Visited this place 3 times in the last week, very good position overlooking the sea front, clean tidy bar and terrace, good prices on drinks, snacks and breakfasts, lovely friendly staff, Rose and Dave are two of the most friendly accommodating people in Benalmadena. I would recommend this place and I would return again my next holiday

Went here with my son for an early lunch. I had a cheese omelette with chips & my son had sausage egg chips & beans. Both meals were good portions tasty & fair on price. Had Wi-Fi like most places. Would recommend if you are looking for some good old British grub.
