Whenever i come to benalmadena i always make an effort to visit here, and it is still as good as i remember. Fantastic sea views are backed up by the food , which is delicious. There is plenty of the menu for even the fussy eaters. Will be visiting again in feb !

It is a few steps up off the prom but well worth a visit. Their knowledge of food and how to look after their customers is faultless. We had a couple of celiacs and a couple of vegitarians in our party and they provided everyone with excellent food tailored to meet their needs. Their warm and friendly service and great... More

Ideal location with outdoor seating with sea views. Drinks were good and the tapas portions were tasty. The patatas bravas were the best we have had. Busy place but service was friendly. Prices reasonable.

This is a smashing place to stop on a sunny winters day for a tapa and drink. Very friendly hosts and wonderful sea views from roof terrace. Next door to lemon and lime so you can pop in there while you've at it!

I have been here many times before and always loved it but this last visit I was disappointed. The food was still good but for the price it's no great value but I never minded paying more for the whole package. This time though the service let it down, I know they are busy but so are lots of places... More

We are sorry that we were busy with other things that meant we could not devote as much time to you as you wished. We usually like to spend time with people when we are able but good service is not just about speaking with people. If we remember you correctly, you mentioned that on your previous visit you had...

All our food is prepared fresh for each order and as many of our dishes as possible are made on the premises. We offer a range of tapas comprising typical Spanish and contemporary British dishes. We also offer a range of light bites (sandwiches/wraps, omelettes, baked potatoes) and more substantial snacks such as fish & chips, etc. We also have a menu of the day offer from 8.70€ for 2 courses (3rd course available) and offer a bottle of house wine/cava with this deal for just 5.50€ Our opening hours vary by season which reflects how busy it is in our locality and demand for our services. We highly recommend booking for larger parties and for all tables during peak season evenings (june-sept). We also host private parties and would be very pleased to discuss your requirements.
