THE FAMILY RESTAURANT & BAR The Family is situated in Calle Jose de Orbaneja in Calahonda (near the Dog Park). It is a cosy but welcoming family-run restaurant with an upstairs function room as well. Recently opened but already a popular venue for the locals due to the fresh food served, friendly atmosphere and service and very good portion sizes. We at Key have personally tried this restaurant and there is something for everyone on the menu. From traditional Spanish starters such as Anchovies Cured in Wine Vinegar to Octopus Galician Style or Piquillo Stuffed Peppers for starters to Salmon Gravdlax or Chicken Caesar Salad. There is a variety of rice dishes (minimum 2 persons) including Rice with Rock Lobster. Seafood and Fish dishes are plentiful including Grilled or Boiled Rock Lobster, Mixed Fried Fish “Malaga” style, Tuna or Seabass. You will also find a selection of good quality meat dishes including Green Pepper or Roquefort Entrecote or Sirloin Steak, Iberian Secret Pork, Baked Leg of Suckling Lamb or Chateaubriand. House Specialties include Tuna Tartare, King Prawns in Pernod, Fish & Seafood Operetta (the latter two are tried and tested and highly recommended), Chicken Cordon Bleu with Pepper Sauce and Strogonoff. Vegetarian options are also available. There is also a good, home-made dessert selection and of course good wine to complement your meal. The standard here is excellent and in our opinion The Family Restaurant & Bar is well worth a visit.
