“Excellent restaurant and we'll definitely be back again - don't miss this restaurant if you're in Almunecar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2011

We went back to this excellent restaurant after our last visit in 2010 and the conclusion is simply - don't miss this excellent place. The atmosphere is still very nice and gentle and while still being element it's also very relaxed. The service is excellent and the knowledge of the personal is very good - ask of a recommendation for wine and you'll find this out. The food has improved and they have now special nights with themes like sea food and tasting menu's there the dishes changes every week and yes we tried it out two Fridays in a row - extremely good and tasty food. It's nit only very taste but also you get a lot for your money - 6 courses for under 20 Euro - unbelievable !

“The best restaurant in Almunecar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

I´ve visited nearly 20 restaurants in Almunecar and the neighbourhood the last years. If you prefer the French cuisine Los Laureles is by far the number one pick in the area. Los Laureles is a hidden gem, approximately 500 meters from the centre of the town.
Excellent menus, the best wine list in town and a friendly – and relaxed – staff are important ingredients in the concept.

Both the á la carte menu, the special seafood menu on Thursdays and Tasting menu on Fridays are of international class. The only restaurant of similar quality I have visited in the area is the one stared La Costa in El Ejido.

“great food at great prices and a peaceful tranquil place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2011

Los Laureles is a hidden gem in the hills above the town of Almunecar its run by Mark and Sandra, primarily its a restaurant and a superb one at that Mark is a great chef and the food delicious and very reasonably priced. Above the restaurant they have three very comfortable, spacious rooms and a studio which they rent out at a very reasonable rate. If you're looking for peace & tranquility this is the place to go. Mark & Sandra are great hosts.

“Average restaurant not bad - not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2011

We tried this restaurant twice. The first time when we arrived the place was fairly quiet. The waitress was having an intense discussion, in English, with a friend about a very personal issue. We stood around uncomfortably for some time and by the time she decided to notice us we decided that we really didn't want to stay and we left. The second time we went with friends. The service was friendly and the food good but nothing really special stands out. This place is a nice change but again nothing special. It is located on a hillside with a scenic view of the car park. There is much better available in Almunecar.

“Best in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2011

Good,imaginative food, Sandra at front of house always welcoming, service good, not too expensive. They even let our daughter have a look around the kitchen. If you're in the area it's definitely worth a visit.
