El Torrente is famous for its fine Spanish dining including several very special local dishes and fresh fish. The main restaurant is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Deck at The Clubhouse
Overlooking Powder Creek and its Cascade, The Deck has a stunning setting to enjoy early morning coffee, evening cocktails and delicious lunches.
The Deck Menu has a wide choice of light lunch time food available through daylight hours, including tasty soups, tapas, salads, burgers, pasta, wraps and filled ciabatta.
The Crocodile Club Restaurant & Rosewood Bar
Set on a high point overlooking Desert Springs with views to the sea and the surrounding mountains, the Crocodile Club restaurant is housed in an enormous African style thatched long house.
The 'Croc' features an eclectic menu of Mediterranean, Pacific Rim and Thai dishes, along with fresh fish and grills, Pastas and Pizzas and Desert Hamburgers; lots for kids and something special for the adults. Tables are available in the restaurant around the open fire or on the terraces or outside in the semi-secluded terraced garden. The restaurant is open for lunch and/or dinner according to the season.
The bar is made of huge trunks of old dried rosewood from the Namibian desert and features a circular sitting out area; an open sided, canvas windowed 'Rondavel' looking out, African style, over the local wildlife at the water holes and in amongst the rocks and sand bunkers, to the surrounding plains and the sea.
This is the number one meeting place for early, and indeed not so early, evening drinks on the resort and features a delicious, but dangerous, selection of 'Croctails'.
El Chiringuito Pool Bar
Serving light lunches and a range of superb healthy fruit punches of the innocent and more grown up variety, the pool bar is a great place to lounge and shoot the breeze.
The tiny shop offers casual beachwear, sandals, kikoi wraps from Kenya, sunglasses, sunscreen and other requisites for long sunny days.
Private Dining at The Cave Bar
Known as La Cueva del Almanzora, this original but refurbished cave has a really cool bar and offers an extraordinary private meeting room and exclusive and atmospheric private dining facilities in its underground gallery.
