Bad Ass Bistro, set in a charming square in Fuengirola’s heart, offers a dining experience unlike any other. Owned by Paul Crumpler and Debbie Maclean, it opened in April 2021, and has rapidly gained a great following from locals and tourists alike, from all age groups and every corner of the globe.

Paul, with over 40 years on the coast, was head chef at El Paraiso Golf Club in Estepona for 8 years. Debbie, with 15 years on the coast, brings a background in customer service and tourism both here in Spain and abroad.

The bistro’s unique location, a 2-minute walk from the beach or church square, creates a welcoming atmosphere away from the city’s hustle. The square is a great, safe place for the little ones to enjoy, and provides parents with a well deserved rest! The warm reception and friendly service, with staff fluent in up to 5 languages, add a personal touch.

The food concept focuses on Spanish-style “racciones,” elevated with side orders, salads, and vegetarian options, creating a unique dining experience. The menu spans a seafood section with dishes like Tempura king prawns and Teriyaki Tuna steak. In the Meat section, Bad Ass Ribs and Argentinian Entraña steak shine. Salad and sides sections offer delights like goat cheese and beetroot salad or wild mushroom risotto. Not forgetting the little ones, the menu caters to children as well.

Ingredients are sourced daily by Paul for freshness and quality at reasonable prices. Specials with seasonal produce are constantly on offer..
