Food and ambience

Location and contact

Located in the heart of Benahavis, this restaurant is part of the gastronomic history of this lovely town nestled in the rolling countryside Guadalmina Valley, also known as the dining room of the Costa del Sol. Since his wanderings began back in the early 80s as a small eatery, and blunted for their good work and gastronomic treatment and family-friendly service. Now, in the hands of the second generation of the family it has not only managed to maintain that spirit, but has even improved, growing and refining their dishes and service. We will provide an extensive and exquisite menu that combines both local cuisine and the best of typical Spanish recipe. All this washed down with one of the most extensive and selected wine menu from the Costa del Sol. If you decide to visit us, be sure to spend an unforgettable time with both family and friends, as if what they want is to look good in a business meeting, no doubt, this is your restaurant. We hope to see you soon at our house. Thank you very much.

Sorry for late reply. The only other way of booking is to visit the restaurant if you are staying in the area. I've always booked by phone with no problems.
