My wife and I had lunch there as a result of a recommendation from the receptionist at our hotel. Although we do not speak Spanish and the waitress did not speak English, my wife was successful at ordering 4 small salads, tapas style, even though they were not on the menu. She said all 4 salads were excellent. I had... More

We had one of the set menus with 3 courses & drink - when my starter arrived, I nearly fainted - it was huge! The other half had to help me. Nice position in the square and nice staff.Good value

Chose the 25 euro lunch set menu, 3 courses and a drink included. Food was good and took a while to be served to us, which I prefer as to me it means freshly prepared food. Staff were friendly, and with it being in the Playa Mayor it has a pleasant atmosphere.

We came across this restaurant by accident rather than design, but were seduced by it's terrific location in the main Plaza, not far from the Cathedral. It did look like a typical tourist trap but actually we had a very pleasant experience here. The service was friendly and attentive, while the set menu options were fine - probably a 7... More

I was a little surprised by the mixed reviews. We had a very nice meal here. We ordered the goat cheese salad and some various snacks. It was all very good and the view on the plaza can't be beat. It's a little too pricey, but I'd go back.

A mistake.The 25 Euro evening menu should have been much better but with service from a surly waiter and food literally thrown on the table we definitely wouldn't recommend this one

Had lunch at this restaurant which enjoys an excellent location on the Plaza Mayor. Ate from the Menu of the Day priced at 14 euros for three courses. When we tried to order our choice of starter we were told that and one other starter was off the menu. Starters that came were ok but not special. Two main courses... More
