Last dined here two years ago and although the food was of similar quality, ordinary service had become terrible. It was not the fault of the one waiter on duty but he was trying to cope with a packed restaurant. Little wonder he forgot to bring drinks, took an age to take orders and was notable by his absence for long periods. Filet steak in stroganoff sauce was up to standard but the lamb on the bone from the menu del dia was ordinary. Prices were reasonable but people will desert this currently popular joint if service doesn't improve.

This restaurant is frequently crowded and I am sure it is because it offers value for money. Many restaurants in La Herradura have put their prices up, although the standard of cooking has not altered! Maravillas offers a good choice on their Menu del Dia but it is not gourmet. We found the two waiters very friendly and efficient.

The rudest waiter I have ever experienced in a restaurant & I have been to many in my time! Waiter ignored us after mediocre 2nd course was served. After having to get up and go and ask at the bar to see the sweet menu - which was supposed to be included in menu of the day. Waiter finally came and threw menus on the table & walked off. We decided to get the bill & just leave - however once again we were totally ignored. After 20 minutes once again my partner had to go to the bar & demand the bill. There were no apologies for the awful service & below average food. My advice would be steer well clear!

We dined here tonight what a mistake that was, so many restaurants to choose from in La Herradura and we chose this place! Never again, food very disappointing, staff never smiled once just threw your plate on the table and walked away, totally rude!!
We were lucky enough to have finished our starters before the main course was served, others were not... to top it all we were presented with someone else’s bill so BEWARE check your bill before paying for the rubbish food and service! Or even better don’t go here!
