first visit here this week and glad it's open having missed it at the end of the season (closes in November and just re-opened i believe). charming spot though despite being a clear sunny day or 22 degrees the roller blinds were all down so didn't quite get to take in the views that i'm sure are better when the...

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

A 'must do' if you visit Vejer or around. Great location, excellent food, perfect service. This place used to be very basic, but the restaurant has been updated a few years ago. Today, in a glass house, in the middle of the restaurant, the excellent kitchen serves as the beating heart and eyecatcher in this family run restaurant. The place... More

A great place for a really nice evening, you have to go up a ridiculous wee road but it is well worth the effort. An idyllic setting amongst the trees ensures it is coolish on warm nights and the meat is excellent. The scrambled eggs with mushrooms and prawns was an interesting, tasty starter but the lomo ( entrecote )... More

Visited on recommendations from here but sadly aesthetics is all this place had to offer. Sweet setting, hard to find though, signs not well placed! Nice helpful waitress, drinks arrived quickly, sadly once the waiter came round with the food it all went wrong. I had a pepper and asparagus salad to start but it was almost pure vinegar, totally...
