I understand that the restaurant is under new ownership, having been closed for some months.
We ate outside each time we were there, sitting on the terrace complete with views right over the Axaquia down to the coast. The restaurant - both outside and in - is decorated with typical Spanish style, is comfortable and reflects its origins as an olive mill.
The food was among the best we ate on our holiday. The menu is short (meaning everything is cooked fresh and not hauled out of the deep freeze into the deep fryer as in so many other places) and it is Spanish. However, they are happy to go off-menu for you as well - our kids had a fussy evening one time we were in there and were pleased to be offered plain grilled chicken. On another night, the kids happily shared a main-course from the menu.
Ajo blanco - a deliciously light and garlicy chilled soup
Albondingas - meatballs in a fragrant almond sauce
Goat cooked with rosemary, garlic and bay
Croquettas made from chicken, chorizo and spinach
Rabo del Toro - a rich and delicious oxtail and red wine braise
We also attended one of their themed evenings - a Moorish night. Despite being a bit more expensive than other meals there, this was good value and a very entertaining evening - the belly dancer alone deserves five stars.
In short, our favourite restaurant in Comares for the food, the situation and the view.
