We stumbled upon this place as the restaurant we were going to was closed on Mondays. Glad we did as it was really good and great value too. Struggled a little with English, set menu for €15 was all in Spanish and it would have taken ages to translate the lot as there were loads of choices on it, but... More

I ordered roast lamb and was amazed to see almost a whole leg on my plate! it was excellent although the vegetables are the 'usual' soggy frozen stuff which is a pity.

The food was excellent but as we were the only customers it did lack atmosphere. This restaurant could be top notch but they don't make the effort to clean the place up outside. No one wants to look at dusty window sills! We had the menu del noche, there was plenty of choice. My prawn pil pil had 12 huge... More

We have visited this restaurant many times but on the last occasion we were very disappointed with the attitude of the waiter who showed no interest at all, he gave us the impression we ere an impostion to him, this spoilt what used to be a very restaurant for us. dont know if we will try it again.

This restaurant deserves more credit. Although it is not right in Alhaurin el Grande, there is plenty of parking and we received a very warm welcome. Although we don't speak Spanish and the staff don't speak a lot of English, we were treated exceptionally well and felt totally at ease. The view over the valley is beautiful. The menu is... More
