Description: Ruta del Mulhacen Restaurant in Pampaneira offers traditional cuisine, which recalls the authentic alpujarrenian flavors of yesteryear. Some dishes are made with local and organic products to demonstrate the art of cooking in the Alpujarra. The menu encompasses family traditions handed down to Angelina by her mother "Grandma Marina". Angelina Martin, manager of the restaurant, has been collecting customs and traditions through the generations, deeply rooted in the territory, adapted to their environment and respectful with Nature.

Pampaneira is a beautiful La Alpujarra village, probably the best we have ever been to and Ruta del Mulhacen is the jewel in the crown..... right here goes, spotlessly clean, friendly, great very clean loos, magnificent views, relaxing, (did I say friendly), beautiful murals on the walls of the stairs, a smart new lift for those who would find the stairs a challenge or disabled and great food, if you take the stairs to the first floor you look straight into the kitchen through a huge glass panel so they are proud of how they prepair the food as well as the food itself!
We had a beer each which came with some lovely tapas and both ordered the traditional plato alpujarreño, a hearty campesino dish consisting of jamon serrano, spicy chorizo sausage, morcilla black sausage, pork loin, fried egg and patatas a lo pobre (poor man's potatoes), a fry up of potatoes sautéed in olive oil with onions and green peppers, I have to say I'm not a great lover of pork but this was seasoned to perfection, tender and moist the best I have ever eaten but alas too much for me to finish.
Whilst it was more expensive than down in the square (by 2-3 Euros) the meal was at least 50% better and great value.
Highly recomended quite a trek into the hills but we were at the coast in Salobrenia and made the trip twice in the week we were in Spain (says it all)

We were approached by a young lady as soon as we arrived in Pampaneira, a beautiful Alpujarran village.After a stroll round, we came back to Ruta del Mulhacen. We were not disappointed- the views from the sunny terrace were splendid. My husband and I enjoyed our four course menu Alpujarreño at a cost of only 16.30 euros each. The service was very good and the art wok on the walls up to the 2nd floor terrace were stunning. Thank you for a lovely lunch.

We visited to hear a concert (Ziggy el Gato Trio) that turned out to be excellent. That no doubt coloured our judgement, but the food was good, and the terrace a very pleasant place to sit even with out the music. The service was good when one allows for the restaurant being absolutely full, mostly with awkward foreigners many of whom spoke little or no Spanish.
It was a nice touch to bring round blankets in the interval, though they were hardly needed.
We'll go again.
