“Excellent food, great price, lovely view”
Review of La Rustica

La Rustica
Ranked #4 of 7 Restaurants in Tolox
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 February 2017

We first visited this restaurant in 2016, where they made us exceedingly welcome after we had been covered in talcum powder at the Shrove Tuesday festival (look on Google for festival details). We went back to visit the village a few days ago, go to the Wednesday market and have lunch at La Rustica, as it had been so good. My wife and I had a lovely 3 course lunch, with bread and a drink included, for about 8 Euros. The food was rustic, hearty and filling - it was also delicious. Again, we were made welcome, the service was first class and the view over the valley is outstanding. The toilets are also good! It is obviously a popular venue with the locals (always a good sign) and the odd tourist had discovered it too. Highly recommended.

Stopped here on a very quiet and very wet afternoon for lunch. We ordered tuna salad, macaroni, followed by chicken and chips, and drank tea, beer and freshly squeezed orange juice, all for 15 euros for both of us. The place was very ordinary, the food was freshly prepared, rustic but otherwise unremrakable, no English was spoken, and entertainment was daytime TV, but it was warm and welcoming, and great value.

I had a chance to use this family restaurant 5 times (lunch/dinner), and I had a different dish every time, primarily seafood related. All the dishes were very good, some were enormous in size, including the "Russian salad". Our host was very interesting and dynamic. He doesn't exactly speak English, but he manages. It was fun. :) The wines and beers I tried were very good. The pricing is not taken into consideration in this review, but I would presume that it is decent.

This small family restaurant is good value for " menu del dia". Typical regional cooking, good choice for each course. The owner didn't speak English so good idea to have an idea of the names of meats etc in spanish, eg pollo = chicken. A challenge but good fun.
