Excellent salat, plenty of grilled meat, ok service, but no conversation was possible due to very loud entertainment. The outdoor eating facility is ok. Moderate price level.

Spent Sunday afternoon in the company of good friends in the terrace of Meson El Tinao. What an experience! The food was served on shared table barbecues (keeping the food hot) stacked high with a huge assortment of meats, sausages including something which tasted like a cross between black pudding and haggis (!). Cheerfully cooked by Bill on the garden... More

At our first night in Andalucia, we had dinner outside at the Meson El Tinao. It was barbecue night when we were there, with a live guitar player in the background. Our waiter was a cheerful man who advised us in his best English on what to order from the menu, and even advised us to not add any more... More

I have visited here 4 times over the past 2 years. In the hot months the courtyard and Argentinian bbq food is a must. Open From 9.00 onwards in summer. Unpretentious and quite rustic, very different to some of the new offerings on the front. The beer is good too, and when on the music adds. Will definitely be back... More

We were looking for a tapas place for a light lunch. The sign said the had tapas and raciones, but to be honest there were very few. We ate on their terrace opposite the restaurant ( the restaurant/bar would have been better) which looked a bit down at heel. The staff were friendly and helpful, and others have mentioned the...

Not a tourist 'trap' but genuine good food (big portions - be warned). We had one salad as a starter for the two of us: huge portion - luckily we ordered just one saladplate ;-) Main course: well prepared as well - good flavours. Nice atmosphere - friendly service - good housewine - not to crowded Would certainly visit this... More
