ANDALUCÍA - MALAGA - BENALMÁDENA - VENETIIS RESTAURANT
This restaurant is undoubtedly a great discovery for us in Benalmádena Pueblo. Chef Matteo Manzato mixes Italian and Malagueña cuisine to stunning effect in a carefully designed, atmospheric environment.
It has its own style, mixing great service, excellent food, and fine cuisine.
The presentation of every dish is an ultimate picture everyone would love to share on Instagram.
We had the extremely reasonable tasting menu, un paseo por Ventiis menú desgstación at €29.
To drink, we started with a Fresquito Vino de Tinaja 2020 from Tinaja de Montilla-Moriles, Ricardo de la Torre. Aan almost dry, sherry like wine made from pedro ximenez grapes.
The meal started with,
With extra virgin olive oil from Alhurin Malaga.
Sardina malagueña con sabores venecianos (sardines from Málaga with an Venetian twist with onion sauce, raison sauce and roasted pine nuts.
Next is the tartar de calamar (which is made from the body of the squid) and is the house special and a symbol of Italian-Malagueña cuisine that Matteo Manzato offers..
Then the sauce is added (this is made from the head and tenticles of the squid with tomatoe, pimenton and wine).
We had a red italian wine, Loredan Gasparini Della Casa 20154 to go with the squid.
Ajo blanco entre Málaga y Génova (prawn, basil puree, italian cheese in a cold white garlic and pine nut soup).
Croqueta de ossobuco a la milanesa (ossobuco (which is from the skin of the cow) croqueta and a saffron bun.
Lasagna crujiente de chivo lechal malagueño (fried lasagne pasta, Málaga goat, goats cheese and watercress.
Tira de asado de ternera a la brasa (48 hour slow cooked rib of beef at 45° with potatoes and sweet potatoe purée.
Tiramisú a mi manera (the dessert was a chocolate, coffee, hazelnut crumble with mascapone cheese).
The result is very great mix of Venice and Málaga and works excellently in our opinion.
We ate inside but there is also an outside terrace.
Service was very imformative in explaining the Venice and Málaga mix.
