Great fun and large g&t

We ate twice at the Boma and really enjoyed our evenings here. Friendly staff make you welcome and pour large cold gin and tonics! Good food I liked the curry. Clean toilets which made a welcome change. Looking forward to going there again next year.

we have been to the Boma on many occasions and the problem they have is the variation of the food quality. Sometimes the chicken is wonderful and sometimes it is as tough as old boots, we have told some friends about the Boma and the too have be pleased sometimes and very disappointed on others. It is a shame because... More

The Menu is small, but invitingly so and it doesn't make choosing any easier, everything sounds so... More

this was a surprise! Really tasteful food, the steaks are to die for and so is their stew. Waiters are very relaxed and if you like football you can go inside to watch it. Outside you have a nice view.

This place is quite basic, but very handy for where we were staying at the Alhaurin Golf complex - only five minutes walk or so. It's a sort of mix between a bar and restaurant, and has a good outdoor seating terrace for the warm weather. The food is excellent - both times we visited I had the warm mackerel... More

Visited The Boma a few times during our stay in Coin and we were not disappointed. The setting is in a lovely tranquil area outside of Coin. We were so impressed with our first meal that we decided to go back for Sunday Lunch, It was divine. Do not miss out on this experience. The restaurant was booked out to... More

Well worth a visit during the day or evening. Great menu and well worth waiting. Big portions served clean and tidy. Seating outside with a lovely view. Friendly staff giving excellent service. All in all a great place to eat and socialise.

I like this unpretentious place. Party of four with choices of chicken Veronique, a Malay curry, a South African lamb stew and a fish dish. All well cooked and presented, generous portions. Very good value food and wine. I am not usually bothered about desert but we shared a honeycomb ice cream which was fantastic!

Our first visit was a great success. Seated outside on a hot evening, the shade and breeze on the terrace was lovely, not to mention the view. Nice bottle of Californian Pinot Grigio Blush and then we ordered our meals. Our friends had the Pint of Prawns with dips and loved them, I couldn't be bothered with all the fiddly... More

We've been here several times over the past few years. Yet again, the food was excellent, chicken curry, lamb stew and fresh fish were all amazing. Then, the lemon meringue pie and the honeycomb ice-cream were to die for. Portions were large and overall meal was excellent, and very reasonably priced. Fabulous friendly service, thanks Joe, see you again soon.
