    San Benito's: Busy andalucian restaurant in perfect setting

    The Restaurant

    This is one of my favourite places to eat in this area. Always busy (mainly with Spanish), consistently great food and friendly staff.

    Set in an old cortijo with attractive outside courtyard and a converted chapel which has been turned into a museum. (and if you're renovating an old property over here, a great salvage yard hidden around the back!).

    Although dishes are local, they have a classy twist and are tastily presented. This is the best place to try all the local fare - it's cooked to perfection. And, if the duck is on as a special - try it! I've eaten duck all over the world and this place's is the best :-)

    Cortijo Carrillo: Traditional restaurant set in the hills

    by Senoritasmile Written Apr 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    15 mins outside of Antequera, in a village called Cartaojal, is a lovely, old Cortijo thats renowned for its roasted meats - lamb, suckling pig etc...the Spanish travel up from Malaga city to sunday lunch here. (you do have to pre-order your roasted meats or else take pot luck with what's available)

    It's not very big, about 12 tables, although there is a pretty, outdoor patio where tables are laid when sunny.

    We were recommended to try the chef's tasters as a starter - (degustacion) which is like a spanish meze, 6 or 7 little dishes to try, which were great - they've been different every time we've visited. The owner is a wine buff too, so kept bringing us little tipples to try at no cost.

    A reasonably priced place within typical rural spanish surroundings.

    La Espuela: A uniquely located restaurant

    Entrance
    1 more image

    La Espuela is set within the famous bullring of Antequera. Walls are decorated with memorabilia (nothing gorey!) and small windows look onto the floodlit interior at night. The restaurant is laid out with some 'booth style' tables that are more intimate for a romantic meal.

    Menu is sophisticated, food is of good quality and creatively presented and there are often specials available. Staff are very professional and attentive. We have eaten here a dozen or so times and have never had a disappointing meal.

    This restaurant is often far busier at lunchtime than it is of an evening. There are about 30+ tables and it can feel 'empty' and lacking atmosphere with just a few diners.

    RESTAURANTE CHICON: LOCAL FARE

    by LoriPori Written Feb 19, 2006

    Bar - Cafeteria Chicon

    As we were all getting hungry after touring and walking most of the morning, we started to look for a place for lunch. We decided upon the RESTAURANTE CHICON as it had a Menu de Dia - Menu of the Day posted outside for 8,50 Euros. We, Hans, Stace and I all had pork chops with french fries. Though thin, the chops were delicious and the fresh cut fries were done to perfection. For dessert, I had the flan.

  • Lydia: Breakfast at Lydia's

    lydia's breakfast gives you the energy to go sight

    This little place is a bakery/ pasteleria come breakfast spot. They do great toasted molletes (a famous type of bread from Antequera) with Pate or ham or tomato or marmalade or olive oil or whatever else they might have. You can also get a lovey freshly squeezed orange juice or of course a coffee.

    The staff where friendly and polite and the prices were very reaonable too! I think my breakfast came to 2euros which is very cheap considering I had a fresh orange juice.

    Most of Cafeterias and Bares: Don´t Miss the 'Mollete de Antequera'

    by Sergio_ATQ Written May 1, 2005

    Mollete of Antequera is a kind of not fermented bread inherited from the Arabs who went to Antequera a few centuries ago.
    It´s very nutritive, healthy and original from Antequera.
    You can take it with olive oil, jam, tomato, onion, sugar, ... (with one of this ingredients of some of them... it´s your decission :) )
    Don´t forget to have a Mollete de Antequera when you come to Antequera.

  • Plaza del Toros: Bullring Basement

    by Chalky9 Written Oct 3, 2004

    This restaurant is located in the Bullring itself, accessed by the 'Puerto del Sol' entrance. You pass by a small bar area into a corridor with seating in alcoves before reaching the main eating area. The walls are covered in pictures relating to bull fighting, as you would expect!

    The food is Andalucian, excellent and well presented. There is more meat than fish. Desserts are also good and include the local speciality 'Bienmesabe'. A meal for 2 with wine will set you back around €65.

    Favorite Dish: I can particularly recommend the sliced breast of Duck with fresh fig. The flavours complemented one another perfectly.

    Antequera has two original plates

    One is the "porra antequerana" great in summer, it is made of bread, tomatoes, peppers and other ingredients

    Also the dessert "bienmesabe" .

    A typical kind of bread called "Mollete" is famous in the area.

    The "mantecados" and "alfajores" for Christmas are famous by the mums.

    Salon de Juegos Manzanito: A pleasant surprise

    by Geoff_Wright Written Mar 27, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Restaurant

    We spent ages trying to find a nice looking Restaurant, and eventually found the Salon de Juegos Manzanito, not far from the path up to the Castle.

    Favorite Dish: There is a set price for everything on the menu. You get a half portion for 3.20 Euros, or a large portion for 6.20 Euros.
    Mary and I had grilled bacon and chips, whilst Jaymes' eyes almost popped out when he saw no less than eight Hamburgers on his plate, hahaha. (They were not full size, of course).

    Cafe Bar Castilla.: Churros, Churros and more Churros.

    by Beach_dog Updated Oct 29, 2002

    Cafe Bar Castilla

    An ordinary every day Spanish Cafe, I went here two mornings for breakfast as it was only a very short walk from the hotel.

    Favorite Dish: Churros, a deep fried dough eaten throughout Spain at breakfast time and dipped in Hot Chocolate or Coffee. Its one of my favourites.
    If you go on a Sunday morning try to arrive before 10:00 AM, after this time it becomes very crowded as families return from church.

    Mesón - Cerveceria, ´House of Terry´: Fine local Tapas

    by Beach_dog Written Oct 29, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    House of Terry

    More of a house than a bar, relaxed surroundings, frequented by families.

    Favorite Dish: I tried some of the local Tapas. I was a little disappointed that the beers were European and not Local.
