My wife and I called in for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised. It is a lovely restaurant with a glass fronted tearrace where you can eat and watch the world go by.They also cater for people who smoke with their own dining room.The food is top quality and the portions are very big, we had the salad to start and then mixed grilled fish and we struggle to eat it all. They have a large dining room inside and the staff are very friendly. We would recommend anyone to try this restaurant. There is also a very nice bar if yu only want to call in for a drink.

El Tunel

Reviewed By TonyMacEssex

If you are holidaying in Marbs and fancy getting away from the touristy places in search of a much more authentic Spanish vibe, then head to the hills and the quaint white-walled town of Ojen, where you will find this nice haven awaiting you at the end of a 20-minute car journey.Although there are some outside tables adjacent to the sloping road (if you park your car some distance away, be ready to do some strenuous uphill walking which can be tough on legs and heart!), as we were booked for 21.30, we opted to dine inside.Wooden tables and chairs, with books stacked on shelves, added to the cosy ambience.It was nice and encouraging to see a couple of large groups of Spanish families - three generations in both cases - eating and enjoying themselves at nearby tables. We noticed that one group of 8 shared 5 pizzas between them - a real family spirit about the place.The waiter spoke good English, while both he and his young female colleague were as warm and friendly as our pil pil prawns starter.For mains, we had fillet of veal and Iberian pork.An atmospheric, value for money (cheapest meal of our two-week holiday) experience in a lovely setting.

Reviewed By Monda15

We stopped off for lunch having driven past on many occasions. Easy parking, good welcome albeit in English, shown to a table on the terrace and ordered a drink again all in English. We were surprised about this. We decided to have the menu of the day for 12€. We chose the mackerel salad to start and beef stew for main cooked in a small traditional pot called a Potjie. Just a few things missing, no bread with the meal but when we asked they provided it, no oil and vinegar but again was provided in small dishes and no olives on the table. I only mention this because if you go into any Spanish restaurant that’s normally what they provide. The service was good and the staff friendly but we were a bit disappointed that it is all very English. The meals were very tasty and we both enjoyed the food very much.

Reviewed By Martin F

We had been recommended this restaurant by our Hotel and it did not disappoint. We arrived just as it was opening and therefore empty, but before the kitchen was open. Just as well, because by 8.00pm every table was taken and as we spent the entire evening there we could see just how popular this place is with the locals - did not hear any one speaking english. Luckily our spanish just about gets us by in a restaurant!Food was very tasty, lot's of dishes we had not tried before and very well priced, Portion sizes are small - a couple of bites each but that is how we like it so a steady stream of tasty bits, plenty of wine and a lovely way to spend an evening.Hope to be passing through Coin again sometime and another visit to Coconut will be on the cards.

You can sit and relax and watch the locals go by.Cany as he is known as makes you very welcome and is one of the best cooks in the area.

We stopped for lunch and ended up enjoying a marvellous pizza. Fresh ingredients, fresh base plenty of toppings. Accompanied by a lovely mixed salad it was a perfect lunch sitting in the square in the sunshine. Parking is tricky but there is a small car park not far away.

Cafe Luna is very close to the historical wash house and fountain in Monda. It is in a nice old, atmospheric square. There is a very busy outdoor area, across the street from the restaurant. There is a large choice of tapas and raciones. The portions are big. It is good value. Despite being very busy, our server was was friendly.

Reviewed By nikkih298

Having lived around the area for 10 years, and written many positive restaurant trip advisor restaurant reviews, we wanted to return to Monda castle to positively review the changes. It started well. Great welcome. Perfect location. Service attentive. Sadly we left disappointed. Our meals were poor and we left feeling insulted by the attitude of the waiter / manager. We ordered the €55 sharing chuleton de vaca steak. It arrived looking plentiful and piled with asparagus. On cutting into the steak it was evident it was mostly fat and inedible. (Judge the quality for yourself - the picture is attached) We told the waiter, who was also the manager (the English one) and rather than apologising and offering to replace or refund the steak he was very defensive, accusing us of eating most of the steak and leaving the fat before bringing him over and raising our complaint! He also said he warned us it was fatty. He only said it was the best steak, full of flavour and ‘lightly’ marbled, but not that it would be 80% fat - as you can see from the photo!! After 10 mins of further argument where he still refused to bring another steak or refund our money, bizarrely he then admitted that other customers had complained about the fat too and offered us a free Dessert!! Small compensation for €55 and missing out on a main course!The other meal was monkfish and lobster stew. 2 pieces of monkfish and two tiny pieces of meat from the claw. Tasty but not worth €27. We all left hungry and dissatisfied and went to another restaurant for dessert and coffee.It could have been such a different and dare I say it potential for a positive customer experience. The evening was ruined by the portions, substandard overpriced food and argumentative attitude of the manager. Bizarrely as we were leaving the manager realised he handled the situation badly, put his hands in the prayer position and said ‘sorry’. Too late. Lost our business forever. You have been warned. Such a shame. Poor service from management who can’t accept customer criticism. We shall certainly let our community know to avoid this overly priced restaurant should they also be unfortunate enough to meet this manager and be dissatisfied with their order.Dear nikkih298, Thank you for sharing your experiences at our restaurant. It saddens us to read you have had such a bad time and want to apologize for the disappointment. It is our goal to please all our guests and we go through lengths to make sure everyone enjoys themselves when visiting our castle and leaves as a happy and returning guest. I'm very sorry in your case this hasn't worked out.Your story reads like a horror one and we like to take the opportunity to share with you our side of the story. (My apologies to the Vegans and Vegetarians among us for the following detailed explanation about large cuts of meat)When Matthew took your order, he explained that the cut of meat you picked really is a connoisseur's one (weighing about 1kg of which about 20% is fatty and also has a piece of bone), it is much appreciated by meat lovers, because the fat and bone add to the taste and tenderness of the meat, but not so much by someone who isn't a fan of this type of meal. Hence he asked you if you were sure about taking it and also suggested the more friendly chateaubriand (fillet steak) which you also find on our menu. Five minutes after serving the steak he approached your table and asked you if you were enjoying your meal. You said you were.When you had finished eating (it's normal one doesn't eat all the fatty bits (however some do)) you told us you were disappointed and refused to pay for the meal. Matt expressed his surprise and remarked that he explained to you the characteristics of the meat beforehand and asked you why you hadn't told him when he came over to check on you. Is this the part which you interpreted as him being rude? What you refrain to mention is that he did feel sorry for you and that he asked the kitchen to prepare for you a smaller version of the chateaubriand which is on our menu in order for you to try the difference (this obviously free of charge). He also offered desserts on the house in a final attempt to settle the mood.We do feel sorry about this occurrence and truly regret that despite all, you haven't enjoyed your time with us. The vast majority of our guests is very happy with their experiences at our hotel and we'd love to be able to show you that we really aren't all that bad. If you ever change your mind about visiting us another time for a second opinion, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] and we would be very happy to accomodate you.
