Being a Kentucky guy who loves Spain (been there 6 times) I had the good fortune to visit San Rafael with friends who have retired to the area this past November 2013. It was perhaps one of the 2 best meals I had during a 16 day vacation in France and Spain.
The Rabbit I had may have been the best ever. Two people shared Suckling Pig and did everything but eat the bones. The fish baked in salt was impressive. All that along with appetizers and desserts made it a meal fit for a king.
The service was also outstanding, and the wine recommendations both during the meal and with dessert were spot on.
For anyone living or visiting the state of Malaga and the area around Marbella it is a must.

Went with friends, we all had suckling pig, wonderful. The food was good, so was the service. The inside was clean and a good ambiance. Would go again.

The classical restaurant serves a variety of delicious dishes with of course the '"especialidad de la casa "' which is fantastic!! The best fine dining experience you can imagine in the Manilva area. .But don't forget to make your reservation. We hope to enjoy San Rafael 's excellent experience once more next month.

We have been going to this restaurant for five years now. Food and service are first class. Meals are plentiful. You won't go hungry here!! Huge portions. We could only manage two courses. I had prawns and avocado to start followed by fillet steak which was cooked to perfection Free shots at the end of our meal most welcome too. Bill for four with wine was around 120 euros.
