Samothraki: We came across a cute little Greek Restaurant on the paseo in Torrox Costa. It is a little difficult to find as it is in a side lane off the paseo. The name is “Samothraki” and the address is Paseo maritmo, Bloque 80, Baja. The food and service is excellent and the prices very reasonable. We shall return and highly recommended.
