This gem of a restaurant nestling high in the hills away from the bustle of the coast road is one to book in advance, you won't be disappointed. It was recommended to us from people who have made this part of the world their new home. I had the wild boar which was a gastronomic delight (including a Yorkshire pudding!),... More

The atmosphere, with Jazz as a theme is cosy, the view is beatiful and the food is excellent. One is greeted as a friend when you arrive.

Hidden away in the hills of Casares, it's ambience is delightful and extremely relaxing. The owners are lovely, the staff very friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble. Would highly recommend this reasonably priced restaurant to... More

Recently had Sunday lunch here, 4 of us celebrating hubbie's significant birthday. Have been before in summer, this time was January, sitting inside warm and cosy dining area. Lovely view down hillside to the sea from terrace, but inside had interesting decor and photos that added to charm of this little gem. Started with drinks in lovely, intimate bar area.... More

Really loved the look of this place & were accommodated without having booked over a busy lunchtime. However, there was a very limited choice for non-meat eaters. What we had was nice but pricey. We were there in December & ate inside but the gardens & terrace would be wonderful in summer.

Very good food which amounted to an experience. You must book. The proprietorws are very friendly. It is not a very easy to find so thus a hidden gem of a restaurant.

We arrived on a cold day for lunch. A warm welcome awaited not only from the cosy log fires in the snug bar and restaurant, but more especially from Mike and Athens and staff. We enjoyed an aperitif, accompanied by some hommus and curry dip, sitting by the fire. We started sharing the home made chicken liver pate, followed a... More
