I have been coming here on a very regular basis for coffee, drinks, tapas and meals for at least 15 years. It is an unpretentious, very Spanish, café bar with excellent tapas, basic menu del dia and some tasty a la carte raciones or full courses. Service can be a bit surly but Fabiola the owner makes one feel very welcome. Very fair prices

Cortijo del Alcazar

Reviewed By AndaluciaFamily

The food is average, but the experience is the real reason for visiting. Set in the natural park this is a beautiful venue with streams and numerous picnic areas. Access from Alcaucin is easy, the road has been resurfaced and there are now roadside barriers too. The salad and croquetas were nice, the meat and chips a little too greasy for my liking. If this restaurant was turned into a commercial venue, and upgraded, it would be very popular. Then again, it's nice to experience the tranquillity and simplicity of this venue too. Only open at weekends, note.

Restaurante Venta El Charco

Reviewed By bp741

Visited on tuesday evening beginning august. Had a rumpsteak which was very large but a bit fatty and chips like burger king. Ate inside which was nice and cool or there is a good size outside area with a lovely lakeview. English is understood with quite a few english customers at the time. 70 euros for 3 mains, 2 small beers, 2 glasses of wine and a desert. Not the fantastic place that some rave about but perfectly adequate for a family evening meal.

Venta la parra

Reviewed By bettybell

On the road in to the village with a fabulous view from their terrace.Very quiet evening with only one other couple in the inside restaurant . Very nice homely room. Served by a delightful waitress who couldn’t speak any English but we understood each other! Didn’t seem to have any of the wines on the wine list which was quite entertaining - the one she brought us was fine though! Best garlic mayonnaise we’ve had and the pork chops were HUGE ! Menu was very meat based and simple . Enjoyed our meal, pleasant evening.

Restaurante Cantueso

Dine in style in a traditional Spanish Finca with exceptional sea, lake, and mountain views. Relaxing inside or outside on our terrace you can enjoy Mediterranean food at its best.

My first time back for over two years but the restaurant was as good as ever. Located on a spur overlooking Lake Vinuela, the gardens surrounding the restaurant are a mass of colour with hundreds of butterflies (and wasps). From the terrace the views are spectacular.The food is not bad either. The main change since a few years ago is the offer of a wide range of tapas and a small a la carte selection. We chose five dishes from the tapas section and they were all very good: deep fried aubergines with cane honey, deep fried squid with garlic sauce, fried fish (really good) and chips with tartare sauce, patatas bravas and grilled prawns with garlic sauce, which we shared. Finally, we each had a dish from the tapas section which could not be shared; a ramikin filled with patatas bravas and chorizo, topped with a fried egg, really good (and very filling)For pudding I enjoyed the fig pudding served with orange sauce. We retreated indoors when the wasps came hunting and came outside again for coffee.This is a thoroughly enjoyable venue for lunch with great views and food; the reward for the drive into the hills by Periana and the unmadeup road to the restaurant!

La Sociedad Restaurante

Reviewed By MysteryBoozer

The terrace appears like a classic venue for dinner - it's looks tempting. But are you one of their friends, or a large party? We weren't.. We asked a waiter (in Spanish of course) if we may take a table for drinks. He didn't really seem to be paying attention, and didn't look me in the eye, but there was a small nod and blink. We chose the smallest table we could find and waited for him to take our order. Without saying a word or looking at us he showed up a minute later and collected plates into a pile, then walked off again to talk to and serve a newly arrived Spaniard who had also brought his shouting children who proceeded to run around everyone's tables. He took an order from them, was joined by another waiter and they placed the usual complementary olives on their table while we continued to wait. Eventually he came, unsmiling, to take our drinks order. I asked if he had "Alhambra Especial" - my Spanish is just fine, I've been using it constantly without any problems for more than a year, we very rarely speak English here, and ordering this beer is not a big challenge. He said no. I asked if he had the reserve or any other special beers - no, only normal beer. I ordered a red wine and a white for my girlfriend. The drinks came, my red wine as chilled and unwelcoming as the service and tasted cheap. Again no smiles, no eye contact, he's distracted and looking over at other guests, or at nothing. The olives that are always brought to you even for a drink never arrive and the children scream on around us. Then I see another server bring the exact beer I'd wanted to a different table. I get up, walk over to the party and point out the beer to the person who had served our table. He mumbles away some excuse, does not apologise or offer to change my drink and tries to walk off. I say to him "Acetunas?" (olives), he shrugs and a few minutes later we receive a small dish of greasy, chewy, flavourless olives. My girlfriend finishes her wine and we leave, determining to write this review. You can't return to place offering quality and service this poor.

El Bodegon de Juan Maria

Reviewed By MysteryBoozer

We had a quiet dinner here, the interior is pleasant and we were the only customers - yet somehow the waiting staff seemed a bit too busy to serve us quickly. I ordered garlic soup and what I thought would be a nicely presented cheese platter - you know, a selection, chutneys, some salad perhaps, but no. The garlic soup just tasted like a cold bowl of condensed milk and the cheese platter was just a block of sheep's cheese cut into slices. That's it - literally nothing more or less. I could not taste garlic in the soup and although serving some soups cold is a local style, a cool dish really needs to have some flavour. It was OK - not great, not awful, just ok and I'd not order it again. My girlfriend had a chicken almond dish. Chicken quality is rarely superb in Spain - you will get lumps from joints, chewy bits of cartilage and it's never the freshest. But it was also OK and the almond sauce was the best thing they brought us. But the accompanying veg was cheap and tasteless corn, carrots and peas out of can. They opened the can, heated the contents, then put it on the plate. Unflavoured, cheap and hardly traditional. Is this why you go to a restaurant?Estimado cliente,Sentimos que su experiencia no haya sido todo lo placentera que usted esperase. No obstante me gustaría hacer varias puntualizaciones a su comentario. El queso de oveja no es habitual que se acompañe con guarnición, salvo pan y aceite . A no ser que usted así lo indique.Con respecto al pollo con almendras me desconcierta un poco porque no tenemos ningun plato de pollo con Almendras o salsa de almendras en nuestra carta.Con respecto a las verduras ocurre igual, la verdura que acompaña nuestros platos no contiene ni maiz ni guisantes como usted hace referencia en su comentario, por lo tanto, y no quiero ser mal pensado pero quizas visito otro restaurante y se ha confundido al escribir su experiencia?Reciba un cordial saludoEl bodegón de Juan María.
