A guide to the best restaurants in Torrox

Between Torrox Pueblo and Torrox Costa there are an abundance of eateries filled with Mediterranean and Spanish cuisines, as well as British pubs serving some traditional English favourites. You’ll find specialities such as garlic soup with grapes, kid in almond sauce and roast marinated lamb in many of the restaurants and the freshly caught seafood tastes fantastic. The promenade in Torrox Costa is popular with sunbathers taking a break to enjoy a light salad or ice cream. All Inclusive hotels in Costa del Sol also have their own meal plans, so be sure to check what your hotel serves. Here are some top eateries to try on your visit.

Sea views at La Rompiente

Choose from eating in the dining room – listening to jazz and blues hits – or dining on the terrace with a wonderful sea view. The Mediterranean menu offers homemade desserts along with fantastic cocktails. Try the seabass for melt-in-the-mouth fish.
