The food was not terrible but this restaurant offered the worst service I have experienced in a long time. It is a real shame because the venue is rather special. Oh well, there is aways tonight to find... More

Perched high above Alcala del Jucar, this restaurant has brilliant views and is great for lunch or dinner. We stopped for lunch as part of our coach trip and although the restaurant was quite busy with more than just our coach group, the food was very good and served hot.

Having had a wonderful day out in alcala del Jucar and surrounding area. We came across this lovely restaurant perched at the top of the village.which served a plentiful menu of the day for a reasonable 15 euros each. Which could not be faulted in the least. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a visit.

Stunning views! The service is impeccable and we've just had the best sirloin steak ever!!!! This restaurant is a must and we will definitely be back. There is a menu for 15€ a head. Book as it does get very busy.

You do not go to a restaurant for the views, but in this case it worth a visit just for having impressive views on the village of Alcala and the Jucar river canyon. In addition, food is not so impressive but it is quite good.
