Joined the club to use the facilities and ended up having two meals here , first a roast dinner which was excellent and great value at three course to 20 euros. The second was their Indonesian grill which consisted of 12 taster dishes. Again food was superb. Excellent setting with stunning views. Highly recommended

We visited with friends for lunch two days ago. The Cafe is well signposted on the road through Benahavis village. The road up to the venue is very steep & our car barely made it out of first gear on the way up (but don't let that put you off.) There is car parking opposite the cafe & a short walk from there, through the glass doors & into the lift takes you to the restaurant. The views from the terrace of the surrounding countryside down to the sea are stunning. We had a toddler with us & a highchair was provided along with colouring pens etc. She loved being able to dip her feet in the pool to cool down as it was a very hot day, there is also a small play area on grass. The pergola over the terrace does a great job of keeping the worst of the strong sun off when dining. There is a two course menu of the day for a very reasonable price & this was shown to us on the blackboard. There is also a kids menu available. We chose a mixture of dishes from the specials board & the regular menu. The staff were efficient & friendly and helped explain the menu to us. We all agreed that the food was fabulous especially the tuna & egg starter and the light & fragrant oriental soup...simply delicious! The relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff, quality of the decor, spotless toilets & great food all made for a wonderful day. We are only 10 minutes drive from the venue & will definitely return on a more regular basis. It is a fantastic cafe & I have no hesitation in recommending it to you.
