“It has to be the best resturant in Sotogrande”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We have been regular customers at this restaurant both during the summer and winter months. The restaurant is in the grounds of Ayala Polo club and Cancha II stands for ground number 2. The starters are typically Argentinian. The steaks are truly amazing. The wine list is excellent. It can accommodate business dinner as well as a family night out. It is an expensive restaurant.

“Off the beaten track but worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Went to this restaurant after the bronze cup Polo at Sotogrande and what a pleasant surprise.

The venue is set next to the Polo grounds in a valley away from the coast at the edge of the village of San Enerique.

It has seating both inside, on the terrace and at busy times in the gardens.

There was a party of 5 of us and we ate in the gardens.

The food was perfectly prepared and presented. The staff are friend and willing to help you if you are unsure or make a good recommendation. In essence this is a Argentinean Meat BBQ restaurant that is perfect

Pros; If you love meat this is the place to go.

Cons; The prices are not cheap but in my opinion worth every penny. Finding it could be a bit of test as its off the beaten path

Top Tip: Ask for a table on the terrace it has more atmosphere but the garden is still nice. The big garden chairs are particularly nice for a brandy and coffee after the meal

“Not easy to find but well worth the drive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Great atmosphere next to a couple of polo fields (as the name suggests), plus the best steaks in Sotogrande. Try the "Affogato" for dessert.

“Superb Restaurant in Sotogrande”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Without doubt the best restaurant in the area, we have been lots of times, booking recommended at weekends as very popular, great food and superb setting. Go in early evening and watch the landscape changing as the sun goes down. Superb ambience!! Big Ken

“Fabulous setting, very attentive staff and food to die for.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We had a fabulous evening overlooking the Polo fields and a quiet ambient setting. The starters were beautifully presented and with unusual combinations. We both went for the meat as a main course which was cooked to perfection. Selection of deserts was mouth watering and arrived like a picture. I would recommend it to anybody.
