This was not our first visit to Venta Garcia but as on previous occasions, despite the somewhat torturous journey, the welcome and the quality of service and food more than compensate for the remote location. In just a few years the proprietors have transformed the appearance and ambience of this restaurant. The quality of the food along with the panoramic... More

Didn't start off well as there is no written menu. So, you have to try to understand what the waiter is saying whilst he goes through the menu at breakneck speed. We found the service fine whilst there was one or two people in the restaurant, but non existent once the restaurant started to fill. The duck confit was not... More

Stopped here for lunch today having been recommended by friends - so glad we did, it was really excellent. Nice old style Spanish courtyard as you go in, but really nice modern glass fronted restaurant to eat in. The food was so fresh, and good specials recommendations, the turbot & Lengaudo were really top notch. Nice drink on the house... More

My wife and I really rate this venta with its stunning views and freshly cooked food. The owners make one feel at home with attentive service. The menu is varied but not too extensive, and the kitchen delivers taste and flavour every time. A lovely place to eat!

My husband and I work for a long haul airline, and as such have eaten in many beautiful places around the world. The fact that Venta Garcia remains one of our favourite places in the world says it all. Stylish, friendly and in a beautiful location with food to die for (the lamb never disappoints!) - you will love this... More

Went recently for a group lunch, really enjoyed the ambiance of the place and although it was not perfect I really loved the place and would definitely go back again. Modern feel to the place with super views of the surrounding countryside.I had chefs salad which I enjoyed and a duck main course which was a tad sparse but I... More

Hidden away up in the hills at Casares on the Costa del Sol is this little gem. We visited with friends and had a very enjoyable experience at a reasonable cost. On arrival you can enjoy the cocktail of your choice in the garden area whilst browsing an extensive menu. We were then taken through to the restaurant and shown... More

Booked with a group.Menu was shouted out to us(by owner?)No written menu to peruse.Service chaotic.Starter o.k.Main of cod consisted of two fish finger sized pieces,tasteless frozen veg and chips.Chocolate brownie was crispy like meringue.Lovely location,but as this is our second disappointing visit (we wanted to give them the benefit of doubt) we won`t be going again.

Went here 2 years ago and it was the best meal we had while on holiday, so when in Estepona this year we were really looking forward to it. We arrived without a booking so on arrival the guy told us to have some drinks while they sorted us a table, 5 minutes he said it would take. Me, my... More

We've been three times previously and brought friends especially to enjoy the food and ambiance. Unfortunately it was too noisy, too cold, too pressurised to have a pre dinner cocktail and sadly very much lacking the attentiveness that's part of Venta Garcia's charm. It was school dinner food, meat or fish with the same vegetables, no attention to detail, too... More
