Ate here last night. Food was excellent. Restaurant was lovely. Waiters were very attentive and helpful without being intrusive and the portions were substantial. Made the mistake of eating three courses because the food was so tasty and could hardly move afterwards - and we didn't even eat the complimentary bread (about half a loaf between two of us). The goat was melt in the mouth and the meatballs were possibly the best I've ever tasted. The complimentary glasses of cava at the end of the meal was a nice touch as well. 3 courses each, wine etc for two came to 48 euro and even after adding a decent tip we felt as if we were cheating them out of money! Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

I have lived in the village of Canillas de Aceituno for 10 years and this restaurant is easily our favourite. The food is always extremely good and Paco and his family are very friendly, attentive and generate a welcoming atmosphere.
The menu offers a good variety and often changes which is uncommon for most village restaurants (some restaurants still have the original menus they were serving when we moved here).
A variety of small, free tasty nibbles are served along with bread before your meal arrives (remember to ask for some alioli to go with your bread). The servings are quite large so if you decide to have a starter I can almost guarantee you won't have room left for a pudding. If you do have any special dietary requirements they will do their utmost to accommodate you - even if it isn't on the menu.
The house wine is very drinkable and very reasonably priced and don't be surprised if you are served a bottle of cava once you have asked for 'la quenta'.
Every month of so they have an evening where, after your meal, a local group play to a mixture of Spanish and foreigners dancing the night away - always great fun.
This restaurant deserves to do well - the amount of time and effort Paco and his family have put into this venture, especially opening during the recession was a very brave thing to do - they even built the restaurant themselves.
I can almost guarantee you will not be disappointed if you eat here.

Visited on Sunday 5th of May. We were made so welcome and the whole meal was relaxing and delicious. We didn't order a starter but we were given nibbles including little blue cheese pies to keep us going whilst our food was being prepared. For mains we had salmon, sea bass, sword fish and chicken skewers. All were delicious and tasty. I asked for sauce (salsa) and secretly prayed they would offer us our favorites...bingo..roquefort sauce and peppercorn sauces were delivered with our mains. The building itself was the original municipal market so steeped in history, and the surroundings are stunning. The views of mount Maroma, the food, and the waiters attentiveness made it a fantastic experience.

Four of us had dinner here and were really impressed! The food was delicious with extremely generous portions. Three of us had the scallops to start and they were wonderful, the other member of our party had a salad which was huge! The two "veggies" with us both had the salmon, while I had a sirloin skewer and my "other half" went for the Indonesian Chicken. There were good selections of vegetables with all the "mains", as well as a tasty bowl of chips to share.
Unfortunately none of us could manage a dessert, but we did end the meal with coffee.
All in all, the meal was great, the price extremely reasonable and the staff were friendly and welcoming.
