We have been to El Molinos on several occasions, usually during the summer. We have made a late visit to Orgiva this year and so sat in the indoor area complete with roaring fire. Tapas is tasty and menu del dia (Monday to Friday 1.00-4.00) is excellent - large portions and good variety. We really like it and the service... More

Went to El Molino a number of times both for lunch and in the evening. Always enjoyed the food, good portions and well cooked. Good atmosphere in bar with locals, expats and tourists . Saw a couple of football matches there as well to my sons delight. Good place. Visit if in town.

I ate here twice in the week I was staying in Orgiva. The food was good, and big portions. A lively place with a covered terrace at the front and a more formal dinning (for Spain!) room at the back. Good selection of tapas offered when you had just a drink and the menu reflected local produce, including wine. Open... More

Visited several times, mostly for a beer and the excellent tapa but also dined here. The food was of good quality (excellent steak) and good value, but even better was the friendly and efficient service, even on a very busy Saturday night nothing was too much trouble and we never felt rushed.

Situated on the main road to Lanjaron but away from the majority of the town's other bar/restaurants you can easily pass the double door entrance without noticing it. However go through the entrance way and you come into a large courtyard bar area with numerous tables. It is generally uncovered although pull-over canvass covers can be used as a roof... More

The food was good. To be honest, I found the food in and around Orgiva was generally OK to good, generally I find Spanish food to be good to outstanding. But we had a great evening at El Molino. It's like an open courtyard, with a big bar and draws in all sorts of clientele. Great service. But we were... More

We had lunch and drinks here a couple of times. Every time I bought a beer I got a plate of decent Tapas - not haut quisine but decent, tasty and filling. We ate at the bar where the food was straightforward but none the worse for that. A nice cool courtyard sheltered from the sun and from the bustle... More
