Sorry no pictures, mine would of only been the same anyway. This place is set in a lovely little square down some of the loveliest Spanish streets i've ever walked. The food is very affordable and very well presented and tastes very nice, a great small selection of tapas. Please visit, enjoy the food and area.

I visited La Nina two years ago for an evening meal and enjoyed it that much on a recommendation that I wanted to go again this year. La Nina is located in possibly my favourite location in Benalmedina pueblo village; a beautiful square with a fountain, just down from the quaint church and main central road. It is so tranquil...

Fabulous tapas in a picturesque setting. We had the lunch deal of 3 tapas plus bread and a drink. I had house white and it was very nice. Lots of tasty tapas to choose from. There were 4 of us and every dish was lovely. Have recommended to friends.

I often meet friends here for lunch as it's close to where I live. The waiter is super friendly and always service with a smile. The tapas lunch menu is fantastic value and delicious. Choose three tapas and a glass of wine or beer for €7.50!! My personal favourites are the pig cheeks, which are slow cooked and so tasty.... More

Lovely restaurant on the square in the pretty village of benalmadena pueblo surrounded by orange trees and looking onto the fountain. Great food drink and service. Lovely tapas and deal on tapas and a drink, shame that out of season its not open in the evening. Pigs cheeks were lovely - recommended

Great value and great food. Friendly service, what's not to like. Parking in village currently difficult but that does not detract from La Niña

We visited Benalmadena Peublo over Christmas 2016. We spent many happy hours sitting outside at this fabulous restaurant in the Plaza Espana. The food, drink and staff made for a memorable atmosphere and experience. Definitely would recommend.

Restaurante La nina is situated in The Pueblo and has many dishes on the menu. Try the tapas menu or the ribs. Quite possibly one of the best meals I've had in a long time.

You can have different tapas with a drink for very good prices. Everything we've tried was delicious but our favorite were the fried calamaris. Never had those as superb as in this place!! Incomparable!
