There are many restaurants in the Estepona area, not easy to choose from. These are just some of our favourites. It's always difficult as anybody can have a day off I'll tell you about my favourites.
Estepona main beaches
Los Rosales near Flowers Square. Fish only.
Nice very popular fish restaurant in a nice setting, the food is always fresh, the waiters friendly, efficient and helpful. Best to reserve a table in summer as there are not that many tables along the narrow street. Don't use the menu, ask Paco the boss.

In the Chiringuitos (Beach- retaurants). Espeto de Sardinas.
The verb espetar means to skewer. In Malaga, an espeto refers to 6 fresh sardines. skewered and cooked over a pit of coals. The only seasoning is a bit of olive oil and sea salt. The result? Delicious! To be eaten with your fingers, and enjoyed as close to the beach as possible!
