We had lunch (Mexico time : 2:00 pm) last Friday at the restaurant. It is already a bit off season, so the restaurant was empty.
Better for us !!! we received pristine service, from the first moment, including a visit by the chef.

The food was great, in perfect sized portions, and with great taste. It was 5 people in our party. I tried the Carrileras de Res (beef cheeks) and were excellent. The food is contemporary mexican.
This is fine dining in a casual setting, so you won't find fries and a burger, having said that the prices are fair for the quality and quantity.

The wine list includes many local (Valley) wineries.


The view of the olive trees and vines complements the meal perfectly.

We cruised in for a late lunch and hung out on the patio... the building and atmosphere is amazing. So is the service. Food was great... we had some assorted items to share. Would definitely return... Miguel was great...

The food was awsome, had several dishes and they were all very good, beats carpaccio, grilled roman lettuce salad with prosciutto, borrego tacos, etc, you cant go wrong. The patio is beautifull but have to admit there are other restaurants also with great food and a little better valle scenery

I loved this place. Went there with a large group of friends and we never did manage to get out of the entrees. Kept ordering a little of this and a little of that and passed all the plates around, it was memorable in the best way possible. My favorites included the seared tuna and the spit-roasted lamb. We also enjoyed the grilled octopus and a cool, citrusy ceviche with an unexpected touch of tamarind sauce. These were all fresh flavors, prepared by people who care a great deal about quality and using local ingredients to make amazing food...i can't wait to go back.

Also - the restaurant is actually called "La Almazara de Rancho Olivares" in case anyone gets lost on the long dirt road into the place.

The menu at Almazara depends on Chef Miguel Angel's mood and what he caught, shot or fished that day! I describe the food as rustic gourmet and very creative and different! Enjoy!
