We wandered around and stopped at the first and best eatery we found. Not that we expected bad things, but were nevertheless surprised at the very high quality food we were served. Nice atmosphere in a quiet setting. I recommend this place highly.

Had the rump steak with the Chimmichurri source, very nice indeed. We also had the Pea risotto dish which was also very good. Washed down with a bottle of Rioja. The staff were pleasant, friendly and attentive.
