The service was first class, friendly and with an excellent choice of food and drinks. Tienda is a beautiful little place, just off the main church... More

Ploughmans and an orange juice and a beet for 10 euros? Bargain of the day or what! To top it, the food was really nice. Others in my group had the feta... More

On a recent holiday with my family, my daughters surprised me with a beautiful carrot cake, which the owner of this charming cafe made for them on request for my birthday. She even gave them fresh strawberries to decorate and a cake container to carry it to our appartment on my actual birthday. It was one of the best carrot... More

A wonderful place to unwind, the proprietor is friendly, helpful and the food is delicious with full marks for presentation. Home made cakes are a dream. Salads are freshly made and delicious.
