Description: We are a big family that strives year after year to offer something unique. Castilleria is a trendy place located in a nature environment of clean air with the best raw materials grilled. Castilleria tells its history and its landscape on the table; in the flesh, in the wines and in the coal that fuels the fire and give the perfection to the grill.

We booked a villa in the little village of Santa Lucia on the strength of this restaurant. It's a little oasis with views straight into the kitchen. If you enjoy grilled meats then this place is a must. The leg of lamb is fantastic. There is also a good wine list. The service is impeccable. If you're looking for something special try here but book as it gets very busy.

I have eaten three times now at La Castilleria. The variety of meat is absurdly good and when we asked what the difference was between one type or age and another, we were shown to the kitchen to see. I have been in Spain for many years, including the Basque country and not seen such a variety of meat. The first courses are very interesting too. Do not expect fish or sea-food because that is not what it is about.
Except in the winter months, you will not hear an Andaluz accent. The people who eat here are from Madrid and further north who know that this is the only place to find very good meat in this area. As in the Basque country, nearly all the waiters are waitresses and they do an excellent job.
In the summer months, July and August, it is impossible to get a table unless you book weeks in advance.
All the tables are in the open air and in a very pleasant ambiente.
The food is very good but not cheap but, for what you get, I do not consider it at all excessive in price. The people who come here from the north will be delighted with the value for their money.
To repeat,if what you are looking for is an extraordinary variety of meat, you will find it difficult to find anything so good for many miles around. I will certainly be going back now that the hurly/burly of summer is over because this is an unique restaurant.
