We adore this family run restaurant. The quality of the food is consistently excellent and beautifully presented by caring, attentive staff. Their outside terrace is a must in the summer, plenty of sun canopies and breathtaking views and they can accommodate large numbers of diners , we were a group of eleven and were seated comfortably, highly recommended!💝💕💖🍷 xx

Open air seating available in beautiful surroundings, great menu and great staff. It's a must visit, but you need a car to get there

Beautiful location great staff and fabulous food. The steak is fabulous and the pork knuckle was also excellent. Great daily menu as well as a La carte. Lovely live music on the 2 evenings we were there. Would recommend to any carnivore!!

This hidden gem is hidden in the la Cala hills. Worth a taxi up as the food is excellent and the view over the hills breathtaking. Been coming here for 5yrs + I proposed to my partner here so always a special place. Love the 600g ribeye, prawns etc great food and wine for nothing. See you in August.

What a find this was - slightly off the main drag but an incredibly warm welcome, service with a smile from all, outstanding food and very reasonably priced. All four of our party were that impressed, we returned the following night and had another great meal.

We had not been here for a couple of years but nothing changed, where else can you get a 3 course menu for 20euros which as fillet steak in the main courses. 25 euros on music night Thursday and Sunday but worth the extra as singer was very good. A bit out of town on the road to La cala... More

Stopped because we saw the sign on the road. Had Gambas Pill Pill as a starter and a lovely steak fresh from the Barbecue with a lovely desert. Friendly staff and moderate prices for the quality you get. We will always come back here.

Just down the road from the La Cala resort. Superb restaurant with many covers but plenty of busy staff so service was excellent. Wide choice of menu but I would recommend you book as on both visits the restaurant was full. Says it all.

Visited El Jinette restaurant for the first time last week. Family of four, three of us ordered ordered steaks and the other ordered Salmon. Food was fabulous and service very good. Friendly staff who were very welcoming. Nice atmosphere. Looking forward to visiting again in the summer.
