We booked a table and pre ordered the lamb for four of us on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was fully booked when we arrived. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. The lamb comes with a good bottle of house wine, salad or veg, chips and gravy which is its only downfall, we would prefer thick gravy as this is far too watery. But the lamb is so tender and I can see why it’s their signature dish plus it’s very reasonable. Save room for dessert, can highly recommend the banoffee cheesecake!

We’ve been coming here for years and although it caters for a much older clientele, it has a nice relaxed atmosphere.

I had put a question on Benalmadena forum asking for a nice place to eat on my husbands birthday and this restaurant came up.
It is situated near Paloma park entrance and just above the windmill roundabout.
The service and food were so good we went twice, the two ladies who run this restaurant made us so welcome even remembering it was my husbands birthday and putting a cancel in his dessert thank you ladies x

Tip- you may need to book as it's so popular

We have been eating at El Naranjo for a number of holidays in this area, and have recommended it to friends and family who have had holidays in the area too. We have always had an excellent meal and excellent service, and our friends and family have had the same. Whilst the prices aren’t the cheapest you can find, for what you get they represent excellent value. We don’t normally eat in the same place more than twice in a holiday, but for El Naranjo we have made an exception. We’ve had something different each of the three times we have visited in the last week, and not been disappointed with anything.

John, the owner is a terrific host - very attentive and appreciated as a good customer. Our server, Necole, was very friendly and polite with a smile. We come here to eat regularly whencoming to Spain for over 6 years.
We had the Sticky Ribs special twice this year. Very tasty and LOTS of them. A great value with a bottle of wine included. Their red house wine is excellent and 14 % ! We have tried many other dishes as well and we have always found the taste and value perfect !
Decor is very nice with the lighting a bit low and always a candle on your table. Tasteful ! Hard to find this in the Costa del Sol !!!!
