If you're seeking a bad service so it's your restaurant, food is less than average, bread served burned, we didn't enjoy the food neither the service despite that the restaurant has a beautiful view and nice cozy spanish decoration.

However for roast lamb, suckling pig and the like the Higueron is the best Also try the fabada. A bean stew loaded with pork , black pudding ( morcilla) and sausage. Looks great buy have... More

As a vegetatian you will find only a few options in this meat restaurant. We dropped by for coffee and tapas just because of the stunning view this restaurant has. Grilled goat cheese tapa is the best goat cheese I had. You may want to try it.

We always call in here either going or coming to the airport, it is predominately used by Spanish locals . The tapas bar at the front serve the most tasty food and the restaurant is equally as good but with probably the best view from a restaurant in the area , you can see the whole coastline from this elevated...

Now this is a review going bach several mths but one worth reviewing. A birthday dinner with friends for my wife . This is a class establishment, with amazing views along the coast. Perched up above exit 217 its easy to get to. Prices are not cheap but the value is there. Would recommend for special occasions.

Situated on a N340 @ Kilometer 217 this is a great meeting place and offers various options from tapas to fine dinning. There are two entrances one via the lift from the car park which will lead you past a large cigar room, provide an incite into the kitchens and the restaurant with fabulous views. Very upmarket and pricey, great... More

I live quite close to the restaurant. Some time last year I went with my girlfriend (to the cafeteria section), and it was terrible. It was slow, rude, and too expensive for what it was. What made it all the more humorous was that the restaurant replied to my negative review, saying that I was seated in the "fast service"... More
