There is a wide range of bars and restaurants to choose from in Capileira – we recommend the ones we know-
A lovely place to sit and have a drink is the gardens of the Hotel Poqueira Gorge run by our friends Paco and Pepe. You will find the hotel on your left as you drive into Capileira and the gardens are just beyond and below the hotel. They also offer food from the barbeque here if you are hungry.
There is a good pizzeria in Capileira called Calvario situated in a small square called Plaza Calvario.
Another good place to eat is El Asador, which you will find on the main street in Capileira on your right as you drive up the hill. This is highly recommended for tasty well cooked meat and fish dishes.
Casa de Pilar y Paco Lopez, the last restaurant on the right going up the hill on the main road has excellent views and in the heat of the season it is highly recommended with its lovely garden and terrace.
There are of course lots more restaurants and bars in Capileira, it is an interesting and beautiful place to wander around and discover hidden treasures.
When you wander around Bubion on foot you will discover tiny bars hidden away down alleyways, but on the main road through the village is El Teide which is great for a drink with tapas as well as traditional Alpujarran food.
There are numerous bars and restaurants dotted around the streets and alleyways of Pampaneira and you never find yourself too far away from a bar or eating place. Tucked away in one of the alleyways isBodega Asador “El Lagar” which has a wood burning oven for pizzas etc.
