This is a fantastic restaurant for meat. It is in the display counter at the front of the kitchen for you to choose/ask about cuts. The staff are fluent in several languages just ask for someone who speaks yours. Even when they don't they still try and help! The steaks are just fantastic, as are the starters and deserts. We...

La Castilleria is located down the hill and across the highway from Vejer de la Frontera city center. Once turning to the right on Santa Lucia from the highway, one must drive all the way back on a narrow street. The restaurant is situated at the very end and has a parking lot available for 2 Euro. TIP: This restaurant... More

We went in March which was kind of low season, so the restaurant was only open for lunch. (They open for dinner starting in May.) This restaurant came highly recommended by friends and locals as having really good meat, probably one of the best in Europe. We were not disappointed. The covered terrace, supported by tree trunks, was very cozy,... More

The food is fine - some dishes are even good, but it's let down by poor service. We were staying nearby, within walking distance, so we tried La Castilleria twice. We booked both times and each time were left waiting for over ten minutes. On the first occasion, no-one was visible - though with a booking in the diary it... More

We had a wonderful time and enjoy one of the best meals ever. Incredible meat that we all enjoy, good service and beautiful setting. Some starters were great, and some not to the level of the rest. The desserts made with organic eggs are memorable. Looking forward to come back next summer

Went here on my birthday with my 2 sons. The setting is fantastic and although we were a bit early we were served drinks promptly and could order our meal when we were ready. The meal was served at a leisurely pace and was delicious. The service was very good and we were given an excellent recommedation for wine. They... More

Our hosts had recommended this place when we said we wanted a nice steak. Trip advisor seemed to concur. We arrived early, got a great table and had a very interesting starter but when the main arrived, we both felt disappointed. A real shame as everything else about the place was superb; location, service, ambience etc. A real shame we... More
