Excellent sunday lunch, menu had a great choice of lovely food. Presentation on plates has been given a great deal of thought also the products that have been used. The grounds are fabulous for relaxing in after the meal.

Yet again, a fabulous night at Casa Joya. It was so good to see Mary and James back doing what they do best, welcoming visitors to their fabulous home / business, sourcing a wide variety of foods (James, here, in the middle of nowhere where do you find all your ingredients?) all cooked to perfection. The almond blossom was just... More

James is an absolute gem of culinary expertise in a desert of class restaurants. He went that extra mile without hesitation to satisfy my finicky grandchildren's modern tastes. I would without hesitation recommend Casa Joya to other family groups

Why do I love Casa Joya so much ? If you are looking for a 5 star, clinical, cold, business style hotel, then Casa Joya is not for you. It is a haven of peace. The silence so dense you can hear the ants chattering. The perfume of the roses transports you back to your grandmothers garden. The wonderful eclectic... More

I used Casa Joya as my base when house hunting around Velez Rubio. As I was driving there I cursed myself for booking somewhere out in the country, but my first mouthful of food made all my concerns vanish! If you like food you will like this place. The only problem I had was making a choice from the menu,... More

Yet again a fabulous lunch. Mine hosts James and Mary always pull out all the stops. The best food in Almeria well worth the journey but why not stay the night. Quirky rooms, reasonably priced with a fantastic breakfast. Love it.

This restaurant and inn is located far off the beaten track - but take time to seek it out if you are near. My sister and brother-in-law have raved about this restaurant for years and finally I had a chance to sample it last summer. We went as a party of five for lunch. The bar area is cool and... More
