Good food is our main target wherever we travel, so right after arriving to Malaga, we opened Tripadvisor to see what the city could offer. Yerbaguena was one of the most recommended restaurants, and although it is not in Malaga (it is in Campillon, a small village an hours drive from the city), we decided to go there for lunch... and later it turned out to be a very good decision.
We left Malaga quite late, and to make things worse, we got lost in Campillon, so we had to ask a local guy to help us. When he heard the name Yerbaguena, he told us the route without thinking. That was a good sign.
When we arrived, we were seated at the bar while our table was being prepared. While drinking our welcome beers, one of the waiters, Javier joined us, and a lot of our questions about Spain in general, and about Yerbaguena had been answered. We went to our table in a very good mood. Both of us chose the tasting menu, and the culinary adventure of southern Spain started. 1 starter, 5 main dishes and 2 desserts, all perfectly made, and in beautiful compositions. For each dish, detailed explanations from Javier, and some really good wines.
When we finished, we were invited to the bar, where we spotted some Hungarian sweet wines with pride (we are from Hungary), and that led to a conversation with Javier about sweet wines, which ended up in another tasting, now sweet Spanish wines, all of them great, again with the help of Javier. When we left (we spent almost 4 hours there), we felt fantastic.
And we just realized now, reading another Tripadvisor-review, that Javier is the owner of the place. We feel even more privileged now, thanks, Javier! :)
Highly recommended restaurant!
