Benahavis Village

Los Abanicos

Among Marbella and Estepona (Malaga), and through a mountain road about 7 kms, lies the village of BENAHAVIS. Marco immensely beautiful for its peace and serenity, which is achieved thanks to its green landscape of mountains and rivers. A typical Andalusian town of whitewashed houses and flowers in facades, within which is the RESTAURANT “LOS ABANICOS”

A family business that meets its twenty-sixth year of life and is characterized by its famous quality in the product. Founded in the year 1981. Marriage founder, with the help of her two sons, turned his dream into reality and now they are two and their respective families which, with great dedication, sacrifice and effort have achieved the reward supposed today have two restaurants whose good name is known through its customers here and beyond our borders.

The main reason for the success achieved so far is the choice of raw materials. The quality of the ingredients used in each culinary development is paramount, and they are  chosen by the expert hands of its owners, which are very strict, and that want to get a good final product to meet the most demanding palates.

The basic pillar within its menu are meat, the star dishes are: SHOULDER OF LAMB, SACKLING PIG, MARINATED PORK FILET or OX TAIL; events such as the tradition of yesteryear required. Along with this, there is also a selection of grilled meats of exceptional quality that are provided in various corners of  Spain and beyond its borders.

Also, the variety of the menu would also accommodate dishes like duck to the Orange, king prawns in Jack Daniel’s, the Golden salt, the cream spinach, Pil-pil prawns, Norwegian Salmon Salad , and other delights for the palate. And of course, not forgetting dishes from the area as the garlic with white melon (characteristic of the area of Malaga), an excellent Pata Negra cure ham and the internationally known Andalusian gazpacho.
