“A fantastic restaurant with always good high quality!”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

Every summer the last 10 years we spend a couple of weeks on La Carihuela in Costa del Sol. Every time we have at least two very nice dinners at Spanish Garden. After a while you get bored on the typical "Costa food" like fried fishes paella etc and would like to have other spanish good quality food with nice service minded personnell.
Spanish Garden have a little more fine-food-dishes and they always serve high quality products! We are never ever disappointed after a nice 2 or 3 course dinner and always have a nice experience and feel weel looked after at a reasonable price.
We love the salmon/roqeufort/avocado starter and every second time we have the calfes liver as our main course. Really recommend that if you like liver!
Something else that make Spanish Garden something extra is the accompaniments they serve with the main courses that no other restaurantes on the Costa does- mmmm always three different things that make your meal be something really extra.
And something else worth mentioning is the little "surprise on the house" you always are treated with when you order - yummy!
Can't say anything else than one of the best restaurantes in Torremolinos, in the area close to Benalmadena.

“Conistently good food and service”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

I have visited Spanish gardens more than half a dozen times! Everytime we go we know we are guaranteed delicious food and prompt service. The menu is fabulous with very unusual dishes and a good balance between fish and meat dishes! I have taken a few different people on each visit to benelmadena as I am confident they will have a great meal. You can either sit in the main restaurant on at the front in the conservatory bit. The reataurant does get quite warm and dosent have great views but you can overlook that as the restaurant is nicely decorated and very welcoming. The staff are on the ball and the timing inbetween each course is perfect. The king prawns with a curried creamy sauce are a must-try! On one or two occasions the atmosphere has been lacking somewhat possibly due to us liking to eat quite late. We always go here on our last night before we go home as its always a special meal. Free shots with the bill are a nice extra. A bit more expensive than the average restaurant but you certainly get what you pay for!

“Top drawer”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

Came to this place twelve years ago with a recommend which we really enjoyed. looked it up on TA which gave good reviews so we called in. Didnt book but it gets very busy so probably best to call and reserve table. Staff friendly and professional,buzzing atmosphere, great choice of excellent food and wine, well worth a try. Price good for the standard of food and service approx 30euro per head.

“Enjoy a nice meal in relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

The menu has a good choice of meat and fish dishes, well presented. Whilst browsing the menu you are given dips, bread and pate with celery, carrot, cauliflour and brocoli a very nice touch. I would say if you prefer a gap between first and second courses advise your waiter otherwise it comes too fast. No street sellers allowed inside. Good wine menu. Friendly helpful staff.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We have tried a lot of restaurants in Torremolinos but Spanish Garden was far the best. It is not at the beach and it has no eye-catcher outer look, but what really matters, is excellent: the food (try casserole and the cream cheese), the hospitality of the owner (a French (yes!) woman) and the great service of the waiters makes this place a must. We ate there twice (went back on Sunday too, to have a last cake on our last day, but unfortunately, it was closed). Highly recommended!
