The hugest pork chop I've ever seen, dry and not very pleasant. My other half had tripe, which very strangely,had bones in it., and wasn't nice to eat. One of our party had Gambas pil pil, which looked good, but it hardly mountain food.

First visit this evening- will definitely be returning!!! Made very welcome in front of cosy log fire-food and hospitality without complaint. Although we were last to leave, no pressure on us- very enjoyable evening.

We happened on this by accident and decided to stop for tapas and a drink. We were not disappointed . 4 tapas dishes and 2 bottles of sparkling water (no wine as we were driving) cost only 6,40 euro. Staff were friendly. A really lucky find. We will revisit.

Venta La Parra was the first restaurant we dined in when we first visited this beautiful area. We have since moved to Alcaucin to live and been going to Venta La Parra ever since. Always good food a great atmosphere and a friendly welcome from Antonia and his family.

Found this lovely venta whilst travelling around the area. As it is early in the season it was very quiet, with only one family arriving later. It is a typical Andalucian restaurant, clean and spacious. The dining room, at the rear has an open roof and spectacular views to the mountains. I was on my own and ordered an ensaladitto... More
