Attentive service from all waiting staff, glasses topped up regularly and food to order was beautiful. To give an example - filet steak (rare), seafood paella and a lasagne all tasty and cooked to perfection. Bread and olives were complimentary and a nice touch. Highly recommended by three self proclaimed foodies.

We are from Germany and came across this restaurant as most people walking along the promenade and being invited by an outside waiter.
We had 4 out of 9 dinners at La Gran Ola and the experience was very positive all times.
The food is very good and very nice and attentive staff.
Try the Seafood Paella and the fish in the BBQ.
Thank you for a beautiful experience.
Markus and family.
Will recommend to anyone.

We visited La Gran Ola for lunch and had a delightful experience. We had the grilled sardines, which were cooked to perfection ,along with mussells and salad and had hoped to return in the evening for dinner but as we were spoilt for choice on the part of the promenade where this restaurant is situated on, we did not manage back. Our special thanks to Ben for making us so welcome and so sorry we could not take you up on your kind offer of a free bottle of vino. Maybe next time. I would recommend this restaurant and is perfectly situated right on the edge of the beach.

I have just returned from a long weekend in Benalmadena where i spent a lovely few days with my family. Being a prolific traveller i have eaten in many amazing places but i have to say the food at this restaurant was AMAZING! My fist night i was recommended a whole fresh Seabass that was salted and BBQ's (one of the best meals of my life) i also sampled here a delicious paella (best i ever tasted) and a leg of spit roasted lamb that will never be forgotten! The guys tha work there were sooo friendly and accomodaing! After reading the other 2 reviews i wonder if we are even talking about the same restauant Please make sure you try this place out and if you do be sure to have the seabass (my mouth is watering just remembering it)! ;)
