EL POSTILLON in Alhaurin el Grande is a French restaurant also offering international dishes in a cosy, romantic dining room full of rustic French charm, all headed by chef Xavier and front of house Kairi.
A childhood amongst cooks in his native Bordeaux and a diploma from a reputal French cookery school, paired with 20 years leading his own restaurant in Fuengirola and La Cala de Mijas should be enough credentials for a chef and his new venture. However Xavier Sierra's new eatery exceeds expectations. “We have a small dining-room and an outdoor patio area to offer our clients great food, exceptional service and privacy.” Xavier said.
At El Postillon, there is a set menu as well as a “chef special menu” that changes regularly. French gems such as home-made pate with onion compote and toast; Grilled Filet steak with maitre d’hôtel butter; Crab, salmon and hake terrine with rose sauce; Foie gras of duck; Snails Bourguignon; Magret of Duck are some examples of what awaits food lovers.
The Fonda has kept the Andalucian features of the building, giving it a French rustic twist. One of the beauties of El Postillon is that it is off the beaten track, surrounded by spectacular views of the coast and a valley. By all accounts, parking is not a problem and the trip alone is well worth a visit.
When asked about their clientele, Kairi said: “We have bookings from a wide range of nationalities and ages. We would like to thank all our customers for the positive comments on Trip Advisor. Thanks to them we have been awarded their Certificate of Excellence.”
Opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 7:00 pm to 10:30 pm and Sundays from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Closed Sunday night and Monday.
