The setting couldn’t be better - a pretty, peaceful garden with a beautiful view of the rolling hills. And the food was among the best Indian food I’ve had (and I’ve had a lot!). My tween daughters and I visited twice in our 24 hour...stay in Capileira, and if in town again we will go again! Paneer masala was particularly tasty. Highly recommend.More

Were surprised to find this Spanish and Indian restaurant on the Northern edge of the village. One of the bonuses is that if you are prepared to have 200m walk there is lots of parking! A priceless commodity. We had the plate of mixed Indian...starters. Pakoras and Bhajis. The Paneer Bhaji was exceptional, all the others were crisp and Tasty 10/10. For main, Gambas Jalfraizi and Chicken Rogan Josh with plain rice and a plain Naan. The chicken was delicious. The Prawns were exceptionally good, very tasty and cooked perfectly, the sauce was very fishy and delicious. The Naan was disappointing, closer to a Chappati. Certainly one of the best Indians we have had in Spain and the view was breathtakingMore

We have been visiting the restaurant previously at this location, the long-established and well-regarded "Casa de Paco y Pilar" for many years, and were always satisfied with it's excellent rustic Alpujarran food and wine selection, not to mention the stunning views of the Poqueira gorge...and the Sierra de Contraviesa opposite. However, we have now visited twice since the name (and presumably the ownership) changed to the "Jardin de los Sabores" and, after 2 disappointments, we agreed that we would not visit again. Since the changeover, the restaurant is concentrating on Indian cuisine, which my wife tried during both visits and her verdict was that the food was mediocre at best and needed more spicing. Virtually all of the other clients were Spanish and perhaps for them Indian cuisine is a novelty in a location like the Alpujarras, but for anyone with experience of genuine Indian food, this would be a disappointment. Sadly, the token selection of Spanish food is now very limited and mediocre and a much wider selection of better food can be found elsewhere in the pueblo. As regards the wine, no "carta de vinos" was available and neither it transpired was wine by the bottle. Eventually, we ordered and were promised a bottle of Marques de la Contraviesa rosado from Murtas, but actually got a 1 litre jar of what we assumed was the local "costa". Even worse was the service- although polite and pleasant, the staff totally mixed up our order, although we had requested it in well-practiced Spanish. My wife was served the starter as a main, while I received a main...but no starter! Finally, the desserts arrived as ordered and were pleasant, but unexceptional. Our experience on 2 occasions suggests that there has been a sad decline since the days of "Casa de Paco y Pilar" and I would suggest only visiting if you're suffering from curry withdrawal symptoms!More

Great food and an amazing view - staff lovely. We had starters - veg samosas - which were homemade and so tasty! Followed by chicken tikka masala, chicken korma, sag paneer and nan. All dishes exceeded our expectations. A real fiery treat.

We visited the place after walking from Capilerilla to Capileira and was the first place we found. We were gladly surprised of the nice viewings from the terrace and decided to stay. The staff was very friendly, the traditional food was great (we didn't try...the Indian) and the quantity was generous. We all agreed we would come back.More

We arrived to Capileira with my boyfried after trekking for few days in the mountains. With empty stomachs we headed to this cozy restaurant with amazing garden seats and breath-taking view. We ordered starter (cold almond soup), main dishes (calamares and vindaloo - a bit...mild but delicious) and desserts (flan and cheesecake) and we were absolutely satisfied and happy. All the dishes were delicious, the staff was really nice and cool. We also liked that the restaurant was dog-friendly. We would definitely come again. Great experience!More

We’re big lovers of Indian food & the only thing I can say about the food here was it was awful . Well below expectations. We traveled from Cordoba and stayed the night in a local finca so we could take our time and enjoy...the food . We were in and out in under an hour . No sooner the starter was served the mains were also served ... the nan bread was more like a nan shaped flat bread . The mains very way to mild even the masala was way to mild ... Of course every one has their own opinion whoever we won’t be returning . Nice setting though .More
