Expert review of Villa Mercedes

A charming, high quality Mediterranean restaurant away from the chaos of San An’s tourist area.

The sun-drenched Villa Mercedes terrace is one of my favourite places to enjoy the three-course set menu lunch in the winter and in summer I love to watch the famous Flamenco performances over a cocktail or three. It really is a breath of fresh air in the area.

Food and drink: 

You’ll find something for everyone on this Mediterranean-tinged menu, including organic, vegan and vegetarian options alongside fresh seafood and mixed grills.

Recommended dishes: 

I like the simplicity of the chicken in mushroom sauce or the rack of lamb, but then I also love the rich flavours of the beef fillet with sliced truffles. Monk fish is the house specialty.

Ambience: 

I like the social vibe at Villa Mercedes – there’s often live entertainment such as famous Flamenco guitarist Paco Fernandez or jazz singers on a specially constructed stage in the garden, so once you’ve finished your meal it’s easy to linger much longer after your meal in the cocktail lounge.

Service: 

Much better than most places in San An, you feel very welcomed at Villa Mercedes rather than just another tourist to be rushed in and out.

Location: 

Away from all the hustle and bustle of the San An tourist trade, Villa Mercedes sits on an old restored colonial style home on the water just opposite the Marina.

Price advice: 

Starters range from 7-15 euros and mains start at just 8 euros for pasta, up to 25 euros for steak.

Tables to book: 

If you plan on settling in for a long, lazy dinner the chill out cabanas are a cool place to retire too after your meal.

Other useful branches: 

Villa Mercedes is part of the hugely successful Mambo family, including Café Mambo, Savannah, Kama Sushi, Mint Lounge and La Cava. See the website for more details.
