“Wish I was greedy”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

Fantastic menu - would have liked to try so many dishes!
My choices were delicious(as was the homebaked bread and amuse-bouche).... from the squid and noodle starter, through the duck and onto the delicious dessert. Service was very good, setting (in the garden) - lovely, presentation - excellent.
We stayed in the hotel and the room, although small was very good apart from the sound of a cistern filling/running water all night! However, the breakfast was super - again taken in the garden which is such a plus.
All in all a charming "find"

“Certainly the best in town”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

For sophisticated dining this is the best in La Herradura. The terrace is spacious, the service is impeccable and the chef is a star.

“A Memorable Delicious Dining Experience”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

We had the great pleasure of dining at the wonderful La Tartana Restaurant last year whilst on holiday in La Herradura We found the Restaurant as the villa we rented was just behind the Restaurant and each day at 6 o'clock we could smell the most amazing smells wafting across so we decided to investigate the cause. From entering the beautiful setting of the La Tartana, we were welcomed by the very friendly owners Mandy and Jed. Our table was positioned outside in the lovely garden with a great sea view. The table was set with crisp linen, sparkling glasses and flowers.
The menu was diverse in choice and we each selected a different course to taste. We all had a great treat and none were disappointed with our choice of food. The presentation of each course was a visual and tasteful joy. The service was highly efficient whilst not being invasive or fussy. We were also spoiled by meeting the Chef who told us about his inspiration to create wonderfully different dishes.
La Tartarna is a wonderful surprise which we highly recommend to all, and we shall absolutely return again this year.

“Superb food”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

I didn't expect to find really fantastic innovative food in this small seaside town but we did, at La Tartana.
Service was excellent and the food delicious. My starter of squid and prawns with home made black noodles was beyond excellent and all our party of four thought the food was some of the best they had tasted.....from the starters to the home made ice cream. Fantastic!
