Having lived in Spain for a few years we still come across dishes that we have not heard of. The proprietor here allows for that as he shows you pictures of the food on his smart phone. Only photos can be very deceiving especially if...the food is smothered in sauce. So our friend ordered Manitas which he was told was cerdo(pork). What he got were pigs trotters, a stomach churning plate full of fat and gristle! Luckily his starter of Carpaccio made up for it. What was bizarre, we took a while selecting our dishes only to be told we dont have that! How about telling us when you hand out the menu? I had to change my choice from Partridge to Confit of Duck and it was lovely. Starters were more expensive than the main courses, €12 for a plate of grilled vegetables, but enough for two to share. The wine was good, a Viñas del Vero from Somontano and a reasonable price at €11.45 although not a crianza as written on the wine list. We all had home made ice creams and I decided to try goats cheese, hmmm an acquired taste.More

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.More

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. All in all, a very good experience. Reservation recommended.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 day before but it was close. We tried again in the evening the next day, and it was close too.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 and left. Stick with the salad, or take your chances.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 been a bit unlucky with our main. Good service and lovely setting.More

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