Last day renting a villa in St Lucia we went here for a late lunch. Superb table at the terrace overlooking the valley and Vejer city. Had jamon, spinach salad and shrimp croquettes as a starter, my wife and I shared a paella and the children had lamb chops for mains. Mango smoothie with cava and caramel pudding for dessert....

Excellent service and delicious food. Not cheap but it is very good indeed. Highly recommended for a long lunch in the sunshine.

Haven't been for a few months as it was closed a lot in the winter. Now I believe it is under new management and the food and service is just as good as it always was. Maybe not quite so personal but we had known the owner and chef before for many years. We shared 3 starters, the goats cheese... More

We visited this restaurant twice for Sunday lunch and it really does have everything. A fantastic menu, exceptional food beautifully presented, professional and friendly staff and a view to die for. We had tried to get in to the other restaurant in this village but it was full. Our lucky day as this place is just what we like and... More

This is a fantastic restaurant to relax with family or friends, confident in the knowledge that the food will be excellent and the service impeccable. The menu was all too good we could hardly choose and we were all delighted. The beef entrecote in black garlic sauce was excellent as were all the dishes. We all fought over the bitter... More

It has been a while since we last visited La Tajea but we were delighted to find that nothing has changed. Unhurried service ,wide ranging and well thought out menu, affordable wine list and great views. Lovely setting both indoors and outside in the garden.

We had a lovely family lunch here with a 7 month old and a 4 year old. Lovely views from the terrace and great food. Good steak, lovely octopus carpaccio, great oxtail. Venison stew was very tasty but slightly over salted for our liking. Waiter was excellent and recommended the house red which was good as well

We visited La Tajea three times during our holiday and loved it - it deserves some real attention from anyone visiting the area. Excellent service, very impressive food and a sensibly priced but sound wine list. Only a few yards from a more publicised restaurant but actually miles ahead on every level. All enhanced by great views. Highly recommended.

stayed in santa lucia and booked a table for 2 on Saturday but there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant. We do not speak a lot of spanish and with only a spanish menu and the staff speaking very little English found it slighlty difficult to fully understand the menu. The food was ok but nothing to rave... More

We stayed for 2 weeks in Santa Lucia and felt so lucky to find this great restaurant at walking distance. La Tajea serves modern versions of traditional spanish dishes. We loved every bite of our dinner. We were there on a quiet evening on a weekday and got superb service. The setting is wonderfull, make sure you can sit on... More
