Before the Civil War, the grandfather of the owner of the Calabré restaurant, Antonio Rodrigo Merino, ran a grocery shop in Almuñécar. Like many, he had to leave for a safe destination, and on his return the shop that had been his livelihood had disappeared.
Here he began his relationship with an incipient hotel and catering trade, opening several temporary taverns over a period of several years, in various locations
for several years, in different locations; work that he combined with goldsmith work in order to make ends meet.

This is how we arrive at the end of the 1940s, when this entrepreneur bought a “fishermen’s hut” on the beach of San Cristóbal and began to sell his first wines during the summer season.
This was the seed of the current Calabré Restaurant, authentic and genuine dean of the Chiringuitos and restaurants of Almuñécar. The oldest of these establishments on the Costa Tropical.
Since then, three generations of Rodrigo’s have passed through the sands of San Cristóbal; fathers, brothers and cousins working with enthusiasm within these walls that have seen so many good times over more than 60 years.
Fresh fish, seafood, rice dishes, grilled and fried fish and seafood continue to come out of his kitchen with the same freshness as always.
In addition to these products, there are now some variants such as the authentic red tuna from Almadraba, matured meats, fresh salads and various homemade desserts.
And to give even more flavour to this offer, the cooking in an authentic charcoal oven takes centre stage, replacing the traditional grills.
To top it all off, all this takes place in an idyllic location facing the sea and sheltered by our Peñón del Santo, the emblem of the town of Almuñécar; be sure to enjoy our sunsets and our live music on summer evenings.
