We spent four days in Los Canos de Meca in September and ate here three times. Different dishes every visit and every one was just wonderful. There is both a full proper restaurant - where we had one lunch and dinner on out last night. They also have a cafe bar with the best tapas dishes for miles. For me,... More

We have been in this restaurant twice : once on the tapas-bar, and once in the restaurant. We have been so incredibly surprised by the quality and the originality of the food. People are very kind, the quality is great, the place is very nice. Certainly the best place in Los Canos de Meca ! I recommend it.

I would recommend booking this restaurant as it was very busy and we only just managed to get a table. We sat upstairs having a drink first on the sun terrace, great views. After ordering we were presented with breads and a potato dish to share no charge. First course we had the catch of the day, fresh tuna in... More

It's a beautiful place with a great staff, friendly and very helpful. We choose to eat at the tapas area, not so fancy the atmosphere but absolutely wonderful kitchen. Presentation and taste are mind blowing. This is the second year we visited and it keeps up to our expectations. Really recommend it, not to be missed

Has a very nice restaurant area,but we chose to eat in the tapas bar adjoining. You can still order from the main menu,or the delicious tapas menu. We chose to eat in the bar for the atmosphere and characters that use this place. The staff are helpful,and you realise after a couple of small dishes that the chef knows his... More

It is worth visiting Canos de Meca just to enjoy the wonderful food and hospitality of this bar and restaurant. In fact I can't think of any meals that I have enjoyed more than their red tuna sushi or squid with spaghetti. You will find an imaginative and varied menu with a helpful and friendly hostess that makes you feel... More

We ate there several times and thoroughly enjoyed the food. ( the Iberian Risotto is exceptional ).They have limited the number of tables and spread them out. An important point for foreigners to note is that they seem to operate the traditional spanish system of reservations whereby the table is kept for you and you can sit there all night... More
