Had a good steak, cooked to my liking but the vegetables were a bit bland. My main gripe was about the state of the bottle of red wine, it had been chilled to a level of an iced drink and when mentioned to the waiter/owner was informed "this is how the Spanish drink their red wine" I think not.
The other slight down side to the meal was the shabby street surroundings.
Will certainly give it another try but will keep away from the red wine.

Having been lucky enough to have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world, I was amazed at the filet steak here. Medium rare was medium rare and it was divine.
Ok, it's in a side street and has little ambience but if you want a stunning filet steak then pay them a visit

We have been to Benaladena 3 times over the last 5 years and always eat at Carnaval. Ernesto and Nataliia friendly approach always make us feel welcome and the food is excellent. If it is pizza, pork or steak you are after you will not be dissapointed in the service or taste. The location is just off of the main road, and this adds to the relaxed atmosphere within Carnaval.

Not a rip off like many costa restaurants!! We had two salads as starters and two steaks here and we were very happy with the service and the price of our wine. Try it for yourself. Service was very friendly and fast.
