    I think there is a problem in the kitchen. We have been quite a few times, but this year the quality if the food has gone down. It is still just about ok, but the flow is such that the service is slow to very slow. The staff is excellent friendly and attentif. I hope the kitchen will be sorted out very soon.

    We have been many times, great food and service. Last night was a bit dissapointing, probably due to staff shortages. We will try again

    Good. The ambience was spoiled a little because a group of over 12 would not sit down and had their aperos standing.

    We visited Jinette for a family & friends gathering. The food is delicious and amazing quality. The staff attentive & friendly. The ambiance & scenery, beautiful. Pascal the sommelier had excellent knowledgeable of the wines but also made the best larger shandy :) A fabulous afternoon & very much recommended.

    A strange amuse-bouche, a nice prawn starter, but disappointing filet-mignon with over-complicated vegetable concoctions.

    Discovered this good restaurant over a year ago, food excellent, sadly owner not here this week. We have visited on two occasions this week. One young female member of staff has no smile poor tempered and very snappy, the worst last night, constantly sneaking into a corner to check her phone. Such a pity it has put us off returning for the next two weeks of our stay.

    Our son and his wife were visiting us from UK and specifically asked to go to El Jinete as they had fond memories of previous visits. Yesterday’s visit was just as pleasing, in fact, more than last time, I think. We all enjoyed the meal and service was excellent. The environment is so lovely. Thank yup for a brilliant time.

    We have eaten at El Jinete on previous occasions but this is the first time that we were inside, it was earlier in the year before and we ate on the terrace. Everything is just excellent, tables really nicely arranged, staff so friendly and professional and the food is just delicious....10/10 for the food, wine and friendly waiting staff.

    Excellent meal and service, disappointed that they no longer did the set menu, at a set price

  • Sandra M.6 reviews

    We were seated and the wait staff asked what we wanted to drink. I asked for a wine list and she said it was inside the menu. Then she never came back until we called her over ten minutes later. Then a large group came in and we never saw the servers again. We were completely ignored and the noise was so loud we could not hear each other talk. Finally, I asked to switch tables and they said yes. Then we sat for 15 minutes without anyone coming over. Finally, after we called a server over someone came over. The rest of the meal passed ok but the food was so-so. I felt like we were not very important to them.

    Slow service and our main course was forgotten and so we had to wait even longer. The lamb was good but the sole and prawn papiolotte was awful as there was very little fish in it and only 1 prawn! So disappointing as our son had told us it was good

    Disappointing meal, Rossini steak was more rare than medium, foie gras lacked any flavour, sauce also had no depth of flavour. Starters were excellent, service ok, ambience good.
