Your 1.st choice for wining and dining is called Restaurant First, and you find it on the coast road between Torrox Costa and Nerja - on the waterfront side opposite the urbanization "Punta Lara".
Restaurant First opened in August 2010, but that doesn't mean that the culinary talents behind the scene are newbies. Not by a long shot.
The two German women, Tina and Simone, who owns the restaurant, have successfully provided great food, service and value for money to gourmet lovers for more than twelve years in their previous, very well known and highly estimated, Restaurant El Quinto Pino on Torrox Costa.

Restaurant First is split into two levels. So is the interior choice of color.
You enter the bar area from the street level. Here you can sit in comfortable black leather chairs and sofas in sophisticated surroundings and enjoy a freshly squeezed fruit juice, or a wide range of high quality cocktails and fine wines, while you browse the menu.
The multilingual staff make you feel very welcome and spoil you with deliciously tasting appetizers.
White Themed Dining Area
From the bar you go downstairs to the stunning white themed dining area. Ambiance with an elegant contemporary feel is the words that spring to mind.
The elegant and lavishly decorated dining area has the capacity to cater for 60 people simultaneously.
