Really interesting menu with several "non Spanish takes", we shared every course and had a ball. The wine list is very good, we had a bottle on Navarra that was excellent. The service was great and we met some really interesting people when eating there last night. We had mostly fish but the steak on the next table looked superb!!!

We came here twice for tapas while staying in Santa Lucia. The food was absolutely fantastic - incredible value as well given the quality. Would highly recommend!

Last day renting a villa in St Lucia we went here for a late lunch. Superb table at the terrace overlooking the valley and Vejer city. Had jamon, spinach salad and shrimp croquettes as a starter, my wife and I shared a paella and the children had lamb chops for mains. Mango smoothie with cava and caramel pudding for dessert....

Haven't been for a few months as it was closed a lot in the winter. Now I believe it is under new management and the food and service is just as good as it always was. Maybe not quite so personal but we had known the owner and chef before for many years. We shared 3 starters, the goats cheese... More

We visited this restaurant twice for Sunday lunch and it really does have everything. A fantastic menu, exceptional food beautifully presented, professional and friendly staff and a view to die for. We had tried to get in to the other restaurant in this village but it was full. Our lucky day as this place is just what we like and... More

This is a fantastic restaurant to relax with family or friends, confident in the knowledge that the food will be excellent and the service impeccable. The menu was all too good we could hardly choose and we were all delighted. The beef entrecote in black garlic sauce was excellent as were all the dishes. We all fought over the bitter... More

It has been a while since we last visited La Tajea but we were delighted to find that nothing has changed. Unhurried service ,wide ranging and well thought out menu, affordable wine list and great views. Lovely setting both indoors and outside in the garden.

We had a lovely family lunch here with a 7 month old and a 4 year old. Lovely views from the terrace and great food. Good steak, lovely octopus carpaccio, great oxtail. Venison stew was very tasty but slightly over salted for our liking. Waiter was excellent and recommended the house red which was good as well

We visited La Tajea three times during our holiday and loved it - it deserves some real attention from anyone visiting the area. Excellent service, very impressive food and a sensibly priced but sound wine list. Only a few yards from a more publicised restaurant but actually miles ahead on every level. All enhanced by great views. Highly recommended.

Thank Heather H
