And for a very cheap price...Fantastic food, good service but the only downside was the small & low quality wine menu, hope they'll change it a bit for the next season. But for the rest keep up the good... read more

This is a tiny restaurant in Zahara, and if you are ever in Zahara this is not to be missed. With only 5 tables you really need to book. Dinner was amazing, my husband and I shared each dish we ordered and the portions were a good size. There are some unique things on the menu, like kangaroo (rare is... More

The 21 is a very small and cute restaurant with a few couple of tables. You need to make a reservation, it is always very full. The host is a Young couple: Ali is originally from Australia and is the cook, Marina is taking care of the guests. They are really doing a professional, sympathic and excellent job, always a...

Everything was perfect! Can´t wait to go back!! Only the wine menu was not very interesting. The food and service was the best. We advise to reserve in advance.

This restaurant was and incredible find - outstanding for food and value. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival and the service was excellent. Menu was a very interesting mix of dishes and all four of us tried something different. We were delighted with the exceptional cooking. Mr Michelin where are you??

I can't cease to be surprised by Zahara and people like Ali and Marina who put so much into their cuisine with only one shift and no more than 10 tables...with an innovative menu that takes advantage of the local produce and more, they provide a solid culinary experience at reasonable prices. I truly hope the business proposition survives. Good... More
