As always a friendly welcome and great hospitality - lots of work evident over the closed season on the grounds and car park- looking good. A perfect place for just a well earned "sun downer" or settle down for an excellent meal be it lunch or dinner - good menu choices and wine list. I particularly like the way they... More

The local Bodegas are going from strength to strength so we are really proud to promote local growers - 80% of our wine sales are now from locally made wines which is great news. Many thanks for...

Molino del Santo is a bit isolated, and we stayed two nights in the hotel with dinner included in our package. The menu was moderate in scope with some choices that seemed desirable only available as part of a tasting menu that must be pre-ordered. Our meals were well-prepared, artistically presented, and more than adequate in amount. Service was attentive.... More

I was staying in the hotel, so easy stop. Very good quality food, and professional staff. The menu suits all tastes, and varying orders was not at all frowned upon.
