    All of the beach-side cafes and restaurants along: Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood!

    by chipper99 Written Mar 12, 2010

    All along the promenade from Benalmadena into Torremelinos are numerous fish cafes / restaurants going all day long with fresh fish / tapas, grilling and barbecueing. Very tasty and reasonable prices. Be early or slightly late as they are packed in mid afternoon.

  • The Blue Lamp: The Blue Lamp; a rare gem worth finding!

    by marijkestrella Written Feb 15, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We live on the Costa and the Blue Lamp is by far our favourite restaurant, we visit at least once a week. It's got a fantastic menu, and how do they do their 3 course menu of the day for under €10? with 11 starters, 16 main courses and 7 desserts. Each one has tastes that are superb - real proper restaurant quality. Everything home made (including sauces, pate - very unusual). Real fresh veg. and proper potatoes. This would cost £50+ in London!. A la carte menu is brilliant too.

    Favorite Dish: Everything is delicious but we can definitely recommend the following dishes:

    Starter: fried Mushrooms with Garlic dip and fresh Chicken Goujons
    Main course: Cajun Chickenbreast and Homemade Boeuf Borguignonne
    Dessert: Homemade applecrumble with custard and Homemade Trifle.

    Sunsets, Benalmadena, nr windmill roundabout: A great bar with great food and friendly owners

    by nicbarem Written Jun 8, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pop in and see Ken and Wendy at Sunsets and you won't be dissappointed. Near the windmill roundabout and right next door to the mini golf in Benalmadena, their restaurant/bar has great views over Benal Beach. Wendy's cooking is not only hearty and tasty, it is great value for money!

    Hope to be back there soon!!!

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Platter for two was nice and so was the Steak & Stilton Pie!

    Ristorante Da Fano - Italian restaurant.: Excellent ravioli by the marina.

    by Regina1965 Updated Oct 21, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ristorante Da Fano is an Italian pizzeria/trattoria by the marina of Benalmádena. It is a lovely restaurant with both inside and outside seating with a view of the marina. We chose to sit outside. The service was very good, the food was good, the weather was good so all in all it made for a perfect evening.

    Favorite Dish: The dish ordered was ravioli, speciality of the house, with eggplant, bacon and black olives. It was juicy and had strong and rich flavour and was very tasteful. Very often pasta in Spain lacks flavour, but this ravioli was excellent.

    The ravioli was 9.50 Euros, Caffe espresso 2 Euros and Coca Cola was 2 Euros (2008).

    Ristorante da Fano. Excellent ravioli. Complimentary garlic bread with tomato and cheese. Great waiters :D Inside the restaurant.

    School of Catering at Hotel Fonda: Lunch in such fine surroundings at

    by Kettleman Updated Aug 17, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Excellent lunch venue. Must be booked in advance, well in advance in the summer months of July and August. Although we had difficulty in October.

    The waitering staff, sommelier and chefs are all students at the school and you are their guinea pigs.....

    Menu differs by the day and week.

    Favorite Dish: The menu is set for the students to work on and so you have what there is on offer....

    Restaurant El Balcon, La Fonda Hotel, Benalmadena: Wonderful restaurant in La Fonda Hotel

    by amapola66 Updated Feb 10, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurante el Balcon is owned by Escuela de Hosteleria, (School of Catering) serving Mediterranean and Castilian cuisine open for lunch only from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. on Monday to Friday. The service at the restaurant is provided by students, overseen by instructors who keep a close watch and step in to provide assistance when needed. Many of the meals are prepared at table-side and you usually need to book ahead.

    The cocktail bar is lovely too with perfect service.

    Dress up for lunch and enjoy the fine food.

    This restaurant has a reputation of being one of the finest in the region.
    Highly recommended.

    by piersend Updated Apr 14, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is really good, and popular, it is just down the road from Bonanza Square. There are many good and inexpensive chinese retaurants in Benalmadena but the food here is really nice too. 4 courses for 4 euros from the set special Menu! Starter/Main Course/Rice dish/Coffee or Ice Cream, plus a complementary drink at the end :) Also there are individual dishes and set menus for 2 (13 Euros) and a menu for children.

    Favorite Dish: The Hot and Sour Soup is really nice

    There are several Restaurants...

    by piersend Written Nov 4, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are several Restaurants of all diversities in Benalmadena. There's a great Indian called the Noor Mahal which we tried, when they say Madras hot they mean MADRAS HOT!!
    There are several fish restaurants along the sea front just down from the Windmill Island which are very good. But best of all for value are the Chinese restaurants which are ridicoulously cheap, you can get a set meal for one for 3.9 euros (£2.50) which has 4 courses and a complimentary drink! However the quality of the food is very good, better than the UK. There are all sorts of Italian/American/Spanish restaurants by the Marina and more traditional Spanish Tapas bars in Arroyo. Full English Breakfasts are available from several beach side cafes for 2.10 euros, (£1.36) again great value

    Favorite Dish: Noor Mahal - King Prawn Madras
    Avda. antonio machado, 54 frente h. Riviera (Costa)
    952 44 03 37

    Hong Kong: Set dinner

    Las Islas/Dutch Pirate/: Full English Breakfast

    We stopped here on a visit by train from nearby freungirola in 2008. As usual the kids got excited when they saw Mcdonalds.

    Favorite Dish: Milkshake, always a good choice on a hot day.
