Great Location

This is a favourite destination for the "Blanket Trip " outings, well worth a visit, get a table in the outdoor covered area and sit back and relax and enjoy the views. Best bet is a sandwich each and a plate of "Fritas" between two.

My boyfriend and I ate 3 meals here in January 2016 (1 breakfast, lunch and supper). Meals were tasty, especially the fish. I felt the two waiters that served us could have been a little more friendly and attentive...maybe it was the language barrier given we speak very little spanish.

Been to this restaurant lots of times both as a couple and with friends and family. If it's summer and you are having lunch get there no later than 1. 30pm as it's gets full very quickly after that especially at weekend's and bank holidays. It's also become busier since the Camino del Ray opened to the public. We have... More

Good service and ok food. The 7,7 km walk starts and ends here also when you use the bus. The entrance to the Camenito is through a tunnel just around the corner.

Restaurant can cope with hundreds of covers offering Andalusian fare at reasonable prices but if on budget the oasis on other side of reservoir is a better choice. Staff at kiosk very helpful and English speaking

We decided to spend the day in El Chorro and the we ate at this restaurant. Very disappointed! The restaurant itself has a great location but the food is utterly gross and the service worse! The prices are outrageous!

This was a pleasant place to have lunch after hiking the Caminito Del Rey. I've heard they can also get you tickets to the Caminito. It's right at the start of the trail. Good food, friendly staff, nice country setting.

We found a table on the upstairs balcony, and on this sunny day the lake was bright turquoise. Food was okay, and our waitress was nice. Best part: park your car, take a hike on the next-door Caminito del Rey. Even if you don't walk all the way to the scary cliff-side suspended ramp, the walk through the woods is... More
