We have been holidaying in the village of Benahavis for the last 12 years or so and although there are many wonderful restaurants in the village, La Sarten is one of our favourites. Why? Well it is very Spanish, excellent friendly service and great food. There is also a large outside balcony which means that there is plenty of room between the tables. The chicken kebab is excellent (massive chunks of chicken, onion, peppers etc cooked on the grill) as is the Pork fillet on the house specials menu and it is one of the few places in the village that you can get a decent paella. The food is served with really well cooked veg (not over cooked) and is served with a proper baked potato which makes a great change from chips.
The restaurant entrance is on the main Benahavis street and looks fairly uninviting from the outside (as all the tables on view are empty!), but climb the steps to the outside balcony and you get wonderful views over the hills and down into the village streets. We always go at least two or three times a year and are never disappointed.
Very much recommended. It is also one of the few restaurants that many of the Spanish dine at - always a good sign!
ps They also have THE BEST toilets in any of the restaurants in the village!
