This tricky to find restaurant is well worth a visit. Or two.

Without a doubt this is one of my favourite restaurants in the area. With its deep red façade, balconies bursting with hanging baskets, big wooden double doors and terracotta roof, it’s been styled as a traditional Spanish country mansion. The masterful cuisine is as beautiful and grandiose as the building.

Food and drink

Food-wise you’re in extremely safe hands with the award-winning chef and owner, José Ramos, at the helm. Homely Andalusian fayre is given a 21st-century, elegant twist here. The assorted grilled fish and seafood platter is always a winner - and is as fresh as can be, with the local fishermen bringing the ingredients to the restaurant each day.

Ambience

There’s a kind of celebratory atmosphere as the guests, mainly Spaniards from the north and well-heeled foreign residents, know they’re enjoying some of the best food around. I always try and get a table in the beautiful, flower-ladened terrace as the tables are not quite so close together.

Service

The waiting staff work very hard to make sure you have a good meal, but sometimes it can get very busy and can be a little slow.

Location

It’s not well sign-posted and can be difficult to find, especially at night. Head towards Hotel El Paraiso and it’s just 100 metres from there.

Price advice

Expect to pay around 32 euros a head for a good meal with wine.
