We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a family we met by the pool in our complex - and what a treat it was!! Hardly a tourist in sight and full of Spaniards which is always a good sign. The restaurant was nicely cooled - a great respite from the fierce August heat - and the service was... More

Remembered as the 19th Hole many years ago, inconspicuous roadside restaurant which is bigger and better than it looks from the outside and well worth turning round if you go past it and taking the time to eat there. The menu contains many items which have been long forgotten on this coast - black pudding, sweet breads etc. The pork... More

One needed to study the diverse menu for some minutes before selecting from the many temptations, including the 9 Chef’s specialities Eventually our party of four choose for starters: Burgos Black pudding, Mushrooms in Sauce, and for...

Just had Sunday lunch at this wonderful restaurant. Suckling pig cooked to perfection for both of us. We were advised not to have a starter as the portion of all courses are large and it could be a bit much. Choose the recommended red wine and it was superb. A lovely pudding followed with free liqueur shot to follow. Not... More

Being a Kentucky guy who loves Spain (been there 6 times) I had the good fortune to visit San Rafael with friends who have retired to the area this past November 2013. It was perhaps one of the 2 best meals I had during a 16 day vacation in France and Spain. The Rabbit I had may have been the... More

Went with friends, we all had suckling pig, wonderful. The food was good, so was the service. The inside was clean and a good ambiance. Would go again.

We were staying this trip near San pedro but we couldn't miss our favourite restaurant. Always have an excellent meal there. We were not disappointed, will be back on next trip at Xmas.
