It was recommended by hotel. Easy walk. Quality food. At the upper end of our mid-range budget, but worth every penny!

Had a very enjoyable meal here. The views are fantastic, building beautiful and the food excellent. The degustation menu was great value at €25 each as it gave you smaller (not that small) versions of lots of courses which were really tasty. Wine was also reasonable. Staff were friendly and helpful - don't know how the owner/manager managed to hold... More

We were initially slightly put off this place because the menu outside featured the 'degustation' menu but had a big sign saying 'drinks not included' with the 'not' underlined. We wouldn't have expected drinks to have been included so it seemed a bit confrontational to mention this. Anyway, there weren't many other restaurants to choose from so went it, and... More

We enjoyed our meal here - it was very calm and seemed one of the more upmarket places to eat in Sos. We had the tasting menu which was excellent and plentiful, though not that cheap by Spanish standards. The staff were helpful and pleasant with enough English to be able to explain what we were eating. Good wine list.

Firstly let me say that I wouldn't be writing this revue if either the manager/owner or the waiter had asked what the problem was rather than just clearing the table at each course. OK, here we go: We visited the restaurant today as a couple after reading the revues by others below. We were welcomed by the owner/manager and shown... More

We had a tapas tasting menu which was varied and enjoyable - in particular the local lamb chops (from avery young lamb I think). Good value and friendly service.

Best steak I've ever had in my whole life. The quality, flavor and seasoning in the meat could not have been better. Friendly prompt service. Incredible views of the valley out the back of the restaurant. Local art work displayed within was amazing. I would return frequently if I lived close by.

We are staying in the parador for 2 nights but do not like to eat in the same restaurant twice, sp on the second day we decided to go into the nice city of sos itself. There are not too many choices, but we ended up here and did not regret it. Nice restaurant, cosy, spacious. And rathet short menu,... More
