Eat & Drink

Eating and drinking on the Costa del Sol

From sophisticated restaurants serving international cuisine to simple chiringuito beach bars, there are plenty of places to eat and drink to suit all pockets and all ages here on the Costa del Sol.

If you have a taste for the traditional then explore charming local restaurants and tapas bars where a cold beer or chilled wine helps to wash down a plate of Pescaito frito – a selection of small fishes and squid and a Malaga favourite.

Appreciate the smell of sardines being freshly cooked over coals on the beach, or tantalize the palate at one of the many restaurants serving food from around the world – from Japanese sushi, to Mexican tacos or Chinese sweet and sour pork balls.

The choice is almost endless.

For guests staying at our resorts on the Costa del Sol the nearby town of Fuengirola offers a great choice, and what’s even better is that Spanish restaurants are family friendly and welcome children.

Head to Marbella and stroll down to one of the many beachside bars and restaurants for a value-for-money menu del dia – three courses, often including a drink, at affordable prices. Or enjoy a walk around the narrow streets and shops surrounding Orange Square and people watch over a drink, with or without lunch.

Head inland to traditional Andalucian villages like Mijas Pueblo and discover traditional estofados (beef stews) and other Spanish delicacies. From snacks to fast food, from pasta to pizza and paella, there’s something for everyone.

And if the lure of familiar food from home is overwhelming, there are good value restaurants run by Britons serving a “full English”, fish and chips, steak and kidney pie and favourite puddings – accompanied by a cup of tea!

Self-catering so simple on the Costa del Sol

CLC Club La Costa World guests will discover that a fully equipped comfortable home from home, with kitchen facilities to match, makes self-catering a great option.

There are plenty of supermarkets selling all that is needed to rustle up the family dinner, or take a look at the fruit and vegetable shops, bakers and butchers, tucked down side streets and selling local produce at good prices.

But there is no need to be chained to the kitchen.  If you don’t want to leave the resort you will find a great range of bars and restaurants on site, many offering entertainment too.

Sip a cocktail at one of the poolside bars before heading off for an a la carte dinner at one of the welcoming restaurants – everything is within easy reach of your holiday home.

Dining out, or dining in your apartment – the choice is yours.
