This is five-star country cooking. My salad was the best I've had in Spain: grilled goat cheese, with lettuce, pomegranate seeds, olives, nuts and who knows what else. The chicken thigh and pork ribs were extremely tender and tasty. We were too full to get the dessert that came with our meal.

Small but cosy restaurant right in the centre of Albarracín., next to Plaza Mayor. The service is very attentive and relatively fast. I would recommend the set menu for 20.75€ (it does NOT include wine): I tried 'canelones con setas' (mushroom caneloni) and lamb chops (excellently cooked). As a dessert, do not miss 'torrijas' with chocolate and orange ice cream.... More

By far, I like this restaurant in Albarracin the most. Although they don't have menu in English and the server can't speak English but they are very helpful! The food was great! The downside of this restaurant is we're not sure when it would open or close. Because we went there the next day the same time we were the... More

Ate dinner here for 20€ which was a three course meal plus mineral water. Even though the waiter had no English, he had pictures of the food on his iphone. Food was good and good value.

This small typical restaurant is very nice, ggod food and service. The staff is very friendly and willing to assist with information about the food and the town. I really enjoyed my meal, which was well worth the price of the menu.

The salad was OK, but when the cerdo a la plancha (grilled pork) showed-up, it was nothing but grilled fat with absolutely no meat at all, unless you count the grilled pig skin. I actually pulled it apart looking for meat, but it was pure fat. I sat it aside and the waiter took it away. I paid for it... More

The restaurant was very clean and very professionally run. Good menu, we had one of the set menus. The starter and deserts were fabulous but our meat was a tad hard. I will however put it down to bad luck as the whole restaurant had a better air to it... I would definitely try again. I think we have just... More

Love this place, not for the ambience, but the food! Try the Spinach and goat cheese pastry. The meat is exceptional and fresh!
