I went to the bar with my family. I ate T-bone steak and cold cocacol. The service was cool and the costumers were happy. I ate a brownie with cream. There were a lot of people. I recomended this restaurant it is very cool.

Food here is the best the local kitchen can manage, especially in meat. In the evening at the weekends, the place will turn into a Flamingo bar, often with life music, and mainly locals, if you do not master Spanish, you will most likely not feel it is a place for you..

Our first time in this very elegant restaurant. Outside it was a chilly January evening, the restaurant was pleasantly warm on entry - a pre-requisite for me eating out that night. We were greeted by the most charming waitor, Jose, and shown to our table. He immediately gave us the menus and went off to get bread and lovely tapas.... More

We were recommended this restaurant whilst on holiday by a local shop keeper. "Do you like steak? " he asked. Meson El Caballo was a fantastic discovery. The decor of the restaurant was of a traditional Spanish Style. Very colourful but relaxing. The Chateaubriand was truly the best steak me and my husband had ever tasted. So much so that... More

We were able to do a comparison between this restaurant and Poncho's (just around the corner) during our recent stay and ordered similar meals to compare. This restaurant aims to deliver "fine dining", however, it doesn't quite hit the mark. The staff are fairly attentive and the choices are varied and good if not slightly overpriced as a whole. The...

We were the only English people having dinner as other diners all Spanish which is usually a good sign when in Spain. Four of us had a variety of tapas to start and then the chef prepared us a very rich sea food rice which was delicious. The wine is stored in the largest wine cooler I have seen and... More

Excellent food in a superb location with perfect ambiance! We were attracted by the outdoor dining area, the first we had seen with glass chandeliers! Once seated, the service was quick and friendly and the food excellent and surprisingly reasonable priced for such a relatively "up market" restaurant.

The restaurant has moved a couple of times but the ownweship is the same, we have enjoyed the excellent meals for over 25 years. Always best quality and nice service. Try the baked lamb or my favorite Chateaubriand , stick with the house wine, it is always excellent. Prices are not cheap, but very reasonable.
