We had a lovely evening at El Charco restaurant. The staff were friendly and the food was delicious. Mammoth steaks were served piping hot (sizzling on the plate) & were cooked as requested.

Miguel has spent a lot of money re fashioning the outside, so is now very clean and pleasant. The inside always was. Fab food and drinks. Now seems to have the smoking problem from ex-pats solved!

I have made two visits to El Charco in the last few days so waited until I had eaten two times before reviewing. This is truly steak cooking of the highest standard, Perhaps the most impressive part of the experience is the clever guide produced by the waiter to explain How the steak is to be cooked. Why don't we... More

Stopped for lunch sat outside so as to enjoy the view across to the mountains. We were the only table outside. I had the Iberican Pork, friend the 1kg steak. Pork was the best I have ever tasted, full of flavour and so tender, just grilled with salt and pepper. Service was excellent, staff very friendly. Well worth the drive.

Miguel and his team in this family owned restaurant have created, and sustain, a distinctive and hugely enjoyable culinary experience. All food in the uncomplicated menu is fresh, attractively presented, in generous portions, and superbly cooked. The wine list isn't extensive, but provides sufficient options to satisfy the discerning palate. Service is swift, knowledgeable, yet pleasingly unobtrusive. We'll be back!

We visit this restaurant fairly frequently as it is by far the best in the area. The steaks are always consistently of a very high quality and just melt in the mouth. We also love their pork dishes and salmon which always tastes fresh and moist. Unfortunately our last visit was at the weekend when they had live music. I... More
