Typical "tapas" place! A lot of variety, the wines are excellent and not expensive. The place is cosy and very nicely decorated.

We found very few places open on a Monday evening in Aracena. Most of the town is completely unspoilt by tourism, inevitably the area by the caves hasn't entirely escaped! It was therefore with some concern we set off for this restaurant, whilst food and...More
Excellent service, excellent food, excellent wine, our waiter Hugo could not have been more helpful, thanks so much.
My friends and I went to Montecruz twice during our weekend stay in Aracena. We were a group of 5 with 3 vegetarians and a coeliac and the staff were really patient and accommodating, as well as being very friendly. The food was something else!...More

Recommended by our hostess at villa Rosillo and absolutely fantastic. Good simple food with a twist of sophistication and great service from Hugo. We'd like to take this restaurant home with us. And the house red is delicious. Enjoy!
we've eaten inside and on the street. The service is good in either place. The cuisine is good and varied and typical Andalucian Spanish. Its a restaurant to sit and talk, eat when you want and enjoy the ambience.
