We dined here on our last evening of our visit, and thsi place never disapoints. Attentive service, great atmosphere and always fantastic food. You ALWAYS have to reserve a table here, and you understand why after dining here.

Always a great meal here although found the table to be a bit cramped for 12 of us. Service as always served with a smile by lovely staff and the food up to its usual exceptional standard I am never disappointed when we eat here. I had the pumpkin soup and chicken stuffed with mushrooms and garlic delicious!!

We visited after good reviews, but wished we hadn't bothered! We had to wait 15 minutes for the menu and eventually had to call the waiter to come and take our order. The food arrived promptly but was nothing outstanding. We then had to wait another 20 minutes for the dessert menu and had to call the waiter over again.... More

Saw it on tripadvisor and it merits its high status and positive reviews. In the area for a week and ate two nights here and would recommend it. Starters of Chicken salad and also the peppers in seafood sauce were very good and the main course of Goulash was excellent. The complimentary caramel liqueur was a nice touch at the... More

Long established and respected small restaurant in El Zoco. Great food and choice of wines, though the house wine is always pretty good. Manolo and Rafa very cheery and helpful. Food is European with hints of Spanish flavours. May need to book as it is always busy

Final night in Calahonda and the best place to spend it in here. The Ronda wine was superb and balanced well with our food. Thank you Rafael and Manuel.

My wife and I headed to Meson de Calahonda after reading a couple of reviews on the excellent Cochinillo (suckling pig). Although the restaurant took a little while to find (we were walking from our resort across the street), we were happy to see the quaint dining room and comfortable outside patio. The staff are very welcoming, and an amuse... More
