    Had the lunch menu, which on Sundays includes a choice of roasts. Our meat was excellent and not overcooked at all. Good value for €20. Service is attentive. The draft Victoria beer is well served. The house red is on the oaky-crianza-side. The views are magnificent.

    I was disappointed with the main courses. The roast potatoes seemed like they had been cooked yesterday and re-heated. The food came on a cold plate. My wife's chichen also seemed to have been re - heated and it was supossed to be chicken piri piri but it was chicken with a seperate piri piri sauce. Most disappointing!

    This is the 4th time we have been, and yet again it didn’t disappoint. Excellent views, great food at reasonable prices, and good service. It doesn’t get much better.

    The bread was not fresh, the food was very average, and there were lots of flies! The service was poor, we were not met at the door, we had to wonder through the restaurant to find someone, and then as the restaurant continued to fill, the service became worse. Would not visit again.

    After reading so much about how great this place was, perhaps we arrived with too high expectations. I asked for a table with a view of the sea and was told those tables were all for smokers! Bit disappointing to sit on one of the middle tables with no views. Service felt overall rushed and we had to ask for a break between courses as the waitress was far too quick to ask if we wanted desserts directly after clearing our main plates!! My son has a steak which was fabulous he said, my knuckle of pork was tasty with a lot of fat to remove. My daughter’s ribs were very poor the meat did not fall off them and therefore she did not enjoy them. Politely gave feedback on this and felt they were not appreciative and maybe hardly ever receive such honest comments? I think this is a good place to book late evening for sunset as atmosphere was just building up around 8.30/9. Full of brits if you like that kind of place need to try try again sometime at a different time to get a true opinion Would rather less of the Brit feel and being rushed.i

    Great food and terrace. Outdoor dining with a view ! Good selection of food and great steaks. A must for anyone in the La Cala area, worth the small drive out.

    We have visited El Jinete on a few special occasions and always had a lovely time. The welcome is courteous. We were the first there this evening, having booked the table for 7pm and we sat at a lovely table with a glorious view of the valley below. We chose the set evening menu and all the dishes were more than ample. The steaks were cooked to perfection with a small side of mixed vegetables. The set menu provides several options. This is a special restaurant and is very popular with those in the know. Booking is advisable. We were there on a Monday and it filled up nicely while we were there

    The best meat ever. This place is really special , everything is home made from starters to deserts and you can feel, taste the difference. i recommend the chateaubriand for those who don't know it yet and will visit for the 1st time. The terrace is beautiful with beautiful views on the cala de mijas valley.

    Good food it was a little quiet but that didn't concern us as it gave us time to chat. I thought there was a deal on the set menu @ €20 instead of €25 but that wasn't reflected. Would have liked some more choice on potatoes & Vegetables but we will definitely be back.

    This great grill restaurant is one of our favourites in the La Cala area. Warm and friendly in the winter with live music and even better when the large terrace is open in the warmer days. The charcoal grill and excellent quality of meat are the main reason we love the place though...

    For a set meal it was not good.......45€ per head and just not worth it....... I don’t know what a Jinete chefs do with vegetables but they are pretty much inedible... in fairnesss they’ve been the same for years a pile of courgette and something on top stacked up to make it look cheffy.... do something with the beg for gods sake .
