Just a kilometer from the village of El Chorro on the road towards the Guadalhorce lakes, this little bar/restaurant “El Pilar”is one of my favorites. It’s not overpriced and the owners are friendly and well used to foreign tourist passing by. (A great place to practice your Spanish 🙂 )
Normally, there is no problem for parking and this is the best place for you to get a good view of the Caminito del Rey and the train bridge just before the first tunnel. (Just park your car and walk along the road for 100 metres towards the gorge.
Food here is a you would expect from a roadside “venta” with a good selection of tapas, salad and meat dishes.
The nearest hotel to this bar is the Garganta Hotel and Restaurant
