We found the bar at the end of our walk from Benaojan to Jimera de libar and enjoyed it so much we returned to have lunch another day after visiting the Cueva de la Pileta. Great range of burgers and tapas for family dining outdoors. Helpful tips about the area from the hosts. Superb.

We called in here as a group for lunch. The actual bar is tatty, dark and is decorated with beer bottles. The outside seating is nothing special, just tables and chairs. They appear to specialise in burgers, the choices of which are French with garlic, onions and Provence herbs, Mexican with chilli, spinach and carrot, spices, English with bacon, cheddar... More

Sorry you did not enjoy your visit here, although I am a bit confused about your comments. From what I have seen in Spain tables and chairs are quite common outside bars. You said that the taste of the burgers ( which we specialize in) was not really special. Which one did you try? Sorry if the toilet was dirty,... More

An excellent stop-off after walking the trail from Benaojan Estacion to Jimera Estacion. Owners Paul and Synnove run a fun and relaxed bar that offers more than 50 brands of beer! Paul also cooks an amazing burger ... ordinary beef, or Greek, American, English, Mexican, Indian and French. Allioli frequently holds special music events, and is notable for its annual... More

For a Brit on a walking trip this was like finding an oasis; good food and an outstanding range of well made beer. I really wished I didn't have to drive and have sampled the whole range. In the end I sampled an excellent IPA made by a microbrewery in Norway; things don't get mush stranger than that.

We found Bar Allioli while on our way back to Gaucin from Cueva de la Pileta (Pileta Caves) We tried the town of Benaojan but since it was a Sunday during siesta time nothing was open. We tried our luck in Jimera de Libar and thankfully Bar Allioli was open. We found a table on the patio with a gorgeous... More

If you decide to follow the downhill path from Benaojan to Jimera de Libar alongside the railway line and Guadiaro river, this is where you end up. What better place to relax whilst waiting for your train back, or even if you left your car here, you can have lunch before returning home. Paul is an afficionado of beers -... More
