I highly recommend this place. I came here twice during a visit to the area for some hiking.

I'm very surprised it is not rated higher. I read many of the other reviews in Spanish (I'm an American living in Spain), and some are obvious fakes by the same person, others are people complaining about being charged extra when taking up an outdoor table and only having a beer, or *gasp* having to wait during high season.

Anyways, my experience here was a 9/10 on both visits. The service was quick and friendly even though we were a large group of 11. The ambience is lovely on the terrace outdoors, it's right next to a stream and you can hear the water. The grilled meats are FANTASTIC. Other dishes and vegetables all fresh and correctly prepared. The bread was very good too as were the olives. The prices are also reasonable.

Enjoy!

Thank Charles R

This Restaurant/Tapas Bar is everything the four star hotel next door should be !
Great/happy/prompt service, excellent menu, Mhou four star beer (the best of the Spanish choice's) and a pleasant surprise of a bill!

Go for the set menu. Lots of choice and the food is delicious. Easy to get to and well worth a visit.

We call it that because it's hit and miss as to whether it will be open after making the walk. When it is the experience is magical, often so that the next day when we might find it closed we wonder did we imagine the night before ....
The food is great and the people who work there are that bit special, going so far as to cook up patatas bravas from scratch one evening when we were starving after the walk up to the old castle. Memorable indeed. A gorgeous spot, i think the best (and there are some good tapas bars here) in Lanjaron. If you can find it open that is .... but then, we travel out of season, maybe that's what it is.

The restaurant is a quite small typical tavern with wood oven. they offer a good variety of dishes typical of the Alpujarra.
