It seemed like nice restaurant with friendly staff. Our starters, bruchetta and pil pil prawns were ok. They didn't came same time to us. But with the mains my pizza came much earlier than my fiancee's cod. She said her food was good, not excellent, but my pepperoni pizza was just awful. Very, very fatty. I haven't seen so greasy...

We were thrilled to see this little gem of a restaurant was thriving during our recent stay in Benalmadena as it really deserves its customers. Food is fantastic, freshly prepared to order using fresh ingredients with lovely staff. We will always return

This is our favourite restaurant in Benalmadena by far. We are staying near Calahonda this holiday but made the trip to eat here twice this week. Food is top notch, staff are so friendly and can't do enough to please. Lovely little family run place, just off the main street but definitely worth a visit. Highly recommend.

Rarely do we visit restaurants which tick several boxes, a good menu, good wine, good food, good service and finally a good passion for the food they cook. Well, here at Carnaval, they cover all of these areas. There is something endearing about carnival which is hard to pin point; although any of the above will cover it. It's a... More

A massive menu which was slightly worrying thinking of Ramsays kitchen nightmares but it turned out to be a god send with our fussy eaters. Everything tasted fresh and no grumbles on both visits from our party of 6
