Enjoyed a lovely meal here with family whilst in Benalmadena. The only negative was that they there didnt appear to be enough staff, we were waiting for ages before we got a menu and finally received a drink. The waiter gave us a round of drinks for free to compensate for the delays. Overall the atmosphere and food was excellent... More

Just had the most delicious meal at this restaurant which we found on Trip Advisor and visited because of it's proximity to our hotel. We were not disappointed. The service was very friendly but not in your face. The food was excellent. We would particulately recommend the Lamb special for two and the apple and walnut cake. The price of... More

The menu is very good value, the food is delicious, Stevie is lovely as is her husband. We go every year and are given a warm welcome every time. We had fillet which was cool to perfection and to die for. Well worth a visit and set menu is more than worth a try

First off our server Kelly was great. Couldn't ask for better service. We had to make reservations 2 days ahead but it was worth it. The lamb for 2 was the best I've ever had. Fall off the bone tender, delicious mint sauce and gravy. Great value with a bottle of wine as well. We will definitely be back for... More

Hvis du vil have lækker og veltilberedt mad, så besøg El Naranjo! Mad tilberedt fra bunden; man går ikke på kompromis med kvaliteten. Vi spiste her 3 aftner i løbet af vores nylige ferie i Benalmadena Costa. Det kunne have været flere gange, men når der fyldt op er der ikke plads til flere - så bestil evt. bord forud!... More

Visited this restaurant on the 21st October and we were very fortunate to get in. Had read previous reviews about needing to book but thought we would be ok at this time of year. The place was packed and we had the last table. Food was excellent as was the service and speed. Toilets immaculate as well. Had the lamb... More

This place is well worth including in your places to eat during a stay in Benalmadena. Very welcoming and a menu that has enough variety to satisfy everyone from children to the most discerning of adults. Altogether a very pleasant experience.

Came across El Naranjo when staying at Benal Beach. We noticed it was full every evening. We ate there on two evenings and as a lot of reviewers have mentioned the lamb sharer was wonderful. We went back for a meat feast two days later and wasn't disappointed. Friendly service and great value for money. Particularly when they throw in... More

We have been wanting to visit this restaurant on previous trips but when it's hot prefer al fresco dining...poor weather on the evening of our visit presented the prefect opportunity to go. We had not reserved a table but we were lucky to bag the only free one left. Service is polished and professional and the food was sublime, highlights... More
