Ate here last Sunday and chose from the Bistro Menu - it was excellent but boy were we full at the end of lunch. Decided to go again today (Saturday) with some friends but to stay with the 5 tapas menu. Great choice. The tapas were again first class, great variety, great tastes and great value (16 euros each) -... More

Who would have thought it--such an unassuming facade in a little village, but within dwells culinary know-how capable of eclipsing many a star. I took a three-course dinner. First came the daily special, a marvelous chicken noodle soup with egg; neither curry nor cream was anywhere in sight, fancy that--it nearly qualified as a time machine. The next course consisted...

I was here with my family during Christmas time and was extremely pleased that near our new home in Spain is such a little village restaurant with big ambitious food on the menu. They have a menu de la dia for 16 euros and it has quite a few little courses like tastings which are full of pairings and surprises... More

I discovered this restaurant when I first moved here. That was 3 years ago. I have tried to visit at least once a week. The menu del dia is always great. Pablo and Tere are always happy to see us even when we run into each other in town. All in all the food tastes great, presentation is very pleasing... More

We have frequented this restaurant a few times now and have never been disappointed. The staff are friendly and the food is fantastic. The flavours are so good. Last time we ended up with profiteroles which were amazing, oozing with cream and had a light caramel sauce instead of chocolate, the choux pastry was so light, very moreish!! It is... More

We visit the Temple quite often as it is one of our "local" restaurants. Today was exceptional. My wife and I both had the Veal Cheeks. Not Veal but thats the translation. Excellent tasty and moist. Cooked to perfection. We can always recommend this restaurant for its ambience, good food, pleasant service and great value for money.

Surprised to find The Temple open as lots of the restaurants are closed on a Monday. We think it was the fact it was Fiestas in the village.However, the normal daily menu wasn't available so we had to choose from a special menu and the price varied according to what you had. Pork at 18Euros, fish at 16Euros and pasta... More
