We had a really lovely evening here booked for the traditional Saturday Flamenco. It has a rustic charm and is very welcoming. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Menu is simple but it was a set menu the evening we came which was very good. Started with a tasty vegetable soup, followed by smoked salmon and then a pork dish... More

This place is full of rustic charm. The menu is limited but good quality and well presented. The service was exceptional. I really enjoyed this place and in fact our trip to Casares and our lunch here was voted the best day of our holiday by all the family.

Have eaten here often and it never disappoints. It is simple, good, fine Spanish food. The gentle man is friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended and excellent value for money. The sangria is out of this world

Great bar just below the castle in El Castillo Castle its really worth a visit. Great Tapas, great beer (even Guinness) and really friendly service. It also has a real Spanish feel to the place as well, I would highly recommend a visit.

Located beside Caseras Castle, Bar El Castillo is a welcome retreat after the walk up the hill and then touring the castle. It is plain and simple and no frills. The drinks hit the spot!
