“Fantastic restaurant”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We had a very warm welcome from the owner and all the staff at Yerbaguena. This place is a labour of love and it shows. The food and drinks (sherry, wine, cocktails) were superb. The chargrilled squid and the mushroom and prawn ravioli starters were simply amazing. I cant recommend this restaurant highly enough. Don't miss it!

Word of warning: slightly difficult to find, as it is slightly out of the town centre, but all the locals seem to know the place and can point you in the right direction.

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

I have reviewed this restaurant twice before and we have visited a few times in the intervening period; there has been absolutely no drop-off in standards which remain excellent. It is in an unexpected location for a fine restaurant, but well worth the trip. Last time we had the 'tasting menu' which contained some superb and intense flavours and which we all thoroughly recommend. Again they did not push us to have expensive wines, and the rose that we chose on a warm day was a good accompaniment to the menu. The tasting menu is €40 and so a bill came to just under €50 a head which I think very good value for food and service at this level. It would probably be at least double in the South-East of England, and in the prosperous Cathedral city where we live in England, you would not find food of this quality anywhere. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

“OUTSTANDING”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

You are unlikely to find this wonderful restaurant unless you know it or it is recommended but boy is it worth finding!!
In Javier you have the perfect host who will talk you through all the food and drink options with interest and huge amounts of passion. We went in a party of four and ate from the "tasting menu" which was modified to adapt to one non-meat eater-it is not cheap at 40 euro per head but is worth every cent. The wine cellar is superb and I really enjoyed browsing the bottles before making a choice-with Javier's help of course.
All the staff are amazing, helpful and knowledgeable, lastly don't leave without having a gin a tonic, simply awesome !!

“Try it for yourself”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We went as a party of four for lunch..
Good points. Nice restaurant, intimate, Wonderful host and a lovely welcome.Food beautifully cooked.
Minus points. Two of our guests wanted their meat well done, they were advised this would make the meat tough, so they compromised on having the meat medium. Duck and Beef in question. Too underdone for their liking. No vegetables available with the main dish, even of a plain variety, let alone any creative offerings. If you want to smoke you have to go outside and have a smoke on the steps to the entrance to the restaurant, no table or a chair to sit on, even though there is a large terrace area.
If you are rich and are not too hungry when you go it is a delightful experience.
Starters good, but mains overpriced and minimum of meat and fish served for the mains. The Degustacion menu which we did not try is 40 euros a head and maybe worth a try for a special occasion.
Our bill 35 euros a head for 2 starters, four mains, one dessert and a bottle of wine,
