Restaurant recommendations

Hi we are staying at benalmadena palace from the12th of August until the19th and looking for some good restaurants, we don't mind walking so either near the hotel or anywhere within 40 mins walking distance, looking for god steak, fish and paella, any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Lee

3 from me then.

El Naranjo, La Taberna and Rodeo Steakhouse. All are close to the Windmills roundabout about 20mins walk from BP.

Head to the Windmills turn left inland 70m to ElNaranjo. Cross over the roundabout to the Traffic light controlled crossing, just behind the lights is Rodeo Steakhose, cheaper but better quality than the steakhoses in the marina. A little further on, 100m or so, La Taberna is a little set back off the footpath. This is a set menu for 3 course for around 15€. A la Carte also available.

I would second El Naranjo (The Orange Tree) - probably my favourite restaurant in Benal. Elegant yet not pretentious and not too basic either, just excellent food, tasty and not overboard on price.

If its a good steak you like I would say Rodeo Steak House, go hungry as the steaks are large.. We also use the other two mentioned in above posts, and food also good there..Enjoy your stay..x

+ 1 for the suggestions above.

Also, if you don't mind going to Arroyo there are two Spanish restaurants that are very good and have authentic fish dishes.

About a 10/15 minutes walk. Whilst you can cut across I would walk down to the main road, turn left and take the first left after hotel Las Arenas.

El Cordero is oft recommended. Giorgios a little higher up Ave Bonanza (opposite CJ`s Karaoke) is well regarded (although a little too cheesy for me) large portions and reasonably priced Italian.

Bonanza Bar is good for entertainment afterwards.
