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

By Jjgn
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.
