We've been going here for some years now. The menu doesn't change much, but why would they need to. Excellent barbecued meats, good service, and on Sundays a really good musical duo.

Their website states music or entertainment on Thursdays and Saturdays. Why mention this I hear you ask? Well this restaurant has 2 set menus. 1 for music nights at 25 euros which carries a 5 euro surcharge per person, the other 20e but no surcharge. I booked a table for 8 on a Wednesday evening. We are given the music... More

Keeps getting better and better. Try to pick faults every time I go (this is probably the 12 th. Time) but they have kept their standards up. The chef ( part owner I think) is unflappable and cooks all the meats to order in such a delightful and laid back manner. Great staff and a must visit for anyone visiting... More

Called for a light lunch with family but decided to partake of the €20 set menu which was excellent value. The goats cheese salad to start was delicious and I went for the ribs which again were very tasty. All of us very much enjoyed sitting in the sun in a relaxed and peaceful setting. Our 2 year old Grandson... More

A little difficult to find at night in the dark, not knowing the area but once having arrived the welcome and service could not have been better. It was a music night, guitarist and singer, and the music night menu was available; 3 courses for 25 euros. There was lots of choice and everyone enjoyed their selection. We would certainly... More

Went to Jinete this time last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. However, this time we thought that there was just something missing. Tomato and black olive soup was delicious but main course of pork and house vegetables did not hit the spot. Came away quite disappointed

Christmas dinner was great, everything was cooked to perfection and the atmosphere was just right. We are going to try this place again the next time we are in town.
