Beautiful setting under the hanging vines as the sun set. We had the taster menu with the sommelier's recommended wines. First course was finely chopped smoked meat in strawberry foam - sounds awful but it was gorgeous. Memorable amoungst the following courses were the risotto, beef with fois gras & a desert of a melt in the mouth mini caramel... More

We have eaten at this hotel a few times before on previous holidays; our son got married at the hotel, so we had some idea of what to expect. This was a special occasion (my birthday, and our anniversary), so we were looking forward to enjoying the whole evening. The location of the veranda at the rear of the hotel,... More

We have been looking forward to have dinner in La Veranda again, having wonderful memories of dinner in this restaurant. When I asked if Chef Victor Taborda was still Chef in La Veranda, I was told that he was no longer working there, we were very disappointed. On the website of the hotel the name of Chef Taborda is still... More

As a regular visitor to Spain I was intrigued to experience at first hand the much vaunted ' La Veranda' restaurant which is part of the Villa Padierna Palace near Benahavis. This is the hotel where the First Lady ( Michelle Obama ) stayed on her recent visit to Europe. Having carried out a quick reconnoitre of the hotel and... More

I can understand why Michelle Obama stayed here last Summer its beautiful here. If you like to eat and drink in beautiful surroundings this is the place, from the terrace you look over the manicured golf course and Lake, the lounges are luxurious and the eye for detail is truly amazing. The reception and Atrium are are circuled by beautiful... More

Unfortunately we went on the evening when there was an important charitable gala at the hotel hosted by Antonio Banderas and Eva Longoria and so the tasting menu was not available and the service was stretched. Nevertheless the food was well-cooked, although cannot compare with the menu degustación when the chef Victor Taborda is in charge. Victor is a disciple... More

One of the best food experiences I have had for years. Way better than many of the over priced Michelin star restaurants in London. Fantastic setting, attentive staff, relaxing surroundings. Amazing food. Go there. You won't be disappointed.
