You will need to descend some steps to enter El Conjuro de Calahonda, one of the gastronomic gems of the province. The customer will be greeted by high-end tables and a bar when they enter El Conjuro De Calahonda. It is a warm, familiar atmosphere.
The spacious dining room is equally inviting and welcoming in a minimalist style. It opens to one side, with very distinct environments for all diners and clients. Outside, you will find a pleasant, well-kept terrace that is located on the other side of the restaurant.
Antonio Lorenzo is the El Conjuro chef. He says that it brings him joy and satisfaction when customers tell them that they first visited Calahonda. They had originally come to his house to eat. This is a great achievement.
It is because El Conjuro does not allow it to be passed. El Conjuro is only accessible by those who are willing to travel there. It is a displacement. A visit that is well worth the effort. Joy, rather. This contemporary-style tavern makes eating at it a pleasure, a party, and a joy.
Antonio and Daniel, their brother, have started their careers in El Conjuro. This honest, traditional inn was opened by their parents many years ago. They have worked hard and learned a lot, beating copper every day. Anthony in the kitchen. Daniel is in the kitchen and behind the bar. To achieve excellence, you need to be persistent, diligent, and prepared.
After a major renovation, El Conjuro was reopened in 2017 as a modern-style tavern. You can enjoy a rich gastronomic meal in the dining room and many other options, depending on the market. For example, some imperial white asparagus leaves the diner in happy harmony.
The tavern section has an undisputed menu that features the delicious dishes that are characteristic of Antonio Lorenzo's cooking. This is a clearly Andalusian-inspired menu with Asian touches. It also features the Costa Tropical fruit and vegetable products.
El Conjuro also honors fish like tuna each year, and they often dedicate special days. Al anchovy is well fried in every sense. The Motril shrimp is, undoubtedly, one of the most coveted dishes in local gastronomy. Its proverbial rice dishes!
Antonio Lorenzo works closely with cooperatives of Costa Tropical to get the most out of a beautiful product like the Amela tomatoes sold by La Palma. Same goes for avocados, mangoes and other tropical products.
El Conjuro offers a comprehensive wine list with many references that you can buy by the glass in the restaurant or in the tavern.
The Lorenzo family's gastronomic proposal offers the opportunity to 'harmonize' the menu by pairing each dish with a different wine, as suggested by its provocative menu.
The menu is not a closed book. Instead, the dishes and wines are shared in a conversation that is always rich. It is reassuring to be able taste different wine references without ordering multiple bottles. All are geared towards ensuring the highest level of customer satisfaction.
El Conjuro's dining room and kitchen are fully consolidated. They have been supporting the Lorenzo brothers over many years. Their currencies are experience, quality, and professionalism.
