Very generous servings of tasty meals including melt in your mouth Iberian pork and a lamb dish that was so tender and very filling. Also a generous serving of bread with a selection of sausages was brought out to start. Service was friendly and helpful and complementary brandy liqueurs were a very welcome addition to our coffees which were also... More

Had an evening meal here. The proprietors were friendly, the menu basic and prices reasonable. The food was quite satisfactory, but definitely not gourmet! OK if you just want something to eat reasonably quickly.

This restaurant was recommended to my wife and myself by a old lady from the village who had showed us the local church. As you walk in to Meson El Corcho, you are met by an iron chain blocking your way in. The waiter lifted this and led us into a huge hall, similar to an Oxbridge college dining room.... More

You will find Meson El Corcho right in the centre of Alajar. Although the staff is friendly, the portions generous and the bar area nice, the restaurant is too much of a tourist trap. Overflowing with decorations on the wall, a large open fire, and food that is not very exciting. And pricey I'm afraid to say. Not recommended.

Typical Spanish restaurant with a reasonable range of dishes available. Sit outside and watch village life as you drink and eat.

I liked the food and the wine. It was cheap and friendly and really in the center of the town and closely collected with the trees !!

Great location in the middle of Alajar. Good for a drink, for tapas and for an evening meal. We stayed in Alajar for a few nights on a walking holiday in the Sierra de Aracena. By the time we left we felt like old friends of the owner who must have one of the sunniest smiles in the whole of... More

We struggled to find places to eat at mid-day and found this delightful restaurant in the main square. We could have spent hours there watching people and the scenery. The chorizo, eggs and fries were superb. Coupled with some wine made for a wonderful mid-afternoon snack.
