It says a lot from us to return to a restaurant twice in a short stay. We discovered this place last year and got a great welcome then. Back in Benalmadena this year we were very pleased to see an unchanged staff and still the same warm hearted welcome and be remembered. The menu is quite good and whilst you are waiting we were served complimentary red peppers marinated in olive oil which were just right to set the tone for the meal. Although the service can be a bit slow the wait is worth it as the quality of what you get is worth it. I can recommend their fish kebab and my wife enjoyed her mussels marinera a spanish version of moules marinieres but with a hint of saffron to make them unique. Not to be sneezed at. on both occasions we enjoyed a complimentary bottle of white house wine which was an ideal accompaniement to go with our meal. As we plan to have a regular break at the end of a demanding British winter in Benalmadena they are garanteed to see us again next year.

La Perla is an excellent restaurant. The big menu cards (You don´t need your glasses there) have a good variation of starters, main courses and desserts. I chose the Foie Gras with Goat Chesse for starter. It was really delicious, beautiful decorated and came with the best sauce I ever had. The salad the rest of the party had was fresh and tasty. There wasn´t any kids menu on the menu card, but no promlem - we got a choise of different courses for the kids, and they loved the food.
The main couses were very good as well. The entrecote cooked exactly to the point we asked for and the leg of lamb very tasty as well.
The service was very professional and friendly.

I visited this restaurant on a recent trip to Benemaldena Pueblo. It's on a little strip where there's a few restaurants on the main road into the Pueblo. I'd read Tripadvisor reports before visiting and had seen that the pizzas were good, so thought I'd give it a try. The pizza is of a very high standard, good thin crust, and easy to eat without being too doughy and filling. It was full of Spanish locals on the Saturday night I was there, and the bar that you walk through to get into the restaurant at the back was particularly busy with locals watching the footie on TV. All in all, it had a good ambience, the food was great and I'd definitely recommend it and go back myself on my next trip there.

i was walking with my son and his family and were stopped by most of the guys to get us in. However one stood out as he was really genuine and helpful caleed Des (Desi in Spanish). we walked for another hour then decided to go back and he was true to his word, the food was really really good. I had Entrecotte Rquefor, my son and daughter in law Shoulder of Lamb, my grandson T Bone, and my granddaughter grilled Halibut. She actually said it was the best meal she had. Will be going back again, when they come to Spain to see me next year.
