Reviewed 7 May 2014

Spain Square is a a place you could literally spend the whole day and people watch.
If I was ever talented enough to become an author I could relax and write a novel here every day!!
Great selection of bars meals and snacks and an excellent local gift shop(not tacky).
My local would be the Manaos bar but for now its my phone screensaver.
Watch for the fresh oranges dropping on your head from the surrounding trees.

“a wonderful find”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Staying in the main resort of Benamadena we decided to take a trip to the old town. We stumbled accross this restaurant in the main square of the village and having looked at the specials on offer for lunch decided to stop for a bite. I had a tapas selection, selected by the owners, for €10. It was fabulous, i got unusual but fabulous and generous portions of food which were imaginatively executed, my husband got a small portion of mussels but they were amongst the best he has ever tasted and my sons got a variety of croquettes and spaghetti dishes. We also shared a selection of very tasty desserts. This is a brilliant restaurant, my only regret is that we didn't return for an evening meal. The setting amongst orange groves in the lovely square and the very attentive staff added to the overall enjoyment of the meal and the value for the quality of food was excellent. Would highly recommend.

A lovely place surrounded by orange trees and a good stopping point to have a rest and a coffee or something to eat. Three good bars and a lovely restaurant.
