San Martin Restaurant - otherwise known as "The Pig Farm"


The restaurant San Martin, commonly known as the "Pig Farm", is very popular with ex-pat Brits and any regular holidaymakers that know about it.

It is what you might call a restaurante típico, but on a grand scale. The restaurant gets its nickname because it specialises in suckling pig.




San Martin is a bit unique, in that it's so huge, it tends to specialise in large groups of people. Indeed, that's the best way to experience this restaurant, because, if there's enough of you, all having the suckling pig, a whole pig is eventually wheeled out and the pork meat is carved by your table.

In this instance, make sure you sample the crackling. You won't be disappointed.

A delicious accompaniment to this are the potatoes. Cooked in a unique way, they arrive in a tray, with onion and leeks. Trust me - they're unbelievably tasty.




Of course, with large groups, the wine will be flowing and, inevitably, things will become a bit boisterous, as the evening wears on. I have vague recollections of, some years ago, indulging in a food fight whilst visiting with a group of about 15 other people.

The management seem to take things like this in their stride!




If, by any chance, there's just two of you, don't despair! There is so much room in San Martin that a romantic dinner for two can be had, far away from any raucous groups.

You don't have to have suckling pig either. There's also a full menu available.


The "Pig Farm" is closed Thursdays, but every other day is open from midday right through till late.

The Pig Farm is in the village of Cabo Blanco. From the TF-1 motorway, exit at the Buzanada/Guaza exit and take the sign for Buzanada.

Go up the hill, to a roundabout and take third exit. This road will take you into Cabo Blanco.

Watch out for a pink sign, saying "centro cultural" and "iglesia" and take this right fork. This should lead you to the church square, where the restaurant is found.
