Bars in the village

Bars in Benahavis are a joy for the palate, as well as being amongst the coziest on the Costa del Sol. You have the choice between traditional tapa bars, British orientated bars or late night venues.

Bodeguita El Chico : The smallest bar in Benahavis

A landmark in Benahavis, you probably will to have to wait for a table outside. Excellent hot and cold tapas served by Chico and Antonia, the welcoming hosts.
Chico also serves the meanest Gin & Tonics on the Coast.
And if you want a special dish, just call Chico one day before, he will prepare it for you. He was a chef at the Kashoggi mansion ( what is now La Zagaleta ) so you certainly will not be disappointed.
No dogs allowed, not even on the terrace, and no men with vests either!

Open 5PM until ?
Closed on Tuesday
