As the name suggests there is a fabulous view from this restaurant. Only bought a drink so cannot comment on the food, though it did look and smell very nice. It worth a visit for the stunning view.

Wondering whats on the end of the Caminito? Nothing! Its good that the bus brings you back to the parkingplace, cause there you find food and beverage. Its honest and spanish. If you wantend to know portions, take care they are large.

How this place can be number one in the area is a total mystery to me. It is a fantastic situation overlooking the beautiful turquoise lakes but has no other discernible charms. There is a smaller outside seating area with parasols and absolutely enormous covered...More
