Always a warm welcome from Swiss owner Karen. Wonderful Roesti dishes. Great selection of breads. Lovely atmosphere. Pricey but good.

Intrigued by the #1 Trip Advisor rating we were keen to try Benimars. I can now see why, but reservation is essential. Food and service is excellent. My veal, wife's steak, children's pasta and rosti were excellent (and a welcome break from tapas). Unfortunately the overall experience was let down by two things; desert and smokers. My Apple Strudel expectations... More

Always a joy to eat here. You get what you ask for freshly cooked exactly as you ask. A medium cooked steak is a medium cooked steak. Service is always attentive and lovely garden setting opposite the beach. Recommend the fillet steak, rosti and if you can eat it the chateaubriand ! Well worth the price as it is so... More

This restaurant has so much going for it. Small intimate atmosphere, great location with sea view under a shady olive tree. Charming hostess in Karin and her team and of course great food. Swiss inspired but we always have the chateaubriand steak as it is so good. The Rosti are great and the portion size overall very generous. For the... More

Have eaten in Benimar on many, many occasions. This visit was disappointing for both my wife and me. My wife ordered monkfish in saffron sauce ( a new item on the menu since our last visit) The portion size was huge but the sauce seemed a little thin. When my wife cut into the fish, it was obviously very under... More

enjoyed another good meal at this friendly family restaurant that we have visited with friends every time in Alcossebre, and never been disappointed - they specialise in meat and the starters are always for two to share

We have enjoyed holidays for many years in Alcossebre but had never been to Benimars. We made up for this though during June when we dined twice at this excellent restaurant. Now I appreciate what all the other reviewers were enjoying. Its a great restaurant but very intimate, friendly and excellent but unobtrusive service. They really do want you to... More

We went to Benimars twice during our 1 week stay in Alcossebre; the first time we tried it was full so we went back the next day and we were glad that we did. There was 10 of us (5 children). The restaurant was always full so a nice atmosphere at a quiet time of the year. The food was... More

Based on other reviews, we booked a table for dinner. I mentioned that we would have a dog with us - that was no problem. When we arrived, not only was there a bowl of water for the dog, there was also a small glass bowl of dog biscuits on the table. As we regard our dog as part of... More
