I have been twice this year most recently in September, both for lunch. Food excellent and service the same. My partner is gluten intolerant and the knowledge of the waiters/waitresses in relation to ingredients made ordering a dream.

Great set lunch menu would definitely return, the lamb croquettes were a spectacular starter, lamb good for main and brownie for pud! All for €13.50.

We have been to Venta Garcia several times and chose to take some friends there for lunch. Luckily what they ordered went well, but I ordered the black pudding with tomato, which was a stewed mess and certainly had no taste of tomato. Then a special which was beef, ordered medium, had to be sent back as it was nearly... More

From Estapona take the country road to Casares. At the junction of this road with the main road up from the coast lies the little white restaurant of Venta Garcia. We ate in the new garden area with white walls forming various hidden seating areas, with openings framing views to the surrounding hills and a simple water feature with tinkling... More

Went last week. The food is very overpriced, basic and tasteless. I ordered the chicken enfused with garlic. Sounded great but was really disappointed and felt totally ripped off with the price of such a basic main course. The chicken was a leg. Who serves chicken leg nowadays? It was disgusting with one cherry tomato a bit of salad and... More

Went for dinner tonight. Alovely welcoming staff. Cocktails a bit disappointing. For my starter I had the mushroom special and my husband the black pudding, both were lovely. Main courses were disappointing. Again we had the specials and nothing to write home about. Shame as this was our fourth year here and we had ways had superb food. Are they... More

Been going here for a last night of holiday treat for the last 5 years. Every previous occasion has been a real treat but not this time. All started well with drinks outside but once in the restaurant everything went downhill. Were not offered a wine menu so had to ask for one. Starters were fine no complaints. A friend... More

Been to Venta Garcia many times. Normally it's one of my favourite places but disappointing tonight. Ordered Suckling Pig main course which was dry and small - as it was a 'special' the cost was 23 euros! Venta Garcia you shouldn't let that standard come out of the kitchen, it was rubbish.

The restaurant is in a lovely location on the road to Casares, as we come from Estepona to visit. Each meal is WONDERFUL as Jesus and his familial staff make everything to perfection. The lamb shank is fantastic as well as the hot pots each day. Whether outdoors on the veranda or inside, you are at home at Venta Garcia.... More
