Got to tell you about this!!

Every November (around 8/9/10th) Javier throws a fab party to celebrate another year of YerbaGuena (6 years now). This is now known as 'El Dia del Vaco (the day of the cow)'.

Not open at 18:50 despite their Trip Advisor and Facebook pages opening hours stating it should be open=Don't drive there without first calling to check real opening hours. Obviously they did not open until 20:30, so we had to leave hungry and its not close to other good restaurants.

This must be our eighth visit and it is still the highlight of our visit to Spain. We still have not found a restaurant to compare especially at Javier`s reasonable prices. Four of us had a birthday bash and we asked Javier to select some special wines. The gentle oak aged Alella was brilliant. Pushing the boat out for top... More

Ate this here in May for the third time over the last few years-what a wonderful wonderful place to eat that you would never find unless someone told you about it. We had the tasting menu that was just sensational in both quality of flavour and presentation. Javier is such an amazing host with such a knowledge of wine and... More

Another wonderful, wonderful experience at YerbaGuena. From the moment you arrive you are welcomed by Javier and his team. My first drink was a great little sparkling white wine from Barbadillo - a lovely alternative to cava - and made in Andalucia too! Love it. We enjoyed excellent seasonal dishes prepared by the very talented chef Fran - with interesting... More

Could be the best restaurant we have ever been to. The tasting menu was out of this world and very good value. We went to celebrate a special occasion and returned two days later it was so good. The second time we went the tasting menu was totally different and equally as good, really impressive. Thankyou Javier and Fran

We had a very warm welcome from the owner and all the staff at Yerbaguena. This place is a labour of love and it shows. The food and drinks (sherry, wine, cocktails) were superb. The chargrilled squid and the mushroom and prawn ravioli starters were simply amazing. I cant recommend this restaurant highly enough. Don't miss it! Word of warning:... More

I have reviewed this restaurant twice before and we have visited a few times in the intervening period; there has been absolutely no drop-off in standards which remain excellent. It is in an unexpected location for a fine restaurant, but well worth the trip. Last time we had the 'tasting menu' which contained some superb and intense flavours and which... More

You are unlikely to find this wonderful restaurant unless you know it or it is recommended but boy is it worth finding!! In Javier you have the perfect host who will talk you through all the food and drink options with interest and huge amounts of passion. We went in a party of four and ate from the "tasting menu"...
