Famous for its superb fish and a firm favourite with people visiting from Madrid, Las Rejas is a MUST at least once during your stay at El Aguilon. No view, but the superb fish far outweighs that!
Recommendations: gambas al ajillo, almejas, croquetas de choco, choco en su tinta,
BB recommends: 'Gambas al ajillo', 'almejas', croquetas de choco, choco en su tinta.
3 mins’ drive Facinas : Dinner starts 8.30pm Closed Tuesday

Best meat restaurant in the whole area, so if you enjoy a good steak and hearty Andalucian cooking in cosy surroundings, el Nene with its extensive meat menu, barbecue and very reasonable prices is a winner! Family owned, they raise all their own meat and grow their own veg so if your Spanish is good, you can ask the full history of the meat from the waiter. NB the portions are HUGE, and delicious!
BB recommends: Solomillo, Carillada, Rabo de Toro and for the children 'Pinchito de Cordero' (lamb pinchito) . They have a particularly nice wine 'Protos' which is very reasonably priced.
El Jardin de califa
30 mins’ drive Vejer : Open 1 - 4pm & 7.30 - 11pm
Our favourite restaurant in Vejer. Divine Moroccan & Middle Eastern food and great service in a 16th century building with stone vaulted dining rooms and a lush palm-filled courtyard. Recommended by the Michelin Guide.
During the summer months arrive early or you might lose your table
Also open all day for teas, coffees and pastries
