La Escalera is a good restaurant attended personally by the owner, who is very friendly. The food was very good although the service was not the best part since the place was full with several celebrations but overall was a nice experience.

Went having read reviews and as recommended by receptionist in our hotel. Friendly welcome and prompt service,Spanish interior with huge window looking down onto the street below. Good menu choice. We all enjoyed the food, nothing exceptional but all well cooked and tasty. About average price to pay for the meal in Benahavis.. We are a family of 4 with a young daughter, the waiter (who I imagine is also the owner) was very friendly verging on being too over familiar. We watched him entertain a table with 3 young kids and they loved it when he messed around but when he turned his attention to us it didn't go down so well with our daughter! I believe he wants to make kids welcome which is great but maybe needs to choose is playmates a little more carefully!

Return visit to La Escalera confirmed standards of cuisine and service are consistent, really enjoyed the ox tail (a taste from childhood) all the dishes for our party of 4 were good and the service is friendly and fun, one of the waiters even does a quick sketch of one of the party on the bill, great location overlooking the Calle Malaga and one to return to.

Visited Los Faroles for the first time in a few years. Warm greeting, nice table next to the window good menu with a different take on some of the traditional Spanish fayre. The meat in our dishes, pork fillet (grandmother style) and sirloin steak, were excellent but were accompanied on the plate with a SINGLE small potato and a tiny smattering of veg so less than half way through the meal your were left with a plate of meat to finish.

Can’t complain about the service or ambience or quality but suggest that for a few cent more they stick some more potatoes and veg on the plate!
