Caserio San Benito, Fine Restaurant and Museum in a XVII Century Manor House

By Jjgn @TravAroundSpain
Caserio San Benito came up in 1991, although the project of restoration of the “cortijo” (typical Andalusian countryside manor house) started 20 years before. Since then, it has been a resounding success and now Caserio San Benito has become one of the most prestigious restaurants in Malaga province. This comes along with both a creative and traditional menu where quality is a standard. Rice with rabbit, Salmorejo, Crumbs, and porridge with fried bread and brown Honey, are good examples.

The Restaurant
At the entrance of the restaurant, a patio with a stone fountain leads us to the very warm atmosphere inside the house. This is a typical Andalusian countryside house, decorated with XVIII century antiquities. The house has his charm from the whitewashed walls, and the use of wood and lights, thus achieving a warm and peaceful atmosphere. A big chimney is the heart of the house.
