“Best Irish bar in Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

just back from a visit to Decs and it was a real treat. Great menu chioce, very reasonable prices, and quick service with a beautifull smile. Huge sunny terrace with beautiful trees that give shade and privacy to customers. And at night the lovely terrace lighting creates a magical effect. Inside the bar is comfortable and spotlessly clean, toilets are especially good and well maintained. At Dec's you are always assured of a huge genuine Donegal welcome. Make it a must place to visit, we did and would will to go back again. Overall the place has a great atmosphere.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

Had read reviews on trip adviser so decided to pay a visit on St Patricks Day. The Pub is small and we found it difficult to get seats. Only one Gents and one Ladies toilets. In the short time we were there we witnessed a phone been snatched from a table. Would not return and not recommend this pub.

“definitely one of the best bars in Benalmadena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2012

Holidayed with my girlfriend during Oct '11 and stayed across the road in the Jupiter apartments. Ended up eating in Dec's every other day. The breakfast was great value for money, Dec himself was hilarious and actually made the first morning of our holiday very enjoyable even though we had a spell of rain. The service was friendly and faultless throughout, premises clean and atmosphere relaxing. I found my favourite dish in Benalmadena at this pub, smokey chicken, it was so delicious my girlfriend was kissing Bar-B-Q breath for days ha ha. The cocktails were big, fresh and awesome, way too many to get through we but did our best! Will definitely visit again next time we're back. Wouldn't call it a restaurant, more pub grub menu.

“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2011

I agree with other reviews,, the breakfasts are not the best, eggs very greasy,, Sunday lunch is ok, however the actual daytime menu food is excellent. Great value, great quality and hot food.
Staff very friendly. Drinks very reasonably priced. Will certainly go back.
