Fodor's Review

If you've done any traveling on the Costa's main A7 highway, you've doubtless spotted this place, perched high in the pine-clad hills above the village—the views from the dining room stretch all the way to Africa on a clear day. What you'll find on the menu are simple dishes made with the freshest ingredients, and the restaurant and tapas (from €2.50) bar are both popular with a sophisticated Spanish clientele. Highlights include traditional stews such as fabes con almejas (beans with clams), and steaks grilled over oak wood embers. There's an extensive wine list.
