“Great for the families”

Reviewed December 3, 2014 

Funky Forest Cafe is unique and caters for families with a mini zoo and loads of toys for the children to play with and on! WE enjoyed it but we didnt have the kids so i guess its more about peace of mind in a child orientated restaurant !

“A wonderful surprise find”

Reviewed September 3, 2014 

Totally lost looking for somewhere to eat and we found this wonderful little place. Funky Forest Cafe is the best place I've seen for young kids in the my ten years of coming to the costa del sol. Play equipment, bouncy castle and bunny feeding too.

“Brilliant Place”

Reviewed August 17, 2014 

This is a very small and relaxed place to have a great breakfast or lunch whilst the kids play on the bouncy castle of pet the rabbits. Unlike a lot of kids playgrounds, the food here is really good and healthy.

“A lovely family cafe!”

Reviewed August 4, 2014 

We visited Funky Forest Cafe after a friends recommendation. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon! My sister loved playing on the equipment and looking at the rabbits. There was also a bouncy castle which she enjoyed. Meanwhile the adults enjoyed a drink and snacks in the seating area. It is such a safe and friendly environment! We will definitely be returning.

Marbella. Family fa fun deletes Legit Reviews? 

What kind of company and website is this? You let companies write fake reviews about themselves and delete the honest and accurate review of a bad experience to warn other patrons about the rude nature of the man owner and marbella family fun deletes it? Because the Funky Forrest Cafe requests it? wow so all your reviews are fake! And you only accept positive fake reviews written by owners like robin at funky Forrest!

I never did a coment before about this amazing place, like all the families that enjoying coming to Funky Forest every week to eat their delicious food with the best service while kids are playing. I was today by coincidence with the "anomimus" guy that wrote the coment before, the staff at Funky F are always really sweet and patience with kids & adults. This people were coming for a week using wifi, plugging their pc and not consuming at all, there is no way that a restaurant can provide all those services if the people that goes there don,t eat & drink there, the waiter said in a really polite way and I was there, there are people that don´t understand the obvius things and after try to hurt the place making this kind of coments, so unfair!! Thanks Funky Forest we are really happy to have you !!

A place for kids and parents 

by: Omar 

During our holiday last summer we ended up with 2 family's at Funky Forest Cafe. The kids loved it for various reasons; the garden with rabbits and swings, the food, the staff, the entertainment etc. To see your kids playful and happy is one good thing, the staff did know how to indulge us as well. Nice beer, wine, food and service made us feel at home and made FF our hangout next summer too!

The place to be! Funky Forest Cafe

by: Suzanne 

Funky Forest is a breath of fresh air on the coast. Healthy food, friendly people, great outdoor covered area which is perfect for when it rains. Great weekly timetable of activities that will meet the requirements of most childrens needs most of which can be attended on a drop in basis. Creative space, healthy tasty food. The whole concept is just what the coast needs. Beautiful Birthday Parties to make your little ones feel special and a great disco for after fantastic for little girls. Great place to go with girlfriends for a coffee, croissant and a chat while your kids entertain themselves. Funky Forest is worth a vist!

Real family fun! 

by: Kristel Schoeman 

Great place to enjoy a glass of wine as parents while kids play and have fun. With 4 children like us, you need sometimes some 'relax'time together, which is great at Funky Forest!. When my children ask again if they can get a rabbit at home, i can tell them now that we go to Funky Forest to see the cutest rabbits ever :-) 
We wish Laura and Robin good luck with their new venture!

Funky Forest for FUN 

by: Marjan la Grand, The Netherlands 

I didn´t know there were a place like this one, Illy coffee, great service and food. Try the veggie burger!! Summer camps, rabits in the beautiful garden, a piece of forest next to the main road. They have been open just for a couple of months, have to go and visit...amazing! And free entrance, the only place we've been able to chat while we are enjoying a meal!

Enjoyed Funky Forest together with my grandchildren, will come back very soon again!!
A really nice place to go to for kids & parents.

Wish Robin and Laura a lot of succes with their enterprise in this time of "crisis".

They are a very brave and enthusiastic young couple, so good luck guys.
