Had a lovely lunch here. The restaurant had menus in different languages which helped. Definitely try the ox steak with caramel sauce. The clams in garlic were lovely and strong. Aubergine in honey was too sweet for us. Very friendly.

We had lunch and enjoyed the typical Spanish interior and food. We had gazpacho and sardines.
The waiter was very friendly.

It's a restaurant close to the city hall.
From the outside looks like a tourist trap, with "gluten free" panels and a big trip advisor sticker outside.
However, it's pretty local and the quality of the food and the daily menu (applies for lunch and diner time) costs 12€, it's a three courses meal plus drink, coffe and bread and is good.

Had really good Almerian food here. Tapas are served with drinks whilst you decide what to have from a very varied menu. Very good food, reasonably priced too.

For a special birthday evening we came to this restaurant as it looked as though it had a good rating and the interior looked pleasant , however as much as we enjoyed the food, the lamb sweetbreads were fab, the waiter was very miserable and really looked as though he did not want to be there, he put some music on after 15 minutes and hovered around us all evening with not a smile on his face, he acted in the same manner with some locals who were on the next table as well.
