Fodor's Expert Review Montecruz

$$ Aracena Spanish

The downstairs bar here serves simple tapas, but it's the upstairs restaurant that makes it worth a visit. The rustic dining room is decorated with wall paintings and hunting trophies, and the kitchen serves regional produce and dishes–-try the gurumelos salteados con jamón y gambas (a type of mushroom stir-fried with ham and shrimp), lomo de jabalí (boar tenderloin), or the outstanding ham; chestnut stew is the standout for dessert. Vegetarian and organic menus are available.
