Excellent specialities - such as suckling pig and fish baked in salt (both very succulent). Cosy atmosphere, excellent service, and very good value. Some dishes only served for two (e.g. suckling pig 38 Euros for two) and large servings of all dishes..

Our third visit to this roadside Spanish restaurant; lovely to see most of the same staff there and an unchanging menu plus daily specials. We went mid week and it was pretty busy, a testament to its well deserved reputation. We enjoyed complimentary tasters and...More
