Very surprised by the decor and did not know what to expect. We had a very pleasant meal and the staff assisted us in choosing well.

A short and familiar menu with the usual bacalao (cod) and solomillo (beef fillet steak) but in Aragon, try the ternasca (lamb). The the quality of cooking and service sets this restaurant apart from many others in the region.

A very friendly restaurant with wonderful food! We enjoyed the "Tasting Menu" which was really delicious and gave us the opportunity to sample 3 starters, 3 main courses, and a trio of delicious desserts! Wine was very good and reasonably priced too. Perfect! Highly recommended.

We called into the restaurant to make a booking for the evening and received a warm welcome and made our reservation. Upon arrival we were again welcomed by the friendly efficient English speaking staff. We ordered the tasting menu, comprising three entrees, three mains and a selection of deserts, all for E25 per person. We were recommended a very enjoyable... More

We had the degustation menu which gave the opportunity to eat a lot of small dishes. They were all very tasteful. There aren't many places to have diner in Sos, but don't hesitate to make a reservation for diner if you stay in Sos. The menu is rather expensive for Spanish norms, although not as expensive as the parador. But... More

My partner is vegetarian, so Spain can be tricky (ah, but there's always egg'n'potato). We had an evening meal here which was excellent, with an English menu so the trickier spanish words could be sorted out ("does that mean prawn or mushroom?"). Lovely ambience inside, and fully recommended.

This was a sensational meal with great service. No negatives at all. At the end of a fairly long ride including a puncture, it was a pleasure to find this gem.

We had lunch here as a small family. One member ordered the tasting menu for 25 Euros, and it truly was worth it. There were three first plates, three second plates, and three desserts. All were served in large enough portions to appreciate the taste of each. Excellent in every way. The other members ordered the sirloin steak and roasted... More

We went to this restaurant by chance and it was a nice surprise that we'll hardly forget! We hadn't had such an incredible meal in a very long time. The food was excellent with high quality ingredients and a range of meat and fish options were available too. I had the "Menu degustación", which is a fantastic choice to taste... More
