If you drive into this village, it is one which you would think you should keep on driving through! However, there are a number of gems here - the hotel La Postada de Lola looks dreadful but don't be deceived - it is a marvel and well worth the price. The restaurant called El Matador is quirky but has really delicious food. The waiter called Christian speaks english and is most helpful. The wine they brew there was too ordinary for me but the alternative which he recommended was superb. The cellars constructed by the Moors are good fun! Memorable for all the right reasons.

As the name Taberna Marinera indicates, this restaurant primarily focuses on seafood. The restaurant is situated in some old caves, and has also some outdoor tables. Quaint and romantic.

The food - when it arrived - was good. Not fantastic, but good. We had cheese, bellpepper and tuna salad, lamb skewers and lamb chops. Not seafood, but quite good. The food was very well presented, especially the salad.

The service was not good. All were friendly, running all the time to prepare and serve the food quickly. Still, it was chaos: Noone was coordinating anything. Result: wrong orders being delivered and same order being prepared several times.

If someone had been there, running and coordinating the staff, this would have been a great visit.

This is an extraordinarily atmospheric restaurant, set in a cave built into the hillside. Great, grilled meat based, Castilian fare. Wine came in unlabelled bottles but tasted good. Highly recommended.
