The starter I had in Otano was called "menestra de verduras" and it was delicious I recommend to anyone that loves vegetables! So many flavours and beautifully prepared. This was a very romantic meal with my partner (wasn't intended that way) but the atmosphere is very conducive to it ! Very good price for a delicious meal and great service.... More

It was very busy when I ate here last September, and when we finally did got served at our table the food was just awful. We couldn't wait to leave, and it took about 30 mins to get the bill and get out! :)

The bar had a fairly large variety of tapas but incredibly bad wine and service. I got the paired wine quickly but what annoyed me was that the people who came in after me got service. So for any single women out there I would skip this bar there are many others to choose from.

Dined here with an old friend and business colleague. We chose a menu competitively priced with plenty of choice at €13.5, with nice young Navarra red wine. Fish soup and Solomillo medallions of beef were both excellent and very filling. The dining room is very nice, service friendly and my friend told me it has hardly changed in many years,... More

This is a nice restaurant, with very good food. Service was fast and very friendly. Food was quite good. Prices were quite reasonable considering the whole meal we had. The 1st floor dining room has a nice decoration.

Very pleasant dining area with pleasant staff, bit more expensive than some eateries but worth the extra. Starts to get busy around 9.30 so eat around 8.00
