A typical local restaurant. The people we saw on plaza mayor had drinks and tapas at the bar. We went to dinner at nine (a bit late for us). Enough choice in entrées. Fish or meat as second. We took the cheek of cow. Excellent dish! Of course accompanied with a good Rioja wine. The waiter and waitress speak English.

Although opening hours say until 16 o'clock and we showed up at 15.15 we were turned down immediatley...not very customer friendly. Unfortunatley, we cannot rate the food.

Dear customer, we are surprised you go running to qualify what happened yesterday in our local and just no more detail of what happened, why, we'll explain that there be no doubt: you were staying in a hotel from our villa, which they call to make the reservation for you would come to dinner at 21:00. We alerted the hotel... More

No doubt this is a place for top quality meat cooked to perfection. You can have a massive steak but if you do plan to share as they did on an adjacent table. Desert of creme brûlée was top quality too, one of my specialities.

In general we've eaten very well in the area so our standards are high. At this restaurant we started with a couple of pintxos, which were very good, so we decided to continue our meal at the restaurant. We weren't too hungry so we ordered several starters. The waiter recommended a vegetable dish and asparagus. Both were not good, and... More

Hola, Hasta ahora no habiamos tenido una critica tan dura en tripadvisor y tratare de justificar lo que para ustedes fue la peor visita en su viaje a españa. Lo primero seria decir que las dos unicas criticas negativas que tenemos provienen de una misma mesa,justo ustedes dos que cenaron el dia 2 de mayo. por que dos criticas negativas?... More
