Great food and service

We went here twice in the week we were in the city as we liked it so much. The recipes are imaginative and the portions generous...so much so that I could not finish my main course of pork on our first visit. The decor is basic but the atmosphere is friendly and genuine. This area of the city is... read more

We had been recommended this restaurant by the owner of the apartment we rented and we weren't disappointed! Our dishes were beautifully presented with unusual but harmonious fresh ingredients. The portion sizes were plentiful and everything was delicious. My partner and I dine out a lot at home and on holiday but we both agreed we'd never eaten anything quite... More

Arriving after walking in the pouring rain, we were warmly greeted by the proprietor. Within minutes we ordered and were served a very good bottle of Spanish red followed by one of the best appetizers ever, a goat cheese terrine, artfully crafted with delicious accompaniments. The main entree, succulent and perfectly cooked lamb that had been tied during the cooking... More

We just love this restaurant and have never been disappointed with either the food or the service in this small, just off the main beat, family run venue. Frequented by locals so it must be good.

We were a group of 5 on the night of the Cremà. Crackling atmosphere outside; welcoming inside. Tried duck, tuna, cod and monkfish. All superb. Good crisp white wine (you can also take your own ). Well worth a visit.

We tried the "foie gras", the lambs and the pork. We asked the waiter's advice for the wine, and he advices us "Olivastro 2009" which matched perfectly with our dishes. Good memories.
