Situated in the corner of a pretty plaza in the Old Town. Food usual fare, average quality. First glass of wine was fab but waiter couldn't seem to give me the same second time around and wasn't particularly interested in sorting it.

We stopped for a coffee while walking around the Old Town. The cafe looks over a pretty flower filled park, with the Castillo being right alongside it.

This restaurant is nicely situated near the castle. The outside terrace is the nicest one in Priego. The service is okay and the food also. We have to say that the fish and seafood we ate here was of excellent quality.

Here you will find many different tasty traditional dishes including fish and goat. The service was impeccable. At one point my knife fell to ground, and the waiter nearly caught it before it hit the ground. Shady hacienda style.

Beautiful location and a cooling space on an otherwise warm day. Service was friendly and the food was tasty and reasonably priced.
