We noticed an ad in local paper and decided to find this place. Not easy but worth the time to find it. Had steak and corvina both made to perfection. The view is outstanding and device friendly and informative about the general area. Prices fair.

It's not easy to get the place, but if you follow the Google maps instructions you'll easy find the restaurant. It's on the top of a mountain so you'll have good views of the Valdevaqueros beach and the countryside. It's suggested to book in advance,...More

I've returned here at least once a year for the last five or six. The views on a clear day are unbeatable, and the food has always been excellent.
