Lovely setting and views accompanied by lovely food

We started with Foie Gras and Pimiento del Piquillo stuffed with salt cod and served with a mushroom sauce.

The Segovia Lamb was sublime and the Duck with tangerine sauce... read more

We had a great time. The food is gorgeous, the place is amazing with stunning views and the chill out area superb for a relaxing after-dinner drink (or more!). Service was great with waiters and waitresses going out of their way to make you feel properly looked after. Highly recommendable.

What my husband and I wanted was a quality Spanish meal, with fresh local ingredients and a romantic chilled out setting, and that is exactly what we got! It was the experience overall that charmed us most, the beautiful terraza, the peace and quiet, the carefully prepared food and the most friendly helpful service we have received in some time....
