I have been going to El Jinete for 8 years and it’s always of the same standard! Good quality food cooked well and my husband can always get a decent wine. The staff are mannerly and attentive. Thanks

A special place we have adopted for our birthday celebrations. The setting is spectacular, especially if you can go when the weather is warm enough to sit outside, but we have been inside too. The staff are attentive without intrusion and the food is excellent....More

Jinete is in a lovely location in the hills above La Cala, with views across the mountains, and only just over 5 minutes in a taxi from La Cala centre. There are lots of tables on the outside terrace and there is a buzzing atmosphere....More

Jinetes is a little gem of a place to visit especially on Music night. The food is great and the atmosphere is always alive. It’s off the beaten track but actually not too far from La Cala.

Table of 6 and all agreed that it was some of the best food we’ve ever eaten. Steaks were cooked exactly as we liked (they were gigantic!) Service was also perfect! There was also an incredible guitarist who was a great part of the night:)

They were last year! They said they were only closed on Christmas Day. Contact the owners and they will tell you. You will not be disappointed.
