We went twice and both time we received an excellent welcome good table and excellent fair, It's on the expensive side but good value for money. The main course was the tour de force with both fish and meat dishes being excellent. The ambiance was warm and relaxed and the main man in our section was casual and very efficient... More

We ate here hoping for the experience reflected in the other ratings but were pretty disappointed. The bread was stale throughout the loaf. The garlic soup was awful - we love garlic, but this did not have much garlic at all...just a very bland oily taste. The side salad just contained lettuce and a few cherry tomatoes, nothing else really.... More

I was treated to my birthday dinner here by a group of friends from the U.S. We received undivided attention and detail from every staff member who served our table. Several chose the 1/4 lamb portion to share and were thoroughly overwhelmed at the scrumptious roasted flavor. I enjoyed petite lamb chops and my husband was overjoyed with his delicious... More

We loved the authenticity of this historic restaurant boasting typical Spanish foods--heavy on game and the wonderful service and decor. Definitely order the lamb--the restaurants specialty. This restaurant is on calle de Cave, a great street and area to explore--don't miss the food market at the top of the street.

Visiting this restaurant was part of a planned tour for a group. It was worthwhile because it gave us an experience of the culinary variety of the Spanish palate. The lamb main dish was spectacular and delicious!

Posada de la Villa offers elegant surroundings, very good roast lamb, and lots of atmosphere. Everything we ordered was delicious and well prepared, but we thought the prices for the fresh vegetables were very high. The house wine was very good.

Wine list was also satisfactory, but what really took the prize was the roast lamb, very young and very tasty. Old town... More

We had dinner here last week. The restaurant is lovely. It has an open wood fired oven on the ground floor where they roast their meat. We sat upstairs. Cosy setting and deco. For appetizer, we had the snails and we shared the roast lamb which was for 2. The snail was good and we loved the roast lamb. Very... More

I is an excellent Spanish restaurant.it is a beautiful location,food is delicious , there also is a good wine selection. A curiosity: the restaurant is often frequented by very famous characters, as a matter of fact, my seat had been occupied by Quentin Tarantino.
