Restaurante la tertulia

Reviewed By Oldmanwillow

I hadn’t been to La Tertulia before. I was very pleasantly surprised by the meal we had there today. Sadly, it’s about to close for the winter so I should give you my opinion. We were looking for good meat, and we got it. A chuleton de vaca retinta, well cooked and with excellent accompaniment. The chips were excellent. I could go into greater detail but there is no reason to do so. The service was first class. We’ll probably be back, even though this restaurant is a bit far from where we normally eat. In the summer months we would probably avoid it. It’s nice to see how many relatively new restaurants are continually cropping up, with offerings that reflect the splendid improvement in quality and imaginativeness of Spanish cuisine.

AROHAZ Restaurante

Reviewed By Oldmanwillow

We were actually aiming to eat in another restaurant nearby in Zahora but there was no way to park. I don’t usually review a restaurant after one visit but they’re closing tomorrow for the “winter” so I won’t get back there for quite some time. To start with, the service was efficient and friendly. We shared a falafel for the first course. For the second, my friend ate some solomillo which had been marinaded in something or other. He was very pleased with it. I had the caballas, chunks of marinaded mackerel with a tasty mayonnaise and red pepper jam. Mackerel is not a very highly- regarded fish but it has an excellent flavour. When you don’t have to separate it from the bones, but can concentrate on the flavour, and enjoy the good that the omega 3 is doing you, it’s a no-brainer. In short, a very enjoyable meal. We’ll be back next year, maybe, though out of season again.

La Bruma de Zahora

Reviewed By Tracy D

I went to the opening party of this beachside restaurant in March, and it was wonderful - a delicious selection of tapas and drinks and friendly staff and visitors. I went by myself as my boyfriend was working and stayed all day chatting to new friends. I enjoyed lovely, crispy tortillitas de camarones (local speciality), salmon ceviche, breads, local meats and dips - all fresh and flavourful and artfully presented. The decor inside is clean, fresh and quirky (see photos), and the patios are great for enjoying the balmy evenings with a partner or friends and family. If you're spending the day on Zahora beach you might not realise how close this is, as it doesn't front the beach itself - but it's only a few steps up past the Sajorami and well worth a visit.Thank you very much for the fabulous and detailed description you have made of La Bruma!! We are very happy to know that your opinion about our food and our facilities is so good!! Thank you very much for sharing your experience here and recommending our restaurant. We hope to see you again very soon !!

Restaurant with charm, in a privileged place of the caños de meca with a traditional cuisine with products of first quality. Where you can enjoy a good meal or a mojito watching the sunset.

Simple quick fare and good parking. Access to the beach and pilgrimage to Trafalgar. Pulpo was fine . Great being out in the sun in the garden.

La Traina Restaurante

Dirección familiar, cuidado y mimo en los detalles, todo en un entorno encantador con grandes jardines, tarima de madera, y siempre manteniendo la esencia de esta zona rural.

Reviewed By mandotim

This is a delightful semi outdoor restaurant, under a canopy in a lovely garden. The restaurant is busy, and well organised by friendly, attentive but not fussy staff. The ambience is relaxed, and the focus is very much on the food. Starters show plenty of choice; we had superb croquetas and a plate of tempura anchovies. Be warned; the plate of anchovies is massive, and plenty for two as a starter or even a light lunch! Given the area, the red tuna is a must try, and a whole section of the menu is devoted to this local delicacy. We were not disappointed; serving tuna as a tartare or sashimi style demands the freshest and highest quality fish, and that’s exactly what we got. Tartare was served on a guacamole style base, and was subtly marinaded. The sashimi had been seared very quickly with a coating of sesame and poppy seeds, then served with wasabi and a soy dip. Both were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Sharing from each other’s plates in the Spanish style is expected and encouraged, and we took full advantage!There is a small range of desserts, again, beautifully prepared and served. We can recommend the cheesecake with fig compote(sounds a bit ‘ho hum’, but not when it’s as well done as this!), and my personal star of the show, ‘la Brena ‘. This is a house dish made from local ingredients, and I’ve never tasted anything like it. It’s a mousse, but with some really unusual textures and flavours, and definitely not to be missed. We were watching other dishes coming out from the charcoal-grill equipped kitchen, and thinking ‘I want to try that’. We’re going back....

Castillejos

Reviewed By Goonergirl62

Went here whilst visiting with Spanish friends and on their recommendation. The first thing is we did not have a reservation but they were really friendly and helpful and said if we could hang around the bar for about 10-15 minutes, they could put two tables together for us (we were six). Service attentive, efficient and friendly without being over the top. We ordered a load of dishes for the middle of the table so we could share - we had a few starters and one main dish (doubled) as we had had a big lunch. Everything was freshly prepared and well presented. The staff are young and whilst professional there is a bit of a party atmosphere about the place which was fun. Absolutely recommend this place.

Restaurante Hostal Los Pinos

Reviewed By Gail_Elise

Located close to camping location on a main road. Dining room spartan but big seating area outside.Shrimp/gamba appetizer was served but with cold sauce. Whole plate was reheated and then the gambas were overcooked. Husband found the octopus very good, with various colorful and tasteful sauces.Grilled fish was good but not great. It was served with a small half of a potato with a dollop of sour cream or similar and a few overcooked veggies. Bread was what seems to be common in the area, a roll and not so fresh. Was served a different tap beer after having a different bottled beer. That shouldn't have happened. This was the 4th or 5th restaurant we visited and the others were quite a bit better. Service was good but we were the first there so there wasn't a lot of customers to serve. The staff were friendly.

La Brena

Reviewed By Cymru_on_tour

The food, service and relaxed, casual atmosphere here are wonderful. We stayed at the La Brena hotel for a week and ate in the hotel’s restaurant three times. The tuna dishes are very good and well worth trying. The wines are excellent, too, and offer tremendous value for money. If you visit Los Canos de Meca, give this place a try!

La Laja

Reviewed By Vanessa M

We made a reservation to have lunch, and the manager was very kind and had the perfect table for us. When we arrived, the table was located at an excellent place, away from direct sun and wind, so we could enjoy our meal.We ordered a banana guacamole with vegetable chips, goat cheese/asparagus risotto with quail meatballs, and also local fish that had a zesty marinade. Absolutely delicious! Waitresses were very professional. The restaurant and bathroom very clean. I had the pleasure to meet the manager who made the reservation and she was also the chef that cooked our amazing meals! Highly recommended, fair prices and excellent quality.Muchísimas gracias por su visita y por sus palabras, para nosotros es un placer recibirles y hacer que su paso por La Laja sea de lo más agradable posible.
