We believe this restaurant has had a change of ownership - as this is the only rational explanation for the standard of food and service diving over a cliff since our friends last visited.
Service wasn't unfriendly - just incomprehensibly slow given the empty dining room.
Lamb dishes were enjoyed, but 4 of the 5 'fillet' of beef we ordered were simply inedible. What wasn't indigestible gristle was cloying fat.
I was told that this is what fillet is in Spain and I'm normally willing to forgive and even appreciate cultural variation - but whatever cut of beef this was, it wasn't fit for human consumption. Avoid at all costs.
Just to add insult to injury, the second bottle of red wine we ordered was brought to the table chilled as if it were a Chablis.
Deeply frustrating experience.

We were in Sierra Nevada for New Year's Eve nod foolishly hadn't booked anywhere,so we happy we hadn't as after much searching we found this total gem.

They were booked out but the owner insisted on us coming in and created a table in a corner for the three of us, That was just the beginning of one of the best meals I've ever had and probably the best all round service ever, they were amazingly busy yet you would never known it from the service, one after another we were served with their special New Year's Eve set- meal which was amazing and a desert that I suspect can never be beaten, their chef is a find.

Thank you to every member of staff you made it a special new year and we will return very soon.

Seriously cannot recommend this restaurant enough, try it !

What a lovely place! Gorgeous tapas and a good selection of other dishes. Simply excellent service, run by a super ski instructor called Alberto. The prices are re very reasonable and the atmosphere very welcoming. Well worth a visit by Melody From Coventry

We called in here on spec and found it was booked out but they found a spot for us anyway. The food was excellent as is their wine list.
Although best known for its meat I had an excellent salmon steak so there is something here for non meat eaters too!
