“View to die for!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We called into pin noxious for a couple of drinks with a nice view after a long walk from torremolinos, friendly staff and wonderful view, we were made to feel very welcome. We decided to eat here also as we had watched so much delicious looking food being served around us and can only say that this a a cut well above the usual british run establishment, the tapas are freshly cooked and delicious and very reasonably priced too. Can't wait to go back!

“Birthday dinner”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Being away with 3 different age groups and each of us having different food tastes We thoroughly investigated all the restaurants around to get the best choice and value to suit all. We were 5 adults and 2 children under 4 years. Two of the adults were vegetarian and myself who only eats chicken. The restaurant was not easy to find when the taxi dropped us but to walk to it the marina or the Triton hotel was relatively easy. Simon was very helpful with the booking and sorting our menu and they certainly have a very good vegetarian choice, one of the best we saw in the Benalmadena area. The price was very reasonable as well, 5 three course meals, [one was steak] 2 childrens meals, 2 jugs of sangria, one cocktail, 2 special coffee's some soft drinks all for approx 124Euro

My partner and I just got back home after a wonderful afternoon, topped off by a visit to this bar. We read about this place on TripAdvisor and in all honesty I was a little dubious because of a couple of negative posts saying the food was all bought in and the service was lacking and rude.
As soon as we walked on the terrace we were greeted by a lovely lady, all smiles and very friendly. We were served for the rest of the meal by an equally friendly guy, and to say we looked quite scruffy after an afternoon of walking, they were both really lovely to us! I had the carrot and orange soup - probably the best soup I have ever had in any bar or restaurant, and the pasta with meatballs which were homemade and delicious. My partner had a fresh Caprese salad and a very juicy cheeseburger with chips and salad. Because we were unsure about ordering the garlic bread or not, the guy brought us out a couple of pieces anyway just to try which was really nice. For 4 very decent sized portioned meals (I couldn't finish mine), 2 small beers and 1 pint it was only 21 euros. To have such delicious food and friendly, quick service whilst overlooking the sea - really just a wonderful place! We will definitely be coming again, I imagine the restaurant at night with a cocktail or wine is an even better experience :)
