The food was of excellent quality and the quantities were just right. You could eat inside or as we did, outside next to the mountain stream.

I was staying in the hotel so I had a chance to sample a range of dishes, and I thoroughly enjoyed everything. Each dinner started off with a complimentary 'amuse bouche' which was delightful. There's a wide variety from beef to pork to multiple types of fish. The smoked cod salad and the sizzling garlic prawns were particularly memorable starters. I truly enjoyed all the main courses I had--I'd happily have any of them again. It was all so fresh and flavorful; perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. They use local ingredients as much as they can. I loved the service--unobtrusive and well-timed. All my questions were answered in detail by our waiter who clearly knew each dish on the menu. (The menu is in both English and Spanish, which is a huge help.) The setting next to the river was idyllic, so it really checks all the boxes: lovely food, excellent service, and a beautiful setting.

Fine dining, local ingredients, Andalucian dishes- all delicious and well presented. Booking essential on weekend lunchtimes as this is a popular place for locals.

We went there with a group of over 50 people on a car rally to have lunch. We were offered quite a few choices of appetizers, main courses and desserts a couple of weeks before the event to choose from. This made the service of our large group very efficient. The setting in the garden under the big trees is wonderful. It was a hot day, but the place is in the shade. A few of us even jumped in the fairly big pool. We did not stay at the hotel this time, but the restaurant was wonderful, great service and well managed. Many of us took brochures with the intention to come back and then maybe even book a hotel room.
