Description: All our food is prepared fresh for each order and as many of our dishes as possible are made on the premises. We offer a range of tapas comprising typical Spanish and contemporary British dishes. We also offer a range of light bites (sandwiches/wraps, omelettes, baked potatoes) and more substantial snacks such as fish & chips, etc. We also have a menu of the day offer from 8.70€ for 2 courses (3rd course available) and offer a bottle of house wine/cava with this deal for just 5.50€ Our opening hours vary by season which reflects how busy it is in our locality and demand for our services. We highly recommend booking for larger parties and for all tables during peak season evenings (june-sept). We also host private parties and would be very pleased to discuss your requirements.

“Outstanding ..again!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

We visited this restaurant daily on our last visit to Benalmadena and it was our first stop again on this trip. The food was just as fantastic as the last time. The quality of ingredients used is second to none. Each dish was absolutely delicious and the food is extremely good value. Simon is genuinely a wonderful host who shows wonderful hospitality to each and every customer. The view is really spectacular and it is a wonderful place to catch the last few rays as the winter sun goes down. Can't wait to return!

“Amazing TAPAS”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

This is my second review of this restaurant. Just returned from Benalmadena after 6 day holiday. We visited this restaurant 4 times in 6 days for lunch. The TAPAS are excellent and very reasonably priced. The Prawns Pil Pil are fantastic! The view from the restaurant is stunning and they do a fab champagne sangria. If we return to Benalmadena again this will be our first port of call.

“We`ve been again - but now that we`re going....it`s time to review with another Poem!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We were lying on the beach enjoying the Benalmadena sun
But being asked to buy watches every 10 minutes wasn`t much fun….
Pulling on my tee shirt, I knocked the sand off my feet
It was 13.00hrs………and time for us to eat!
Being fussy and selective, our favourite retreat has to remain….
The Lounge at Pinnocios, run by Simon and Elaine!
Simon is front of house…..eloquent and very able
He spots us arrive and plonks a lager on the table
This is the highlight of my day - and I wear a fertive grin….
As he proceeds to pour Karen a welcoming large Gin!
Elaine waves from the kitchen, where she`s busy with orders galore
The friendliness of this couple is hard for anyone to ignore
As we absorb the stunning views, shaded from the sun
The debate about which tapas to order immediately begun
Meatballs are a constant – in their rich and decadent sauce
Beer battered cod will also make another appearance of course!
Black pudding with its mustard sauce is one of my favourite sights
But Karen insists that we have to choose the equally charming Brie bites!
Giving in to my persistent wife`s demands wasn`t easy, for heaven`s sakes…..
But I had the last laugh by ordering the home made Thai fish-cakes!!
Waiting for their arrival, we always become excited…..
As Simon drones on about the mighty……..Leeds United??!
Soon the tapas arrive – piping hot, and tasty as ever…..
Another two lagers arrive to keep me cool in this weather !
And so another fabulous lunchtime draws to a close
“Thanks and Bye for Now” to our friends at Pinnocios!
