This is a charming restaurant on the beautiful road to Casares. The staff welcome you like old friends and genuinely care about your experience. The food is wonderful: rib of boar, curry, duck, all faultless. My perfect restaurant!

The food was good, but the service was very unimpressive. More than an hour went by before we got our food, none of the waiting staff seemed to notice we were there, or care whether we liked the food or not. The view and the...More
