Wouldn't have known about this if we hadn't been recommended it due to its location a bit on the backstreets, though still within easy walking distance from main fountain square. Meal was top quality, service & surroundings also cozy & friendly. Would definitely recommend & will return when we go back.

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 wouldn't hesitate to eat here again. Mike really cares about food and it shows. Fiona... More

We arrived at the restaurant which had been recommended by a family member, the owners were really welcoming, my family all had steak (and were all asked how they liked it cooked) I don't like steak and was offered lots of different choices, It was a beautiful meal and sweets were to die for. all I can say is they...

We have been many times to Otelli and have always been made very welcome by Mike & Fiona, such an hardworking team who serve up delicious meals time after time. The Steak nights are brilliant !!, Also if you are a fish lover the Dover sole is a real treat. Not forgetting the Best Steak Pie in Town

Description
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.
