On our annual family holiday, 13 of us this year, we again struck lucky with the nearest restaurant to our Villa. We were high up the hill behind Almunecar, so a long way from the centre of town where most of the restaurants were.. Our first visit was for a set meal, 5 courses, to celebrate the restaurant's 25th(?) anniversary.... More

The restaurant itself seems to regard itself as excellent. Our one experience did not endear either the restaurant or its staff to us. A tad pretentious and food not memorable.

The food was truly delicious and the service was just as good. The restaurant felt homely and inviting due to the staff that obviously cared about the customer and their experience and were willing to create a truly individual experience. Due to the charm of the surroundings and people.
