The Picoteo

Review: The Picoteo, Fuengirola

The Picoteo, Fuengirola - Simply Superb Spanish Cuisine 8.5/10
"A Magical Gastrobar set in the Secret Square"

We were first introduced to this little jewel over four years ago, since when I have been a regular whether just for a glass of wine and some gastro tapas or a sumptuous lunch this is one of my true favourites.

Set in the Plaza de Chinorros literally behind the central post office (Correos) in the heart of Fuengirola the Gastro Taberna Picoteo offers superb food at realistic prices and always friendly but efficient service and alongside myself is a firm favourite with locals and a good following of tourists.

For me there are two spectacular dishes, the Kokotxas de Bacalao al Pil Pil beautifully prepared and presented Cod Cheeks Pil Pil style just sublime and the Corte de Cochinill Tostada Peras Salteadas – A slow roasted Sucking pig served with Sautéed Pears – however I am happy to recommend the entire menu which I can’t say very often as I simply have never had a bad meal there.
