Not to go to this truly excellent, unique restaurant which just brims atmosphere, and professional but warm personal service ,when in Gaucin is to miss one of those lifetime opportunities.

The views alone would make it fantastic but when you add all the other pluses: Quality of food, service and above all warmth of welcome from the host Luis and sometimes Jesus and the wonderful staff members it really does make it to the top of the list of Gaucin experiences and should really be included in the list of 'places to go before you die'! Add on great bedrooms - again with those views - and you are, well we were, in seventh heaven. And yes, we shall be going back - again!

Like others here it seems, we didn't visit Le Fructuosa because of the lack of reviews, and the pictures of the dark interior. That turned out to be a mistake. We;re just back from a stay in Gaucin and are sorry we didn't discover this place earlier. The restaurant has to-date been the 'hotel restaurant' and the chef was Luis, one of the guys who run the hotel. Also, the restaurant was not open except in the summer months. They have just opened on the June 4th this year. We ate there last Thursday and it was superb. They have a new young chef - see their website - who has worked at some great restaurants in Spain and the food was top class. In the summer they move all the tables out of the inside onto a nice lantern-lit terrace. It only has about 6 tables so you have to book. I've added a few photos of the confit of suckling pig, and the cod with alioli foam (I know...). Well worth the visit and one we'll go back to.

We ate in this charming restaurant several times and enjoyed very good food with good service in a nice setting (wine press included). The owner and the chef were delightful. The "menu degustacion" with featuring a number of set courses was very good. The wine selection was primarily local (Spanish vineyard areas) which we enjoyed with reasonable prices. We will visit there again.
