We've just been back here, 16 years after our first visit - not sure why we didn't make it sooner given we have a little village house only 15km away. This has all the charm you'd expect of the oldest venta in the Axarquia - 800 years old. Blackened beams and stonework, old tiled floors, a quirky approach to the main restaurant that involves walking round behind the counter in the bar area, and an even more quirky opportunity to eat in an interior room with no natural light that was originally a large cell and still has the bars in one of the two doorways to prove it. The food's typically Spanish - for a late lunch I had an enormous plateful of fresh mushrooms (November is mushroom season of course) with chips and an egg, for about 8 euros, and could barely eat anything else for the rest of the day, and it was delicious too. Very popular, even at this out of season time of year, so get there early or reserve.
