We were spending the weekend at Benahavis and wanted to have a really good dinner. I read all the reviews on TA about the most rated restaurants, picked up two and went to have a look at them, they looked nice and all were full of people, but nothing special... then I spotted this place. Immaculate, beautifully decorated inside and with a lovely presented terrace on the same square as a couple of the other well known eateries. We got a lovely table and were offered a glass of cava while waiting. The food was absolutely excellent and, believe me, I am very fussy! We had a plate of Iberian jamon to share and fabulous melting away Balanchares grilled cheese with a side touch of guacamole. For the main course we had a duck breast eith roadted bananas, which was superb and succulent, and my friend had a tuna steak, which was cookef to perfection. We carried on with the cold cava as it was a very hot night, and for dessert - the lightest mango pannacotta and lemon pie (the pie was good, but heavy). I particularly want to stress how good, attentive and smiley were the stuff, especially the most wonderful waitress Eva - very special, her fellow colleague Juan Jose was very helpful as well. The total check for two - 89€, which is very reasonable for the quality of food and the service we enjoyed. Very much looking forward to returning to this great restaurant. Highly recommended!!!

New restaurant in Benahavis, the varied menu took our eye and we weren't disappointed, as it was a Monday it wasn't overly busy but the service issues mentioned in other reviews weren't evident at all, there were plenty of staff about and the whole experience was lovely. I had the boar tenderloin which was amazingly tender and the fresh vegetables and handmade fries were a refreshing change. Give it a go you won't be disappointed- Los Abanicos is too busy and becoming overrated and this is a great alternative- we'll be back!!

The food we had was fine (I had very tender wild boar tenderloin) but a little pricier than others that offered better value for money.
But, as others have mentioned, it's the service that is letting them down. Everyone is friendly enough, but I think it could be that this is a new player on the block and the staff are relatively inexperienced and that these problems are the sort you would expect with new staff. But this is Benahavis, so they need to sort it out quickly otherwise they won't last.
Great location, on the square at the end of the main drag, but they are next to well established restaurants with great reputations.

Good position in village square in central Benahavis. The welcome was warm and we were asked for our drinks order, the menu was quite varied. Although we were happy to wait, chat etc.....the food was actually very slow in arriving and some meals arrived slower than others. As it was quite obvious we were waiting the maitre d' offered us some small little pieces of chicken, which we enjoyed. The service was slow, I must stress myself and my friends are happy with time to talk but this was too slow. Our food was average and most of the staff, although very pleasant, appeared to be being trained on the 'job'. All acceptable but when the bill came we were charged for the chicken canapés ......unimpressed. Early days ? Teething problems? This restaurant could be good but needs to get it's act together. .....there is a lot of comostition in Benahavis.

This is a lovely restaurant in the square with good space for Al fresco dining . We started off with a glass of Fino I'm not 100% sure they quite knew what it was as they bought out the bottle and poured it into a wine glass !! . The service on the whole was mediocre no topping up of wine glass . We had fish of the day sea bream baked in salt which was lovely it was excellently prepared at the table by one of the waiters and served beautifully not a bone to be had . A lovely choice of desserts to choose from to finish off our meal . We had a pleasant meal just a little bit of attention to detail needed
