“Lovely food - but where was the wine??”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

Fanatastically situated on the mirador with dramatic views over the countryside, this is a traditional and fairly up market place. We voisited late on a Saturday and had no problem getting in. Food is as you would expect heavy on the meat, with some unusual local delicacies. Partridge pickled in sherry vinegar was really good, duck with caramelised apple was fine, with flavoursome slices of beautifullypink meat but the apple showed no hint of caramel, which was a shame. Weirdly we were not offered a wine list - just th echoicfe of red, white or beer - we were really surprised at this as we had heard the restaurant was famous for its wines. Maybe the recession has hit and they have had to sell the cellar? Service totally charming if a little slow for a quiet night. overall, recommended

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

This is regarded as the best restaurant in Priego. It does have a fantastic location, particularly if you can get on the terrace which has wonderful open outlook. We were perhaps unlucky that it was a quiet midweek night with only one other table taken and totally lacking in atmosphere. The food was well-cooked and reasonably presented. But the surroundings were dull and uninspiring and the service was unfriendly, unsmiling and uncommunicative despite my best efforts at Spanish.
