Casa la Sierrecilla is a fantastic villa for guests who want to experience traditional Andalucian cooking. There are several excellent bars and restaurants in the village, all showcasing authentic Andalucian cooking with typically fresh ingredients - the hallmark of the Mediterranean diet.
The Puentecillo has a long tapas menu and is the ideal place to while away the time while the less fortunate members of your group head to the village supermarket opposite! Bar Bakero is a very traditional bar, also with a long tapas menu. There are many other bars for those who wish to make an in-depth study of Andalucian tapas! A chilled glass of fino or a refreshing San Miguel beer are the perfect accompaniments and of course, the tapa will be free with your drink. Tapas are also very popular with children - ours love a crispy piece of fried rosada fish or a thin slice of tangy Queso Manchego.
For those looking for a special family meal out the welcoming El Peñon near the village square is a great option, or the Herradura restaurant just up from the Bakero, and we were excited to find that the El Colmao restaurant is opening again on 26th August! Guests will find that it's possible for families to eat out on holiday far more cheaply than it would be on the coast, and of course, children are welcome everywhere!
Remember that the Andalucians start lunch at around 2 p.m in summer and eat dinner at 9 p.m or later! So don't worry about early bedtimes (or early mornings!). You'll see tiny local children out with their parents past midnight. Adopt the Andalucian timetable and you'll have a wonderful holiday!
