This is a smart looking and well decorated restaurant although lacked atmosphere which wasn't helped by the chilly temperature. The service was quite good and the food average.

If you are in Antequerra then this restaurant is a must. Situated in the bull ring complex the Plaza De Toros has a lovely ambience. There was a good varied menu and we were well looked after by Judith, our waitress. Judith is Spanish but speaks good English and was very helpful. Most importantly of course was the food and...

We booked a table for 7.30 and were not surprised to be the only ones in the Restaurant at that time. However we did not expect to spend our entire evening as the only diners! As for the food, I chose the 18 euro set meal which could have been good if the main course had been warmer. My husband... More

Few places given the opportunity to eat in the bullring, on the sand that have trod large as Curro Romero or Jose Tomas and in which the bull has left its mark heavy. Doing so at dusk while tasting the traditional dishes of Antequera, with a soundtrack composed by the voices of Morente and Camar�n and the Vicente Amigo guitar�s may prove to be a gastronomic experience?.Which could well have become a mere tourist attraction has been transformed into a point of reference in the city and all thanks to the variety and quality of their products. Restorer from 16 years, partner in the bullfighter Francisco Rivera, Francisco Martinez took the reins of restaurant next to a team that worthy are to assess their efforts and sacrifices, to catapult to which today is, without doubt, one of the best, and famous restaurants within and outside the national territory.If for some tastes the traditional cuisine can be boring, the Menu of the restaurant Plaza de Toros la Espuela gives you a change in his presentation in a menu. Under titles such as Lances del Mediterraneo del Faraon de Camas, Tercios de Rivera en las dehesas Andaluzas, Caprichos del Maestro Curro or Cucharas del Maestro Paula -all in clear reference to figures of bullfighting, presented the dishes encountered in the stove of professionals that form the kitchen equipment.If diner at the coso has its clear charm, do not within him expectation. The inner dining crimson shielding the tables of the diners among small archs decorated with pictures and tables of thematic bullfighting and flamenco. Among them, stresses a picture of Enrique Morente singing in the restaurant in the holding of baptism of his grandson, Curro, son of Estrella Morente and Javier Conde. Harvey Friend dinner in the coso antequeran while ran The Bridge of San Luis Rey (Mary McGuckian, 2004) in the city and that Madonna made a stop in the plaza de toros for running a spot whose picture of the shooting is found in the area of the bar. Also corners, dedicated to the great figures of bullfighting that have passed by the house, as Curro Romero, Rafael de Paula, Antonio Chenel Antonete, Enrique Ponce, Francisco Rivera, The Cordobes, the Maestro Manzanares, among other?.In a city whose gastronomic history has not been drawn throughout the match possible, the extensive and complete charter of the restaurant Plaza de Toros la Espuela summarizes the culinary tradition of Antequera and part of the Andalusia and Spain. For those who do not need more that good raw material, but who like to enjoy places with solera, for them, the Plaza de Toros de Antequera left their doors open?.
