Our group of 15 stopped here after hiking the gorge. We enjoyed some wonderfully cool beer, but did not sample the food, although it looked appetizing at the other tables. Great views to enjoy while being refreshed.

After spending a fabulous day, we decided to eat dinner overlooking the lakes where we'd had so much fun. The view from the restaurant is well worth a visit, but choose very carefully from the menu. We had a lovely goats cheese and mango salad to start, but the meat served was disgraceful. Entrecôte steak was tough and chewy, filet... More

Surprisingly good. Lovely fresh juices. The food is very good: lots of very hearty stews and mountain food. A bit odd to have boar stew on a day of 35C but teenagers appreciated it after the achivity.

We've visited many times over the years and called in for our fave wild boar and chips, but keen to try something different, ordered cod gratinado with "avocado mayonnaise." Weird?

The location, right next to the Caminito del Rey parking overlooking a deep turquoise lake is unmatched. The food was kind of expensive (compared to other restaurants in the area) and not very tasteful. Staff was very unfriendly. Everything had to be ordered multiple times for it to come (even when ordering in Spanish). The bill too 15 minutes and... More
