El Banco Bar & Restaurat by La Red » (Restaurants, We Recommend)

Bank On Us


Tucked away in a corner of Aloha Pueblo, El Banco has taken its name from the fact that it was formerly a branch of Banco BBVA, but don’t worry – there is nothing boring or corporate about the interior now. El Banco’s owners, husband and wife team Gustavo Kiguelmam and Laura de Luca, have an […]

Namazake » (Restaurants, We Recommend)

The Essence of Japan


Hotel in-house restaurants can often disappoint, where you are invariably paying for the location and the caché rather tan the food itself. This is not the case at Namazake in the Puente Romano hotel. Probably the best Japanese food I have ever tasted in Spain, this restaurant holds its own in terms of  quality, service […]

Tikitano Beach restaurant & lunch » (Restaurants, We Recommend)

Polynesian Paradise


When considering how best to rate restaurants on the Costa del Sol, I often grade them in terms of where I would take visiting friends and family. Tikitano is a sure winner in this category on many different levels. There simply is no better restaurant on the Coast in terms of location. Its elevated position […]

Restaurante El Reloj » (Restaurants, Save Your Money)

El Reloj is situated on the corner of a pretty sidewalk in the midst of Orange Square.  Upon our visit it was bustling outside with most tables filled and a whole host of waitresses milling around. We were lured to El Reloj for quite a few reasons, it offered free wi fi and the location […]

La Fiorentina » (Restaurants, We Recommend)

Buon Appetito!


La Fiorentina Ristorante Italiano has been gaining a sterling reputation for years. Its prime location, in front of Hotel Crowne Plaza Estepona, must be a factor as is the genius of the Pigani family, who own it and the personal touch provided by manager, Brigitte Pigani. The addition of live music every day means that […]

Restaurante Los Abanicos » (Restaurants, We Recommend)

Restaurante Los Abanicos


The small white village of Benahavis is known as the “gastronomic corner of the Costa del Sol” and in my opinion, this is the best restaurant in town. It is nearly always full in the evenings throughout the year which is pretty impressive. The service is excellent, old-school waiters who help you choose your wine according to your budget […]
