Cute little bar

We just dropped into this place for a quick drink and tapa. The tapas were a little expensive compared to out other experiences in Madrid and Granada. They were not as great either. The shrimp was not that great. It was a fun time because we were socializing at the bar with a family from my city in... read more

First time I've ever given a restaurant such a bad review and this was our worst experience in a Spanish restaurant to date, I only wish we had read the trip advisor reviews beforehand but unfortunately did not have any wifi to check. If you want bad, rude service, your plates thrown at you, staff being rude to each other... More

Thought the food was left over from when the fat waiter ate his lunch. Mixed paella had a few empty shells and hard rice, lam chops for entree was a few bones with fat & a bite of meat. The potatoes,were from McDonalds...two weeks ago. Forget Frommer's recommendation. This place has no right to be in business. It is horrible!!

During a day trip from Madrid to Toledo, we dined here for lunch -- and had a pretty average experience. I chose the 'menu del dia' - a mixed salad, beef steak and fries, beer to drink and flan for dessert. My husband ate off the regular menu and had gazpacho as an appetizer, and a main dish of habas...

We had lunch in the taberna. The front part had lots of locals but the back was full of tourists. Menu price was on a higher side for the quality of food served. Nothing special in the end.

We came here for an evening drink during our trip to Toledo. We had walked past it several times and it had always seemed reasonably busy. The wine was fine, although they didn't seem to have all the wines that were shown on the board, which becomes quite limiting in terms of choice. We also ate some croquetas, which were... More

We wandered into this place because it looked busy, and were promptly sat down. Our table was against the wall and had clumps of dust accumulated near the table where it met with the wall -- that should have been my clue to run! Now my husband was sick when we went, and had not been able to eat solid... More

Our preferred Restaurant in Toledo was closed Sunday (most Restaurants in Toledo are) so we walked through the pedestrian street of Toledo and came upon this one. We wondered why the restaurant was empty at 9.30 pm, but now we know why. A few people were watching football at the bar in front but the quite big restaurant at the... More

For about 10 euros we got the menu del dia - two large plates of fresh, tasty food, bread, wine, and a delicious chocolate cake. The staff obviously are proud of the place, and service was great!
