Great food. Try the artichokes and clams. Tuna was so so. Raspberry tart desert was terrific from one w/o a sweet tooth. Dinner for two, several glasses of superb wine, about 50 euros. You really want to try this.

This is a gorgeous and authentic restaurant in Andalucia. It´s a set menu which consists of about seven small courses, (can`t remember exactly how many). 25 euros per head including wine, which is very good value considering what a lovely meal you get. The service...More

Old fashioned restaurant run by Don Miguel a gourmet chef who worked outside Spain and retired to his village and runs his own restaurant because he enjoys it. Book up because you are unlikely to find a free table if you don't. He only serves...More
