Bar Los Pastores used to be owned by a wonderful Dutch couple. Mater used to call her “my dutch doll”, and, amazingly, she never minded.
However, they built up a good customer base, and is logical, they sold out and left the area with a profit. Good on them.
It was taken over by a stange English lady who left several comments on my blog about her “5 star rosette” English chef. Fair enough. We weren’t overly impressed on our visits there.
We then received news that it had been taken over by a local couple, Matt and Carol.
They seem to have revamped Los Limoneros since the last time I was there. Yes, the swimming pool is still there. No, I don’t know if they are still visited by foxes, like the last time I was there. But, it’s cleaner and friendlier, a repaint has made the place… cosier and the music has improved.
So has the menu.
Now, the menu needs to be treated with caution. Because it could be dangerous. It is the normal menu that a restaurant amateur -or a michelin starred chef- builds up. For example, Lamb Casserole. Casserole is the sort of meal that is only any good if it cooked fresh, which means it needs a lot of customers. Lo and behold, I was told “Sorry, no Casserole” when I was given the menu, for the reasons explained above. Clive also knew the fish of the day and the soup, which in most places they don’t. Don’t you hate that?
“What’s the soup of the day, please?” “errrrrrrrrrrrrr…… I’ll find out”.
We had a drink in the comfortable lounge. Then we went in to eat.
Oh my gosh. Know what I love about that place? The Guinness Ice Cream. No kidding. Visit there, you’ll find out. Lovely. Ice Cream, made with Guinness. Need I say more?
End of story: three happy people. €119,50, for 3 starters, 3 main courses, 2 puds, 2 coffees, 1 magno, 3 G&T, 1 Water, 2 bottles of Allozo. IMHO, worth it.
