Typical Andalucian Restaurant - Very Atmospheric

Can't fault this place. The food was superb, service excellent. Ordered a selection of plates to share and each one excellent. Such a chilling environment. Will definitely return.

Food of a really lovely quality-came for both lunch where we had fried aubergine and traditional cold soup- very tasty. Quite a few locals at the bar. Evening meal also very good but what was the real highlight was the lovely young man who served us- very sweet, helpful with recommendations of both food and drinks, including a very sweet... More

As others have noted, this restaurant is off the tourist track but it was definitely worth the effort to find it. We sat in the courtyard on a blisteringly hot August night - 40° - but by 9pm it was pleasant. Great staff who obviously enjoy attending to their customers. All spoke English, including the chef de cuisine whose English... More

The restaurant is tucked away up a small alleyway, but lovely when you get inside. We ordered solomillo and cochonillo and they truly were the best pieces of pork we have ever eaten anywhere, not just in Spain. The cod and orange salad was also superb.

This restaurant is a little tricky to find, but worth the effort. A nice change from the standard tapas in Spain. Food was fresh and wonderfully prepared. Paco and Pepe were excellent hosts!

After visiting the Alcazar we stumbled across this little gem ..initially wanted a beer and wine but the barman that we met, Paco, introduced us to some great local food and wines and was a perfect host and this is well worth a visit.

Great Resturant Hidden up a little alley, so the have to trade on reputation as opposed to position. Waiter was very friendly, knew his food and could speak good English. Food was simple and very well presented and prepared. Highly recommended. Coffee good as well.

We had two salads, tomato & tuna and a cod & orange salad with rocket. Fresh, tasty food on a really hot day! Quiet little restaurant tucked down a side street where we could sit outside away from the hustle & bustle
