The only wood burning oven in BENAHAVIS
In a warm, welcoming & relaxing environment.

A unique good food experience, in a relaxed and pleasant environment.


One of the most important improvements made by the new owners was to build an exact replica of an authentic burning oven.


The exact shape, construction and materials used are crucial to creating this very special oven in order to obtain the possible level of cooking and flavours.


No, not just another pizza oven, although you get a perfect pizza as they do the Naples, this oven requires the skill of a master chef to get the best out of anything cooked in it. The flavour is quite unique.

There is a substantial menu and everthing, except perhaps the salads and the pastas, is cooked in the oven. Steaks, Chicken, Lambs, Piglet and yes Fish. As a matter of fact the fish is exceptionally good.


Should anyone prefer fried or steamed or otherwise prepard food, naturally the chef is always willing to please.


Of course the freshness and quality of the food are most inportant but what is also important is the excellent service and the welcoming and relaxing atmosphere that you will experience at EL CORDERO.


You really need to try this eatery and as a family run bisiness it is not expensive but worth every penny.

Try the steaks, the lambs and the rest like you never tasted before.

Open everyday from 12.00 to 24.00
