We noticed an ad in local paper and decided to find this place. Not easy but worth the time to find it. Had steak and corvina both made to perfection. The view is outstanding and device friendly and informative about the general area. Prices fair.

This is a must go. The location is beautiful, kind of lost in the countryside (bumpy roads :)) but once you arrived the view is breathtaking. Nice people and great local food.

I've returned here at least once a year for the last five or six. The views on a clear day are unbeatable, and the food has always been excellent.

I was recommended this place by a Spanish lady who works in a Madrid market, so the pressure was on for me to be impressed. It had been very 'bigged up'. I went here for my birthday lunch during a trip through the south with...More
