Having visited el jardin for many years, El jardin remains the eating out highlight of our holidays. The food is always excellent, with the goulash soup a must. The owner Tomas cannot be more pleasant and always makes a fuss of myself and my family(now on the thurd generation). Being a chef myself I cannot recommend this resturant enough.

Thomas is a great host! We come there already for several years and each time it is great! We were with 5 people and ordered he grilled fish special. Please note that you have to reserve this for larger groups as not all fish is available. When we arrived Thomas had picked an excellent wine for us and we did... More

The El Jardin is near the square and is convenient and pleasant. There is no view and nothing special, but the staff speak good english and are friendly and helpful. Prices are OK and food is fine but nothing special. Extensive menu including pizzas and written in many languages. Lasagne was good and very hot (temperature), sweets were nice. Very... More

Came here with friends for dinner last week and really enjoyed it. Service was lovely, as was the food and wine. I had fillet steak with peppercorn sauce and it was cooked to perfection.

Looked ok from outside but felt grubby once at table. Food very poor, only saving grace it was cheap, you get what you pay for I guess.

After being refered by friends, we decided to give it a try. We had our reservations, coz it looked a bit like these "tourist" restaurants, where they serve greasy food and have no choice but rotiserie chicken or pizza. Boy were we wrong! Probably the best suckling pig I ever had, with proper crackling! The duck in orange sauce was... More

The starters are expensive but the main courses are very cheap. 2 lovely starters, main courses bottle of wine and a beer for 33... More

We and our family have eaten here regularly for 25 years. Tomas is always very welcoming and is now welcoming our grandchildren -" this is third generation, senor !". The service is great and of course, on holiday we're always relaxed and not in a hurry anyway. The food is excellent. Tomas's moulles mariniere are in a sauce I haven't... More
