed in a nearby hotel and discovered this place in our first morning in Los Caños. Fell in love since then, and though we tried some other restaurants in the area, we could experience the same lively atmosphere and top cuisine. As it was on our way back home, we always synced our return from the beach with Castillejos... More

We had dinner here on the second evening when the restaurant at Hotel La Brena (Thursday) was closed. This is a popular place. Most diners came in for the tapas bar. We ate in the restaurant and had a delicious paella for two. The wine recommendation was also spot on. Service was very attentive and if we revisited this area... More

We were provided with a delicious potato and egg salad on the house. Our tapas were beautifully presented and tasted delicious especially the ceviche of octopus and langoustined served... More

We spent four days in Los Canos de Meca in September and ate here three times. Different dishes every visit and every one was just wonderful. There is both a full proper restaurant - where we had one lunch and dinner on out last night. They also have a cafe bar with the best tapas dishes for miles. For me,... More

We have been in this restaurant twice : once on the tapas-bar, and once in the restaurant. We have been so incredibly surprised by the quality and the originality of the food. People are very kind, the quality is great, the place is very nice. Certainly the best place in Los Canos de Meca ! I recommend it.

I would recommend booking this restaurant as it was very busy and we only just managed to get a table. We sat upstairs having a drink first on the sun terrace, great views. After ordering we were presented with breads and a potato dish to share no charge. First course we had the catch of the day, fresh tuna in... More

It's a beautiful place with a great staff, friendly and very helpful. We choose to eat at the tapas area, not so fancy the atmosphere but absolutely wonderful kitchen. Presentation and taste are mind blowing. This is the second year we visited and it keeps up to our expectations. Really recommend it, not to be missed

Has a very nice restaurant area,but we chose to eat in the tapas bar adjoining. You can still order from the main menu,or the delicious tapas menu.
