Description: 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.

We were told about Los Abanicos & that the food was really good so we gave it a go. We booked a table for approx 9pm . After a long drive trying to find the restaurant we eventually found it!!! We were seated & ordered a drink. We then decided to share a starter ,we had the squid calamari this was good not what i thought i had ordered but it was fine fresh tasted good. Mains my wife chose the Beef Stroganoff & i chose The suckling Pig. Well i am glad we shared a starter the portion sizes were huge The beef dish came with a huge serving of rice with very thin crispy chips & lots of beef fillet in chunks on the plate with a very rich sauce. mine came with gratin potatoes Chips & vegetables .The pork was very nice tender full of flavour & skin was perfectly cooked .In fact both dishes were really good, however we did not need chips with vegetable & gratin potatoes the food we were given could have fed 4 people there was just to much. But im not complaining next time i will make sure in starving before eating there The beef was very tender the veg cooked perfectly ,,all in all a really nice meal in a lovely setting .
I would go back for sure

We were looking forward to a special meal after a recommendation from a friend and making the hours drive from
Benalmadena. The setting is beautiful. We ordered suckling pig and fillet steak, the suckling pig was fine but the steak was over cooked and dry, we were not offered any choice of potatoes or veg and were given boiled rice mange tout and carrot. Other tables had cauliflower cheese and chips or potatoes. The service was so slow that having waited over 20 minutes for the bill we left leaving our estimate of the bill in cash, never needed to do this anywhere before. Will go back to Benahavis but not to Los Abanicos.

Had late night dinner there the other night with wife and son (following a good friend's recommendation). Food, service and ambiance were all the best you could hope for. Traditional Spanish restaurant at its very best. We'll definitely be there again the next time around, and hopefully rather sooner than later.

Not able to sit outside due to late booking, but the inside is equal to the task. Great atmosphere, professional service and excellent food.
