We have been to the restaurant and the tapas bar many times and have never had a bad meal. The menu of the day is great value and my husband loves the steak on the stone and the fish soup. It is worth booking as always busy. Antonio is always pleasant and helpful. Definitely worth a visit

Always good food - service - value. You wont be disappointed with either the restaurant or the tapas bar. Never disappoints. The boss Antonio is a perfectionist which comes across when experiencing this lovely establishment.

We have been part of the El Rio family for over 20 years and throughout that time we must have visited Antonio's restaurant over 30 times and we have never been disappointed. Outstanding service, first class food and great value for money. The chateaubriand is delicious and some years ago we asked if he could arrange a seafood platter for... More

The 'del Dia' menu is €12.95 and is excellent value for starter, dinner and dessert. Extensive a la carte menu offers fish/duck/chicken/pastas and steaks. The steak on the stone is very good, and the... More

Another visit to El Rio and another enjoyable dinner with friends. The food and service were excellent. I tried the conejo this time and it was very good. Other favorites include the duck or the steak on the stone. Antonio and his staff always provide the best service. I hope to return in the Spring.
