Our top pick

Banana kitchen in Fuengirola

The first thing you will notice about Banana Kitchen is the freshness and vibrancy of their food, all made by hand and from scratch in their kitchen. The small and friendly team at Banana Kitchen only care about taste, quality and amazing service – three important things they have honed since their opening one year ago.

The dishes at Banana Kitchen have been specially and carefully picked to offer customers the freshest food of the highest quality. From breakfast to lunch, this little restaurant serves up amazing dishes including sourdough bread freshly made on the premises, fluffy scrambled eggs, tapas and starters and light summer salads.

Banana Kitchen caters to all, whether you are vegan, veggie or gluten-free, serving healthy açaí bowls, gluten-free or protein pancakes with fresh fruits and vegan caramel sauce, and crunchy toasted protein bread with toppings of your choice for a breakfast that is certain to start your day off right!

And they don´t serve your typical tapas, try Banana Kitchen´s creamy hummus with freshly baked sourdough naan, grilled vegetables with oozy burrata or their crunchy chicken, Serrano and mint croquettes – to name a few – to tantalise your taste buds.

We all know that with pizza, it´s all about the dough. Banana Kitchen makes a super tasty sourdough base with the freshest toppings around, including blue cheese, fresh pear and walnut, burrata, rocket and fresh mango, spicy salami and jalapeños, or just a classic, but unbeatable, Margherita.

If it´s just refreshments you are looking for, Banana Kitchen has plenty! From classic coffees to speciality teas and lattes, cold-pressed juices and a large range of tonics and soft drinks that you can sip on their bright and sunny terrace.
