Reviewed April 28, 2014

You always wonder when you read so many good reviews whether a place is going to live up to the hype. But I'm very pleased to say this matched and went past our expectations. The setting was brilliant, the staff quick and attentive, and a menu including lots of variety and price. I went for the 22euro 3 set course and the filet mignon was a dream. It is now on our list for a return soon.

“Same Restaurant as the No. 1”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

See my review today of this restaurant under its correct name Venta El Jinete (No. 1). The reviews for the present name should be moved to the correct one.

“Always Excellent”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We have had lunch and dinner here on a number of occasions, latest last week, and have been impressed every time by the quality of the food, the presentation, the professional staff and the ambiance. The 17 euro lunch menu and the 22 euro dinner menu, with multiple high-quality choices, are exceptional. Large high-quality joints of beef and other meats are on display in a glass chill cabinet, and steaks etc. are cooked on an open grill. It can be rather noisy when full, and on some evenings there is live music (a single artist or a small group, often Spanish style), so you need to be careful with what sort of atmosphere you prefer. Nice location up in the hills above La Cala, with a nice terrace with mountain views.

Note that this is the same restaurant as "El Jinete", No. 9 (at present) in La Cala, which has fewer reviews: they should be combined.

Reviewed April 22, 2014

We had a flight to catch and limited time but lady on phone suggested we came half an hour before they opened to have a drink and order ready for when the kitchen opened. we did and meal was served in a short space of time but the quality was not compromised. Thank you.

“Very good restaurant and value for money”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

I visited this restaurant on a couple of occasions with all my family. Once we went on an evening when there was a live singer which from memory is a Tuesday. It's was very good but to noisy to speak.

The next time we went was brilliant, great atmosphere, outstanding food and views and very good value for money.

Will be returning soon.
