The atmosphere in the garden is perfect. Two fires were lit for the evening, and all tables were set with candles. Service and food were both excellent - not much English is spoken. Happy to say that the restaurant accepted Visa, which is not common,...More

Off the main highway, but worth the search. It's quaint but a great menu in a cozy atmosphere. They weren't ready for us but poured us wine and had us sit by a fire outside...magical!

La Olada was our first dinner on our trip, and it was special (likely our favorite of the trip). The setting is magical - special yet very relaxed. We'll definitely return!

We visited this restaurant every night we were in Jose. It's not in the centre of the village, but close to where we were staying. All items on the menu were great. Lagostinos (large shrimps/lobster taste) were my favourite. A must for dinner!
