The terrace has 4 large round Bistro tables serving up to 16 people. Serving good quality food at reasonable prices we are also popular for our cocktails and sangria. Estrella Damm is served in branded glasses straight from the freezer. Exceptional Spanish house wines from Rioja is served including an incredible Crianza. No loud music or TV. Ideal for friends to meet or small groups to reserve for private parties such as birthdays, hen parties, divorce parties, anniversaries, cocktail parties etc. The Menu is modern and always prepared fresh.

“Never Fail to amaze.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We have visited Amigos each time we have been to Benidorm over the last 5 years and each time we have recieved a warm welcomed.The service from Dino and Nas is second to none as nothing is to much trouble. After a nice day at the beach what better way to relax than an ice cold beer and some excellent food and a nice relaxing atmosphere.We look forward to our next trip to Benidorm and visiting Amigos.Well done boys.PS Nice meeting PC Plod (Bill) and
Pam-ma-larrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

It's not often that towards the end of October people can write the words - after a nice day at the beach - sums up Benidorm really. It's early November now and it's still in the 70s.

Thank you for your kind review and for your continued support. It really is appreciated. Without repeat business from people like yourselves it can be very difficult for all bars and restaurants to survive wherever they are.

Thank you for also mentioning the quality of service the guys give. I think most people know and appreciate the effort these guys put in.

Look forward to seeing you next time.

BTW since your visit, Nas and Annie have had a stunning baby girl, her name is Vivien and Nas' smile looks like he's working around with a dinner plate in his mouth :)

Kind regards

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

Amigos is without doubt the best restaurant in Benidorm! Fabulous food, great atmosphere and so intimate yet friendly! We ate here 3 times over 5 days last week and were made to feel so special. Dino and Nas you should be proud of yourselves for your achievement! We will be back! See you next year really can't wait xx

Thank you for taking the time to review Amigos, it's very much appreciated and I'm please you mentioned the intimacy which is hard to achieve with a larger venue. You see, bigger is not always best :)

See you next year

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This was our second visit to Amigo's and we weren't disappointed. We were made to feel very welcome. After enjoying our starters and main meal we ordered coffees and it was a very nice touch when we were told that they were 'on the house'. If we visit @Bnidorm again we would definitely visit Amigo's again.

Christine, thank you for taking time to write a kind review about the Bar, very much appreciated. Coffee on the house? I'll have to have a word :)

The success of any hospitality business is dependant on repeat business and to get that, you must treat customers properly and with respect.

Our motto has always been to try and give people more than they expect, which can be quite difficult, given that the reviews on TA expectations are already set pretty high. It's a credit to the family that they can still produce the standards above and beyond.

Thanks again and hopefully we'll see you again next year.

Kind regards
