Description: Fantastic little cafe/bar just off the main strip of Benidorm. We ourselves love sun and sea holidays, but were always looking for a place that sold a decent cup of coffee & tea, tasty & generously filled sandwiches, home baking and hearty but healthy freshly prepared meals........... So we decided to do it ourselves and have moved from Edinburgh to set up shop in Benidorm. If you're looking for a family friendly cafe, stop off point or just want to pop in and check your email with our free WiFi look no further - you could even have a snack and drink while you're here. We look forward to meeting you soon.

“What a lovely new bar we have found!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

We work in Benidorm and stumbled across Brogans a couple of months ago. We were looking for somewhere away from all the booming to have a little drink and a bite to eat before work and were thrilled when we met Karen and Trevor. We've had their traditional 'Neeps and Tatties' which was delicious but my personal favourite is the chilli and a pint for 4.50e!!! But obviously not overlooking Trevor's homemade traditional Scottish shortbread....Brogan's is the only bar where I prefer to drink tea/coffee than beer as you get a free shortbead!!! Keep up the good work guys xx

Dear Cathryn,

Many thanks for taking the time to leave us a five star review!
As a new business here in Benidorm it is great to receive such positive comments about Brogans Café/Bar.

As you say, our situation (next door to the Clay Oven Indian Restaurant, near the Town Cabaret and Jokers) is less noisy than the nightclub type bars and this allows our customers to have a relaxing time whilst enjoying our varied menu and refreshments.

We are striving to provide an alternative to the usual fayre provided by holiday establishments and are pleased that our freshly cooked homemade dishes are proving so popular, indeed our 'Taste of Home' dishes, which include Stovies, Mince & Tatties and Haggis are amongst the best sellers off our menu.

We are glad to hear that you enjoy the homemade Shortbread, we aim to provide our customers with 'that little bit extra' to ensure their visit to Brogans is one they will enjoy :)

It is always a pleasure to serve you and your friends and we look forward to seeing you again soon!


Kindest Regards,
Trevor and Karen.

“Best pint in Benidorm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Just back from Beni. Drank in Brogans a few nights. Nice friendly welcoming owner. Good price and one of the best pints of Estrella in Benidorm. Quiz night on a Thursday is a good laugh(yes I was on the winning team).

Dear Paul,

Many thanks for your recent review.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the Thursday night quiz, we have just recently introduced the quiz nights as an alternative to the usual cabaret acts etc found in the louder venues around Benidorm.

Our situation between Jokers and the Town Cabaret is a little quieter and that enables Brogans to provide an atmosphere where our customers can relax and enjoy a sociable time with friends and family.

It is great to hear you found the pints of Estrella to be 'one of the best in Benidorm', perhaps on your next visit to Brogans you will sample some of our other very reasonably priced refreshments :)

Thanks again for your review, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.


Kind Regards,
Trevor and Karen.

“A visit everyday.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We found this place on the 1st day of our two week holiday. Glad we did! Trevor is a great host and made us feel welcome. Food and drinks are cheap as chips and it's a great pint! Will be our 1st stop next year at Benidorm. Had to write this review to say thanks for being part of our holiday. Top job sir... See you next year buddy.

“Family friendly bar,good prices,great service..highly recommended!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Visted this bar many times,its easy to find..if your at jokers corner just follow the road down to clay oven its just before.The owners Trevor and Karen cannot do enough to welcome you,they provide table service which is a dying service in many british bars in benidorm..so thankyou for keeping up the spanish tradition and reminding us brits we are still actually in spain!! lol.During the day its got a nice sun terrace and its a nice quiet relaxed atmosphere,they also serve food freshly cooked to order and Trevors handcut chips are to die for..best in benidorm !!.We tried the quiz night on a thursday and had a great night..lots of laughs and fun,and also a chance to meet new friends and have a natter..even if you aint that clever(like us lol)its a great alternative to the usual stuff in benidorm.Another nice touch is the little bowls of crisps and snacks they provide..all free of charge too!!...another freebie is the wifi.We also found it to be an ideal place to celebrate your birthday..we invited a few friends down and Trevor and Karen provided snacks n tapas and made them all very welcome and we all had a great night..so weather your a couple,family or group its got something to suit all..and its a place you MUST vist when your in benidorm.A big thankyou to Trevor and Karen for providing a much needed little jewel of a bar in benidorm..only a few streets from the british square ..yet it feels a million miles away..good luck for the future ..see you next time we vist xxx

Dear fozzytruck,

What a superb review of Brogans Café/Bar Benidorm, it is wonderful to read such positive comments!

As you say, we provide a less noisy atmosphere than the nightclub type bars on the square and this allows our customers to enjoy a sociable time with friends and family. . . . . . It also allows our customers to unwind after a busy day at one of the local theme parks such as Terra Mitica or Mundomar.

The Thursday night quiz is fairly new for us and we are please to note that as the word spreads they are proving popular and are indeed a fun evening for all age groups :)

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your birthday celebrations at Brogans, we are always happy to provide that little bit extra (such as snacks and tapas) to ensure a good time is had by all!

Also, thank you for your comments regarding our food - we are striving to provide an alternative to the usual fayre provided by holiday establishments and are pleased that our freshly cooked homemade dishes are proving so popular (especially it would seem our handcut chips!!)

Thank you again for your valued review, we both look forward to welcoming you back in the future.


Kindest Regards,
Karen & Trevor.
