“Not cheap but a very worthwhile experience.”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Located in the marina complex with first floor aspect, Jack's has a lovely overview.
As it is in Spain, they use Argentinian beef, unfortunately, but their food preparation and presentation is superb. Be hungry before you go there.
Currently, on Sundays 2 to 4 pm, they have an excellent Soul/Motown singer and he, combined with the overwhelming Sunday roast dinner, make for a well spent afternoon.
Recommended! Try it and see.

“Lovley food, very expensive, patchy service”
Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

We visited here mid October, only a couple of people inside. Got a seat with a great view of the marina.
Food was good, well presented and good quality. Service was a little slow, asked for the bill the girl said no problem but she stood at the door and it never arrived, only a small thing and we just paid at the counter on the way out. Bill had some sort of extra tax on it, I presume because we were in the marina. Would of been nice to be informed before hand.
Overall a good meal, very expensive, wouldn't rule out going back but won't be rushing back.

“Good Food, lovely setting”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Jacks Brasserie is located in the harbour in Benalmadena and with the option to sit out in the open overlooking the harbour it is a fabulous venue.
The mixture of Amreican and TexMex food on an extensive menu make it a crowd pleaser as there is something for everyone.
The food was delicious if somewhat pricey. the Strawberry Daquiris are to die for but at €8 a pop are a bit expensive.

“Nice Vista but Waaaaay Over priced”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Sat on the terrace overlooking the beautiful Marina.

Unfortunately the food let this place down. Nachos starter were ok but my burger was dry & tasteless.

50€ for the meal was totally over priced, even for the Marina. 5€ IVA tax is added to the bill so beware of the extra charge.

“ok if you like big portions”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

a diner with lovely views over the marina. i dont have a lot to say as i 'm not really keen on this type of restaraunt ( I WENT WITH FAMILY) the food was ok but as you would expect just far to big portions. the staff were polite , friendly enough but i still felt like i was just a number and that they were robots.. it wasn't a bad diner , just not great.
