If you are looking for good quality meat there is no doubts you are in the right place. My family and I started coming to this restaurant when they opened years ago and they were a little family run place. we still go there for every special occasion we have, they serve the best meat I have ever eaten and...

Seriously as the title suggested just just up this is probably my favourite steak place on the globe. I have to put 100 characters for this review but all I need to say is holy mother of god I love you guys.

A basic rule: it fails to meet, meets or exceeds expectations. The vast majority fit into the first two categories. This place - wow - is certainly in the very rare 'exceeds' category. What to expect? It's a meat place, set in St Lucia, a lovely little village outside Vejer. Monday night in June yet very busy. The locals know... More

Beautiful spot and worth walking up to the aqua duct just 150 metres up the hill. Vejer is unique and full of great spots to eat and drink. This is a special spot but you do need to be aware of the need for a taxi or to drive back so watch your alcohol. Beef was well presented and described... More

Service was oddly distant, arrogant even. Location is lovely and the restaurant has moved with the times. We have been to Vejer every year for 15 years but we feel they over rate themselves rather and need to work harder We drove so could only drink glasses of wine after a reasonable g n t. Selection by the glass non... More

My good friend Cliffy has been banging on about this restaurant for about 4 years. Yesterday I finally got to experience it for myself and I wasn't let down. The setting is lovely, the quality of the steak is up there with Goodman, Hawksmoor, Peter Luger, Wolfgang's, Smith & Wollensky, you name it. Service was great too. After a long... More

Great Quality - Good Service. A must visit if I want to try the best meat in town. Be aware that you have to make a reservation, otherwise you will have to wait because they are a lot of CastilleriaLovers around. The Location is not easy to find on the map, make sure you drive to Santa Lucia and drive... More

I have been coming to eat at the Castilleria for more years than I care to remember; whilst they now have a enclosed kitchen and tiles on the floor (it use to be much more rustic) the one thing that has not changed over the years is the quality of the food - always exceptionally high. The concept is simple... More

For carnivores this is the best place to eat. The food is fantastic and the service is welcoming. The seatings in the garden are cosy. A great place for dining out away from town, with friends or a romantic table for two

Description
We are a big family that strives year after year to offer something unique. Castilleria is a trendy place located in a nature environment of clean air with the best raw materials grilled. Castilleria tells its history and its landscape on the table; in the flesh, in the wines and in the coal that fuels the fire and give the perfection to the grill.
