I’m lucky enough to have spent a few holidays in the Vinuela region of Andalucía over the last couple of years and have recently taken to visiting this restaurant as it is within walking distance of where we stay. Given the reviews on this site are a bit of a mixed bag I was a bit concerned about what we would find; however can say with confidence that we’ve not been disappointed.
The restaurant itself is an old-world affair with large iron chandeliers in the main section and a balcony area with a charming view of Lake Vinuela and Mount Maroma with the lights shining from the numerous white wash villages on the mountain setting the night time atmosphere.
The food is a traditional charcoal grill affair, quite healthy and large portions. A reasonably priced Spanish wine list completes the experience and all things being equal there are worse ways to spend an evening in the area.
We are looking forward to coming back to Vinuela in a few months; no doubt Restaurante El Pantano will see us back again too.
