A lovely meal with great views

We sat in the main room of Venta Garcia, with great views over the surrounding countryside. I ate a mango, avocado, salmon and bacon salad and then pork with crackling and apple sauce - a special of the day. Both dishes were just as good as each other, and really were of top quality.

We visit Estepona every 4-6 weeks and always make a reservation at Venta Garcia. The food is superb with an excellent choice of fresh fish specials (usually at least 3) and meat dishes too. The owner is very attentive and the service is always first rate. There is a lovely chill out area for pre dinner cocktails and the restaurant... More

This is a beautifully located roadside restaurant on the road up to Casares, about 7km inland. It has a great picture window overlooking the hills and a terrace for dining in summer. The food is contemporary Spanish and excellent - and the wine list is not only very good, but also very reasonably priced. Great venue for a special occasion.... More

This resturant, situated on the road from Sabinillas to Casares is a real gem. Run by Jesus, the friendly and helpful owner, it produces great food over and over. We have been there quite a few times now and never feel deprived!! It used to be the family home and was converted to the Venta a while ago, and now... More

We have been back many times and have taken friends just so they can experience excellent Spanish food, cooked with passion. It is incredibly good value, The set daily menu has a wide range of hot and cold starters, two choices... More

This venta is in the middle of nowhere in the mountains below Casares. The views are spectacular. It is well worth getting a table by the window overlooking the valley. The menu is very varied and should satisfy most tastes - lamb, rabbit, venison and the usual pork, fish etc. The starters were imaginative and excellent. Service was very efficient... More

I have been here a few times with my boyfriend. We always left happy and with a full stomach. To me the food is something special because it is the only place I can eat venison, quail or rabbit. It is also very good and well done. The menu changes depending on the season and products available during that time... More

Very nice, but not exceptional. Came away feeling could have had a bit more to eat for the money. We were disappointed. It's ok but there are much better in the area
