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"...

We went as a party of four for lunch.. Good points. Nice restaurant, intimate, Wonderful host and a lovely welcome.Food beautifully cooked. Minus points. Two of our guests wanted their meat well done, they were advised this would make the meat tough, so they compromised on having the meat medium. Duck and Beef in question. Too underdone for their liking.... More

We went as a small family party of 3 on Xmas Day for lunch (our third visit). Once again we chose the degustation menu which was fantastic...........we started with super fresh French oysters. I love the fact that you know you are going to get amazing fresh, seasonal food cooked and presented wonderfully. We placed our wine choices firmly in... More

Knowing this area for 30 years we always wondered why no adequate restaurant was established. For quality food one had to go either to Antequera or Ronda both over 40KM away. But recently we discovered Restaurant Yerbagüena or actually Hierbabuena, which means mint herbs. A restaurant located at the outskirts of the village of Campillos easy to find, a former... More

Four of us ate there for a lunch and a dinner. We had meat,fish,salads, vegetables and desserts. All were delicious. The owner is charming and incredibly helpful. The wine list is very interesting and prices very fair. The only issue is less than ideal sig-posting which he is aware of and trying to remedy. If in the region, do not... More
