Varied and eclectic menu but all our dishes, though very different, we're really good. Nice setting although their restaurant furniture could be improved. We were with some very fun people; otherwise I would probably agree with some of the other reviewers that the atmosphere could be a bit on the dull side

The owner is nice but the food and atmosphere are jsut dull. And they still use too much salt.

Some of the other reviews led me to believe this place might be sub-par.... but we tried it anyway after reading the menu posted outside the door... and WOW! Food was carefully prepared and amazing! The staff was more than happy to adjust the ingredients for picky tastes....and while sometimes you run into a restaurant that can't adjust AND keep the flavor, La Cocina exceeded all expectations! The caprese salad had a twist that set it apart from all I have tried before. The chicken skewers were grilled to perfection. Steak was cooked exactly as ordered and the gnocchi was beyond delicious. If you have the chance, try it!

Tried again. Thank God the old chef has gone. The food was better but overpriced and ther was no atmosphere. This is a poor choice for benahavis. Much better places to go.
