Consistently good

We've been coming here for a few years now, and we've never been disappointed. Good mix of avant-garde and rebooted traditional local dishes.

Located in a small quiet square, El Origen offer a great variety of delicious food! I took a three course dinner (22€ incl. bottle of wine) and it was definitely one of my best restaurant experiences so far! I would give my highest recommendations to visit it!!

I do'nt agre e with the reviews on this restaurant. Yes it is quite and the personel is kind and availabile, brut the cousine is nothing special. I advice to order the "day menu" at 16 euros. If you chose "a la carte" you risk a robbery!

We read the opinions in this website and decided to go there. Definitely the best decision. We went on Saturday and took the "weekend menu": 20€ all included, high quality meals and great desserts. I would repeat if I had the chance, for sure.

Excellent food, wine and service. Lunch for €15, wine included, chosen from a delightfully translated menu. We sat outside in the quiet square but there was plenty of seating inside.

This restaurant was a gem! Actually the system works because I found it using Trip Advisor and it looked and sounded nice. The reviews were right and we were quite bowled over. The welcome by the Portuguese waitress who ran the whole show was excellent. She spoke enough English to communicate and she was very attentive. The food was superb... More

We had the tasting menu @ 45Eu each, for lunch last Weds 26th June - our waitress advised choice was restricted as they were closed pm and had not marketed that day. However we had an excellent lunch - 6 beautiful small courses and a nice intermediate, all accompanied by a local chardonnay and a crianza rioja, both of which... More
