“Fresh and various”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This is one of my favourite restaurants in my area, went here with friends, family, my partner and every time it's just amazing. My partner went here with a bachelor party from one of his friends. They were with 14 and could sit in a private area which was a real plus for them. If you prefer to sit outside in the summer, not a problem at all. Plenty of space!
The restaurant is typical Spanish with 'abanicos' and paintings on the wall. The staff is very friendly and there are more than enough of them.
The menu is varied and sometimes it's hard to choose, but I tried a lot. I would recommend the fish soup, white tuna fish salad and, if you love meat, try the chateau briand. The portions are quite big, so make sure you're hungry and enjoy!

“Best food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This restaurant came highly recommended by many friends who know the area and it most certainly lived up to my high expectations. The food is very reasonably priced for the quality and portions are huge so go hungry. They have a very varied menu and we all had something different, one tastier than the other. We sat outside which made the whole experience even more enjoyable and authentic. This will be an evening i will remember fondly and look forward to again in the future.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Having spent a week in Estepona sampling various restaurants I was extremely impressed with Los Abanicos and would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area
Clearly a very popular restaurant making the other offerings in benahavis look pretty sad with numerous empty tables whilst this place is packed night after night
The shoulder of lamb is a must
falling off the bone or the oxtail equally delicious
Great wine list and prompt efficient service will definitely return
