If you’re looking for a sports bar with excellent food, Paseo 100 is the place to be.
Known also as the usual hangout of the Finnish community, Paseo 100 has been a regular stopover of mine for a few years, ever since they opened up after the pandemic.
I have been dining here many times over the years, but only on the last visit did I finally bring the camera, so here is a short review.
Located on the promenade street of Paseo Maritimo and offering beautiful sea views, the restaurant’s name is derived from its location – it’s located at Paseo Maritimo 100.
This area of Fuengirola (Torreblanca) is relatively peaceful compared to the rest of the city, so it’s a nice place to enjoy a drink or dinner with a nice view, although the road can be quite busy and loud.
Even though the promenade is lined with chiringuitos and restaurants to no end, finding a decent one is a bit of a gamble as the quality of food is average at best, or straight up horrible.
Luckily this one is one of the exceptions.
The restaurant has done some interior updates since it’s been opened and it looks very welcoming, with comfy chairs and plenty of seating space on its covered terrace.
Inside there is a large sports area with a pool table, big screens, and bar chairs – the perfect place to watch F1 at the weekends, football or even ice hockey.
The only downside is that the toilets are pretty small, one for each men and women, so if it’s a really busy evening you might end up waiting for a while for your turn.
The Food & Menu
I’ve previously tasted everything from salads, vegan menu, tapas, pizzas, and everything in between. Everything was always delicious!
On my last visit, I tried to taste something new and I wasn’t disappointed.
We had garlic bread for the starter – this was one of the best I had in Fuengirola, on a thin crust pizza-style base with a delicious topping and just the right amount of garlic.
For the main course, my husband had a salmon burger with a rye bun, something I was very jealous about and will probably order next time too. The traditional Finnish rye bread was stuffed with a generous amount of cheese and tasty fresh salmon.
I had a Halloumi burger as one of the vegetarian meal options available, which was also delicious and served in a fresh bun with a side portion of fries.
My son had the salmon pasta which also received compliments.
To finish off, we shared a chocolate fondant cake with vanilla ice cream.
The menu is a refreshing mix of some restaurant classics with some Nordic influences – check the full menu here.
