This is the first time I've reviewed a restaurant twice but I think in this instance it is definitely warranted. The new location is the third one I have visted in the last 5yrs of following this family team around Orgiva but believe me it has always been well worth it.
I bet the locals can't believe their luck at having such an exceptional quality restaurant in their small town.
My wife and I opted for the incredibly low priced 3 course Menu del Dia lunch. Starters comprised a beautifully presented Greek / Potato salad and a mildly spiced cous cous with chickpea and diced tomato. It should have come with an egg but sadly it was missing but no worries it was still very tasty. We shared this course by having half each. The mains were large portions of pork lomo stuffed with a boletus puree, french fries and subtle sauce drizzle was sublime. Another half and half shared dish were the desserts of profiterole and the thinnest of crystalised melon slices accompanied by a mouth refreshing citrus sorbet. A bottle of a Protus crianza Ribera del Durro all for the under 40€ was as usual was great value for money.
The friendly. efficient service and warm welcome is what makes El Limonero something special. One final comment, the menu del dia changes for each day that the open, another bonus is that they offer a 3 or 4 choices for every course.
