We have formed a habit of going daily to El Hacho. It has a terrace with a glorious view down to Gibraltar and the Med, has a lovely range of tapas with great choice for both vegetarians and meat eaters, plus lovely coffee and home made cakes (including one almond cake that's gluten free). Highly recommended.

easy parking, lovely village, great location, friendly and helpful staff, great local food delivered quickly and efficiently. An all around great experience with fantastic views from the south facing terrace with views all the way to Morocco. Great value. All homemade including some great pastries to take away.

Stopped for a short lunch when other restaurants were closed in late afternoon. The serve truly home cooked food. The gazpacho was excellent and the ox tail stew was fantastic. The view of the valley, mediterranean and Gibraltar from the terrace is outstanding.

We love the setting, the restaurant and enjoyed our previous visits. We went one afternoon , on TA reviews to sample the excellent home made cake. Unfortunately they only had one choice. Ginger loaf, but not the apple cake I was hoping for! Never mind , the coffee was fantastic !

a simple and cheerful place where you can experience very tasty tapas - all home made. One of the best we have experienced in Gaucin. Try out the meatballs, tomato salad, croquetas, tortilla - you will not be disappointed. And not too expensive for what you get. Apparently the desserts are divine - we have yet to try them as...

Lovely food, gorgeous view, great service. We (family of 5) had a quick lunch before visiting the Gaucin municipal swimming pool situated next to El Hacho. Delicious "El Hacho" salad and the children had omelettes. Decent menu and good value.
