If you haven't tried Mangier Benne, please them... More

I was here 3 times and every meal was excellent. Located in Posada del Angel Hotel, and the food is mostly Italian. Rather entertaining too to watch the kitchen activities from the restaurant. Staff are great too and speak English very well.

We were staying at the hotel above this restaurant Hostal Posada de Angel (Also Recommended) and one the guide books mildly recommended this restaurant. What a fantastic surprise Mangiare Benne turned out to be. The meals are both incredibly flavorful and beautifully presented, with amazing sauces.
