Even though it's nothing special, we almost always have a quick stop at El Tilo, for a simple lunch, such as a "sandwich vegetal" or in the evening for a pre-dinner drink. The mixers are relatively cheap, so it makes sense to have a drink or two at the bar with some tapas. If you're lucky enough to have the... More

Nice little restaurant with great patio located in the middle of Capileira. Portion size are huge and can probably be shared for people with less appetite. The grilled meats are good their meatball specialties is also interesting. Prices are fair and service is good.

The steaks weren't too bad (after we fed the gristle to a begging dog) but, the whole experience was below average. Everything seemed tired & dusty from the sticky, dirty chairs to the lacklustre service. Would not recommend.

Good food and nice setting in the church square. Service good at first and then ceased to exist. Waited an hour for dessert and the bill

Stopped here for drink and received lovely complimentary tapas. The young waiter appeared to be a recent addition to staffing and we found him to be very nice indeed and he smiled a lot :)

We stopped here for a drink and lunch. The waiter pros silly spoke no English and our Spanish was very limited. But the surly attitude of the unsmiling young waiter was very off putting. Food was OK

Having spent the previous night dining in the village and thoroughly enjoying the food on offer, we decided to return the following day for lunch. We ate inside as it was a little windy. We ordered paella and lamb chops which, both were made to order. We were advised there was a 40 min wait which was fine as we... More
