David and Jayne are so welcoming. Why is this such a find ? Well I live a lchf lifestyle and whilst there was nothing I could eat from the set menu Jayne simply asked me what did I want and was so supportive of my dietary requirements. No questions asked. All too frequently at expensive restaurants I'm made to feel... More

We were stopping in Estepona on our Family holiday this year ( April 2017) and we came across this little gem while taking a long walk. Itapu is a fantastic informal Spanish Restaurant serving amazing locally produce food, brilliant spanish wine and excellent value for money. The new owners David and Jayne were superb and nothing was too much trouble!... More

The quality of an establishment and its management is often best measured when something goes wrong. In this case I have to say that the error was mine, I ordered Singapore noodles and the waitress told me that it wasn’t on the menu but they did do a Singapore rice. I was deep in conversation but still should have rechecked... More

We weren't sure about going in as the exterior doesn't look anything special, but once inside it's tastefully decorated and has a friendly atmosphere. As the evening progressed several ex-pats came in for evening drinks and interacted with the hosts. The pizzas were good, different from what you get in British pizza chain restaurants and went down well with a... More
