Situated at the end of the road into Benahavis village, this cozy bodega is hidden away in one of the most picturesque spots of the village, a little courtyard in a small development designed by David Marshall.
The new manager, Ali, has been a well known face on the coast for the last 25 years. Her first foray into hospitality was managing Los Arcos in Benavista 21 years ago. Ali has been behind the bar of La Bodega for the last 18 months so knows the ropes inside out!
During the winter months there will be a series of special offers along with quiz and bingo nights and, of course, the odd football match or two. One of the specials is Friday Night Cava – only €9.95 a bottle – bargain!!
The Courtyard Bodega serves a selection of wines, beers and spirits, as well as some tapas.
Open from 17.00 until late.

A landmark in Benahavis, you might 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 Cico one day before, he will prepare it for you. He was also 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 late, Sundays from 1PM
Closed on Tuesdays
