Another great little place for a lunch time menu del dia in the Casares road. Typical Spanish grub on meat and potato based side. Lovely starters, I'd recommend the house salad (everything is better with a poached egg on too).

Drinks can be pricey but my word they're worth it. I had a strawberry daiquiri which cost be a heady €10 but it was the best I've had outside of the UK and perfect for a sunny, boozy lunch.

The deserts are a bit hit and miss but then I'm not a set custard fan so perhaps that's a little harsh.

Lovely setting, both in the courtyard and the restaurant. Pretty, chilled out music , and excellent service. Hard to beat for a typical €35 per couple meal. Go now, and don't drive. Enjoy the daiquiris!

Had not booked a table but they were able to seat us, really busy with families and large groups, did not expect it to be so busy as remote. Watched vultures flying overhead whilst sipping cold white wine. The menu was varied and a good selection of specials, rabbit, suckling pig. We had a starter that was recommended by the waiter, very good cant remember the name but it was marinated mackerel, very tasty sweet and sour tastes. Loved the outside seating area with bar.

Saturday nights experience at dinner on a family special occasion was the worst in Spain. The staff were pre-occupied - unorganised - under pressure - the food was BLAND, agricultural and poorly presented...... the ambiance resembled a motorway cafe with children, pushchairs & roadside view ! The whole experience was extremely disappointing, we wasted a babysitter & a precious night out, should have stayed local and eaten in the many gourmet restaurants in the Sotogrande area ! My advice would be drive past and go to an excellent restaurant further up the Casares road and visit Arroyo Hondo which is superb......

We visited the Venta Garcia twice for lunch on our recent holiday. The food is simple Spanish cooking which tastes delicious and is served by the charming owners. We had the menu del dia at €13 on both visits which included a choice of salads or soups followed by mains such as confit of duck, cod, sea bass and lamb. My husband's cod was scrummy and would have cost a fortune on any uk menu. The setting for the venta is beautiful and i particularly liked the ibiza inspired bar where you could enjoy a cocktail. Definitely worth a visit.

Very nice setting in the mountains above estepona. Starters were ok, but mains were not good. A bit strange. Service is ok, bit our waiter had a bad night.
