COOKING has been French chef Xavier Sierra’s raison d’être since he was old enough to tie his own apron strings.  El Postillo

After working in his parents’ restaurant in France and studying at the best cooking school in Bordeaux, Ecole Hoteliere de Talence, Xavier packed up his kitchen utensils and headed to Spain 20 years ago.

Today he is the proud owner of Fonda el Postillon – a gem of a restaurant tucked away in the southernmost reach of the Guadalhorce Valley, in Alhaurin el Grande.

“I am passionate about cooking and I want to share that passion,” he says.

“Cooking is my life. My parents owned a restaurant and I was all but born in a kitchen.”

After running a restaurant in Fuengirola for the best part of a decade, Xavier made the move inland to spend more time with his family.

And in doing so he set up one of the most picturesque restaurants to be found in Andalucia.

With views across the valley and verdant gardens, Fonda el Postillon has made a name for itself as a fine dining restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere serving up French and international dishes.
