“Lazy Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Some good friends from the UK drove us up to Benahavis and this restaurant looked as good a place to eat as any. It was a sunny, breezy March day but we choose to sit outside in the sun. Only one other couple were that brave but it was well worth while.

Had a multiplicity of starters which we shared as tapas with house red and some more garlic bread. At 60 euro for the four of us it was a really good lunch.

We were a bit surprised however that another couple turned up for just a drink and were told that they could not stay for more than an hour - despite so many empty tables. No sense of "manana" for them!

Quality of the food was excellent and will definately give it another go when I am next in the region.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We hadn't realised this restaurant had changed hands, as the last time we ate there the food was good. My husband ordered chicken curry, which has to be the worst he has ever eaten. The chicken was like tasteless rubber, curry sauce from a packet rice and chips (which were the best bit). I had the crab salad and thank goodness only the tapas size, as it was crab sticks sliced into mayonnaise. Maybe they weren't the best choices but with all the excellent restaurants in Benahavis it will have to improve to survive.

“First Visit of Many!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We live in Mijas Pueblo and amazingly this was our first visit to Benahavis. We tried one of the other better rated restaurants on the first night and were a little disappointed. This restaurant did a much better fillet steak and the owner of this this lovely situated family run restaurant, made us feel very welcome.
Without doubt we will recommend and formsure will return! Thanks.

“The Best Lamb in Benahavis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Located in the main square of Benahavis this family run restaurant never fails to please. An excellent variety of main courses it is very difficult to choose anything other than the lamb shoulder which is excellent in all respects. A large outdoor area for the summer and plenty of room indoor for the cooler winter evenings. Well worth a visit.

“Favourite”

We've had a holiday house in the village for 30 years and Eugenio's hasn't let us down yet! The best pil pil, meats and fish we've had across the costa.
