We had great expectations with the La Clave and visited for dinner one early evening. What I have most is those guys who are front of the restaurant trying to attract visitors to visit the place. Already this is a sing that not everything is okay with such a place. Immediately when we sat, we were forgotten, nobody was interested... More

Had deep fried shark and deep fried baby squid for starters and they were absolutely amazing! Shark was soft and tasty and baby squids very juicy. For main course had Iberian pork with potatoes, which was very good. Very small piece of pork was a bit under-cooked, so had to leave it on the plate. Despite that (for some it... More

This is a great restaurant located on a quiet, typical pedestrian street in town. Very surprised to find a 5 star vegetarian for my wife as well as a delicious meat-eater one for myself and the kids. Fantastic food, great value for money and the desserts are sublime. The service was great and the wine was very nice. Highly recommend... More

Plenty of good reviews for this restaurant, but on the night we went, it was pretty poor. We ordered a selection of tapas, which were served 2 at a time - each time the arrival of our food was immediately preceded by the ping of a microwave. The food was bland and mostly covered in a mojo sauce, which was... More

That's a good restaurant. I can't say anything was particulary good or bad here. Dinner we had here was nice. Everything we had was fresh and locally produced.

I ate here last night after the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor. Obviously the chef must have been on holiday.. But how this place managed to get 4.5/5 on Tripadvisor is a mystery to me. All four of our tapas were extremely disappointing. The "grilled vegetables" were lukewarm and seemed to have been reheated. Then I heard the ping sound and... More

This is an excellent restaurant with many standard items on the menu, especially tapas, but also some very interesting main course dishes. The rabbit and pork dishes are particularly good. Attractive modern decor. Tiny tables! Very attentive head waiter who does his best to please and suggest dishes to tempt your palate. Beware if you don't like cigarette smoke because... More
