“Amazing food, great place and fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We were lucky enough to get a table for Christmas day following a cancellation and could not recommend this place highly enough. This is a family run restaurant and we felt welcome right from the start. The food was some of the best I've ever tasted and the location is fanatic, about 10 minutes drive from the sea of the way to Casares. A must for anyone visiting the Estepona or Duquesa area. We are looking forward to returning soon!

“Another relaxing Sunday lunch, here's to the next time.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

For anyone in the area looking for a lovely, relaxing, beautifully prepared lunch (in Winter) or dinner (Summer) this is the perfect choice. The menu has enough variety to please most tastes...decisions, decisions....! Go with friends, family, on business, special occasions, we have done it all and can honestly say we have never had a disappointing meal. Highly and honestly recommended.

Today was no exception, we enjoyed a family lunch. Interestingly, we had a discussion over lunch about Trip Adviser as to why I should bother to leave comment as people may not believe it...please do believe it, it is honestly my own opinion. Go discover The Forge for yourself.

“Sundays would not be Sundays without the Forge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We simply LOVE the Forge restaurant in Casares, when we are in Spain ( often ) we go every Sunday ( in Summer we go week nights too ) Simply wonderful location, staff are an amazing team, warm, welcoming and funny, Athene brings the menu, I pour over it in detail, my wife looks amused because ? I order the same dishes every time I go! Empanadas for starters, Wild Boar for mains, a little Jack ( easy Graham, STOP! ) for afters we stay until late and always leave looking forward to it all again, Mike is a delightful character ( Chef/owner ) Athene, his beautiful long suffering wife ( Kidding ) seriously though, it has become part of our lives when we are in Spain, we just feel at home. The Terrace in Summer is all you could ask for, warm, romantic and utterly unforgettable!

“A Confident Recommendation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

The Forge is a restaurant which provides total relaxation, creates a lovely mood and leaves everyone we have taken anticipating the next visit. I wholly recommend it. It is located just off the Casares road so the position and views are delightful. The food on our last visit in October was, as always, excellent. The menu is nicely varied but I like many diners here do have special favourites....the wild boar for example is divine. There are specials available using seasonal ingredients. Sunday lunch is a tradition. It is often difficult to get a table so do try to book ahead. Service was also excellent.
