One of the most easily accessible mountain gems near the Costa del Sol, Arroyo Hondo manages to combine authentic Andalucian cooking with modern, creative cuisine.
Run by Christian Robson-Burrell and his Japanese wife Noriko this decade-old restaurant sits in a stunning location with soaring mountain scenery on each side.
With open fires for winter and a shady outdoor terrace for summer, it is the perfect all-round spot for a family lunch or romantic date.
Walks go from the door and the pretty mountain town of Casares – one of the most photographed white villages of Andalucia - is just up the road.
A talented chef, Christian honed his skills in London and the Far East.
The menu is changed weekly and he uses mostly seasonal produce. With an emphasis on quality dishes, with a twist, the menu might include such delights as braised oxtail with Parmesan gnocci with white truffle oil and king prawn tempura with a Wakame salad and Ponzu dressing.
You might find Tempura soft shell crab with ‘nam jim’ dressing and a sea weed salad.
They also offer plenty of game through the winter, as well as dishes like loin of venison wellington with jamon serrano and mushroom duxelle.
