The restaurant is situated on the ground floor, with a Bar dirctly above. Located in a small mountain village in the heart of the pretty Lecrin Valley. The restaurant is rarely open in the winter months unless trade demands it. The food is generally served in the Bar above which has been laid out with additional tables to cater for... More

We ate here twice during our few days in Restobal (one was a take-away pizza). We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the comfort, decor and ambience of the restaurant, the staff were excellent, giving an exemplary service. We had the slow roast lamb (that you must pre-order at least 24 hours prior) and it was sensational, my mouth is watering... More

A wide selection of typical Andalusian food, plenty of fish choices, meat dishes and tapas. we've eaten here several times over the years. The service is friendly, food tasty and plentiful. The family are all incredibly kind, friendly and helpful, they don't try to press you to order more than you want just to get more of your money. Sitting... More

Love this place. It's basic in terms of food, but has everything and always cooked well and served with a smile. Jose's family is lovely. The bar upstairs is great for hanging out with friends and the tapas keeps coming. Great value for money and a lovely little bar and restaurant in the middle of the Lecrin Valley.

It's a few years since we were last in the Lecrin Valley but we decided a trip back to Meson la Despensa for their fantastic roast lamb would be perfect for Christmas Day. As remembered the family that run the restaurant/bar are warm and welcoming, and the complimentary tapas in the bar upstairs was great. The roast lamb is excellent... More

Situated in the centre of the village of Restábal this family run restaurant and bar offers good local dishes. Excellent tapas in the bar upstairs. Very reasonable prices. To order - very tasty leg of lamb roasted in a wood burning oven on the premises. Good and friendly service.

La Dispensa is located on a small street down on a hill as you leave Restabal heading towards Penos del Valle. Consistent quality, family run restaurant with good meat and fish. Immaculate restaurant and good service. Cosy in winter with big log fires. Excellent tapas bar above the restaurant. Only downside is no outside eating area.
