A typical Brit restaurant and bar with a great view. Solid Britiish style food. Had an evening meal which was tasty enough. Service was painfully slow sadly. Almost an hour for the meal to arrive. Reasonably priced. Friendly staff.

Never been to this particular restaurant before but was rated the best breakfast in Benalmadena, so thought we'd give it a go. The service was ok but the food wasn't great. The breakfast was very greasy and got to say had better in the years...More

This little gem of a place is the perfect place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The staff espcially Michelle and Jamie are really great at making you feel at home and welcome. My son ate them out of house and home. A must to visit...More
