Firstly , the steaks were as good as ever. The restaurant was cold and was clear a number of diners felt the same. We were dining on music night so the fixed price menu was €25 but there were three seafood dishes on the starters and two cheese ones which was not ideal. Service felt rushed so we asked our...

We visited twice on our recent golf trip, the food was excellent, had a steak on both occassions and could not finish either. We had to book to ensure a table, but there is lots of availibility. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and would go back if we returned to the area.

Recently visited after being recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed. A table for 12 was booked and we were well looked after. The food and service were both excellent. Well worth another visit.

Live music, good quality wine and great atmosphere. If you are looking for a quiet romantic restaurant I would say this is not the place for you, not on a Saturday night. The terrace was closed due the time of year but the inside area was good and was busy. You do need call ahead to reserve a table. We... More

Excellent food with very competitive set meal prices. You will need transport as the location is quite rural

We have visited this restaurant and send some of our hotel guests here for meals . The menu for €22 is great value for money . Live music enjoyable without being intrusive . Look forward to our next visit

We have eaten here many times and never had a bad meal. The staff are so friendly,efficient and nothing is too much trouble. The set menu is excellent value for money, as is the á la carte . The chef certainly knows how to cook a steak and it always comes up exactly how I like it. Highly recommended!!

My wife and I chose this venta due to its Trip Advisor rating and close proximity to La Cala golf resort. It was a Sunday night and they had live music; we selected the €25 3 course menu and chose the prawn pil-pil to start, the filet mignon for main and banoffee cheesecake to finish. All courses were very good... More

We've visited El Jinete several times and every time we've had a great time. The atmosphere, service and food are always good and on most nights there's live entertainment.

A little out of the way from the usual restaurants along the shore . However this is definetely worth the trip up the hill . We dined off the E25 euro Music menu and all choices in the party were top class from the knuckle of Pork to Steak to copious lamb chops . We dined inside as it is... More
