Lovely restaurant on the square in the pretty village of benalmadena pueblo surrounded by orange trees and looking onto the fountain. Great food drink and service. Lovely tapas and deal on tapas and a drink, shame that out of season its not open in the evening. Pigs cheeks were lovely - recommended

Great value and great food. Friendly service, what's not to like. Parking in village currently difficult but that does not detract from La Niña

We visited Benalmadena Peublo over Christmas 2016. We spent many happy hours sitting outside at this fabulous restaurant in the Plaza Espana. The food, drink and staff made for a memorable atmosphere and experience. Definitely would recommend.

Restaurante La nina is situated in The Pueblo and has many dishes on the menu. Try the tapas menu or the ribs. Quite possibly one of the best meals I've had in a long time.

You can have different tapas with a drink for very good prices. Everything we've tried was delicious but our favorite were the fried calamaris. Never had those as superb as in this place!! Incomparable!

Have been here several times now. Owned by same person/group that owns Fuentes, Muros, Azafran, etc. On a good day, sit outside in the sun. Their salmon is very good with champagne mushroom sauce.

We arrived in the square in Benalmadena Pueblo and decided to have a drink to quench our thirst. The other restaurants in the area were buzzing with people and the tiny restaurant in the corner was quiet. We picked our seat in the area outside overlooking the fountain and ordered.

Very nice food provided at la nina: excellent squid main course & top quality starters. Simple decor, more cafe than restaurant, but honest. It is part of a chain of four restaurants in Benalmádena pueblo, but each has its own theme and foods on offer. Recommended!
