The Tartan Shamrock is my favourite place in Benidorm, because if you're Scottish it really is a home from home. Helen's totally authentic Scottish breakfast is excellent and you'd be hard pushed to find as good alot of places back home. All the food and service is excellent, but it's Helen herself that makes the place so special, always welcoming... More

12 of us (6 couples) were in Benidorm for my husbands 40th birthday. My friend Helen made a big pot of chicken curry, chips & rice for everyone and had banners & balloons up in the bar. Helen is such a lovely person and so friendly to all her customers, especially her returning ones.

The best place in the are to go for a nice glass or two of wine sitting in the sun. Plenty of Scottish banter . The breakfast is to die for and I would recommend a Tattie scone sandwich with tomatoe sauce as a snack. See you next time Helen Cheers.
