We travelled from the UK to Spain at the weekend to have Sunday lunch at one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in! Our friends who live an hours drive away had visited Casa Joya a few times before and insisted on taking us and we are so grateful to them for introducing us to Casa Joya. The drive up from the main road can be a bit scary but well worth it when you arrive. The view is spectacular and was enjoyed whilst having a drink on the sheltered patio overlooking a magnificent fragrant garden. The Restaurant is decorated with a wonderful mix of African, British and Spanish culture and the menu was far more extensive than I was expecting. The food was amazing and each course was tastier than the last. For my main course I chose the saddle of lamb and explained to Mary how I wanted it cooked - medium but no blood - and it came exactly as I had ordered it. Every mouthful was an explosion of taste with each course. My partner had the peppered steak and commented on it being one of the best steaks he had ever eaten. The wine was so delicious we had to order another bottle! For the standard of the food and the ambiance we felt the meal and wine were reasonably priced. Like previous reviews - don't go here if you are in a hurry as it needs the three hours we were there to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy such a wonderful relaxing meal. I can't wait to go back again - well worth the 2,000 mile round trip! Thank you to Mary and James (owners) and our friends for an experience I shall not forget in a long time.
