Good food

There is not a huge selection of dishes but the ones I had were very good. There is a choice of tapas, ½ ration or full meals.

We ate here on the back of trip advisor reviews and weren't disappointed! I am vegetarian and had goats cheese with honey and nuts which was beautiful! The portions were quite big so don't order too much!! The food was simple but good and would definitely go back.

returned to this place after 3 years (seems to have changed owner in the meantime, but same cook?) and, hate to say so, was a bit disappointed. the atmosphere is still the same: no nonsense, works of art all over the place. we had a few tapas and maybe that was not the best choice. it all seemed a bit...

Me and my partner went there on the recommendation of our hotel. It's not on the menu but if you ask them for fajitas verduras instead of the fajitas pollo they willingly did this for us. My partner told me the fajitas pollo was also very tasty. The other veggie option is a veggie burger which I didn't try. The... More

A friendly welcome in this small bar serving drinks, tapas and meals. A good number of tables for people to sit at in the front of the bar are in a cosy spot near the back (if its open). The food is of high quality and super value for money. A cosy subdued atmosphere with some great artwork displayed on... More

We were told that there was only one restaurant open in Alora on Monday evenings and the Casa de Correos was it. Fairly small and simply furnished it was of course busy and almost full.We had four starters off the main menu between the two of us. These were cooked goats cheese with honey, a skewer of prawns with rice... More

We ate here every day of our holiday (except Sunday, because it was closed). We tried everything from the tapas to the full menu and everything was really well cooked and presented. Alberto, who runs the place, was friendly and we managed to have several conversations, with a bit of Spanish, a bit of English and a bit of sign... More

This modest restaurant is worth your visit. Alberto and another partner in charge of the cuisine run the place. Tapas are of superb quality and in a wide variety all very tasteful and delicious. The restaurant is simple but adequate. Located in the old post office from there the name Casa de Correos. The village of Alora is typically Spanish... More

we were staying just outside alora but had seen the reviews so took a drive into the town to see for ourselves. Once we had found it what a fantastic little gem it is. Yes the front is not so grand but inside is where it counts.. We were a party of ten including 6 children of various ages. The... More
