Spanish and Tapas
A meal at los Abanicos is a must for everyone that visits Marbella. It is situated in Benahavis, which is a small town around 20 minutes drive into the mountains from Marbella and Puerto Banus.
Los Abanicos provides real atmosphere for a superb meal. The restaurant's 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 we all 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 it's definitely worth the wait.
The town is typically Spanish and lovely to stroll around before and after your meal just soaking up the traditional village atmosphere. A word to the wise, maybe share the starters, the portion sizes are rather massive!
