“Sunday Lunch with Friends”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

El Almendro is situated on the main road in La Mela, about 10kms from Sorbas. Friends live in this lovely little village so are known at the restaurant. We have joined them before at this venue and were met by Chris the owner who made us very welcome as also did Debbie who discussed the varied menu with us and took our order, Sunday lunch is traditional roasts, vegetarian meal needs to be ordered in advance but is never a problem.At the end of our wonderful meal Maria who does the cooking and is "Mine Hostess" came to our table to see if we were happy with our meal, nice gesture as one is not always able to compliment the chef personally. El Almendro is open Wednesday to Sunday and serve tapas, lunches and evening meals during week days. The bar/restaurant is very cosy with a large open fireplace which had a large log fire burning. A pleasant afternoon in a place with an excellent ambience

This was our first visit to the El Almendro. First impressions count and all four of us were very pleased with our Sunday lunch, such that we will certainly make the effort to return soon. We were greeted by the owner Chris who promptly served us some pre lunch drinks outside on the small terrace. Our orders for lunch were quickly taken and we were soon ushered into the dining room where a booth was set aside for us. I had reserved a table by telephone the week before. The food was all freshly cooked and well presented by pleasant cheerful staff. If there was any downside it would be the very, very noisy coffee machine that did not produce particularly good coffee and, for a while, a non eating male client whose voice was deafening. This is a most pleasant restaurant in a rural area where it is often difficult to fine good dining. We plan to return and give it our support. I must remember to supply a photo next time.
