This restaraunt is some 900 meters up from sea level. It has indoor/outdoor tables. The views are breathtaking. Menu is good. Food is excellent and plenty of it and NOT expensive. This is one for a revisit. It is a friendly comfortable restaurant. Quick to provide our orders. Toilets are clean. Reasonable car park space. It's a must! 🍽️ 📷

Odd mix of Spanish and German but a great place to cycle up to from parcent. See if you can beat the 17 minute record. Loads of parking for walks up to the top.

Enjoyed a lovely meal here overlooking some fantastic views back towards the coast. A good hearty meal of substantial portions at reasonable value. We sat outside on the terrace in the sun but we could have chosen to sit inside next to the fire. All very cosy. Can't wait for our next visit :-)

A really very pleasant lunch. Good food, good singer, good wine, smiling faces, people from several countries, cosy, amazing views. My wild boar stew was so tender it literally fell off the fork and was full of flavour. If there wasn't the drive down I'd have happily sat there for ages.

Apple strudel, great coffee and stunning views. Welcoming service, including for the dog. Roaring fire indoors, definitely would go back for a meal

If you want to eat good food with an amazing view visit this restaurant. Its a winding drive or cycle up to the top of the mountain but well worth it. The food is mostly German but very authentic and enjoyable. It does serve a variety of things including good seafood too. Really worth a visit. The white sausage and... More

They are probably trading on the amazing views because the food is generally disappointing and a rather odd mix for rural Spain! Who would have expected Greek salad? I only wanted a light snack so it was my poor choice I guess. Tinned sweetcorn and a smothering of balsamic vinegar was just weird.....My husband's wild boar was clearly a better... More
