This is a fantastic restaurant to relax with family or friends, confident in the knowledge that the food will be excellent and the service impeccable. The menu was all too good we could hardly choose and we were all delighted. The beef entrecote in black garlic sauce was excellent as were all the dishes. We all fought over the bitter... More

It has been a while since we last visited La Tajea but we were delighted to find that nothing has changed. Unhurried service ,wide ranging and well thought out menu, affordable wine list and great views. Lovely setting both indoors and outside in the garden.

We had a lovely family lunch here with a 7 month old and a 4 year old. Lovely views from the terrace and great food. Good steak, lovely octopus carpaccio, great oxtail. Venison stew was very tasty but slightly over salted for our liking. Waiter was excellent and recommended the house red which was good as well

We visited La Tajea three times during our holiday and loved it - it deserves some real attention from anyone visiting the area. Excellent service, very impressive food and a sensibly priced but sound wine list. Only a few yards from a more publicised restaurant but actually miles ahead on every level. All enhanced by great views. Highly recommended.

stayed in santa lucia and booked a table for 2 on Saturday but there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant. We do not speak a lot of spanish and with only a spanish menu and the staff speaking very little English found it slighlty difficult to fully understand the menu. The food was ok but nothing to rave... More

We stayed for 2 weeks in Santa Lucia and felt so lucky to find this great restaurant at walking distance. La Tajea serves modern versions of traditional spanish dishes. We loved every bite of our dinner. We were there on a quiet evening on a weekday and got superb service. The setting is wonderfull, make sure you can sit on... More

It was a very nicely decorated place with beautiful linens, very tranquil and relaxing, good staffs but I found the food is nice but fairly average given the price is not very cheap, thus 3 out of 5.

Just nextdoors of the established and famous Castileria, this is the perfect example of how competition improves quality of both competitors. You can have dinner in a cosy garden or dinner at the back of the house with a nice view on Vejer. We ate several dishes from the menu and liked them all. The service was more than perfect.... More

We visited La nueva Tajea last summer. This year we (me, my dad, my wife & our son of 8 months old) decided to try their lunch. Same friendly chef as last year, he even remembered us. This time he offered us a tasting menu, so we left it all in his good hands and never regretted it. Sat on... More
