La Cueva del Monaguillo is situated in a beautiful and peaceful cobbled square in the centre of Coin, where a church chimes the hour, pigeons sup from the fountain and the fronds of palm noisily rustle.
Outside the bar seven or so tables hover beneath parasols where you can eat good quality tapas, salads and sandwiches.
All the salads but one contain meat (a goat cheese salad for €8.50) but they are happy to omit or substitute..
Tapas is the usual spread and then some, including tortilla chips and guacamole; aubergines in honey, patatas bravas and sheep cheese.
They serve large round sandwiches (like a circular baguette) called roscas – and whilst all the published options aren’t vegetarian, they were happy to prepare one that was.
They also have a scrambled egg dish (called a revueltos) that is made with mushroom.
On the montaditos (small bites) menu they have a Spanish omelette (tortilla de patatas) with mayonnaise and cheese with caramelized onion. Both cost €1.70.
The food at La Cueva del Monaguillo was fairly high quality and the portions were sizeable which was all good in an upmarket looking restaurant in a very beautiful central plaza in town.
They have a couple of desserts but we gave them the finger in favour of the heladeria (by the same company) situated right next door.
La Cueva del Monaguillo enjoys a lovely location, the food is pretty good, portions again good and the service friendly. Plus the terrace means that it is Sweep friendly and enjoys shade during the afternoon – which was welcomed.
