Best places to have tapas on the Costa Tropical


Dear guest, during your holidays apart from enjoying your villa with private pool or Jacuzzi, it is also important to find a restaurant or bar where you can try the best Spanish tapas. Bellow I will give you some restaurants in the area to eat the best tapas on the Costa Tropical:

Fogón de Medina (Motril)

It is an emblematic place within the typical tapas of Motril and the Costa Tropical. This restaurant is famous for its delicious tapas. Among them are: grilled squid, stuffed piquillo pepper, seafood skewer, marinated dogfish, grilled egg …


Lunch: from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (except Monday)

Dinner: from 20:00 to 23:30 (except Monday and Sunday)


Plaza de los Jardinillos, 18600, Motril, Spain

Stilo Costa (Motril)

Stilo Costa is a modern tapas bar, with a very elaborate and extensive menu and with gastronomic proposals different from what you will find in other traditional bars. It has a large terrace in the Plaza del Tranvía  of Motril with a great variety of tapas and very exquisite, although some tapas carry a supplement. We highlight the tropical bomba, the cabrales meatballs, the potatoes with bacon and cheese and the milanesa.


Lunch: from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (every day)

Dinner: from 20:00 to 23:30 (every day)


Calle Narciso González Cervera, 1, 18600, Motril, Spain

Bar El Paso (Motril)

The location is pretty bad, but Bar El Paso hangs the sign in full on a daily basis. It specializes in octopus, which can be ordered in portions or through tapas, free of charge, although in smaller quantities. It has a very small terrace for the hottest nights and its interior decoration is traditional. Octopus lovers can't miss it.

Address: Calle Antillas, 43, 18600, Motril, Spain

Schedule: Tuesday to Sunday from 12:00 to 16:00 and from 19:30 to 00:00

La Cabaña (Almuñécar)

Its tapas menu is the most special on the Costa Tropical and is that it is a whole booklet, with several sheets with salty and sweet tapas. It is located next to the Majuelo Park and just two minutes walking from the beach. We recommend the Alpujarreño dish, the tenderloin sandwich, roquefort and tomato, the black pudding sandwich and the meatballs with honey and mustard sauce. They also have fish tapas.

Address: Avenida de Europa, 27, 18690, Almuñécar, Spain.

Schedule: Wednesday to Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and from 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.


El Cortijillo (Almuñécar)

In one of the streets perpendicular to the Paseo Marítimo de San Cristóbal is the El Cortijillo brewery. It is focused on the consumption of beer (it has taps on the tables) and tapas and fish portions. Any of their fish tapas are recommended.

Address: Avenida Mar de Plata, 3, 18690, Almuñécar, Spain

Hours: Monday to Sunday from 09:00 to 01:00


Ajuliana Tapería (Salobreña)

Ajuliana Tapería is one of the newest tapas bars on the Costa Tropical. In addition to the variety of tapas, it also has portions, meat skewers and a daily menu for only 6.50 euros.
