A delightful little town. At first sight seem to be far too many shops catering for the tourists, but all the merchandise appears to be of good quality. Wonderfully clean air at this altitude. Although mid November, quite warm enough to sit out in the...More

A nice outdoor dining area near the church. Very popular. We intended to have a drink only but ended up with having the Menu del Dia which was excellent value and nicely presented. The service was very good and the waiters very friendly and welcoming....More

Had lunch here. Menu del dia, 11 euros a pop, including drinks. Good food, entertainment provided by bagpipe player on one table. Good service, busy with locals, always a good sign.

Even though it's nothing special, we almost always have a quick stop at El Tilo, for a simple lunch, such as a "sandwich vegetal" or in the evening for a pre-dinner drink. The mixers are relatively cheap, so it makes sense to have a drink...More

Nice little restaurant with great patio located in the middle of Capileira. Portion size are huge and can probably be shared for people with less appetite. The grilled meats are good their meatball specialties is also interesting. Prices are fair and service is good.
