“The best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went as a small family party of 3 on Xmas Day for lunch (our third visit). Once again we chose the degustation menu which was fantastic...........we started with super fresh French oysters. I love the fact that you know you are going to get amazing fresh, seasonal food cooked and presented wonderfully. We placed our wine choices firmly in the very capable hands of Javier the owner......excellent. Javier has a real passion for vino and has a very interesting and I might add, delicious cellar. The atmosphere was wonderful - so very friendly and warm (thats the people).....warm also from the lovely wood burning stove that is so rare in any Spanish bar/restaurant in this area. Well done guys for another fabulous lunch (and day in this case!) Can't wait to return...soon.

“Surprising gastronomic excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Knowing this area for 30 years we always wondered why no adequate restaurant was established. For quality food one had to go either to Antequera or Ronda both over 40KM away. But recently we discovered Restaurant Yerbagüena or actually Hierbabuena, which means mint herbs.
A restaurant located at the outskirts of the village of Campillos easy to find, a former Flamingo establishment, transformed four years ago by the son Javier, the new proprietor, in a top quality restaurant. The house menu DEGUSTACIÓN is highly recommended, consisting of 7 entries and frequently changed.
Javier has an impressive wine selection and knows as a professional sommelier his wines very well. His explanations are instructive and for many an eye-opener.
The ambience is cosy and the staffs are friendly, efficient and pleasant.

“Hard to find Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Four of us ate there for a lunch and a dinner. We had meat,fish,salads, vegetables and desserts. All were delicious. The owner is charming and incredibly helpful. The wine list is very interesting and prices very fair. The only issue is less than ideal sig-posting which he is aware of and trying to remedy.
If in the region, do not miss.

“Always fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

We have been fortunate enough to eat at yerbaguena on a regular basis, the food, ambience and staff have always been brilliant. The degustation menu is a great way to try dishes that you may not normally get to try. Even the tapas that come with a simple drink in the bar are very tasty, the foie gras with goats cheese is amazing.
It's a bit out of the way but well worth looking for, just head for the station and follow the signs
You won't regret it

“Excellent yet again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was our second visit - we had the degustation menu again and both the quality and the presentation of the food is wonderful. A great place to take friends new to the area.
