Good food and great service ! We had hoped the food would be as good as the hotel itself and it was.

We tried the restaurant at the hacienda la Minerva because friends had raved about a couple of dishes which they found exquisite, we went for an evening meal the restaurant was not busy there were only four other tables taken, both the recommended items were unavailable so we ordered other dishes the only memorable one was Cheese with Quince jelly....

The only drawback is that the dining room is quite loud; it did not help that there was a couple that was in a heated debate (more of a lover's quarrel) during their entire meal which flowed over the the entire dining room. Please people - show some respect; you obviously did not care much about embarrassing yourselves but why... More

The setting is spectacular and the restaurant ambience nice, although a little marred by a large bicycle tour group eating at the same time. We were a little disappointed with the food although I think we ordered one of the less good items. We would return for another go at the menu, maybe for the meats.

Beautifully restored hacienda. Excellent service and a high quality meal at reasonable prices. Pity about the potted music such as you could find in any international hotel in the world. What's wrong with the best of contemporary Spanish music?

We had an excellent lunch at this restaurant located in the remotely located and lovely Hacienda Minerva, situated off the road between Zuheros and Doña Mencia. Really good salmorejo, excellent grilled dorado and an imaginatively prepared solo solomillo de Cerdo. When there was a mixup for one us because of our bad Spanish (steak served well done rather than rare)... More

We have visited this place a few times for lunch, the restaurant being part of a large hotel complex just outside Zuheros. Our first visit was very promising, with good food and good service. Our further visits have been disappointing, once we even had to leave as we could find no one anywhere near the restaurant area (which was open).... More

The Hacienda Minerva is a wonderful building and a great setting for a special meal. The food is good and the wine excellent. Not many vegetarian options but if you ask in advance they are happy to do something for you.

This is a review solely of the restaurant. I suspect other five-star reviews are influenced by the hotel accommodation which we did not see, and the very nice public rooms which we did see - some having spectacular views and being really very nice rooms. One lunch may not be a fair basis on which to judge the place, but... More

Our last day in the area, we decided to enjoy a special meal at Hacienda Minerva. First, the hacienda is absolutely beautifully restored. Situated in an olive farm, the setting couldn't be more beautiful. After a short tour of the library and the taverna, we were led to the dining room. Amazing! The service was excellent as was the food.... More
