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

The solomillo is without doubt the best fillet steak i have eaten. Unfortunately it also seems to be the best kept secret , whenever we go we... More

One of the most charming restaurants in all of southern Spain, beautiful sorroundings and impecable decoration. Appetizers are all recommended (and yummy!) and entrés simply delicious - solomillo con salsa de foie gras is a must! Service is perfect, the chef extremely kind (and gorgeous!). Strong recommend that if you are in the area to make a reservation.

We ate here last time we visited Santa Lucia and were delighted to find that the restaurant was not only still here but was better than remembered. Lovely views, wide choice of menu - traditional and modern, and really good value wines. Booked for 9pm and left at 1 am having had a great evening.

Food was all excellent except pudding which was pretty mediocre or even poor compared to the standard of the other dishes. Will certainly be back though and hope lots more people are too. We were the only customers there (was a Monday night though) so would have been a little nicer had there been a few more.

On a roadtrip around Andalusia, my wife and me came across La Nueva Tajeva outside of Vejer this Saturday afternoon. The restaurant is beautifully set in a natural park, with an amazing view on Vejer. Upon arrival we were greeted by a mother chicken followed by 9 little ducklings....enough to fall in love right away. The friendly chef is from... More
