IN THE VILLAGE:
Los Atanores just 2 kms outside the village, is a typical country restaurant or “venta” with a varied menu, serving decent portions and representing very good value for money. Usually open until around eleven or twelve. Can be busy at weekends, especially for weddings and christenings.
Restaurant Nescania just above the bridge. From the patio there is a perfect view overlooking the village and mountains which are partially floodlit at night.
In the bar is the mixed blessing of a large screen T.V. usually showing sport. The side door leads to an open air disco and bar in a very pleasant garden setting.
Bar/Restaurant El Castellejo is a small new restaurant decorated in rustic ochres and terracota and rapidly gaining a reputation for its good service and good food. The owner, Cristobal, has several years catering experience from his time in Switzerland.
For younger adults there are a few “pubs” in the village. (In Spain “pub” usually indicates a bar with subdued lighting and loud music)
El pub de la plaza is near the church. El pub de Castellejo is near the restaurant mentioned above. Comic is at the lower corner of the village and is probably the most lively and also has a dance floor.
Ice Cream and Pizzas. In the street from the main square to the drinking fountain is a recently opened ice cream and pizza parlour in a Morrocan style building.This is very popular with younger people.
Roast Chicken is available at weekends. Turn right after the petrol station, past bar El Pino at the end of the street.
ANTEQUERA FERIA, our favourite by far, is also held in mid August and is an absolute must to visit. There are daytime activities but generally the crowds start to build up after about 10 at night and it is traditional to drink hot chocolate with churros from around 3 in the morning.
