I always think that the mark of a good restaurant is how many locals eat at it. One of the reasons I decided to try El Cortijillo is because it was often full of Spanish families eating Spanish food together. I ate here twice, the first time I had a mix Spanish starters / tapas which my wife and I shared with my little boy who is 18 months. Unfortunately we couldn't get our little girl to try anything but she is 3 and is a bit funny about what she eats. Nothing disappointed and it was great to try new things, the service was exceptional and the fish was as fresh as you get. The second time we went we opted for the mixed Paella and told my little girl it was chicken and rice and this did the trick and she loved it. I have eaten Paella's all over Spain and I cook them at home but this is probably the best one I have ever had, rich in flavor and consistency, again great fresh ingredients, quite simply lip smackingly good. The wine menu is excellent and the service can not be faulted. This is a not to miss restaurant.

Second time in as many years we've found ourselves here. Found it by accident in 2012 and came straight back in 2013. Great tapas and good service surrounded by a relaxed and laid back atmosphere in the middle of the square. I recommend this place highly.

We had a very good lunch menu and the star was the whole sole for the main course. Nice veg, well cooked fish, perfect flan for afters - not overly sweet. We had a nice lazy lunch on their covered patio. We'd go back if we found ourselves there again.

Up a side street just off the promenade to the west side of the resort practically opposite the Mercadona supermarket.
The menu del dia at 10.80 euros was phenomenal. We were given an extra starter to share of chicken curry with sliced potatoes and peppers-very tasty. Some people we noticed were given a paella to share.
Then my husband had a massive salad with tuna, egg, avocado, asparagus, palm hearts along with the usual things. I had macaroni bolognese, once again a huge portion and one of the tastiest I have ever had.
Then to the mains of Hake with potatoes, peas & carrots, and Rosado with potatoes in a tomato sauce.
Finally a choice of desserts and a choice of drink. Needless to say we couldn't manage to eat the bread rolls!
The waitress was very pleasant and helpful and appreciated my attempts at Spanish.
Will definitely go again when we visit Almunecar.
