My husband had the pork tenderloin stuffed with ham, with a raspberry sauce, a very unique dish that was absolutely delicious. I had vegetable gratin, which again was beautifully presented, unusual and delicious, as was the salad we shared. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant clean. We ate on the terrace. We only spoke Spanish to the staff so cannot comment on their level of English. I spoke with Raquel, a young talented chef who creates amazing variations of traditional local fare. The food was slightly more expensive than the neighbouring restaurants but definitely worth it.

Sorry, el Fogon de Raquel, but i must give you your first 'terrible' - for your service.
We sat down and waited for the waiter to take our order. He walked past us multiple times, totally ignoring us. Eventually he asked us for our order. We asked for wine, and a cold dessert.
Ten minutes later, the wine arrived. Fifteen minutes later (note - 35 minutes after sitting down) we left the cash for the wine, and left.
The food on the tables around us looked delicious. But the waiter was surly and arrogant. Dining is about the overall experience. This waiter completely spoiled our day.

It seems there are very few restaurants open on a Thursday in March in this village but fortunately for us this one was.
When we arrived the place was empty but soon a few locals came in to drink at the bar.
The food and wine were very good all served by a a very friendly and efficient waitress.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you visit Capileira.

We only stopped for coffee after eating elsewhere, but the food looked good. The service and coffee were excellent.
