Rustic, local restaurant, no frills - and highly recommended. We communicated in part Spanish, part English, we weren’t entirely sure what we ordered, but the food, service and welcome were marvellous. Excellent value for food and drinks. Definitely one to visit

Some great dishes, some just so so. Croquetas and chicken were good while shrimp pil pil didn’t taste like much of anything. But a very popular spot.

Nothing special, decent house wine and the assorted croquettas were tasty. Reasonably priced and prompt service.

Amazing service and food. We visited here twice during our stay, the second time Javi and Veronica helped us celebrate my mum’s birthday with complimentary shots and a warm welcome. Cannot recommend the food enough! Just brilliant!

Small bar at the centre of the village. Very good, friendly service. A mixture of specials and standard tapas but with a very homemade feel to everything. Extremely cheap.
