I was staying in the hotel, so easy stop. Very good quality food, and professional staff. The menu suits all tastes, and varying orders was not at all frowned upon.

Turned up after a long walk without a booking but the lady at the front of house was helpful and found us a lovely table outside - lovely food and ambiance. Lots of money in evidence say at the other tables and a good mix of Spanish and English. The only grumble was a bill which included two items we... More

A wonderful lunch with friends, lots of choice. Lots of character and excellent food next to the old mill stream. Combined with a visit to the Cueva del Gato which is close by made a memorable day.

We enjoyed two dinners and two breakfasts at this restaurant. One evening we sampled the five course "taster menu" with suitably selected local wines and the other from the al-a-carte menu. Difficult to add superlatives over what others have said. Probably the best accolade we could apply is that we will definitely eat here again!
