The Top Three...

1. LA HERRADURA RESTAURANTS - NO. 20

La Herradura Restaurants - No. 20
Restaurante No. 20 €€-€€€
INTERNATIONAL - EUROPEAN - VEGETARIAN
Certificate of Excellence 2018 - 2019 Winner

No. 20 has our vote for the BEST restaurant in La Herradura. The quality and presentation of the food are always top notch and the service is superb. It's a fine dining experience in a laid back and relaxed atmosphere.

At No. 20 the menu changes often. They try to put something new together every week, but you can always trust that it's going to be great! From a beautiful Sirloin to a juicy burger, it's all fantastic.

They are no longer beachside, since recently moving to a side street off Paseo Andres Segovia, but they have a wonderful little garden that is perfect for small parties or couples.

Remember to always make a reservation for No. 20 as it is a local favorite and fills up fast.

La Herradura Restaurants - Bola Marina
Bola Marina €€-€€€
SPANISH - VEGETARIAN
Certificate of Excellence 2016 - 2019 Winner

Bola Marina has been a favorite among locals and tourists for years. They have a small cozy little spot on the main road out of town but it's decorated beautifully and very upscale.

They focus on traditional Andalucian cuisine and are popular for their generous tapas and drinks.

La Herradura Restaurants - MarDela
MarDela €€-€€€
MEDITERRANEAN - BARBECUE

Mardela is a fairly new restaurant in La Herradura but they have not disappointed. They have a wonderful location right across from Playa La Herradura with a large terrace and beautiful views of the bay.

The food is typical Spanish cuisine with fresh salads, juicy meats and flavorful rice dishes...Bravo!

We really enjoyed the goat cheese salad and beautifully cooked pork; it was practically falling off the bone. If you are looking for something new to try in La Herradura, give Mardela a try!!

The Best La Herradura Chiringuitos

Chiringuito: a small restaurant or bar, selling mainly drinks and tapas, and sometimes larger meals, in a more or less provisional or no-frills building, often on a beach...

LA HERRADURA RESTAURANTS - CHAMBAO DE VICENTE

La Herradura Restaurants - Chambao de Vicente
Chambao de Vicente €€-€€€
MEDITERRANEAN - CHIRINGUITO

A Chiringuito is a typical Spanish seafood restaurant that you will usually find sitting right on the beach. They serve all sorts of interesting fish dishes, either fried, baked, or even grilled over an open fire right outside the restaurant. The food is usually pretty basic, but good!

Chambao de Vicente is a family owned Chiringuito that sits on the western end of La Herradura, with amazing views of the entire bay. It's our favorite one along the beach, the staff is warm, friendly and the place is very well run.

Try the Fried Bocarones, or Calamari... and their Gambas Pil-Pil is the best on the beach!

LA HERRADURA RESTAURANTS - LA SARDINA

La Herradura Restaurants - La Sardina
Chiringuito La Sardina €€-€€€
MEDITERRANEAN - CHIRINGUITO

Sardina is another Chiringuito in La Herradura that is located about mid-way down the beach with a nice outdoor terrace, and of course beautiful views.

The decor in Sardina is a little more upscale than some of the other Chiringuitos and they have a great bar. The food is also particularly good, consistent and typical of what you would find in most Spanish chiringuitos.

The Best Pizzeria

LA HERRADURA RESTAURANTS - PIZZERIA REALENGO

La Herradura Restaurants - Pizzeria Realengo
Pizzeria Realengo €€-€€€
ITALIAN - MEDITERRANEAN - PIZZERIA

Pizzeria Realengo is another favorite in La Herradura. It's a family owned restaurant that serves... you guessed it... pizza! They have great pizzas, pasta, and other very typical Andalucian dishes.

The service at Realengo is wonderful and the atmosphere is quaint and cozy! This is a low-key restaurant that is perfect for families with kids.

The Best Take-Out Pizza

LA HERRADURA RESTAURANTS - PIZZERIA XAVERIO

La Herradura Restaurants - Pizzeria Xaverio
Pizzeria Xaverio €€-€€€
ITALIAN - MEDITERRANEAN - PIZZERIA

There are not many restaurants in La Herradura that do take-away dining. Pizzeria Xaverio is a tiny little place just behind the local market and their pizzas are great!

If you are feeling like eating something sinful and you don't feel like cooking, Xaverio is a good choice! They will either deliver or you can call ahead and pick it up!

The Best Cafe

LA HERRADURA RESTAURANTS - SZIMPLE

La Herradura Restaurants - Szimple
Szimple €€-€€€
COFFEE - MEDITERRANEAN CAFE

Szimple just opened this year and it has been a huge hit. It's just a small little cafe that sits just across from the beach on the western end of La Herradura. They are open for breakfast and lunch.

Their food is simple, but exceptionally good! Szimple's menu is small but consists mostly of interesting toasts and open-faced sandwiches. They have delicious smoothies and their coffee is the best!

Try the red pepper and hummus toast or the avocado and fresh tuna, something light and fresh to start you off in the morning!

The Best Ice Cream Shop

LA HERRADURA RESTAURANTS - ISLA DE CAPRI

La Herradura Restaurants - Isla de capri
Heladeria Isla de capri €€-€€€
COFFEE - ICE CREAM SHOP

Needing something sweet to top it all off? Or spending a day at the beach with the kids and want to cool down? Then head over to Isla de Capri.

They have a great selection of the best ice creams in town and other delicious desserts. Their coffee is also very good. This is the perfect spot for a mid-day "pick me up"!

The Best Thai Food in La Herradura

LA HERRADURA RESTAURANTS - KENG'S IN

La Herradura Restaurants - Keng's In
Keng's In €€-€€€
ASIAN - THAI CUISINE

Most of what you will find in La Herradura, food-wise, is your traditional Andalucian or Mediterranean cuisine. Of course, we love this but after a while we need something a little different. That's when you try Keng's In.

Keng's is a one-man operation that is just off Calle Andrea Segovia near Plaza Nueva. He serves fresh, homemade, and deliciously spicy Thai food. You can either eat in, although his place is tiny, or take it out and enjoy it at home or on the beach.

We recommend the roasted duck, mouthwatering falling off the bone Thai spiced ribs, or pasta with green curry sauce!

The Best Late-Night Bar in La Herradura

LA HERRADURA RESTAURANTS - LA COCHERA

La Herradura Restaurants - La Cochera
La Cochera €€-€€€
SPANISH CUISINE - NIGHT CLUB

La Herradura is just a quiet, little fishing village most of the year, but during the summer months it comes "alive"! The streets are humming with tourist and beach goers happily buzzing around enjoying their holiday. The restaurants fill up and the sound of laughter and clinking glasses fill the air.

La Cochera is also abuzz during this time, La Herradura's only night club, with festive music playing and its lively patrons spilling out into the street.

It's an eclictic little venue, painted bright blue and adorned with antique bicycles in front, and opening up in the back to reveal a splendid little patio with twinkling lights and flowering vines. It is both intimate and electrifyingly chaotic at the same time...
