Lovely view down hillside to the sea from terrace, but inside had interesting decor and photos that added to charm of this little gem. Started with drinks in lovely, intimate bar area.... More

Really loved the look of this place & were accommodated without having booked over a busy lunchtime. However, there was a very limited choice for non-meat eaters. What we had was nice but pricey. We were there in December & ate inside but the gardens & terrace would be wonderful in summer.

Very good food which amounted to an experience. You must book. The proprietorws are very friendly. It is not a very easy to find so thus a hidden gem of a restaurant.

We arrived on a cold day for lunch. A warm welcome awaited not only from the cosy log fires in the snug bar and restaurant, but more especially from Mike and Athens and staff. We enjoyed an aperitif, accompanied by some hommus and curry dip, sitting by the fire. We started sharing the home made chicken liver pate, followed a... More

Had a superb late lunch last Saturday. Wonderful tranquil location in the Casares hills with a great view down to the Mediterranean Sea. A fabulous home made menu with great selection of individually created dishes. Langoustine and avocado salad with roast duck to follow was outstanding. A little brandy to finish in front of the log fire was just the... More
