We were staying about 30 miles away and I was determined to find this lovely restaurant, having seen it on a TV programme. It was just as I expected and the couple who run it were so nice. We had a great evening and the food and the service was excellent. There had been heavy rain the day we went so we could not sit on the terrace, but the restaurant was so cosy and beautifully decorated. If you are near this area please pay them a visit. Many thanks to all the staff.

Whilst planning our trip to the area we had read the existing reviews so when we found ourselves staying in a villa just up the hill from this hotel it was an obvious choice for an evening meal. We were not disappointed, and ended up going there twice. It is definitely not to cheapest place to eat in town but is quite possibly the best. On both occasions the food was excellent. The dining area out on the terrace was spacious and very pretty, although road traffic noise was noticeable but not intrusive. However, it was actually the people that stood out the most; everyone was very friendly and did everything they could to make our visit perfect (On our second evening, the front of house staff were completely different as the owners were away for the day but they were equally good). The overall ambience was refined but relaxed. We had an excellent evening on both occasions and will definitely be returning when we are next in the area.

We visited La Tartana entirely as a result of its excellent Tripadvisor reviews and first impressions were not altogether encouraging given its location alongside a busy main road which separates it from the main town of La Herradura and where parking can present something of a problem.
Having said that, this is where any perceived 'criticism' must end as what the helpful and welcoming owners have managed to create here is something quite special.
On a beautiful mid-September evening we were seated on the upper terrace of what, with its different levels, subtle lighting and carefully managed planting resembles some kind of secret and enchanted garden. Add to this the low level jazz or Spanish guitar music playing gently in the background and you may recognise all the ingredients required to create the oasis of calm which Hotel La Tartana is seemingly seeking to offer.
The service, provided largely by just one experienced and very capable waitress, was excellent and the food both original and superb. At a fraction over eighty euros for a two course meal for two including two rounds of drinks it isn't cheap. Unfortunately quality rarely is and make no mistake, 'quality', in the form of casual but elegant and sophisticated dining is what La Tartana is all about. If the hotel is anything like as good as the restaurant, and most reviews would suggest that it certainly is, then we will be looking for an opportunity to stay there very soon.

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"
