Restaurante Cantueso

Dine in style in a traditional Spanish Finca with exceptional sea, lake, and mountain views. Relaxing inside or outside on our Terrace you can enjoy Mediterranean food at its best.

Reviewed By Dennis81 - Utrecht, The Netherlands

Good food which is freshly made and have good proportions. Nice service. Beautiful location. Especially if the weather is good enough to sit outside. Price quality is ok. Stayed in their cottages for 11 days and havent found a better restaurant in the Andalucia area (sevilla, Granada, Cordoba and malaga). Would highly recommend it if you're nearby or have to drive some miles for it. You won't be dissapointed.
Keep up the good work!

Taberna de Flores

Reviewed By snapdecisions - Ipswich, United Kingdom

A restaurant behind a bar near the Church in Colmenar, this provides food of a very high standard, a decent selection though not an excessively long menu. As noted elsewhere, puddings are good which is unusual in this part of Spain. Service is attentive and helpful and cannot be faulted. I recommend this very highly and well above more well-known places in the general area.

We didn't get here on our first visit to Comares two years ago. That was our loss. We loved it so much the first time we were back within a couple of days for more. The local summer soup was delicious anthem Their take on fish and chips, and lamb cutlets were our choice both times (we swapped round second time). They also had a home made tiramisu to die for. The view, as other reviews also mention, is astonishingly good. Prices don't break the bank either, so highly recommended.

Hotel Restaurante Atalaya

Reviewed By Frank R - Washington, United Kingdom

Returned after a 2 year gap. Another good visit. This time having two different local soups to start. Both totally different both very tasty. Pigs cheeks and lamb chops for main were even tastier. Particularly the pigs cheeks. Possibly even better than beef cheeks. Still very few people in. One strange happening was that the local people through in the bar were avidly watching 'Pawn Stars' in Spanish of course. Very strange. One of our programmes we watch at home. I recommend this place for the taste of Spain. Definitely not your normal English/German go to place.

We stopped here for lunch whilst visiting the village. We had olives, tuna salad and an iberico ham platter to share. The food was fresh and tasty and our waiter was very friendly and with a sense of humour presenting me with three olives on a plate with garnish when I ordered olives. The restaurant and toilet was also very clean compared to one along the road we popped into first and promptly left. Recommend for lunch or dinner was also popular with locals on Saturday afternoon when we visited.

Ok so, you don’t expect to get good fish and chips in Spain, at least it’s not what you would expect, well I was wrong, the fish and chips with mushy peas was fantastic, unfortunately I had no room for spotted dick with custard! Great lunch, thank you.

Table Mountain Comares

Lovely restaurant, tucked away in the small hamlet of Los Ventorros, Comares. Moorish ruins, stunning views, wonderful food and a welcoming vibe. Many people who come as guests end up buying property in our area. Yes, we are that friendly :) We serve a delicious selection of traditional Spanish dishes, including Secreto Ibérico and paellas every Sunday, and international cuisine including our famous chicken satay and vegetarian rendang! We have many vegetarian options because one of our owners is a vegetarian. We also have our own craft beer, La Cabra Azul. And if you want to stay the night, we even have a studio apartment. See you at Table Mountain!

As soon as our friends mentioned the word 'Rendang', we jumped at the opportunity to go to Table Mountain. Rendang is one of my favourite Malaysian/Indonesian meals. Unfortunately we didn't get to try the Rendang on this occasion but had the chicken satay instead -...MoreThank you so much for your comments,looking forward to your return visit to try our Rendang ,hope you had a safe journey home all the best from Team TM.
