Bar Meson El Puente - In a privileged situation in the Dúrcal river gorge, a protected natural space, next to the Pilar del Mono, a famous local spring, lies El Puente.  Originally a lemonade factory this building was turned into a bar many years ago - Alberto's mother came here for her 'honeymoon' in 1947 to drink a fizzy lemonade.  Then the happy couple went home again.

The bar is now run by Gloria and Mario, who have many years of experience catering in various countries.  As a result the food is not your usual traditional Spanish fare - although if that is what you want it can be arranged.  The salads are spectacular, using rocket and lambs lettuce, balsamic vinegar, honey and locally produced goats cheese, depending on the inspiration of the day.  They like to use local organic vegetables when they can obtain them, and are constantly experimenting with new recipes.  The terrace is usually protected from the wind, and can be used on sunny days even in January, one of the only places in the Lecrin Valley where this is possible.  If the weather is inclement there is an open fire in the restaurant area.  Tapas are large and varied, you can easily have the equivalent of a meal with two or three drinks.  Desserts are also homemade, chocolate and almond brownie, Tarte tatin made with local apples....

There is a very reasonable menu del dia at 10€, at weekends this is a little more special at 17.50€.
