Lovely cellars in the hostal make for a great setting for some great food. I wouldnt say inexpensive but not over the top for lovely presentation service and atmosphere. Briones has a lot going for it and this restaurant just made it even better.

Briones is a very beautiful small village with one of the most amazing historic central places ever seen. From Briones and the hotel you have a stunning view on the Rioja area, the mountains and all the cultural landscape around. Our room was very lovely and passionately decorated. The service is very friendly. Dinner was very good, it is in... More

Best restaurant in the area, from what folks said. Complete menu. We had began with a salad with shrimp and Iberian ham. We also ordered some baby lamb kidneys with a nice garlic sauce. Tasty. I had a nicely done steak. Nicely prepared but not the aged beef you usually find in the asadores (steak houses) in the north of... More

We were lucky to find this place as Briones does not show on our map. The 2 star hotel has 4 bedrooms over a restaurant. The room is light and airy with views overlooking the Rioja valley. At €55 per night I cannot think why you would want to spend more. Sadly the restaurant was not open on the Thursday... More

We arrived early as usual for lunch and were greeted warmly. We were having a hard time finding the right wine (we like big, bold and red) and somehow were able to communicate that to the manager/owner who brought us a bottle not on the menu that was delicious (Valenciso Rioja 2005 Reserva). Not knowing the price when we agreed... More

We stayed one night in the new Calaos * Hotel building, since the original place was full. The room was charming and includes a flat tv and wifi. Bath room is state of the art and convenient (altough the shower drain couldn't handle the rain shower yet - room nearly flooded). The bed was good and the location was quiet.... More

Loved this place - the suckling pig (their specialty) was the reason we went. The decor is a bit old school but in an interesting setting (cave under the hotel). Service was very friendly and helpful as we don't speak much Spanish. We had local starters like marinated piquillo peppers, white asparagus and then the Cochinillo (suckling pig). The wine... More

Los Calaos is a restaurant and a B&B in the charming town of Briones in La Rioja. This review is about the restaurant only, which we have visited during the past years 3 times on our visits to La Rioja. The restaurant has a special and very charming atmosphere, being located in the basement of the building in an old... More

There are 4 bedrooms here above an amazing restaurant. We have been to the restaurant a couple of times before and although not cheap, gives you the highest quality food and great service in a beautiful cellar. This time we decided to stay in the B&B - we got the lovely double room at the front with a great view... More
