We raved about Gourmet Natural last year so saved our visit to the last night of our holidays. What an absolute treat. It's not cheap, it's reassuringly expensive but every aspect of the food, ambience and service is excellent. Effortlessly excellent. It's in no way pretentious, nicely understated and wonderfully relaxing. Try it. You'll struggle to be disappointed.

Booked for my birthday meal 2 weeks ago. Outside dining in a wonderful setting. Cocktails to start, lovely steaks. My son has the fillet steak and my husband and myself shared a chateaubriand which also came with a hot plate which was good as I don't like it as rare as my husband. Downside was you had to order the... More

We have been here before a few times but visited this Year with my children and parents, sat outside in the wonderfully relaxed garden, with great food, great wine from Uruguay and faultless service! This restaurant is delightfully stylish, relaxed and a real gem, well worth a visit.

Very disappointed , my partner ordered empanadas that were quite frankly tasteless. Shared a chateaubriand steak that was incorrectly cooked , not quite the medium rare we expected and quite gristly . They knocked of 9euros and gave us free cappuccino and glass of wine each. When we paid the bill no change was offered and we had to ask... More

Tried to book Parilla Natural during our stay and couldn't get a table until 10pm so they recommended here instead. I must say we weren't disappointed. We were seated promptly on arrival but did take some time to get menus. My husband had the steak with gorgeous sweet potato with pesto and almonds as a side. Sounds so wrong but... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted with caring and attentive staff who went out of their way to make the occasion memorable for us.
