Located in Spain’s only octagonal square, Arxiduna is made even more unique by its natural cave dining areas, which were once used as a Mozárabe church and have been declared a Heritage site by the Andalucía government. There are three such dining areas inside along with a cosy bar area, and a spacious terrace with lovely views out in the square.

The first time I visited I was there on my own, and the chef kindly offered to create a tasting menu of some of his favourite dishes so I could try a few different things. This took me into a world of fusion food that was all very good (even – surprisingly – the tuna with chocolate!) but for my personal taste there were a few too many sauces. Simpler dishes like the calamar bocata and the grilled abanico (pork) worked best for me. More recently I visited with friends and we were able to try more dishes between us. I definitely recommend you stop in when you’re in Archidona – great atmosphere, fab staff, and a menu that has something for everyone.
