There were 4 adults and 2 children , the children ( who were under 10) got to eat free. The food was brilliant, the service and the team, we loved it so much we are back on Saturday and then Wednesday with different friends. An absolute gem of a place.

We went here for a meal following trip advisor reviews. We went for set menu and kids ate free as under 10. Fabulous friendly service. Food was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

The restaurant appears to have a nucleus of elderly loyal customers who opt for the set menu and although we did not have this option everyone else seemed perfectly happy with their food. Our meal consisted of 1prawn starter (which was very disappointing) and 1 melon and parma ham. Our main was Sirloin steak which was inedible due to the... More

Great appetizers to start which consisted of pate and toast and olives. Nice little touch. Every meal we had was really good. I particularly liked the pork with tomatoes and red... More

We go to Benalmadena Costa every year. Although we like to try the local Spanish cuisine, this British/Irish restaurant is a gem and worth a visit. Good food, service and value for money,
