Situated in the popular area of Benavista, opposite the Senator Banus Hotel only 5 minutes from Marbella, you will find Peggotty’s.
Often regarded as the best fish and chip shop & flame grilled restaurant on the coast – and that is spot on in our opinion.
Peggotty’s has stood the test of time, serving top quality British food to customers of all nationalities on the Costa Del Sol since opening its doors in 2005.
It also boasts an impressive client list consisting of Sir Alan Sugar, Harry Redknapp, George Graham, Theo Pathitis, Vinny Samways, Michelle Heaton, Rylan, John Higgins and Bill Bailey. These celebs are definitely onto something!
Marbella Rocks had the pleasure of dining out at Peggotty’s for this Restaurant Review and we too believe its well-earned reputation!
On arrival we were greeted by owner Costa and his friendly team and felt immediately at home. The restaurant itself is very modern with a black, white and electric blue theme running throughout, beautiful artwork on the walls and a choice of al fresco or indoor dining. There is also ample parking outside the restaurant reserved solely for Peggotty’s customers.
The menu is also impressive, with something for everyone on the list. As well as a wide choice of fish, flame grilled chicken, pies and sausages (being British this was the authentic dishes we had been missing!) there is also a great selection of burgers, ribs and sides.
Our tasters opted for the classic Cod and Chips with British sides of mushy peas and a pickled gherkin! The portion was very generous and the batter fluffy yet crispy. The fish was so fresh and literally flaked away when we were eating it a sure sign of good cooking and quality produce.
Next up, on our attentive waitresses recommendation, we went for the authentic Southern Fried Chicken which consisted of a selection of succulent chicken wing, leg and breast portions with lots of meat on the bone and a delicious crispy coating. (Our lengthy trips to KFC in La Canada is halved now we know about Peggotty’s!) The chicken came with coleslaw and chips but we opted for curry sauce and gravy as extra sides for dipping – both were welcome additions.
And you heard it here first – the chips at Pegotty’s are to die for, made from the best potatoes cooked in a very unique way – you will definitely be back for more.
The portions are quite large at Peggotty’s so for the less hungry customer they have introduced smaller portions for even better value, both on takeaways and restaurant meals. This also leaves more room to try some of the sinful but delicious desserts, such as the American Rockslide Brownie served with vanilla ice-cream or classic Banana Fritters, Apple Pie or Peach Melba all served with ice-cream.
Owner Costa attributes the restaurants ongoing success to its passion for serving good food:
“Our secret is that we have many simple things which are all done to perfection. With more than 35 years experience, myself, my wife Nikki and my daughter Xanthe, say that it is passion and hands-on dedication that drive Peggotty’s top class reputation.” Costa has been in the business in England since 1977.
As a family run restaurant it is no surprise kids are welcome. Peggotty’s has catered for its little customers offering a children’s menu for around €5 including ice-cream.
Plus, there are great adult meal deals including a 3 course menu for only €12.95 and a Small Fish & Chip Special with Tartare Sauce and Lemon
for only €9.95, not that you need another excuse to go! The wine here is good too
and like the prices – extremely affordable, so a trip to Peggotty’s won’t break the bank and a meal for a family of 4 can stand you in under €50.
So in summary, Peggotty’s is a beautifully designed family restaurant catering for small or large parties, families and even couples with its candlelit tables. Open Monday to Saturday from 6pm – 11pm.
We wholeheartedly recommend and our tasters hav
e been back twice since writing the review so you know you’re onto a good thing! As its slogan reads “Peggoty’s is where passion and simplicity create perfection.” Find out for yourself.
Pegotty’s is located in Benavista, Exit Km.168 (opposite the Senator Banus Spa Hotel) Urbanisation El Pilar, Edificio Benapilar Local.8-10, Estepona.
