We just drop in, driving around to look at nice white mountain villages in the near by. It was lunch time and luckily we got the last table. Long cooking of lamb, "Pierna de Cordero Lechal". One og the best ever tasting.

We went for Sunday lunch and sat out on the upstairs terrace with a phenomenal view of the mountains. The food and service matched the location. The food was fresh, local and very well cooked. We will be going back for more!

Amazing food, stupendous location. Really friendly staff - the chef came out to talk to us and accept our praise. This is a must-visit place in the beautiful Genal valley.
