We stopped off for lunch, we spent a couple of hours here. A family run business. It is very casual, very relaxing and the food is first class. In fact we revisited it a second time in the same week.

We loved our lunch here: a warm welcome from the family owners was followed by an unfussy, delicious, good value meal. Don't be put off by its proximity to the railway line as there's only one slow train per hour, and that's at peak times....More

Home made Spanish food, the best I have had in Spain. I visit quite often. For sure this is a 5 star bar and highly recommended. If you ever visit El chorro call in.

El Rancho is not easy to find, it is off the main Alora-El chorro road in Las mellizas. It is a Venta, and as such offers no frills in decor. Closed on Mondays. When you do find it, you can enjoy typically Spanish country food,...More
