Unexpected great meal at Los Caracoles today! Couscous is to die for and the homemade 'croquetas' resembled those of my grandmother. Totally worth visiting.

Stunning location with a fantastic view. The service was also good. The food however, was disappointing. The lamb chops were very fatty, the vegetables were cold, as was my wife's fish main course. It was also expensive for what we ate, in my opinion.

We stopped here for a break on our buggy tour. On the day we visited it was slightly hazy but the views were absolutely stunning. We only had a coffee but even so, was one of the best Americano's I've had. Would love to revisit.

We visited here to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary as it was within walking distance of our accommodation. We were a little concerned after reading some of the reviews but I must say we were not disappointed. There is not a children's menu however, they did do a child's meal for our son. My husband and I had the steak... More

I visited Torrox 16 years ago and heard amazing things about this restaurant. So 16 years later I was really looking to eating here. The drive upto the restaurant car park is in itself is a virtual vertical adventure! Once parked you have to negotiate your way past several sleeping dogs. The restaurant and bar is stunning, the views are... More

We had an amazing meal in this retro restaurant. I had the pork with a delicious raisin sauce two savory varieties of mushrooms. My husband enjoyed a moist well seasoned chicken dish. The views and architecture are well worth the trip. Staff's English is limited but you are in Spain, practice your Spanish.

we used this restaurant extensive lyrics last year , the return visit showed the food to be the same excellent standard, the only complaint was the standard of service which was poor to say the least, the single waitress gave the impression that she would liked to be anywhere but at work, a shame as it spoilt a lovely evening...

I was really looking forward to visiting Los Caracoles as I expected it to have something special. Although the hobbit hole set up is cute there was little atmosphere. There was hardly anything left on the menu and what we did have was very average. Looking around lots of people seemed to be leaving food which would suggest they weren't... More
