We ate here last year, Rafael made us feel so welcome we returned this year on the first day of our holiday, it was also our Sons birthday, we were greeted like old friends, they had even made a cake!! Food was excellent as always! Make this your first stop for excellent food and first class service.

Perfect Spanish style food just like in the old days. Enormous plates. We had gambas pil pil and tapas for starters. As main course we had filet of sole, entrecote and the suckling pig. Everything very well prepared and very tasty. Best dinner around.

Messon de Calahonda is located in the El Zoco Shopping Centre. We decided to eat inside rather than on the Plazza outside. It is like an oasis. When you enter it from the busy Restaurant Plaza it is a traditional Spanish Restauarnt with a rustic style personality and character all of its own. We had dinner there last night. Both... More
