“The ultimate in friendliness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

The Vine was recommended to us by a resident of Benalmadena and it is not hard to see why it is so popular with locals and tourists alike. The first thing that hits you is the friendly greeting from Terry and Jan (not forgetting son Scott). They really are a lovely family and always have time for a chat or a bit of banter. Terry is also a wealth of information on all things local.
The bar is perfect if, like us, you have youngsters as there is a pool table in the bar as well as a large kids park next to the outside seating area. If you're lucky the kids might get a job in the bar and if you're unlucky(like our daughter) you could end up getting sacked.......all great fun.
The food was excellent with a large choice of pub grub with hearty portions for those with a big appetite.
Sky Sports is a feature of the bar and I know that Terry prides himself on showing every available Premier League game.
If you want to go to a bar and feel valued then it must be The Vine. We are already planning to return to Benalmadena next year and The Vine will be our main bar of choice.
Thank you to Terry, Jan and Scott for making us so welcome.

“The Vine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We have eaten in lots of places as now living in between the Uk and Benalmadena. Although The Vine menu isnt extensive it is well thought out and seems to cater for most needs. The food is extremeley well presented very hot (which is a rare find) and very large portions, and the service and staff on our visit were second to none. We would highly recommend The Vine We will defintely be returning
