Great lunch at a reasonable price

We had a lovely lunch here. Everything was good, but the burgers were absolutely fantastic : we had the chipotle and cheddar one, and the cheese is mixed into the meat before it is cooked, and this seems to make all the difference. Two other excellent items were an eggplant sald and the Pavlova... read more

This is a wonderful small home restaurant with the kitchen at the front and a nice small garden at the back, the owner is welcoming the customers and continuously checking the tables, this is always a good sign of a good place. The burgers were just fantastic (with the cheese inside the meat), a lemonade to die for and wonderful... More

A perfectly pleasant experience all round, without encountering anything spectacular. This isn't a restaurant, much more a cafe with a (very) few more substantial dishes available. We are lasagnas and burgers, which were competently prepared and presented without fuss or flourish, which is in keeping with the surroundings. We were satisfied, not bowled over. Many previous reviews mention the owner,... More

That description says it all. I ordered la maldita. It consisted of freshly ground beef and ground bacon and was then stuffed with cheddar cheese. Wow moment while I remember it. I am a burger fan from Texas and have eaten many burgers, but none come close to the one I had in the alley restaurant La Santa Gula. Oh,... More
