The restaurant filled up just after we got to it and we were very pleased that we had got a table. The service was prompt and efficient whilst being friendly and helpful. The food was well cooked (I enjoyed the local soup which was more like a stew followed by a trout with subtle flavours) . Wine was good! There... More

A nice spot near the edge of town with lovely views of the surrounding landscape. On the edge of the car park, but you hardly notice. Food was really good with fresh, local ingredients. Service was friendly and attentive (menus in English, German, Spanish and French - useful for building language skills!). Started with a mixed dish of mushrooms, artichokes... More

We were a party of four and some had the excellent value and others had a la carte dishes. All were good and the service was friendly and very attentive. My main course of pork loin with potatoes sautéed with tomatoes and an assortment of vegetables was excellent.

We ate here mid-week at 20:00, right as they opened for dinner. It was uncrowded for our dinner. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant. Hanging hams as you can see in the picture. I asked for some of the local Grazalema goat cheese very sharp and they accommodated nicely. They also accommodated my spouse's gluten and dairy free... More

This is a charming little restaurant. The service is great, the food is great, and the staff is helpful. They can communicate in English or tolerate your poor (my poor) Spanish. They give you lots of extras and are worth every penny (uh, centimos).

Excellent on all levels - particularly food and service. My wife and i followed the other recommendations and orders the Menu Del Dia for Euro 12.90 - we strongly recommend this place.

Grazalema has a lot of places to eat. A lot. And many of them are fine. But here is very fine in terms of ambience and service and food. It's not fancy... but everything we ate here was tasty and fresh and well presented. It's maybe a wee bit more expensive than some other places but there is real quality... More
