Looking for a good Italian restaurant in Fuengirola?
There are quite a few to choose from and before you head over to this one, please read this review.
After my third visit to Ke-Eat Restaurant, I’ve decided to write a short review about it.
I usually only feature restaurants here that I’m very impressed about and would highly recommend to anyone for visit. In this case, I had to make an exception.
The restaurant is located close to the coastline, at C. Martínez Catena 3, in between apartment blocks, so there isn’t much of a view to speak of.
They made the most out of the location by creating an outdoor enclosed area and decorating the place beautifully.
A lot of attention to detail has gone into the presentation of the restaurant, including a selection of chairs (actually very comfortable to sit on and stylish!) and beautiful plates and blue-tinted glasses.
The outdoor space is a natural extension of the restaurant and it feels very upscale. It was one of the first things that caught my attention because the majority of restaurants in Fuengirola don’t make such a big effort in the design and styling of the space.
The service on each occasion was very professional, friendly and happy to help. They speak very good English and we never had to wait too long for food or service.

The two best things I ate here were the fresh mozzarella (pictured below) and Foccacia bread with garlic. Considering I’ve had 3 different dining experiences here, that tells you a lot.
The restaurant is supposed to be known for their fire oven-baked pizzas, and that’s what most people order when they come for here a meal.
I had tasted the pizza only once – it was a margarita pizza for my son, and it was completely soggy, almost felt like undercooked or soaked in liquid.
On other occasions, I had different pasta dishes.
They were nicely presented, but unfortunately without any flavour at all, and I had to add salt to each meal. I’ve never been to an Italian restaurant that would manage to make pasta taste bland, but this was certainly the case.
Not just that, but the dishes were very overpriced considering what you got for your money.
It wasn’t just me, my husband was also disappointed in his meals too. I’ve included some food pictures with references below.
I wouldn’t be probably so disappointed with this place if the prices were corresponding with the quality of food you get, but that’s not the case here.
I find the restaurant to be very expensive considering the location and the food quality. I’m happy to pay a lot for good food when you know the money has been spent on good quality ingredients and execution.
This is just plain simple overpriced low-quality food, in what is not even a prime location in the city.
I gave Ke-Eat Restaurant 3 chances and tasted different meals, and can confidently say I won’t be returning here in the future.
Unfortunately, the lovely staff and beautiful setting don’t make up for the very poor food quality & execution of the dishes.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT — Southern Spain has a well-established and modern network of trains and buses. To get the cheapest bus or train tickets, take a look at Omio to find the timetables and prices.

WHERE SHOULD I BOOK MY ACCOMMODATION?
BOOKING.COM — I have been using booking.com for all my trips in Spain and abroad, and have never had any negative experiences. Their reviews are very accurate and you get the best deals even on apartments, not just hotels.
