Restaurante El Seco is a large restaurant that has plenty of light and is beautifully decorated. Teresa and her brothers operate the restaurant, which has been open 20 years already. Teresa also waits on tables and explains the menu. The menu of the day costs 15 euros and is very good. The a la carte menu has moderately priced items... More

Called in here for dinner. Although we were the only diners in the restaurant that evening, we had a nice table in a small alcove.

We thought El Seco was a lovely family restaurant and would unhesitatingly recommend it.

The best restaurant we've visited in Spaine. Very good food, a old school, natural fleywor, fresh and tasty. Local and typical Spanish dishes in a very good quality. Perfect and friendly service. Restaurant works for lunch every day and for dinner Fraiday and Sartuday only. The price is not high, as you can expect in such good place.
