This is a traditional family run restaurant also known as Paco's. Copy the Spanish, order your food by the plate and share with your friends. If you don't speak Spanish there is a menu in English - just ask for it! Highly recommended is the house speciality of braised pork cheeks (cariada) and the mixed fish plate (pescado mixta). You always get olives and bread with your meal. As in most Spanish restaurants the choice of desserts is limited - flan, arroz, ice-cream.

Have visited Paco's bar as its also known on many occasions. Always friendly and welcoming and serving food of a good quality. The seafood dshes are partlcularly good and the owners offer a good choice. I've found it best to order a selection of different dishes that you can each dip into. Good value for money, clean eating environment and friendly staff - great place to eat or to just go to for a drink.

This is a very basic but good restaurant in a white village just over 30 minutes drive from Marbella. The food is fresh and served by friendly efficient staff. We shared a number of plates but the calamari and rosada were exceptionaly good. Salads are also very good.

We went on the strength of the tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We shared 3 dishes; albondigas, sardines, conejo and they were all really tasty - I wish we could have gone for more but as it turned out, we were full after these. The puddings (flan and arroz con leche ) weren't anything special but no surprise there.
This is not a touristy place and may be a problem without some Spanish but if you can speak some words, give it a try- you won't be disappointed.
Full meal with drinks came to €28.

This is my favourite place to eat in Tolox. Paco and his brother Juan are wonderful hosts and the food is excellent. The ambience in the bar is wonderful and the place, on most days, is very busy.
