We visited this restaurant a couple of times once we had found it (actually on the main road at the top and to the left of Pasaje Pilar)
There is always a chef's special amuse-bouche to enjoy as an extra course, and complimentary liqueurs afterwards, so don't over-order on the food. Service was good and the dishes all went down well.

We visited here as a group of 7 midweek. We were the only diners so the service was especially attentive. We had three courses, but could have managed with just 2 as we had an amazing "amuse-bouche" which was a starter in itself.

One really nice touch was that the waiter suggested we tried a different white wine as he only had one chilled bottle of the type we wanted and knew he couldn't get a second bottle to the correct temperature if we wanted it.

The pig cheeks were fabulous, the lamb chops a little on the thin side, but everything was very tasty. If you only go to one restaurant in Colmenar, I would recommend this one.

Good food but be aware the portions are generous. Particularly good in winter when many places are closed.

Last night Fri 24th I made a reservation at Meson El Pilar to confirm a previous opinion that the food presented at this restaurant is up there with the best in Axarquia. The menu del dia is just as well presented and of a very good quality but the a la carte menue has a fine selection of seasonally available dishes all cooked and presented in a commendable fashion. I urge others to visit and taste the fare, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Meson El Pilar. Nos vemos!

This was a special family meal and we were not disappointed. My duck confit was perfection, and other family members had steak, pork and chicken. Definitely the best meal of our stay, service excellent, accompanying wines perfect, and the ambiance just right. We moved on to Malaga for a few nights and sadly didn't have a meal that matched this excellent restaurant. Hopefully we will visit again . Thanks for a memorable evening. Very reasonably priced said our son who paid the bill!
