The owners will make you feel at home wherever you're from! And let it be known that they have the best sangria in Andalusia! (Bring some frozen ones to the beach!)

We have been here a good few times and never been disappointed. The food and service consistently good. Better to book as it's generally busy and they aim to please .

I have been coming here for many years and the tapas never disappoint. Whilst not traditional "Spanish", they are small, tasty and enjoyable dishes and are perfect for lunch. This will continue to be a "regular" when we're over in Benalmadena.

This is a remarkably understated restaurant that you might pass by without a thought. However, we stumbled on it accidentally. To cut a long story short we returned for an excellent lunch on two occasions. We are pretty fussy about what we eat, but we...More

Hi, sorry to say but we do not run quizzes since about 3 years. These used to be on Mondays. Our clients have indicated that we rather should be open as a restaurant on Mondays, an advice we took over. However, on Fridays... More

A nice and cosy family run restaurant with a large base of returning customers from all over Europe. Great for a night out. First Friday of the month we have our theme nights which often means a special menu and live music. Check our Newz on the website. We have a varied menu with something for everyone (for special requests: please contact us one day in advance). We try to cook with fresh ingredients as much as possible. We are proud to have almost all 'excellent' scores from our customers, rare for the 600+ restaurants in Benalmadena. The restaurant is in a central location - not far from the Arroyo de la Miel train station - and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. We love to see you soon, knowing that you will come back. Bookings by phone, sms or WhatsApp are necessary.
