Any suggestions or offers?

Have you eaten at Paco’s new restaurant on Torrox Costa? He’s opened a second Bar Choto Playa No. II just past the turn off for camping El Pino sign on the left hand side of the N340 going towards Nerja. It’s called Venta Peñoncillo and he’s installed a wood oven for slow cooked oak smoked pork, ribs and cochinillo asado and has a barbecue outside. Large off road parking through the gate next to the restaurant. Valentina and Luis are running things and will make you very welcome. Give it a try. Closed Mondays.
