A meal at los Abanicos is a must for everyone. It is situated in Benahavis, which is a small town around 20 minutes drive into the mountains form Marbella and Puerto Banus and Los Abanicos is a must visit for everyone who comes to stay in the area (read more in our regional info section).
Los Abanicos provides real atmosphere for a superb meal. The restaurant speciality is the slow cooked baby shoulder of Lamb. This dish is cooked over the course of the day and the meat simply falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. Another fantastic dish that i love here is the sea bass slowly roasted in salt, it takes a while to prepare (they warn you of this) but the result is that the fish is amazingly tender and tasty. If you have not had this dish before then its definately worth the wait.
The town is great and it is lovely to stroll around before and after your meal just soaking up the Spanish atmosphere. A word to the wise, don't bother with starters, the portions are massive.
