Amigos Restaurant and Roof Terrace, Old Town, Benidorm - Roof Terrace - Now Open 7 Nights a Week until October 30th 2016.
Our second season in the new premises is coming to an end and has truly exceeded any expectations we had when handing over the 500 euro deposit to the owner take down the "for rent" sign.
In the off season 2015/2016 we planned to reform a few things.
We made aesthetic changes to the toilets and ground floor area in addition to replacing the tables, chairs and lighting on the roof and it seems to have worked.
In season one we were serving between 20 and 40 guests 6 nights a week and now, in season two we have doubled that number to 40 - 60 guests every night 7 nights a week.
For our third season we are planning to reform and modernise the kitchen so that we can handle 70 - 90 guests per night during the busy months of 2017.
With an incredible young head chef and a sous chef we now have the confidence to add new dishes to the menu and weekly specials, we are even considering opening for Sunday lunch during the winter months but that's to be confirmed at a later date.
We have now completed the Christmas Menu which is being served 7pm on Saturday 24th December (Christmas Eve) and at both 2pm and 7pm on Sunday 25th December (Christmas Day).
What a journey the past 6 years has been. Just 2 years ago in January 2014 our UK business was failing badly and I was sitting in the bank asking how long they would give me before starting repossession proceedings on my house if I didn't pay the mortgage and Linda was crying as I asked the VAT inspector to give me an extra month to pay a VAT bill with money we had never even received from customers.
Since then we have worked tirelessly to reform this old classic 3 storey house, pizzeria/tapas bar into a chic and modern restaurant and, it's not finished yet. In January 2017 we plan to repaint all 3 floors, completely reform the kitchen so it "flows" better and possibly add a sliding roof onto the roof terrace. (although I think that's a step too far this year).
We still want to have live music so we will hopefully add an up to date music system and also a new POS system to increase efficiency.
We have also been close to signing deals on two new premises but both times we got cold feet and decided to wait until we knew for sure it was the right thing to do, however, we are still looking for our second restaurant.
Although we only officially open in the evenings, we will always open in the day for private parties, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and celebrations for 10* or more people. Call 07951 776 435.
