a wonderful hideaway hotel for a few days in a beautiful area.

This is one of those rare places that enchant from the moment you arrive, beautiful old building carefully retored and adapted to use as a hotel and restaurant, the food is lovingly prepared and preseneted, the modern hotel extension blends well with the original convent.

This place was recommended to us by Spanish friends do we expected a really first rate evening. It is certainly a wonderful location and had an impressive architectural conversion of what wet cloisters I guess ? ...but the Restaurant we thought lacked the polish, level of cuisine and staff service to complete the real tasteful and memorable experience we had...

Very delicate and well presented meal.The local wines are OK, the best that one can recommend is the local oil, it is produced in the area and in different varieties. I recommend the Picuant, very tasty.

You won't be disappointed. The setting is beautiful and exquisitely decorated. The service was excellent. The food was top notch and they did not skimp on the portion size. We ordered the Ternasco del Horno (lamb baked with potato, onion and tomato), which was phenomenal, and the Spring lunch special which came with a salad (strawberries, avocado, roasted macadamia nuts...

The setting is quite extraordinary and the service is truly nice. The food, however, is not superlative and therefore the place seems overpriced. For instance, the cheese in the goat-cheese salad was simply supermarket-grade chèvre (having way too much of it did not make up for its so-so quality). The entrecôte meat could have been better. We enjoyed the meal... More

My wife and I dined here while on a driving holiday through Aragon on the way to Barcelona from Valencia. The town itself seems a bit overlooked considering the beauty of the medieval centre and the church and ermita above. The dining at El Convento was also superior. The menu had influence my decision to stay there at the hotel... More

We return every year to this area due to its proximity to Motoland (motorcycle racing). After dining at this place we asked to see some rooms and we plan on staying here next time. The prices are excellent, both for the food and the rooms. The portions are quite big and I had trouble finishing my main course. My husband... More
