Recommended to us by others who had recently dined there and we were not disappointed. Delicious meal! We had the set menu and it was very good, lots of dishes included and drinks too. Every course had lots of flavour and served at the right pace. Good value too for the amount and quality of food and service. We would... More

Nice service and a goo selection of traditional Spanish cuisine, The leg of goat was delicious as well as the Cherne and the leg of pigling. Excellent wine selection. A great place!

We had an excellent meal here - fantastic fish and seafood and a great choice. It was very reasonably price for the quality and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for authentic quality foodin or around El Algar

The food demonstrated no cooking skills whatsoever! Food arrived cold and the vegetables had no flavour. Extremely disappointing, definitely will not be recommending this restaurant!

Excellent Fine Dining and Tapas Restaurante. Traditional fine dining restaurante but also offers the possibility of having their "La Barra" menu which is cheaper, same high standards and excellent food. Service is also top notch. Located in El Algar, a bit of a drive if you are coming from the coast towns, but worth it.

We love this restaurant having dined here many many times. It is always very consistent and offers tremendous food and service. The extremely fresh seafood and beautiful steaks are the big features here and we always try to have both! Good wine list also. Very highly recommended!

This is an excellent restaurant for those who would like something a little more upmarket on a visit to Spain. Do not be fooled by the rather low rent location, the interior of the restaurant is beautiful, and the food, drink and service might almost rate a Michelin star.

One of the best typical Spanish food you can imagine, great service and delicious dishes. I can recommend Jose MariaLos Churracos to everyone who wants to get away... More

We visit here every month and following the most recent visit feel that it is just getting better! The atmosphere is great, being typically Spanish and food is always excellent. Good selection of meat & fish dishes together with a great wine list.
