Father’s Day Laureles

Sunday June 20th is Father’s Day, and to celebrate, Mark is creating a five course menu for just €15!
So don’t let the old fella down by missing out this year, book early and make this Father’s Day a special one for the dad in your life.
You can also catch the Los Laureles team at the Feria Gastronomica where you can sample some of the fantastic dishes available in this special Almuñécar restaurant. They will be at their stall daily on 11th, 12th and 13th June.

It’s Gastronomy Time

It’s June, and that means it is once again time for the Feria Gastromónica (Gastronomic Fair), in the Majuelo Park in Almuñécar during the weekend of 11th, 12th and 13th.
Those of you who have been to this event before will no doubt be paying another visit, and if this is one of the annual ferias you have not yet visited, then you are in for a treat.

Volunteer Kitchens

My apologies to those of you who volunteered the help with the proposed project to help feed the unemployed. Deathly silence from the Town Hall.

Great Gallinero

Driving out of La Herradura on the N-340 towards Cerro Gordo, I realised I hadn’t been for a meal in the fantastic Gallinero for quite a few months! A colleague of mine has been recently and took her family along, reporting back the food was as good as ever, with chicken dishes to suit every taste.


All you lovers of good food and fine wines are in for a special treat with this place. Situated on the Paseo de la Esplanada in Motril, Álvaro and Manuel have managed to marry tradition and modernity to create a spectacular restaurant.

Super Spar

Have you been down to the Spar shop in Calle Bikini, Almuñécar lately? If not, you really should do. The shelves are jam packed with brilliant items you would only normally see in the UK, although they do have plenty of goods from Scandinavia as well.

Los Laureles Spring

Well, the clocks have gone forward, so it must be officially Spring at last, and as we dare to put all thoughts of that rain behind us, we can now look forward to the fantastic new Spring Menu at Los Laureles.

Mirador Returns

Judging by the amount of people I saw up at Mirrador de Cerro Gordo in La Herradura, there a great many who have been waiting with baited breath for Alix and Kevin to return from their holidays.
They are not being disappointed either as Kevin has come up with a completely new menu for this year, which, having read through thoroughly, does not disappoint!

El Faro Update

Take mum to El Faro for a Mothers’ Day Roast Dinner on 14th March, with a free gift for all ladies. Booking for this is strongly advised.

En Primera Linea

If you haven’t yet tried Restaurante En Primera Linea in La Herradura, then you really should give it a go! They make it so very easy to choose, with several choices of menu and price.
