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.

TOP DISH: ‘Karaage’ Japanese deepfried chicken,marinated in garlic and soy sauce served with wasabi mayonnaise & sweet teriyaki glaze

TOP TIPPLE: The wine list changes regularly so ask for the specials

TOP DOLLAR: Around 35 euros a head including wine

TOP TIP: Make sure you plan your trip around a fantastic local country walk or a visit to the white village of Casares

TOP KIP: Plenty of nice rural spots around and for a big splurge you have five-star Finca Cortesin just up the road
