As always food excellent, really impressed by the menu.

Two of our group are vegetarians and they were really impressed with the vegetarian options.

Service efficient and friendly.

It is the second time I visit the restaurant during this trip.

A spectacular weekend with live music.

I tried new dishes off the menu because it was Mother’s Day. The roast beef dish was gratifying, with great quality and price.

I will visit this restaurant again in a few months.

It would be nice if Michelin, Sole or Inside would visit this restaurant because it has a superior quality and deserves a good recognition due to their professionalism, their work and services.

Totally recommended.

An atypical place in the heart of Almeria, in the heart of the Desert Springs golf course.

The whole outdoor area with water and lots of nature.

Upon arrival, we were treated with champagne for Mother’s Day.

The food was normal size and especially good.

Throughout the meal there was very nice, live music and the ambiance invited you to stay longer.

A place to come back if you are a lover of gastronomy, a special atmosphere and nature.

Good Morning Giulia,

It was good to see you again at DS last week

Just an email to say it was great to be back at DS,

we had a lovely time and the accommodation was first class.

We also enjoyed the Clubhouse and of course the golf (although I may need a little more practise!)

Thanks for your help

Kind Regards

Hi Laura,

We had a very good trip and will definitely be returning.

The staff and amenities were brilliant and golf course in excellent condition.

We ate in the Terrace most days lunch and dinner and the food was great.

Thank you,

Everything was just perfect.

The food was presented beautifully and extremely tasty.

The service was very attentive and perfectly executed.

It was like stepping into a different world and yet almost on our door step.

It was fantastic!

The place is hard to find, the direction is not clear. We got lost and had to ask around, but finally we arrived and it was like paradise in the middle of the desert!

Wonderful is an understatement … we loved it and today Sunday they had amazing live music.

The food is fantastic and the desserts even better !!!!

Special Birthday lunch here 19 April for my husband. Beautiful place we are lucky enough to call home all year round yet we dine out less.

We chose El Torrente above others for many reasons yesterday… we were not disappointed. Immaculate dining room, attentive, efficient staff and delicious fine dining off the varied inclusive menu.

A truly memorable romantic lunch date followed in the evening by a small gathering of friends and neighbours here in the bar area at Desert Springs.

Great service.

A truly memorable birthday.

Thank you to all.

It is the perfect restaurant to go one day to try something different.

The food is very tasty and there are many varieties to try in addition to a very interesting cocktail menu.

The service and the ambiance are without a doubt unbeatable!

The decoration has been perfectly renovated.

The food as always is fantastic, perfection on a plate.

We have been here on several occasions and the standard never drops.

It’s well worth a visit you don’t even need a special occasion.

This place is beautiful.

We went with family and friends and we all loved the setting and the food.

Not the cheapest but its worth the price for the beautiful setting and the food.

Tried 4 different main meals between us and loved every one of them.

Yet another wonderful meal at El Torrente.

This restaurant just gets better and better.

The menu was full of gorgeous choices.

Loved every mouthful.

Service was excellent.

Our waitress was on her first day, but was perfect at her service.

Will return here over and over again.

Dear Simon,

It was great to get the Qualifying School back up and running this year and may I take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks for hosting us at Desert Springs once again.

Your team were incredibly helpful and supportive, and it was a pleasure for us to work with everyone and to ensure that we completed the tournament successfully.

It was pleasing to see the improvement in the golf course since we last played in 2019 with the new Paspalum fairways making a huge difference.

Efforts to tidy up the desert areas were also beginning to pay dividends although I appreciate that this is an ongoing process – a bit like the Forth Bridge!

It was good to see that Niklas Lemke and Pedro Figueiredo both went on from Desert Springs to secure a card at Infinitum.

Hopefully, they can both push on to have successful seasons in 2023.

Many thanks once again.

Mike Stewart

Hi Simon,

We just wanted to say thank you so much to you, Natalia, Ernesto, Adrià and all of your teams for a fantastic Golf4Women week.

We have all been looked after so well, from the welcome reception evening through to the Prize-Giving dinner and all days in between.

The whole atmosphere was one of camaraderie and fun and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves so much.

It was lovely to have a warm welcome & photos on the tee each day and the golf clinic on Wednesday was excellent.

Thank you all.

A great week.

Gail & Nicki

Dear Simon, Natalia and Ernesto,

Just a quick not on behalf of “The Muffs in the Rough” to thank you for all the time and effort that you and yours devoted to organising a very successful Golf for Women Week – we will not hold you to account for the weather on Friday!

A good time was clearly had by all and that is in no small part down to all the hard work that went in, behind the scenes, to making it happen.

Can you also please pass on our thanks to Zac and his green staff and Adria and the catering team for their part in making the event so successful.  Well done one and all!

Hopefully “The Muffs” will be back next year – more effectively Captained by Captain Muff Garrod!

Best wishes.
