A little gem

Excellent menu with lots of choice. Staff very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Our first meal in Benahavis was at lunch time, it was so good we decide to return later that week for dinner, we were not disappointed!

The setting at the plaza is nice, but what came was more than average. We were not too impressed, as it was fairly basic fair and certainly expensive for what you get. We would not return

Loved this place. Great service. Good wines. Amazing slow roasted lamb for two. Relaxed, sitting outside, people-watching. Crema catalanya to finish. Beautiful.

As is the case with most traditional Spanish menus what you read is what you'll get on your plate. However at La Torre the dishes also receive an added subtlety and flair, not to mention an unexpected amuse bouche and palate cleanser along the way. On this cold night the cosy and charming interior and waiters attentive (and generous) service... More
