“Reply to Happyscotsabroad from Sean the Prawn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Don't agree with Happyscotsabroad!!
All dining & drinking experiences in Dec's have been excellent, from the super varied menu, drinks and most of all the excellent friendly & chatty service.
I can fully understand ,from a health & safety point of view, why a buggy may need to be put in a secure location. I have observed buggies being obstacles to staff & customers , pushed around the terrace by the child that should be in the buggy.
Des's for me & my family every time.

“NOT child friendly!arrogant staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Having visited benalmadena the past 5 years in a row and a family who regularly dines out at puerto marina was delighted to see this tasteful looking Irish bar with a nice ambience, a welcome new addition or so we thought.....stopped in for after dinner drinks and was made to feel like I had three heads because I dared bring a buggy!(which the young waiter from cork hastily hid away the moment we sat down!)Have never felt so uncomfortable, a very unwarm Irish welcome... WOULD NOT RETURN!

“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Just come back from the Minerva in Benalmadena, found this great bar across the road called Dec's, its an Irish bar/restaurant, lovely atmosphere, great food and even better staff. We had our brunch there most days and usually had a nightcap on the way home. All the staff were efficient and friendly in particular Rebecca a lovely irish girl who was so plesant and helpfull with the most amazing smile, nothing was too much trouble she told us all about the local market and things to do and see in the area she recommended their sister bar in the marina,also called Decs, they serve great cocktails and Niall the barman was so welcoming, that kind of staff makes all the difference, so thanks for making a good holiday even better.
