“Lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Delicious three course menu which changes every day we have been twice during our stay. The manager is a lovely man and regulars go every visit to Benalmadena. This tells you a lot.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

A must visit whenever we visit Benelmadena, great Value 3 course meals inluding wine for about £10.00. Upgrade the wine to a nice Rioja for £3.00. Angel and his staff super friendly. Thursday special, a real steak with trimmings and wine £10.00, try it.

“Love this restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We holiday in Benalmadana for a month every April and Cordero is one of our favourite restaurants. The set menu of 3 courses, which changes every day, plus half a bottle of wine is excellent value at €11.50. Angel and his staff are always friendly and efficient , never rushing you even when it's very busy. Well worth a visit.

“Maybe just a bad night.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Lovely restaurant, very busy ,great atmosphere, superb waiters.

Everything was fine, but I had the nights special" Sole in a brandy sauce" & I am afraid I didn't like it, my wife had Gammon , but like me thought the chips were awful, they seemed oily & dried up.

I think I picked the wrong meal, we were going to try El Cordero again because we thought it was just a bad night, but tried different places instead. We will visit again when we return to Benalmadena.

“Well worth seeking out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

We were in Benalmadena in February, so the resort was quite quiet at night. We spotted this restaurant in an unusually quiet Bonanza Square & went in. There were quite a few people inside & I'm not surprised. The food was great. We were only in Spain for 3 nights & we ate here for 2 of them. Nuff said.
