  1. Hi Stephen.
    We have just enjoyed our first year of owning our Bistro/ Cafe No7 on the Square Benijofar. On one side of us we have the Children’s Dance School and Adults keep fit etc the other side Fratellis Famous Italian restaurant, now under new owners. Then the beauty and hair salon. At the top the Oasis. Some part of the Square gets the Sun all day and the views to the mountains are amazing.

    Hello. Moved from San Luis, Torrevieja to Benijofar last year. Best move I have ever made. Benijofar is a quiet lovely town, where people don’t visit the restaurants in swimwear. Not the cheapest place to by real estate, but on the other hand, that’s maybe why we don’t visit restaurants in swimwear.

  3. Stephen Grange says

    I wonder if it is possible to show a picture of Benijofar Town square rather than benimar in the main review. Benimar is an urbanisation, whereas the plaza de la constitucion, featuring the main square and fountains in the centre of the town. Also it is possible to update the restaurant listings.

    Thank you.
