“Very good food, very hostile head waiter”
Review of Las Piscinas

Las Piscinas
Ranked #3 of 6 Restaurants in Ayerbe
Price range: US$7 - US$18
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 5, 2019

We ate here on April 20 from the set menu. The three-course meal was very good, and since it included a bottle of very drinkable wine, quite good value.

I would have rated this much higher if not for the openly hostile attitude of the head waiter, who greeted us rather rudely while complaining openly in Spanish about the trouble of English-speaking customers. He waved us dismissively to a far table and sent around a braver waitress with enough English to help us order. At the end of the meal the head waiter (if that is what he was) ignored us for as long as possible before we could pay and leave.

I guess if this intends to be a locals restaurant and does not want tourist business I could understand better the hostile attitude, but I noticed a TripAdvisor decal on the door, which suggests to me that they want to be a tourist destination. Someone in the ownership perhaps might want to consider some of the contradictions in attitude.

Some towns you struggle to find a place to eat but in Ayerbe one is spoilt for choice. Piscinas located in a modern building is one of the options.
When we arrived quite early for Spanish standards at 14:30 the restaurant was already full. Luckily they found space in the bar area where 3 other families where also eating.
We all ate from the Menu del Dia which has plenty of choice. The standouts were the bean stew, pork chops, asparagus salad, all portions were enormous.

After a coffee we left feeling very satisfied, highly recommended!
