Having driven around Benahavis for a while, got lost a few times and went the wrong way down one way streets we found a parking space and came across this place.
The street that it is on is buzzing and very picturesque. From the moment we stood outside we were made to feel very welcome. The food was great, service was quick and the prices very reasonable. A really lovely restaurant

Lovely restaurant with fantastic menu with many choices. Very charming owners who went out of their way to make our meal memorable. Food sensational, nothing pre-prepared cooked to order.. with some very interesting local dishes using local ingredients. Nothing was too much trouble, and lots of nice touches from the chef.. all delicious. Tables in the street as well as a more private and pretty roof terrace.. enjoyed watching the world go by. Could not recommend more highly.. menu reasonably priced, especially for the quality and originality of the food..
A good comprehensive wine list with lots of local wines

Arrived in Benahavis on our yearly Sunday lunch to find our favorite restaurant Le Sarten had closed down. So we tried this restaurant as it had a terrace on the first floor to escape the heat. The owners were very friendly and welcoming plus they spoke English as my Spanish was not so good!
We decided to order our usual and see if the chef was up to our standard!
Have to admit not great! My roast leg of lamb was dry and the skin was hard. Usually it's so tender as it's cooked slowly in the oven and you only need a fork to eat it! Looked and tasted like it had been cooked well beforehand and then warmed up in the oven. Same with my husbands roast pork!
We should have stuck to salads and paella!
Restaurant is clean and neat and good service.

Finding a place to eat on Monday afternoon at 04.00 PM is in Benahavis not an easy job. Many well-known restaurants are based in the city but even during high season closed on Monday or closed for siesta. One person advised us to visit the family restaurant Los Faroles what was an excellent advice. The friendly staff offered a table on the terrace and gave us all the time to make a choice from the menu. All starters were delicate and made from fresh ingredients. The burgers made for our two boys were much better than they have ever eaten, the chicken for the two ladies was juicy and well prepared, my brother in law had a wonderful lams shoulder made with exciting herbs and my steak was mega and grilled exactly as ordered. The wine we had was very good and the drink offered from house at the end of the meal was well received. The total price for six people was a positive surprise. The bill showed a very reasonable total amount for excellent food and old traditional guest attention. This was hospitality how it should be! We will come back!
