Best Tapas this side of the equator! Delicious food and such a homely atmosphere....the most exciting part is that you never know what will be on the menu...but meals deliver every single time.

I really enjoyed visiting this restaurant. There are beautiful gardens to relax in, the lunch I had on both occasions was delicious, the coffee was great and the home-made biscuits well worth a try! Great service and a lovely location - I would certainly return.

The best part about staying at the El Karama bandas with a group of 29 people was - undoubtably - the food. The outside catering by Cape Chestnut was outstanding. Thank you so much.
