We enjoyed a range of meals on our visits to El Corral del Castano, all of which were first rate. The braised pork knuckle was melt in the mouth tasty, as was the skewered chicken with ginger and fruits. The portions were very generous. We ordered a green salad to accompany our meals and the platter provided was plenty for... More

Mostly great dishes, which exceeded our expectations. Almond and garlic soup was delicious, if a little too salty. Black pudding was excellent. Only let down was probably our own fault for not knowing one of the 'traditional' local speciality dishes: the 'secret', grilled Iberian pork loin was entirely fat - crispy on the grilled side. If you want a large... More

What a find! Exquisite mountain food and not expensive. God I wish this place was in my home town!! The steamed blood pudding was out of this world and would easily shame most Michelin starred restaurants. Don't be fooled by the comment though. The portions are mountain size not Michelin sized. We are seriously impressed. So much so that this... More

With family and friends I went three times this summer to El Corral del Castaño. It is one of the few creative restaurants in Las Alpujarras and I recommend the dishes for sharing: foie gras, filled baked onions, croquetas, nice salads different from the usual ones. And as Capileira is high up in the mountains also the typical fare but... More

My friend and I had little expectations. We were at the restaurant becauze it was one of the few that still served dinner in Capileira on Monday. The dining experience at the restaurant left us pleasantly overwhelmed. Service was friendly, happy and paced. Appetizer was served shortly to ease the wait for the mains. We had salad, drizzled with sweet... More

In case you like good Mediterranean food and very-very huge portions, do not miss this place. You will sit on the main square in a nice atmosphere. Furthermore: take it easy! The 19:30 opening hour is not taken seriously - they open actually around 8. However after 8:15 you cannot get a table. So it is a bit tricky. Similar... More

Very busy even at 10pm, a good sign! The food was perfect too, and the free entrée kept the hunger at bay perfectly and we didn't notice the wait. A good varied menu and amazing value for money. The best in the villiage.
