“Still the best!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I visited here multiple times on a trip with my family 3 years ago. I just returned to southern Spain with my wife and we drove from Ronda to Benahavís just to eat at Amigos. It was totally worth it. We loved the food. There was a short wait to get in but it was not too bad.

The entrees and desserts are all wonderful. The drive through the mountains is fun also. If you are looking for a delicious meal look no further.

“Good but not as good as Amanhavis”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

When eating in Amigos we could not help comparing our experience with Amanhavis which is by far our favourite restaurant. We went to Amigos for a change. The service was lacking, empty glasses left on the table for the duration of the dinner, it was hard to get a drink and no one came around to ask if all was OK and if we wanted a second drink as they were clearly understaffed at the time, the waitress had to cope with both inside and the terrace. Service was friendly and you can tell they care and want to get it right but clearly lack in all areas. The food was good but we did not get the wow feeling. Maybe we should give them a second chance though since they clearly made an effort with us. I hope they take this as constructive criticism.

“Delightful with delicious food”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

There is nothing I dislike about this restaurant. We return each year on holiday and the food is incredible. Outstanding, tasty, generous portions and a meat lovers paradise,tho the fish dishes are amazing too...try the salmon and rosada skewer...yum!! Mixed grill delicious, as are the ribs, and the cheesecake and banofee pie in particular are scrumptious. Lovely staff, and a fabulous setting...great to eat outside if you go during the summer months. I promise you will love it

“Fantastic food in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We were tipped off about this restaurante in the beautiful Benahavis, Marbella. We checked it out with some family friends while on holiday there and loved it. Igor who owns and runs the restaurante was a perfect host and no dish disappointed. My partner and I tried different fish main courses and cleaned up but if your up for a challenge try the shoulder of lamb. Highly recommended.
