The restaurant was recommended to us by a local family as one of their favourite places to eat in Priego. The menu was varied and contained a variety of local dishes. Four of us chose different dishes and all were excellent. Well cooked and well priced. We were there at lunch time and it was packed with locals

I'd had high hopes for this place. The location is superb and the menu interesting. Sadly my lunch was most disappointing. My revueltos with local spinach type greens, ham and prawns was one giant fried egg, not even an omelette and certainly not the scrambled egg dish it is supposed to be. Unseasoned, watery greens, frilly edged fried egg, tough... More

This restaurant is in the center of Priego de Cordoba and has an excellent view. What surprised me was how good the food was. Looking at the outdoor menu I met an American couple and we were all pleased with the excellent meals.

For many restaurants, if they have a large crowd for a party or wedding in they either close the place or the service isn’t up to par. But not at Balcon del Adarve. The night we arrived a large group came in for a pre-wedding drinks and dinner. The service was fantastic and the food exceptional. Even though the staff... More

The views here are fantastic from the Balcony, the food is good and very much of a local flavour. Service was good as well. A little dearer than a lot of other places in Priego, but by no means expensive.

Went here on the recommendation of our Spanish friends, and the food was every bit as good as they said it would be. Three of us had the magret de pato (duck with caramelised apple) - apparently the restaurant has won an award for this dish, and it was easy to see why, it was beautifully cooked and presented. It...

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of the house we were renting in Priego de Cordoba. I was traveling with my husband, father and teenage nephew, son and daughter. One evening, the kids wanted pizza, so we sent them over to the restaurant on the plaza near the house where we had had great pizza and beer... More

We ate here 3 times, once for lunch and twice for dinner. The food was great, and clearly the restaurant is aiming at a more sophisticated palate. Fried baby eel salad might not be to everyone's taste but it was delicious ! Portions are generous and there is a good wine list. The service was friendly and helpful, if erratic,... More

A charming restaurant, great food, fabulous views, just a bit hard to find! It's up the cliff and tucked away, but only a short walk from the centre. Traditional dishes, we tried the carillada (pigs cheek) and it was delicious.
