Almazara. That’s Arabic for the “Place where it is squeezed”. Why Arabic in Mexico? I dunno, probably because it sounds cool. But “the place where it gets squeezed” makes all the sense in the word. It used to be an olive factory. It was THE olive factory, where olives were squeezed and pressed, and where oil was made. Back in... More

The food is excellent, good service and the environment is perfect. I advice you to reserve a table before you reach the place since must of the times is booked.

Great job to transforming a former olive oil processing factory into a unique restaurant. Definitely worth the visit...

The good: The place is beautiful, well decorated and spacious. Waiters are attentive The bad: We went on a Sunday 1. The food is very overpriced. We order the tuna ceviche for an appetizer, it is about fifteen dollars and it yields barely two small tostadas. The flavor is bland. Other people at my party ordered the cabeza tacos, they... More

Last Sunday I visited Almazara Gastrobar in the heart of RANCHO OLIVARES and the wine country. I had not returned to this restaurant in over a year but was very pleasantly surprised at the great menu choices available. Sundays are always BRUNCH, and I do not normally like them, but the server suggested that they would be happy to provide... More

The food, the ambiance of almazara is simply out of this world. You visit an old olive plant from the beginning of the century. On one of the buildings sits a great restaurant with beautiful views to Guadalupe valley and plenty of trails to hike/walk and or take the children. Risoto/Rib eye/Octopus

Save your money for one of the many other good eateries in the area. Over-priced-plain and dare I say..too much food...perhaps they are catering to Americans that LOVE big portions but I don't like to leave feeling stuffed and It wasn't so good I wanted to eat it all. Pricey by Baja standards, without anything special. We had a lamb... More

The setting is beautiful, the service was very bad, the food was good. I expected much more because It recently changed chefs, but the chef is not there anymore. We asked for white wine and it was warm. We asked for ice and they gave us a small small bucket. Se we had to ask again and again for everything... More
