This is one of the better restaurants in Benahavis. Basically you get what you pay for. No cheap fast food here but decent Catalan cuisine. Nice outside terrace on the main square in Benahavis, good service. They have a basic kids menu so that's ok as well. Lots of tables say "reservado " but if you ask politely, they'll try... More

I never ever thought i would ever complain about a restaurant on a site like this but i feel that i have to share how terrible this restaurant was! We sat down and ordered some drinks, the waiter came with the wine and poured one glass out for one of us and then just put the bottle down without asking... More

We had lunch here one hot afternoon and chose this place as we wanted to sit outside in the shade. As it was lunch time we opted for the tuna salad as we only wanted a light meal. It was the most memorable meal of our holiday! We too were presented with complimentary hot rolls and melon soup which was... More

Benhavis is a most picturesque village several kilometres inland from Marbella and over the years many really good reliable restaurants have emerged to create quite a foodie paradise!! We chose La Torre for no other reason than it looked a good venue for lunch and given the glorious weather, we could enjoy Al fresco eating in the much needed shade... More

Had one of my best steaks here. However went with two fairly well behaved kids and got the impression that they wanted shot of us. Food superb though and in a pretty square with obligatory accordion player. Reasonable prices for the quality of the food, great people watching - I wish I'd come here without the children. Highly recommend for... More

Benahavis is a remarkable place - a relatively small village with more than 20 different restaurants/cafes including one Michelin Listed! La Torre is located at the eastern end of the lower main street. It looks fairly conventional and has a nice outdoor dining area in an adjacent small square. The staff were very friendly and attentive; the food and wine... More

Have tried several restuaurants in Benahavis over the years, but for some reason not La Torre. Turned out to be a real treat among the tourist traps, family run (the wife is the chef), some interesting items on the menu, and a good attempt at real Spanish food, which we love. Lovely setting in the main square, friendly service (despite... More
