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

Another great little place for a lunch time menu del dia in the Casares road. Typical Spanish grub on meat and potato based side. Lovely starters, I'd recommend the house salad (everything is better with a poached egg on too). Drinks can be pricey but my word they're worth it. I had a strawberry daiquiri which cost be a heady... More

Had not booked a table but they were able to seat us, really busy with families and large groups, did not expect it to be so busy as remote. Watched vultures flying overhead whilst sipping cold white wine. The menu was varied and a good selection of specials, rabbit, suckling pig. We had a starter that was recommended by the... More

Saturday nights experience at dinner on a family special occasion was the worst in Spain. The staff were pre-occupied - unorganised - under pressure - the food was BLAND, agricultural and poorly presented...... the ambiance resembled a motorway cafe with children, pushchairs & roadside view ! The whole experience was extremely disappointing, we wasted a babysitter & a precious night... More

We visited the Venta Garcia twice for lunch on our recent holiday. The food is simple Spanish cooking which tastes delicious and is served by the charming owners. We had the menu del dia at €13 on both visits which included a choice of salads or soups followed by mains such as confit of duck, cod, sea bass and lamb.... More

Very nice setting in the mountains above estepona. Starters were ok, but mains were not good. A bit strange. Service is ok, bit our waiter had a bad night.

Had lunch here with hubby & teenage son this week. Service was slick but not massively friendly although sometimes I do think this is a language barrier thing as once I started speaking Spanish (Spanglish!) the waitress softened a bit. The restaurant setting is lovely. We sat inside but the conservatory was also very nice. The piece de resistance was... More

We were welcomed at a gravel terrace bar, so couldn't resist cocktails whilst we choose from the menu. Choice was good with some interesting specials. When the food was ready we were offered a choice of tables and choose to sit the the airy conservatory. Service was perfect, attentive and friendly, but not in the least pretentious. Starters were excellent,... More

Have eaten there twice in the last week and want to share both the goods and the bad. On the first night I ate with my wife and I must say we raved about the food afterwards, we felt the welcome wasn't particularly warm and friendly like you get in most restaurants in Casares however the food more than made...
