The dishes were quite unsophisticated and under seasoned. The 30 € steak was the worst I have experience. Too much meat, and for same strands reason pre-cut in slices before grilled. The octopus starter was also too much food and not tasty.

We went there for dinner. The place looks old fashioned but warm. The menu is short, a kind of classical dishes with a touch, but all well presented and good quality. Nice choice of wines.

We dined at this fine restaurant 23d December. We had a great dining experience! We received the Chef's Welcome. It was a delicious Creme de Calabaisin (Pumpkin) Soup. We enjoyed it with Sepia Bread. Our first course, very Spanish dish, was nicely steamed Gambas Blanca, eaten with the fingers, served on a bed of rock salt. We were given a... More

We booked this restaurant at our hotels recommendation for Xmas day. Beautiful setting with lovely decor. We found the menu to be very very expensive, not child friendly and strange combinations of food which didn't appeal. We were dressed casually,the waiter appeared unfriendly and somber, there were no other diners and I felt he thought we were unworthy of their... More

Being in a ski resort we hadn't taken any 'dress up' clothes so felt underdressed for this type of restaurant. The service was a little old school but the waiters we're very pleasant after they'd got over the fact we weren't wearing fur coats! The food was beautiful and the whole experience, while decadent, was the best we had on... More

The interior is not that impressive as in the other restaurant, close to Granada, but the competition isn’t very heavy up here. The food on the other hand holds almost the same quality. I had suckling pig, which was good, but not excellent – as I have tasted it at the Granada Ruta la Veleta.

An amazing place to visit to see the interior and by the way a Michelin restaurant. A wonderful lunch of filet, seafood salad, and wine. What a unique and wonderful experience.

It's definetely worth the price, food is excellent, well presented and well served, each dish is totally amazing. A bit expensive, but once in a while it's worth it, and it's a gourment place so you know you are paying for excellent quality.
