“A sublime meal in sublime surroundings”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

In the hills, about 20 minutes from Estepona, can be found this excellent restaurant, which is run by the Forge family.

We had Sunday lunch, basically lasting from around 2:30 pm to 6 pm. This commenced with drinks in the tiny, jazz-poster bedecked bar where our orders were taken.

Plenty of time to enjoy the G and T and other drinks before our table by the window was ready. The views over the garden and the while atmosphere is superb.

A bottle of very good house red accompanied the meal. All of the four dishes were top - notch and served by our host and hostess. Desserts did not disappoint either.

If you get the chance visit this fine restaurant. Excellent food, excellent ambience, excellent and very hard-working hosts!

“Just Perfect Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Went in June with some friends plus visitors from America. They all loved it. We thoroughly expected that they would be delighted to have eaten there and shared the special atmosphere and lovely food. Never ever been disappointed with this restaurant (cannot say that about the others nearby). The Forge should be a place not to miss when visiting this part of Spain. Warning, do not eat too heartily beforehand because you do not want to miss the lovely choice of starters, mains or indeed fab puddings...yummy. It has to be the number one restaurant in this region, situated high in the hills with a beautiful view from the terrace over the countryside and down to the sea. Book ahead is my advice...and do not miss it.

“Fabulous consistent food and welcome”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

Well worth a beautiful drive up from the coast, the welcome is always so warm with Mike and Athena providing our little family with great recommendations & info on the local area, we've spent a few gorgeous lunches with our young family but also more enjoyable!! date nights where the food is delicious and well presented. The staff make every visit memorable and a must for our return visits to the area. Highly recommend it for great culinary experience.

“Always a warm welcome”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Sunday lunch with Wild Boar on the menu is to be added to everybody's "Bucket List"

Vcation on the coast would not be the same without a meal at The Forge.

“I highly recommend it to everyone.”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Myself and my family visit the forge very often and it would defiantly be my favourite restaurant i have ever visited. Many people feel that it is a little expensive however it is, but you get what you pay for and more. The food is always perfect, the drinks are never empty and the staff are all lovely, chatty and polite.

I highly recommend it to everyone.
