Nice little restaurant. We sat inside in the warm and had the three dishes menu (18€). Gambas pil pil (spicy prawns) they were nice and big, then a white fish with champagne sauce (well cooked) and finally we had a plate of the homemade desserts of the day. All was really tasteful and nice. The service was good and the... More

nice little restaurant with good food. The owner was happy to make vegetarian specials for one of our party even though they are not on the menu. Humus to die for. Will return. Mike

Walked past and thought how lovely it looked so stopped off. The staff couldn't have been more helpful from the minute we sat down. We fancied paella and it wasn't on the menu but said they would cook it for us. The brought out a lovey dip and some bread whilst we waited for our starter of pil pil prawns... More

4 off us stopped off as the tables outside looked pretty. The menu was 18e. We selected the mussels & Soup the mussels were very small, soup was ok. We had the lamb stew for main course. There was very little lamb and next to no other vegetables. It is not stew as we know it very dry. Desert consisted... More

We went here with fairly large groups In July and August. The food and service were excellent. We visit here often because it's just off the main square and offers good value for money.

This was the most expensive meal we have had in Benahavis and it was a long way from the best and we felt ripped off. We paid €123 for 4 of us - 3 had the €18 set meal which is used to lure you in. However, they don't mention the cover charge of €6 per person, the cost of... More

I was there with friends thought it's good restaurant but we get bad service and terrible food. I don't advice any one to visit this restaurant.

Having been a regular visitor to the area, and Benahavis in particular, for many years, I always passed this little restaurant and thought it looked nice, and that we should give it a try sometime. How wrong could I be. The service was brusque and dismissive. We ordered the set menu of the day, assuming this would be fresh and... More

The welcome was fantastic, very hospitable, atmosphere and location were lovely. All 3 courses on the set menu were however, disappointing. The set menu (3 courses for €18) had a good selection but we found the dishes were bulked out with mushrooms(and other items) with very little meat or fish as the main attraction. All in all we were only... More
