About the restaurant La Cocina

About

Located in Benahavis, a beautiful, tranquil, whitewashed village in the mountains of Andalucia, within a short drive of Marbella and Puerto Banus.

Csaba (pronounced Shabba) and his wife Marta opened La Cocina Restaurant in April 2009, and are very proud to offer dishes with locally sourced fresh ingredients, from seafood to steak to sumptuous homemade desserts – a menu with something for everyone!

Comfortable and friendly ambiance with great quality food at a reasonable price.

Pleasant reception, few diners at start but more arrived later
We shared a starter which took 30 mins to arrive. No real problem as this was a holiday visit in pleasant location
Another 30+ minutes for main. The drinks and bread were promptly served
Food ok but it appeared that the chef was not well organised and other diners were looking uncomfortable
I did mention this to the manager/owner who suggested that the chef was new and learning
We didn't stay for dessert or coffee and will not return

The suckling pig with crackling was to die for, along with the mash. We had a few tempura prawns to share amongst the four of us and what with those and the pork, we were very full. It is a lovely little place overlooking a typical Spanish street. The service was great and really friendly, it was also great to get the discount from booking online. One tiny thing, not much veg with the main course, you need to order a side of veg if you like them with your meal. Other than that, worth a visit.

Haven't been to this restaurant for over a year but booked as it was offering 30% off via The Fork. Unfortunately the discount was not offered despite reminding the waitress on arrival that we'd booked via The Fork and when the bill arrived, had to call her back to remind her that we should get 30% but she wouldn't give that so gave 10% instead. The deal stated we had to have one starter or desert per-diner - we had one starter, 2 mains, one desert so we fulfilled the criteria.

The restaurant was empty - we were the only diners - it lacked any atmosphere unfortunately.

The food was OK but not great.

Very disappointing experience - won't go back as a result of the refusal to allow the discount.
