Pantano in english means Marsh or marshland - you are by no way going to find any marshland over here. This is a fantastic picnic and sports area surrounded with lush nature and breathtaking views. You can go on a kayak and practice other water sports, depending on the time of the year. There is also a hostal should you wish to come and stay here for some time.
Hostal La Abuela is a classic restaurant. The restaurant is normally packed, specially on the weekends. No reservations - it is normally on the first come first served basis. The menu is lower than 10 Euros and the food is great. As soon as you enter the restaurant you have to pass through the bar area with the kitchen at the background, where you get the differtent aroms of the dishes of the day and as you see the waiters pass by serving the already occupied tables you get a glance of the dishes and mentally start deciding your choices..hmmm, pretty mouth watering. The service is good and fast. The cost as I said before is very reasonable. Worth a visit if you are in Utiel or passing by.
