We were visiting friends and had twc meals there to celebrate a birthday and an all round celebration. It was (to a meal) an amazing gourmet experience prepared by the deft hand of a first rate french chef and perfectly timed and served by a unobtrusive, friendly front of house manager. The restaurant was spotless, interesting (great local finds displayed on walls) and child friendly but not over run. Still perfectly possible to have a romantic meal a deux. I am from NYC and live in London and I am always over the moon when I find taste, quality and character (and good weather) all in the same place. As McArthur said, "I will return."

We stayed with friends in a nearby village and after our visit with them to El Paniajo on the first day, we went again -- and again! Wonderful hospitality from Jess and Anne-Marie, and an amazing camaradie amongst all patrons. After telling Jess how much we enjoyed a CD being played, she in no time presented us with a copy of it to take home. How about that for exceptional customer relations! We'll be back (from USA) as soon as we can.

We try and visit this restaurant at least once during our visits to Southern Spain. This trip we managed 3 visits. Once with friends, and twice as a couple.

With a menu del dia, bar snacks and the full menu available, A restaurant, the bar, and outside tables, the choice of where to eat, and what to eat is very flexible.

In our 3 visits this September, we had a meal from all three different menus. The standard of food and the presentation was superb on each visit.

The choice is very wide, and they are able to cope with a gluten free diet.

I have known of El Paniajo for approximately 7 years, it is without doubt not only my favourite restaurant in Spain but probably one of my top 5 in the world. The food is amazing and the girls that run the establishment have now become firm friends. When I think of going back to Almeria going to El Paniajo is what I look forward to most. II would highly recommend it for an excellent dining experience.
