“Bull Bar, Benalmadena Pueblo Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

If you want a great atmosphere, a really nice mix of Spanish and English (plus who know how many other nationalities!) then head down here. It really is a great little bar with pool table, darts team (they play in the Spanish league) and just a good crowd. Obviously, you get the odd plonker, but Phil and Pam soon sort them out. Very child friendly as well, with high chairs, toys.etc. Went down on Friday (we've got another weeks holiday yet) and they are showing the Football on Sunday - Spain V Italy - and doing a special on beers with tapas free. We're really looking forward to it now as we can share the evening with Spanish and expats and really get the atmosphere of the village and feel part of the locals.

“Best breakfast in Benalmadena.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I have recently discovered this lovely bar in Benalmadena Pueblo. It is located next to the bull ring. Pam and Phil are so welcoming and friendly and always have time for a chat with the customers. The food is lovely and you will not leave here hungry.

“A must visit if in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

Despite the Bull Ring being closed, the Bull Bar flourishes under the owners Pam and Phil and the chef Dave, who welcome everyone as if they are old friends. Inside, the bar has a lot of Spanish character with bull-fighting memorabilia but also boasts a pool table and a dart board (do NOT play Phil for money cos hes a bit good!!!). The food, both the tapas and the 'normal' stuff, is top quality and i especially recommend their fish and chips !! Wednesday night is quiz night and a very popular and entertaining night out and Fridays feature a meat draw.

“the bull bars tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

we went to the bull bar a few times while we stayed with our daughter who lives in Benalmadena and each time was greeted like old friends by Phil and Pam but the tapas were courtesy of Dave the chef who perfected the tapas to a perfect dish and made them his own, the quiz night on weds were absolute fun and not to be missed, a lovely location next to the bullring and off the main road into the pueblo of benalmadena and right opposite the bus stop, perfect.
