We were aware of the Ruta del Veleta and hadn't fully decided to visit by we were passing at lunchtime and they happily welcomed us even if we were a bit early. We had a leisurely drink with golf ball-sized olives in the... More

We went for birthday celebrations on the recommendation of friends. We all had the tasting menu which, although expensive, is worth every penny. Service was attentive and staff very friendly. The rest of the menu looked really good (watching what other diners ate) and we will return to try other dishes. Also the loos are amazing!!

This is a shady and delightful restaurant which serves excellent Andalucian food - it was one of the highlights of our trip. Service is quiet but good.

A mixture of tradition and innovation with high quality produce, technique and service. At least one visit is a must for those who are interested in getting a glimpse of Spanish culture through its cuisine. Highly recommended.

Great and lovely place to see. We were there over weekend for celebration of friends 18th b-day and it was amazing. Service was fabulous, food delicious, it is little bit expensive but worth it to spend there. I can only recommend this restaurant when you are any close by.

The decor is over the top and the topic of conversation at our table. Seems they handle a lot of tour buses at lunchtime and they can get overwhelmed.The food was good but not remarkable enough for me to remember it in detail.

We had a delightful lunch there. We had a tasty samplers lunch which I sure was arranged by our tour group. The restaurant is heavily decorated, but it worked. The ladies restroom is really quite nice.

This is the second time my wife and I have dined at Ruta del Veleta and this is my second review. I'm writing a new review because our experience this time was quite different to our first visit but every bit as good. Our first visit was on a summer's evening on the terrace and we ate a la carte.... More

Lovely, attentive, service in a most attractive setting. Food (we had lunch) was lovely - as good as we've had in Spain (short of Michelin starred venues).
