easy parking, lovely village, great location, friendly and helpful staff, great local food delivered quickly and efficiently. An all around great experience with fantastic views from the south facing terrace with views all the way to Morocco. Great value. All homemade including some great pastries to take away.

Stopped for a short lunch when other restaurants were closed in late afternoon. The serve truly home cooked food. The gazpacho was excellent and the ox tail stew was fantastic. The view of the valley, mediterranean and Gibraltar from the terrace is outstanding.

Stopped by for a pre-lunch drink and enjoyed the views from the patio. Wish we had time to eat there, the staff was very nice

We love the setting, the restaurant and enjoyed our previous visits. We went one afternoon , on TA reviews to sample the excellent home made cake. Unfortunately they only had one choice. Ginger loaf, but not the apple cake I was hoping for! Never mind , the coffee was fantastic !

a simple and cheerful place where you can experience very tasty tapas - all home made. One of the best we have experienced in Gaucin. Try out the meatballs, tomato salad, croquetas, tortilla - you will not be disappointed. And not too expensive for what you get. Apparently the desserts are divine - we have yet to try them as...

Lovely food, gorgeous view, great service. We (family of 5) had a quick lunch before visiting the Gaucin municipal swimming pool situated next to El Hacho. Delicious "El Hacho" salad and the children had omelettes. Decent menu and good value.

Perfect place to grab a tasty and authentic Spanish snack. We went for breakfast (great coffee and fresh orange juice) and lunch (fab pork loin bocadillo, tomato salad and fresh home made gazpacho) the food was really delicious and very well priced. You can eat in the front or through the back which has stunning views of Gibraltar and Africa.... More

El Hacho is a very nice tapas bar, that is a good spot to while away a couple of hours. Up in the hills in Gaucin, above Casares, and on the way to Ronda. Very nice tapas, and some nice local Gaucin wines. Staff all very friendly, and service is excellent. Views over Casares, the coast, Gibraltar & Rif mountains... More

The views from this place are brilliant and so is the food, I highly recommend the gazpacho and the meatballs, they were superb! We enjoyed having a scenic lunch followed by a day by the pool with the family. Great day out!
