Been here four times now during our month’s stay with two different sets of friends and it never fails to please! The food is beautifully cooked and presented and if the best quality. The selection of wines is very good and the specials of the...day are well worth tasting. The turbot and the sole, served with garlic butter are gorgeous, and the fillet steak with pepper sauce is exceptional. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the atmosphere is very welcoming - I love the decor! We will be going back again before the month is out!More

The food was phenomenal and my ribs was perfect. If you have kids then there is even a kids menu. The Waiters were all very friendly and puddings were also delicious. This restaurant was the best restaurant we’ve been to so far in Spain. I...recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves to have a peaceful and fun night with friends and family.More

We have been to El Legado twice now, once as a large group (14) and once with a small group of friends (6). On both occasions they excelled themselves producing excellent freshly cooked rustic style food with superb flavours and generous portions. service is sharp...and was particularly good for the large group with dishes coming out quickly to allow everyone to eat together. Diners can choose from a good Menu del dia or from the a la carte menu, vegetarians are well catered for with a respectable choice of dishes. House wines were very good, you will pay a bit more if you choose a brand such as vina sol but overall prices are good.More

A wonderful experience whenever we come, El Legado is a warm, welcoming restaurant serving good, well priced food. Plenty of little touches, from the carrots and olives as soon as you sit down to the delicious liqueur at the end. You will not be disappointed...if visit here.More
