Situated just around the corner from El Ventoro restaurant and a short drive from Alhama de Granada the Pato Loco (mad duck) specialises in steak meals and they have a large swimming pool for a dip before you eat.

Lunch served from 1.30, they only do lunch. The menu of the day €10 adult 3 course lunch and drinks and use of pool, €5 for kids. The food was great, and lots of it, the pool was huge and there is a small play area for the kids. Lovely location, never busy would recommend

Amazing lunch of the day with a beautiful location and pool. The life guard was particularly helpful in phoning a taxi for us as we couldn't get a mobile signal.

A great pool set in beautiful countryside near Alhama alongside a restaurant of the same name. We haven't tried the restaurant but it looks good when it's not full with a local wedding party. We have regularly used the pool and its one of our favourites. Crispy clear and sparkling clean with fountains at one end and about 33m long,... More

I was participating in the Al Andalus Ultimate Trail and stopped at the Pato Loco after completing the 67 km long day (day 4). I had a steak, and boy was it one awesome steak, well done to the Chef.
