“Try their Sunday lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Dave and Rose are excellent hosts, always make you feel welcome and no matter how busy they are try and talk to all their customers. The terrace gets the sun all day, and we live having our Sunday lunch there, fresh veg, homemade gravy and delicious road ties!

“Real Gem Add to Your Must Visit List”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Visited this bar/Restaurant early April with my better half following advice from fellow Trip Advisor members and what a real gem of a place it really is.
Great views over seafront and Marina with happy friendly service from Dave and Rose who are only too happy to spend the time of day with you and keep there bar spotlessly clean with clean toilets too boot.
Beer and Rose wine went down a treet nice and cold and on both visits Food was of a very high standard and with Daily Tapas available at any 3 from daily list at only 5.5 euro very good value.
Sunday roast with fresh veg the best i have tried on the coast in a long time washed down with a fantastic nikerboker glory a real treat.
Overall thanks to my fellow trip advisors for your advice, defo one for the list and will defo return again and again.

“Great place to eat and drink.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Totally missed this place on our first visit to Benalmadena in Nov.We wont be making that mistake again! I like to eat ,hubby loves a pint and our little boy loved the free wi-fi and chicken bites so much we had to keep going back. I had a sunday roast while we were here and it was probably the best Ive had abroad (proper home cooked everything which is hard to find in uk these days let alone in spain).So impressed went back for full English next day which was just as good. Wanted to try the tapas later in day which i saw others trying but was too full after the lovely brekkie.
Very friendly staff ,great food and location and very reasonable prices-will definitely return.
