We tried Tehuelche for dinner last night with friends and highly recommend it!! From the sweet bread appetizers to the skirt steak with vegetables to the ending of a brownie and chocolate mousse, everything was delicious!! The wait staff was very attentive and the owners are lovely warm people from Argentina. Prices very reasonable with excellent quality. Wine selection from Argentina was great with many options. Looking forward to returning soon!

Blue Dolphin

Reviewed By John77dk - Solroed Strand, Denmark

We visited The Blue Dolphin because og the good ratings here on TripAdvisor.
The location is really good and the atmosphere is relaxed and Nice.
The food however was a bit disapointing.
Bruschetta Great, nacho ok but NOT very spanish. Main courses was really Not that good. The fish dish was plain and a bit borring. King prawns was okay but nothing came with it. not a lot og choises when looking for spanish food. Burgers and fish and a few meat dishes.
Wine (Ribera del duero) was okay and we payed about 110 euro for 2adult and 3youngsters (16,14,10)
So okay prices.

Lovely restaurant in Estepona port, international kitchen, very friendly staff

Reviewed By Michelle T

Food on the whole was good, and service was excellent... but desserts were disappointing, don't try and bake scones and then try and pass them off as fresh, warmed, when they become hard, too hot to eat after being microwaved. They should be light and fluffy texture inside, these are like rock buns.. my husband had crumble, and in contrast, was soggy...not crispy topped..so main courses ok, desserts..need practice... try making your scone mix.. shape and freeze, when you have an order, take them from the freezer for a minute or two, then bang them straight in a hot over...tab dah.. fresh scones in ten mins

Pizza Taxi Costa del Sol

Reviewed By Steve B - Newcastle-Upon-Tyne

We went here for dinner one night while staying in the Globales Estepona down the road. Pizza was superb and staff were really friendly. It's near the side of a busy road so there's a limit to how quiet you can call the outside Seating but it didn't bother us at all. I thought it was good value for money too. Was a nice welcome break from being trapped in the all inclusive world of the hotel.

Mini India Diana

Reviewed By Lagerlout61

As soon as you arrive here you know your in for a great experience. A spacious, well decorated and immaculately clean restaurant with great ambience and atmosphere. We were greeted immediately and shown to a very spacious table considering there was just 2 of us. This was a great start for me as I hate it when you get stuck on a 2' by 2' table pushed up against the wall which is to small to hold your dishes and drinks.
The friendly waiter soon brought over our poppadum's and drinks. The poppadum's were warm and crispy as they should be. There is also a great selection of drinks including bottled Indian beer, local draught lagers and extensive wine list.
Our main course was easily the best we have had in Spain. Amazing tasting food! We had butter chicken, chicken tikka, sag aloo, onion baji , rice and naan. All very large portions especially the sides and rice.
We received very friendly service throughout our meal and I also noticed the waiters continuously cleaning tables an sweeping up any dropped rice or food after people had left. There was a large table of Spanish people eating also which is another good sign. We left at 11pm and people were still coming in.
The total bill was 45 Euros which is amazing value for what we ate and drank. In the harbour at Puerto Banus you would pay over double this and the food and service is not as good! This place is 15 minutes and a 20 Euro taxi ride away and is money well spent. You will not be disappointed.

His creative dishes are a mix of his personal and profesional global life experiencies. Fresh and seasonal products along with aromatic spices play an integral role in his cuisine.

Reviewed By KlausK801 - Helsinki, Finland

Went to Aba after friends recommendation. Early in the evening (we from north eat early:)) ) managed to get a table , even if the place is not too big.
We were received pleasantly and followed pretty much their recommondations. Even the glutein-free, no milkprotein and no onions, cabage etc diet was met deliciously. Deserts a must try!
A strong recommendation. A dinner for four with 3 courses and dinner drinks 140€.
The are relocating early in 2018!
