I have been to this restaurant on three previous occassions but never at Easter. Suspecting that it would be rather busy I pre-booked a table for our family of eight, a week in advance. When we arrived for our lunch my worst fears were confirmed. The place was severely overwhelmed by the sheer volume of people visiting the area. Despite... More

El Kiosko is the lower of the 2 restaurants at the start of the Caminito del Rey (the other being El Mirador at the top of the hill). This is also where the bus returns from El Chorro, when you have finished the walk. From here you can either take the shorter walk through the small tunnel halfway up the... More

We visited El Kiosko after our hike through El Caminito del Rey. Very nice and helpful staff. Food was ok. Nice view. Will come back! Bring your swimsuite and take a bath in the lake next to it.

Visited following a trek around Caminito del Rey so coffee and water was welcome. Good coffee but warm water. Restaurant was busy so a short wait. As with many places in Europe, standing inside at the bar is a little less expensive and actually the service was faster. 4.2 euro for cafe solo, agua sin gas and cafe con leche.

We didn't realise until after we ate that there was this older Spanish man standing and staring at us from behind the upper glass enclosed area. In fact when I went to the toilet he moved to the stairs to stare,... More
