“Our favourite restaurant in Comares”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

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.
Highlights included:
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.

Special winter menu which is really lovely. We went with a group of friends and had a really special evening. The food is gorgeous, wines are really good, excellent service and beautiful surroundings.

“Beautiful views and great fun”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Had dinner there twice in May. Food was nice and fairly reasonable. The real fun here is the entertainment. I dont think I have spent two funnier or more surreal (in a good way!) nights. Nenno taught everyone to Dance, even left footed people. It was good fun in a beautiful location.

“Such Fun!”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

We enjoyed 2 wonderful meals at el molin de los abuelos! Nenno & Ivan are your wonderful hosts, very outgoing, creative, lovely guys who know how to look after their customers. Ivan is a wonderful dancer & will invite you to join him...if you would like. The food was beautifully presented, totally delicious & good value.
The restaurant is very tastefully decorated with lots of character, lots of things to interest you. Fantastic views from the inside restaurant & the terrace.
If we go back to this area of Spain, we'll definitely be returning to el molino de los abuelos!
