Loved the fact that there were able to change the menu to suit our dietary requests of no meat or garlic!! Shared 2 different tasting menus and each one was different, interesting and very tasty - a really enjoyable dinner and good value! (Hotel reviewed separately)

Beautiful big room with fantastic views but something about it was a little bit sad. My starter was good but main course wasn't great.

We decided to try the El Puntal as we were staying in the hotel. We are so glad we did. From the first moment of having cocktails on the terrace through a fine food experience to after dinner drinks in the drawing room, all was superb.
